Transcript of Personal Protective Equipment
The proper cartridges must be used based on the hazard present.
You must pass a fit test.
No facial hair is allowed during fit testing. It prevents you from getting a good seal.
Respirators must be inspected before use. Even when new.
You must be trained on respirator use. RESPIRATORY PROTECTION LUNG DAMAGE Are available, see Plant Administrator (Julie).
Do not use optical insurance (UNHC Vision) for prescription safety glasses. PRESCRIPTION SAFETY GLASSES Re-training is required Annually, when there are changes in types of PPE to be used, or when there is evidence of inadequacies in an employee’s knowledge or use of assigned PPE. PPE RETRAINING REQUIREMENTS PPE training is required to cover when training is necessary, what protective equipment is necessary, how to properly don, doff, and adjust PPE, the limitations of protective equipment and proper care. Maintenance, life span, and disposal must also be covered. PPE TRAINING REQUIREMENTS PPE SELECTION “Nothing is so important that it can not be done safely.” SAFETY THROUGH TEAMWORK FOOT PROTECTION REQUIREMENTS HEAD PROTECTION EYE & FACE PROTECTION One incident is all it takes! OSHA PPE STANDARD HEAD PROTECTION TYPES OF PPE INCLUDE: Must comply with ANSI Z41-1991 FOOT PROTECTION Air-purifying
Combination THESE ARE THE 3 TYPES OF RESPIRATORS Don't Forget! LENS- Focuses light.
IRIS- Controls the amount of light entering the eye.
RECEPTORS- "Pick up" images
OPTIC NERVE- serves as a "cable" to transmit information from the receptors in your eye to your brain. Human Eye Anatomy Must comply with ANSI Z87.1-1989 EYE & FACE PROTECTION Must comply with NIOSH/OSHA RESPIRATORY PROTECTION Rio Bravo Fresno

PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT Electrical Shocks Slipping Temperature Extremes Impact Injuries Spills & Splashes Compression Injuries POTENTIAL HAZARDS - - POTENTIAL HAZARDS OSHA PPE STANDARD 29CFR1910.132 requires the following: When we make this statement we are serious! If you cannot do a job safely, do not do it. Ask for assistance or advice and get some extra eyes on it. We have full management support to do whatever is NECESSARY to get the job done safely. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) must be provided when necessary by reason of hazards encountered that are capable of causing injury or impairment. PPE is not a substitute for engineering, work practice, and/or administrative controls. Use of PPE does not eliminate the hazard so if the equipment fails, exposure may occur. Must be worn to provide protection. Personal Protective Equipment Assess the workplace to determine if hazards are present. Select and provide appropriate PPE that fits each affected employee. Train employees on how to use PPE correctly. The employer must assess the workplace to determine if hazards are present that necessitate the use of PPE.Hazards encountered may include chemical exposures, falling or dropping objects, particulates, temperature extremes, moving equipment and , sharp objects, etc. Hazard Assessments This is our Hazard Assessment which is hanging in the hallway and can also be found on the S Drive. Protects each employee from identified hazards. The requirements of PPE is that: Is of safe design and construction Is sanitary and reliable Provides each employee with a good fit Meets American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards or other applicable approval agency standard EYE & FACE PROTECTION RESPIRATORY PROTECTION TYPES OF PPE INCLUDE: FOOT PROTECTION HEAD PROTECTION ELECTRICAL PROTECTIVE DEVICES HAND & SKIN PROTECTION TYPES OF PPE INCLUDE: HEARING PROTECTION PROTECTIVE CLOTHING Required when employees are in areas where there is exposure to eye and face hazards from flying particles, molten metal, liquid chemicals, acids, caustic liquids DAMAGE TO YOUR EYES ARE OFTEN PERMANENT Thousands of people are blinded each year from work-related injuries.With eye or face protection, injuries can be prevented. Face Shields, are secondary protection only! Safety glasses or goggles must be worn while wearing a face shield! Recommended when employees could potentially be exposed to harmful dusts, fogs, fumes, mists, gases, smoke, sprays or vapors. A N95 Respirator or better is required, when using compressed air to blow wood fines from rolling stock and radiators, during clean up, while operating the Wagner, while collecting fuel samples from the hoppers, and from a walkoff if other trucks are walking off in the area . PER SAP-504 Inhalation of hazardous materials damages delicate structures of the lung. Damaged lungs are more susceptible to respiratory disease. Inhalation is the most direct route to the bloodstream. Required when employees are in areas where there is a potential for injury to the head from falling or moving objects or when they are exposed to electrical conductors which could be contacted by the head Must comply with ANSI Z89.1-1986 Electric shock: accidents result in shocks and burnsHead impact: falling or flying objects cause sprains, fractures, and concussions. Splashes, drips, etc: materials can irritate and burn eyes and skin HEAD PROTECTION Class G - reduce the force of impact of falling objects and reduce danger of contact with low-voltage electrical conductors (proof tested at 2200 volts)Class E - reduce the force of impact of falling objects and reduce danger of contact with high-voltage electrical conductors (proof tested at 20,000 volts)Class C - reduce the force of impact of falling objects, but offer no electrical protection Type 1 : Limited protection by REDUCING the force of impact from a blow only to the top of the head.Does not provide front, side or rear impact or penetration protection.Inspect daily for signs of dents, cracks, penetrations, and any damage due to impact, rough treatment or wear.If it fails inspection, remove from service. Required when employees are in areas where there is danger of foot injuries . Must provide the following:Impact and compression protection for toes.Metatarsal protection. Electrical hazard protection (600 volts or less under dry conditions).Conductive protection (minimize static electricity).Protection against punctures and penetration. All boots must have:
Slip resistant soles compatible with environment.
Assure proper fit.
And must be inspected for cuts, tears, cracks, worn soles and other damage.
Care for footwear according to manufacturer’s recommendations. Required when employees are in areas where there may be exposure to substantial electrical voltage.
Rubber is considered best material.
Must comply with ANSI requirements for rubber insulating gloves, matting, blankets, hoods, line hose and sleeves HAND & SKIN PROTECTION REQUIRED WHEN EMPLOYEES ARE IN AREAS WHERE THEIR HANDS AND BODY ARE EXPOSED TO SKIN ABSORPTION OF HARMFUL SUBSTANCES, SEVERE CUTS , OR LACERATIONS … CHEMICAL OR THERMAL BURNS * PROTECTION MUST BE COMPATIBLE WITH HAZARD POTENTIAL HAZARDS SELECTION OF GLOVES/CLOTHING GLOVE & CLOTHING SELECTION Choose compatible material as no one material is suited for all chemicals.
What may be well suited for one may be dangerous for another.
Manufacturer’s chemical resistance guide. Be careful with chemical combinations. EMPLOYEE RESPONSIBILITIES POTENTIAL HAZARDS : Traumatic Injuries , Contact Injuries , Repetitive Motion Injuries . Dependent upon type of hazard.
Check MSDS for guidelines for chemical hazards.
Not every job requires gloves as they can become a hazard.
Select the right type of Clothing (welding jacket, rubber apron for chemicals).
Jewelry can become a hazard. Employees must use PPE in accordance with training and instructions.
Most job activities require the use of PPE.PPE use is a requirement of the job.
If the employee cannot use the PPE then alternative PPE must be selected. EMPLOYER RESPONSIBILITIES It is the employers responsibility to ensure that employees are provided and use the PPE. Test Time!
