Provision of unsuitable protection, or an environment that encourages workers to ‘double glove’ — to wear separate cut and chemical gloves simultaneously — when faced with multiple exposures, will often lead to non-compliance of personal protective equipment (PPE) policy.
Despite the National Drug Strategy, hazardous use of licit and illicit drugs still occurs in the workplace. With proper workplace management, appropriate policies and prevention strategies, the complex issue of substance abuse can be properly addressed and mitigated.
The 2016 revision of the EN388 Mechanical Protection standard, which governs protective gloves and sleeves, introduced a range of modifications designed to enable safety managers to confidently identify the best option for their specific requirements.
Workers needs to ensure their garment can provide adequate protection barrier against the chemicals they are exposed to.
Selecting appropriate hand protection for the workforce is a balancing act. Safety managers need to consider disparate — and sometimes contradictory — factors to determine the best choice.
Understand fall arrest equipment, including design, fit, maintenance and training requirements. Learn how to implement improved height safety on site with fall prevention measures and worker training.
The new EN374 chemical and microorganism protection guidelines are in effect – do you understand the changes?
Studies show employee productivity decreases when the temperature rises above 25°C. If your space is too big for air conditioning, other methods are needed to maintain suitable working conditions and protect product integrity.
This breakthrough solution delivers advanced protection, performance and value for those working under a range of hazardous chemicals — without sacrificing the dexterity and comfort typically lost with thicker glove options.
Some industries, such as mining, are more prone to workplace injury than others. Cheap promises of reduced expenditure can lead to substantial financial consequences. Hand protection needs to be assessed on the extent to which it reduces worker injury and subsequent costs, not simply as a product with a desirable price point.
Oxygen deficiency hazards are critical safety risks that can be greatly reduced with diligent mitigation. By taking the right steps to ensure you are aware of potential risks, and can precisely determine their extent, accurate mitigations can then be taken to reduce your hazard.
Industrial operators are faced with a challenging task — to create flexible production workflows with a high level of automation, while at the same time ensuring that their people, machines and plants stay protected.
According to Safe Work Australia's 2015 statistics, falls from heights are the third-highest cause of fatalities in the workplace. There are a number of vital responsibilities within the workplace to be aware of to minimise this risk. Are you aware of yours?
The interface between human and machine is becoming a key risk factor for workplace incidents. It's difficult to properly assess the human side of that risk and easy to incorrectly blame the person, rather than look more deeply at the full picture of workplace, worker, work and equipment.
