An extensive WorkSafe WA inspection campaign in cabinet-making workplaces has revealed some significant areas of concern about safety issues.
The Actidrum drum storage range handles 200 L drums and gas cylinders in various situations and includes outdoor drum storage units, flammable goods storage cabinets, gas bottle safety cages, drum funnels, drum bins and spill pallets.
HygroPro is a loop-powered, intrinsically safe moisture transmitter for measuring the moisture content in gases and non-aqueous liquids in pipeline natural gas, petrochemical, power generation, pharmaceutical, process and industrial applications.
The TSS660EA Hazchem spill kit is sufficiently large to enable fast coverage for large chemical or hazmat spills.
The Ecolab Scrub-N-G floor scrubber/vac system, designed for use in quick-service restaurants, is claimed to be able to clean floors up to 63% faster and more thoroughly than using a traditional mop and bucket as well as drying faster, thereby reducing the risk of slip-and-fall accidents.
The Exair Chip Trapper offers a fast, easy way to clean solids such as chips, swarf and shavings out of used coolants and other liquids by vacuuming the liquid that is filled with debris into a 209 L drum, trapping all the solids in a re-usable filter bag and pumping clean liquid back out.
The EL485 handheld eyewash and body spray provides quick response to hazard spills, featuring dual outlets with stay-open ball valve activation that allows for hands-free flushing of eyes in industrial, commercial and educational applications.
Greater transparency and public engagement about the potential opportunities and risks presented by nanotechnology is required, according to a new report by The Australia Institute.
With the onset of the holiday period and shutdown of many construction sites, WorkCover NSW has issued a warning to site controllers to ensure their sites are adequately secured.
Cost-benefit analysis is a challenging element of safety management because managers can choose between adequate safety and possible benefits from production with a lower level of safety. OHS law in most states allows for an almost formal assessment in managing a hazard or risk ‘as far as is reasonably practicable’. But what if that hazard is unknown? Does that mean that a cost-benefit analysis is easy because the cost cannot be determined?
Macquarie Industrial Solutions' BioSpray D2 Surface Sanitiser and Disinfectant kills 99.999% of viruses and bacteria and is said to save 55-68% on labour costs as it uses 60-88% less product. It is non-corrosive, non-flammable and no rinse.
The FAST-ACT (First Applied Sorbent Treatment - Against Chemical Threats) rapid response safety kit offers one-step neutralisation of either liquid or vapour spills of highly toxic chemicals including hydrofluoric (HF) acid.
