Transcript: Most graphic communications facilities use flammable and combustible materials To reduce the rick of fire practice these precautions: Pick up dust using a vacuum cleaner Report leaking solvent containers Wipe up solvent & oil spills Use a spouted safety can when transferring small amounts of solvent Purpose of Plant Safety Summary Most of the guidelines discussed are mandated by OSHA for the protection of the independent worker The Clean Air Act Amendments, another federal initiative, requires the Environmental Protection Agency to periodically review and revise national air quality Clean Air Act Amendments continue to significantly impact lithographic printers Safety and Environmental Health Loud noise is often found in industrial facilities Excessive noise can lead to permanent hearing loss Hearing protection include earmuffs, earplugs, moldable inserts, and noise-reducing headsets Chemical Hazards Fire Prevention Noise Environmental Compliance Chemicals are used in the printing industry and you may come in contact with some substances You should know how to handle and dispose of them properly Some substances are solvents, platemaking chemicals, and ink mists In conclusion, the purpose of a plant safety is to recognize and control potential hazards. Machines and chemicals need to be properly handled and dealt with. You need to take precautions to reduce disasters from happening and always wear protective clothing. In the end, it is all about being safe. Mechanical Hazards To recognize,evaluate, and control potential hazards in a workplace Using machinery wrongly or not safely is a potential health hazard To work at a an enjoyable place, safety rules must be followed Many on-the-job physical injuries are the result of mechanical hazards that can be controlled if Machines are properly guarded Workers properly use personal protective equipment Workers use equipment safely Energy isolating devices are locked and tagged out during maintenance

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

Safety and Environmental Health

Transcript: To provide a safe working environment for those that have dangerous working areas, and the number of deaths and injuries that happen in the workplace. To inform employees about the surrounding equipment, and how to properly use them. To recognize, evaluate and control the potential hazards in a work place. Chemical Hazards Noise levels are measured in unit called decibels (dBA) Excessive noise can cause permanent hearing damage, and is found in many industrial facilities. To prevent permanent hearing loss you have to wear the proper hearing protection devices. Hearing protection devices include: earmuffs, earplugs, modifiable inserts, and noise reducing headsets. Fire hazard Pictures Summary pictures Depending on the chemical structure of a substance they can be harmful to the human body, these substances are called toxic substances. Types of chemical agents are organic solvents, Platemaking chemicals, ink mists, gases, fumes and dust. The material data sheets(MSDS) on these chemicals inform the employees about the chemical and how to properly use them, along with the procedures and the person protection you may need to possess. Environmental Compliance Mechanical Hazard Pictures $1.25 Monday, December 7th, 2015 Summary Mechanical Hazards Purpose of Plant Safety Accidents are very costly to both the person and the company, this is why we have programs, clothing and devices protecting these things. For a peaceful and safe coexestiance with humans and machines there need to be safety precautions, that need to be taken. Its also imperative that humans listen and follow these instructions and remember to read the instructions written on chemicals, machines, and other possible hazardous devices Most graphic facilities contain and use flammable substances on a daily bases, therefore it is an important part of environmental safety. Some substances can ignite and explode very easily, this is called spontaneous combustion. Practice these safety precautions to reduce the risk of a fire: Pick up dust using a vacuum cleaner, Report leaking solvent containers, wipe up solvent and oil spills, properly label substances, don't dump solvents into drain, among other things. Noise Fire Prevention Vol XCIII, No. 311 Most of the safety and health guidelines discussed in this chapter are mandated by OSHA for the protection of the individual worker. The Environmental compliance is responsible for the CAAA or the clear air amendment acts, which reduce the use of VOCs. Also, this domain deals with the CWA or the clear water act, which governs the amount of pollution that is allowed to be dumped into bodies of water. Safety & Environmental Health Many injuries that happen in an industrial area are due to mechanical hazards in not controlled. These hazards can be controlled if: Machines that are properly guarded, Energy isolating devices are locked out and tagged out during maintenance, workers properly use personal protective equipment,Workers are trained to handle materials, tools, and equipment safety . Machine guards protect parts of the human body from being electrocuted, cut, squashed or hit by flying fragments.
