Transcript: Noise levels are measured in units called decibels ( dBA ) Excessive noise can lead to permanent hearing loss The BEST way to protect against hearing damage and loss is controlling the noise or wearing ear protection if the noise cannot be controlled Injury, illness, and death is always possible while working at a plant Its always important to work safely for the benefit of you and your co-workers. Be sure to know procedures of anything you need to handle in the plant By Kiana Spencer OSHA mandates most of the protection for individual workers. Be sure to dispose of waste CORRECTLY and PROPERLY to prevent the damage to the environment or other workers. Summary VOCS ( volatile organic compounds ) are toxic substances that help the washes work well and evaporate quickly. Because they evaporate quick, VOCS can pass into worker's lungs and outside air. Do NOT use: benzene, carbon tetrachloride, gasoline, chloroform, and carbon disulfide. Wear personal protective devices ( safety glasses, gloves, respirators, etc ). There are four type of chemicals and agents 8-1 Hopefully these slides helped you learn about environmental health and safety. For more, look into the Graphic Communications textbook. The Purpose of Plant Safety Most of the safety and health guidelines are mandated by OSHA ( Occupational Safety and Health Administration ) Other groups that mandate health and safety guidelines are CAAA ( Clean Air Act Amendments ) or EPA ( Environmental Protection Agency ) Typical wastes from the commercial printing industry include paper, photochemical solutions and films, inks and ink-contaminated solvents, equipment cleaning wastes, and lubricating fluids from machinery Be sure you are trained and know how to handle materials, tools, and equipment Many on-the-job physical injuries are resulted from mechanical hazards workers should use proper personal protective devices Environmental Health and Safety Note: Chemicals MUST be discarded in an environmentally safe manner, never down the drain or sewer. Environmental Compliance Mechanical Hazards Noise Ink- and solvent-soaked rags MUST be placed in an approved and covered metal waste can Solvent Vapors, paper dust, and antisetoff powders are sources of explosion dangers. Do NOT dump solvents into drains; store and dispose them in compliance with state and local enviornmental protection standards Chemical Hazards workers should always wear personal protective devices such as gloves or goggles to protect themselves while working Fire Protection 1. Organic solvents 2. Platemaking chemicals 3. Ink Mists 4. Gases, fumes, and dust Prezi Presentation
Transcript: Environmental Compliance By: Travis McHann Machine Guards and personal protection The Safety and Health program is to inform you about potential hazards and problems in the workplace In this lesson I learned about Personal protection, Chemical hazards, fire prevention, Noise in the work place, Machine guards and the Environmental Compliance. Machine guards protect parts of the human body from being electrocuted, cut, squashed or hit by flying fragments. machine guard also protect the equipment from foreign objects. Never wear watches, rings, ties, bracelets, scarves, or loose clothing while working with machinery. Loose hair is also a hazard, as well as a rag patially tucked into a pocket hanging out. Chemical Hazards The OSHA discussed most of the safety and health guidelines. Another federal initiative The Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) requires the EPA to check the national air quality standards. The Clean Water Act governs water pollution control, regulating discharges of pollutants to U.S waters. Excessive noise can lead to permanent hearing loss To protect your ears if you cannot control the noise level wear ear protection Noise levels are measured in units called decibles If the noise level exceeds the permissible level, unwanted sound must be engineered out or you have to wear ear protection Summary Fire Prevention The purpose of the safety and health program is to recognize, evaluate, and control potential hazards in the workplace. Noise Make sure you know the types of chemicals you are using and the hazards involved Safety and Environmental Health Safety And Environmental Health Chemicals can enter the body through the skin, by inhalation, or by ingestion. make sure to wear personal protective devices when handling chemicals When disposing of chemicals, do not pour them down a drain or sewer Paper dust or antisetoff powders may explode if concentrated where a spark could ignite the mixture Ink and solvent-soaked rags must be placed in an approved and covered metal waste can. pick up dust with a vacuum cleaner Don't blow dust with a air hose Report leaking solvent containers Wipe up solvents and oil spills
Transcript: A career in this field helps others because it let's us better undertsand new types of diseases that are out there and it also tells about safety if you are ever starnded somewhere. For example you can learn about a new type of flu strain or bloodborne pathogens and come up with ways to prevent it by taking pre-cautions. Also you can learn what to do if you are ever stranded somewhere if you have an emergency kit you know what each item is used for and how to use that item is essential to surviving. I dont't think that a career in this field would be easy because you could possibly learn something new everyday and you have to take a lot of pre-cautions to keep yourself and others safe from any dangers that may be around you. In different careers there are different types of characteristics needed. Some of the characteristics needed in a career in Environmental Health and Saftey are responsible, you have to be able to pay attention, you also have to know about human/animal life and nature because sometimes you will work in the outdoors depending on which career you choose in this field. I think that you also have to enjoy the work that you are doing because essentially you are helping others. Careers There are several different careers in Environmental Health and Safety. Some of these careers are biomedical engineer, medical equipment technician, regulatory affairs specialist, medical and health services manager, and others.

Transcript: The plant safety program is a program dedicated to ensuring personal health for plant workers. The environment these workers have to work in is very brutal. Having to constantly look left and right to make sure nothing is wrong. Mechanical, chemical, fire, noise, or even personal disasters. Always use personal protection devices such as, goggles , suits, and proper foot wear.make sure everything is properly secure and you just might not catch on fire. Hazards are posed by the reciprocating, rotating, and shearing actions of various types of machinery in the industry. Machine guards protect parts of the human body from being electrocuted,cut, squashed, or hit by flying fragments. also protecting equipment from foreign objects. Machine guards are neccessary wherever hazardous machine parts are within reach of the operator. in general, the purpose of plant safety is to ensure safety to any machinery operator , or any one who works with toxic substances. a safety and health program is an enactive means of providing a safe working environment. the purpose of such a program is to recognize, evaluate , and control potential hazards in the work place. unwanted and exessively loud noise can be heared in many industrial facilities. the best way to protect against ear damage is to cotrol the noise level. when those controls do not reduce the noise to an acceptable level, ear protection must be worn. if noise exceeds permissable levels, unwanted sound must be engineered out of the operation or personal hearing protection devices must be provided and worn. purpose of plant safety Environmental compliance Environmental safety and health the amout of a toxic substance an individual is exposed to and the duration of that exposure affect the degree of harm the substance can cause. 1st line of defense against toxic substances, is to know the types of chemicals you are using and the hazards that are involved. Read the lables on chemical containers to learn specific handling procedures and potential health hazards. Chemicals can enter the body through the skin , by inhalation, or by ingestion. wear personal protection devices appropriate to the level Chemical Hazards Noise afety and health guidelines are mandated by OSHA for the protection of the individual worker. clean air act amendments requires the environmantal protection agency to periodically review and revise national air quality standards to ensure they fully protect human health. Rotating motions create hazards in two areas at the point of operation and at the point where power or motion is being transmitted from one part to another . Mechanical Hazards most graphic communications facilities use flammable and combustible materials,fire prevention is a crucial part of a plat safety program. Avoid spillage. when pouring solvents make sure the area is properly vented and source is present. ink and solvent soaked rags must be placed in an approved and covered metal waste can. the contents of the waste can must be diposed of daily to minimize the possibility of spontaneous combustion. Fire prevention Summary
