Coming home after a flood can be dangerous if precautions are not been taken
Coming Home after a Flood!

Coming Home after a Flood, Returning Home After Flood.

Going back home after a flood can be dangerous if precautions are not been taken

Coming Home after a Flood, The floodwaters are receding in Kerala as the week-long heavy rains are waning. Yet, for those planning to return home, it is advisable to ensure that there won’t be another round of deluge soon. Some tips are:

  • Don’t be alone when you return home. Take with you a couple of people, who can be of (mutual) help when there is a sudden emergency…
  • Never take children with you; the accompanists should be adults…
  • Don’t return to home at night. Go when it’s daytime, so that you can see everything around
  • Must expect reptiles inside the house and outside…
  • There can perhaps be a cooking-gas leak from the kitchen. So never use light fire — be it to use a candle or smoke a cigarette
  • Those having concrete fence around their house should take care while opening the gate. Everything is soaked in water, and hence even cement structures can collapse.
  • Take care not to slip on the watery earth. Carry with you a towel to be tied around nose and mouth; better if you have a mask. Thick gloves also help.
  • Don’t touch with bare hands a dead body — be it of a human being or animal.
  • Mark with acrylic or chalk on the wall the level till which water has risen in the house. Such an exercise would be helpful in a study on futuristic studies on the risk of living in riverine belts and low-lying areas. In 1924, when the region last had its flood of similar intensity. No such effort was made, thus leaving several regions of Kerala clueless about liveability in the in the time of a deluge
  • Switch of the main electricity board before you enter the house. Also ensure that LPG cylinders are switched off.
  • Wooden doors would have bloated in the floods; so it would be tough to pull or push them while trying to open. Don’t apply too much force in one go, because the drenched walls too would not be in the best of shape.
  • Be inside house only after opening windows and letting fresh air come in.
  • If you sense any kind of unnatural or foul smell, don’t stay inside for long
  • Don’t open refrigerators carelessly. The rotten food, especial non-vegetarian, would have produced dangerous gases like methane that can exit with force.
  • Make an estimate of the financial loss of every object inside, click their pictures
  • Open taps and flushes to see if it is mud water or fresh water coming out
  • Whenever there is sunlight, let the windows remain open for fresh air to circulate the inside of the house.
  • Gather a definite idea with the rest in the locality on where to dump things that have gone into disuse owing to the flood. The decayed stuff should not just to be casually thrown somewhere.

Cleaning up and repairing:

  • Get help

  • Disinfection protection.

    Once floodwaters have receded, carefully clean and disinfect each wet item to protect your home and family from sewage or chemical contaminants. Be certain to wear protective clothing, including rubber gloves and boots, during cleanup activities.

  • Floods and food.

    Any items that have come in contact with floodwater should be thrown out. This includes bottled water, canned goods, plastic utensils, baby bottles, and more. When in doubt, throw it out!

  • Scammers and con artists.

    Hire only professional, reputable contractors for cleanup and repair needs. Avoid the “drive-by” contractor.

  • Safe drainage.

    Should your basement become flooded, drain it gradually – about 1/3 per day – to prevent structurally damage and collapse that may result from rapid water removal.

  • Insurance claims.

    Contact your insurance agents to discuss flash flood recovery claims.

  • Need help?

    Stay tuned to your TV or radio during flash flood recovery for information on assistance available in your area through government or other organizations.

Safety equipment for employers

TYPES OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) TO GUARANTEE YOUR SAFETY

As an employer, you are in charge of a safe and healthy working environment for your employees. You are familiar with the safety risks within your sector, as well as the measures you can take to counteract these risks.

WHAT IS PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)?

PPE means personal protective equipment or equipment you use to guarantee your (own) safety.

Use PPE always and anywhere where necessary. Observe the instructions for use, maintain them well and check regularly if they still offer sufficient protection. But when do you use what type of protection?

These 7 tips will help you on your way.

1. SAFETY FOR THE HEAD

safetyWearing a helmet offers protection and can prevent head injuries. Select a sturdy helmet that is adapted to the working conditions. These days you can find many elegant designs and you can choose extra options such as an adjustable interior harness and comfortable sweatbands.

2. PROTECT YOUR EYES

protect eyesThe eyes are the most complex and fragile parts of our body. Each day, more than 600 people worldwide sustain eye injuries during their work. Thanks to a good pair of safety glasses, these injuries could be prevented. Do you come into contact with bright light or infrared radiation? Then welding goggles or a shield offer the ideal protection!

3. HEARING PROTECTION

hearingAre you working in an environment with high sound levels? In that case it is very important to consider hearing protection. Earplugs are very comfortable, but earmuffs are convenient on the work floor as you can quickly put these on or take them off.

4. MAINTAIN A GOOD RESPIRATION

respirationWearing a mask at work is no luxury, definitely not when coming into contact with hazardous materials. 15% of the employees within the EU inhale vapours, smoke, powder or dusk while performing their job. Dust masks offer protection against fine dust and other dangerous particles. If the materials are truly toxic, use a full-face mask. This adheres tightly to the face, to protect the nose and mouth against harmful pollution.

5. PROTECT YOUR HANDS WITH THE RIGHT GLOVES

protectionHands and fingers are often injured, so it is vital to protect them properly. Depending on the sector you work in, you can choose from gloves for different applications (Protection):

  • protection against vibrations
  • against cuts by sharp materials
  • from cold or heat
  • bacteriological risks
  • splashes from diluted chemicals.

6. PROTECTION FOR THE FEET

feet protectionEven your feet need solid protection. Safety shoes (type Sb, S1, S2 or S3) and boots (type S4 or S5) are the ideal solution to protect the feet against heavy weights. An antiskid sole is useful when working in a damp environment, definitely if you know that 16,2% of all industrial accidents are caused by tripping or sliding. On slippery surfaces, such as snow and ice, shoe claws are recommended. Special socks can provide extra comfort.

7. WEAR THE CORRECT WORK CLOTHING

work clothingPreventing accidents is crucial in a crowded workshop. That is why a good visibility at work is a must: a high-visibility jacket and pants made of a strong fabric can help prevent accidents. Just like the hand protection, there are versions for different applications.

WORST-CASE SCENARIO

Prevention is better than cure. A smart thing is to be prepared for the worst. A classic first-aid kit is no luxury but a first-aid kit for the eyes can also be an essential first aid. If the employee comes into contact with chemicals, a safety shower is mandatory, so that he can rinse the substances off his body at any moment.

pictograms

PREVENTING ACCIDENTS: PICTOGRAMS

Not only is preparing your workshop for accidents a smart thing to do, it is even smarter to organise your workshop in such a way that no serious accidents can take place. A simple way to make your workshop safer is to use pictograms: indicating flammable materials, the necessary use of hearing protection, indicating emergency exits …

You can find all pictograms in the ‘Labels & decals’ catalogue

NEBOSH Command Words

NEBOSH Command Words

NEBOSH Command Words

There are many things to consider while attempting the NEBOSH, but the main thing that the student should follow is the NEBOSH Command Words. These are the most important to achieve the NEBOSH IGC in the first attempt. Most of the students don’t follow the rules and some of them don’t know about that so the reason they get failed. These are the following NEBOSH command words.

  1. Identify

To give reference to an item, which could be its name or title.

NB: normally a word or phrase will be sufficient, provided the reference is clear.

For Example:

Identify FOUR hazards associated with excavations? (4)

 Sufficient answers would include:

Collapse of the sides

Water Ingress

Falling Material

Undergrounds Services

  1. Give

To provide short, factual answers. To offer for consideration, acceptance, or use of another.

NB: normally a single word, phrase or sentence will be sufficient. Give an example of; Give the meaning of.

For Example:

Identify FOUR types of safety sign AND Give an example in EACH case. (4)

Sufficient answers would include:

Prohibition signs – eg No smoking

Warning signs – eg Caution hot surface

Mandatory signs – eg Wear ear protection

Emergency or safe condition signs – eg first-aid box

  1. Outline

To indicate the principal features or different parts of.

NB: an exhaustive description is not required. What is sought is a brief summary of the major aspects of whatever is stated in the question

To gain the marks for the outline example questions below, the same breadth of the answer is required as for an identify answer, but now, additional information will be required to satisfy the depth of an outline. NEBOSH Command Words

For Example:

Outline FOUR hazards associated with excavations? (4)

Sufficient answers would include:

Collapse of the sides – Unsupported trench or incorrect angle of the sides.

Water ingress –Through heavy rain or burst water main.

Falling materials –Spoil dug from excavation or materials and tools stored at ground level could fall in.

Underground services –Contact or rupturing of electricity, gas or water utilities.

  1. Describe

To give a detailed written account of the distinctive features of a subject. The account should be factual, without any attempt to explain.

When describing a subject (or object) a test of sufficient detail would be that another person would be able to visualize what you are describing.

For Example:

Describe the mechanical hazards associated with a bench grinder. (8)

A sufficient answer would be:

An entanglement hazard would be associated with the rotating spindle that the abrasive wheel is mounted on. Drawing in and trapping is associated with the gap between the tool rest and the rotating abrasive wheel. Friction or abrasion hazards would be associated with the surface of the rotating abrasive wheel and stabbing or puncture hazards could be created by flying fragments or pieces of ejected broken wheel.

  1. Explain

To provide an understanding. To make an idea or relationship clear.

NB: this command word is testing the candidate’s ability to know or understand why or how something happens. Is often associated with the words ‘how’ or ‘why’.

For Example:

Explain how sensitive protective equipment (trip device) can reduce the risk of contact with moving parts of machinery. (8)

A sufficient answer would be:

Sensitive protective equipment is designed to identify the presence of a person or body part within the danger zone of machinery. Examples of such devices include pressure mats and light beams that are connected to the machine controls and would stop the machine rapidly should a person or body part be detected.

Responding to command words in questions

It is important to read the whole question and to understand what the question requires as the command word on its own will need to be reinforced by the remainder of the question.

Many candidates miss out on gaining marks because they do not read the question carefully enough and do not think about their answer thoroughly before writing it down.

Candidates need to think about each question.

  • what is the command word?
  • how do I need to improve to gain marks?
  • when it is or is not relevant to the question?

In order to pass exam,  a brief answer plan is an essential aid to ensuring that answers are well thought out and structured.

NEBOSH applies a ‘positive marking’ approach; that is, marks are awarded for correct material in candidates’ answers, rather than being deducted for incorrect or missing material.

Remeber:

Guidance on NEBOSH Commands Words are very important to pass the NEBOSH in first attempt. NEBOSH Command Words

risks from electricity

What are the risks from electricity?

Harm can be caused to any person when they are exposed to ‘live parts’ that are either touched directly or indirectly by means of some conducting object or material. Voltages over 50 volts AC or 120 volts DC are considered hazardous.

Electricity can kill. Each year about 1000 accidents at work involving electric shocks or burns are reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Around 30 of these are fatal, most of them arising from contact with overhead or underground power cables.

Shocks from faulty equipment can cause severe and permanent injury and can also lead to indirect injuries, due to falls from ladders, scaffolds, or other work platforms.

Faulty electrical appliances can also lead to fires. As well as causing injuries and loss of life, fires cause damage to plant, equipment and property.

WHO IS MOST AT RISK FROM ELECTRICITY?

Anyone can be exposed to the dangers of electricity while at work and everyone should be made aware of the dangers.

Those most at risk include maintenance staff, those working with electrical plant, equipment and machinery, and people working in harsh environments such as construction sites.

Most electrical accidents occur because individuals:

  • are working on or near equipment which is thought to be dead but which is, in fact, live
  • are working on or near equipment which is known to be live, but where those involved are without adequate training or appropriate equipment, or they have not taken adequate precautions
  • misuse equipment or use electrical equipment which they know to be faulty.

ASSESSING THE RISKS FROM ELECTRICITY

Consider the following hazards in your risk assessment:

Live parts Normal mains voltage, 230 volts AC, can kill. Also, contact with live parts can cause shocks and burns.

Fire Electrical faults can cause fires. This is particularly true where the equipment contains a heat source (e.g. heaters, including water heaters, washing machines, ovens, heat-seal packaging equipment).

Flammable or explosive atmospheres Electricity can be a source of ignition in a potentially flammable or explosive atmosphere, e.g. in spray paint booths or around refuelling areas.

Where and how electricity is used The risks from electricity are greatest in harsh conditions.

In wet conditions, unsuitable equipment can easily become live and can make its surroundings live.

While outdoors, equipment may not only become wet but may be at greater risk of damage.

In cramped with a lot of earthed metalwork, such as inside tanks, ducts and silos, if an electrical fault develops it can be very difficult to avoid a shock.

Types of equipment in use Some items of equipment can also involve greater risk than others. Extension leads are particularly liable to damage to their plugs and sockets, cables, and electrical connections. Other flexible leads, particularly those connected to equipment that is moved a great deal, can suffer from similar problems.

BASIC ELECTRICAL SAFETY

Below are some minimum steps you should take to ensure electrical safety.

Mains supplies

  • install new electrical systems to BS 7671 Requirements for Electrical Installations
  • maintain all electrical installations in good working order
  • provide enough socket-outlets for equipment in use
  • avoid overloading socket-outlets – using adaptors can cause fires
  • provide an accessible and clearly identified switch (‘Emergency Off’ or ‘EMO’ button) near fixed machinery to cut off power in an emergency
  • for portable equipment, connect to nearby socket-outlets so that it can be easily disconnected in an emergency.

Use the right equipment

  • choose electrical equipment that is suitable for its working environment
  • ensure that equipment is safe when supplied and maintain it in a safe condition
  • electrical equipment used in flammable/explosive atmospheres should be designed not to produce sparks. Seek specialist advice when choosing this type of equipment.
  • protect light bulbs and other easily damaged equipment – there is a risk of electric shock if they are broken.

Maintenance and repairs

  • ensure equipment is fitted with the correctly rated fuse.
  • ensure cable ends always have their outer sheaths firmly clamped to stop wires working loose from plugs or inside equipment
  • replace damaged sections of cable completely – never repair cuts with insulating tape.
  • use proper connectors to join lengths of cable – don’t use connector blocks covered in insulating tape or ‘splice’ wires by twisting them together
  • some equipment is double insulated. These are often marked with a ‘double-square’ symbol. The supply leads have only two wires – live (brown) and neutral (blue)
  • make sure all wires are connected securely if the 13A plug is not a moulded-on type.

GOOD PRACTICES:

Use other forms of power where possible Electrical risks can sometimes be eliminated by using air, hydraulic or hand-powered tools. These are especially useful in harsh conditions, but remember they could introduce other hazards.

Reduce the voltage Using lower voltages can reduce or eliminate the risks of electric shocks and burns:

  • portable tools are available which can be run from a 110 volts, centre-tapped-to-earth supply, (usually from a transformer)
  • where electrically powered tools are used, battery-operated are safest
  • temporary lighting can be run at lower voltages, e.g. 12, 25, 50 or 110 volts.

Use Residual Current Devices (RCDs) for extra safety An RCD can provide additional safety. An RCD detects some (but not all) faults in the electrical system and rapidly switches off the supply.

The best place for an RCD is built into the main supply or the socket-outlet, as this means that the supply cables are permanently protected.

If this is not possible, use a plug incorporating an RCD or a plug-in RCD adaptor. RCDs for protecting people have a rated tripping current (sensitivity) of not more than 30 milliamps (mA).

Remember:

  • an RCD is a valuable safety device – never bypass it
  • if the RCD trips, it is a sign there is a fault. Check the system before using it again.
  • if the RCD trips frequently and no fault can be found in the system, consult the manufacturer of the RCD
  • use the RCD test button regularly to check that its mechanism is free and functioning

Accident Investigation

WHAT IS IT?

Accident investigation is the process of determining the root causes of accidents, on-the-job injuries, property damage, and close calls in order to prevent them from occurring again.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Accident investigation will lead you to the real cause of why something happened, and armed with that knowledge, you can take affirmative steps to prevent future accidents from occurring.

WHAT IS REQUIRED?

  • Develop an accident investigation process that focuses on:

o fact finding, not fault finding

o determining the root causes of why the event occurred

o making changes so the event does not happen again.

  • Set a policy that accidents and close calls (large and small) will be investigated with equal vigor.
  • Provide training and tools to staff conducting accident investigations.
  • Audit completed investigations to ensure they are being completed on a timely basis with an adequate level of detail.

 

HOW DO YOU DO IT?

Workplace accidents should be investigated as soon as possible after they occur. The goals of a timely and thorough accident investigation should be to:

  • determine the cause of the accident
  • prevent the accident from happening again
  • improve health and safety conditions in the workplace
  • determine whether a violation of federal or state safety and health standards contributed to the accident
  • determine company or individual liability in case of future legal action
  • determine the need for repairs or replacement of damaged items
  • determine the need for additional education and training for employees.

 

A thorough and complete accident investigation involves several steps, specifically:

  • background investigation
  • site investigation
  • interviews
  • analysis and reporting.

 

The following outline discusses these steps in more detail.

Background investigation

  • Review the employment and injury records of any injured employee(s) and/or others whose actions contributed to the accident.
  • Review reports of any injuries and/or damage to equipment, machines, building, or property.
  • Compile a list of witnesses to the accident.
  • Gather information about normal conditions and/or operations of the area. Information would include maps, floor plans, wiring diagrams, and any other piping or architectural drawings or operational guidelines.
  • Meet with supervisors and other employees responsible for the affected area and employees of the affected area to outline the purpose and goals of the investigation. Ensure that there is a basic understanding of the materials, equipment, operation, or process involved.

 

Site investigation

  • Arrive at the scene of the accident as soon as possible after the incident has occurred.
  • Restrict the accident scene to authorized persons during the site investigation.
  • Ensure that movable evidence is secured to prevent tampering or other changes.
  • Determine what physical changes may have occurred following the accident. Changes could be attributed to clean-up, weather, maintenance, and normal usage.
  • Tour the entire area and record pertinent initial perceptions of the status and condition of building, grounds, equipment, lighting, and ventilation.
  • Sketch or draw parts of the accident scene where equipment or machinery involved in the accident is located or where actions that contributed to the accident occurred. Use the following guidelines when sketching or drawing an accident scene:

o Use squared (graph) paper. If distance or size is important determine the value for each square and note this at the bottom of each sketch.

o Orient each sketch with an arrow pointing north.

o Label all objects.

o Use arrows to indicate paths of travel of individuals and/or vehicles.

o Indicate the distance of movable objects from two fixed locations.

o Note the location of witnesses present at the time of the accident.

  • Take photographs of the overall scene, damaged areas, and pertinent machinery and/or equipment. Photographs should be made before any adjustments occur to the scene of the accident.

o Prior to taking photographs, determine if the area has been altered. If items have been moved or changed, do not move them back for photographs. Photograph items as found, yet document the change and the individual responsible or knowledgeable of the change.

o For close-ups, use reference items such as a ruler or level measurer to indicate size or slope of the items photographed. For each close-up, photograph the same item from a distance to provide a reference. Photograph the area where the injured worker(s) were found, using reference marks to indicate individuals’ placement.

 

Interviews

  • Prepare a list of witnesses and other individuals to be interviewed.
  • When possible, do not allow more than 24 hours to elapse before conducting interviews.
  • Conduct interviews in a private setting to avoid interruptions and distractions.
  • Prepare a list of questions in advance of any interview. Use questions that require narrative answers. Avoid questions that suggest an expected answer (Example: “Isn’t it true that the injured employee was running?”) or that can be answered with either “yes” or “no.” Questions should be structured from the following six key elements: Who? What? Where? When? How? Why?

o Who questions identify all parties involved.

o What questions identify pertinent actions, events, and physical objects.

o Where questions locate participants, witnesses, and key objects involved in the accident.

o When questions determine the time of the accident and establish relationships between pairs of activities or events.

o How questions provide information on the interaction and relationships among participants, equipment, and the events leading up to, during, and after the accident.

o Why questions determine unsafe acts or hazardous conditions.

  • Before starting the interview, advise the person to be interviewed that the purpose of the session is to determine the cause of the accident and to prevent any future occurrence.
  • Start the interview by asking the individual to describe what happened. Do not interrupt with questions.
  • After the individual has given his or her initial statement, ask the prepared questions and any additional questions prompted by the individual’s statement.
  • Record the individual’s statement, the questions asked, and the answers received in the order that they occur. Let the individual talk, but not ramble. Interrupt when necessary to turn the conversation back to the subject at hand.
  • Close the interview when all questions have been answered and when the individual indicates no additional information can be provided. Encourage the individual to contact you if other pertinent information comes to mind. Immediately after the interview, review the individual’s statement and answers and record your impressions and judgments.

 

Analysis and reporting

After all fact-finding efforts are complete, analyze the data to determine all causes of the accident. Then prepare a comprehensive report outlining the identified causes and describing corrective measures to prevent similar future accidents. To best understand why an accident occurred and to plan for preventive actions, it is important to realize that most accidents have more than one cause. It is important to realize that an accident may be the result of the interaction of seemingly unrelated events.

Causes

The cause of an accident is any behavior, condition, act, or omission without which the accident may not have happened, or the severity of the injuries would have been less. Causes can be characterized as direct, indirect, or contributing.

  • Direct causes are acts or omissions that directly relate to the accident. These could include workers or other individuals who:

o operate equipment in an unsafe manner or operate equipment known to have safety defects or deficiencies

o do not follow required or necessary safety precautions or procedures

o fail to correct known damage to or faulty operations of equipment, machinery, or vehicles.

  • Indirect causes are conditions that directly contribute to the occurrence of a direct cause. These causes could include:

o defective or unusual conditions of equipment, machinery, vehicles, buildings, or grounds

o defective or unusual conditions of workers or other individuals, such as intoxication, physical defects or limitations, or psychological defects or limitations

o hazardous or unusual conditions of weather.

  • Contributing causes are conditions, programs, acts, or omissions that are not directly related to the accident but did contribute to the occurrence or existence of a direct or indirect cause. These causes could include lack of or inadequate:

o safety program

o training programs

o preventive maintenance programs

o corrective maintenance programs

o supervision

o enforcement

o design of equipment, machinery, vehicles, or facilities

o advisory or warning communication, labels, or signs.

 

Analysis

  • Collect and correlate data. The following are examples of materials that can be used to ascertain all causes related to the accident. These materials should be collected and organized to allow investigators to review all information at one time:

o summary of employment and injury records of pertinent employees

o summary of orientation and training records for pertinent employees

o summary of normal conditions and/or operation of the pertinent area

o description of usual and safe operations or use of materials, equipment, facilities, operations, or processes involved

o summary of inspections of materials, equipment, and facilities involved

o summary of witness statements that includes an outline of areas of agreement and disagreement between statements

o summary of pertinent records of preventive maintenance or repair

o written company policies or directives that pertain to the materials, equipment, facilities, operations, or processes involved.

  • Review data and pose hypothetical causes. The investigator should review all pertinent data. After the initial review, the investigator should outline potential direct, indirect, and contributing causes. It is important that all potential causes be listed and that the investigator not draw preliminary conclusions as to the probability that a potential cause was or was not related to the incident. It may be helpful to have a second individual conduct an independent review of the pertinent data to list all of the potential causes.
  • Test potential causes. Review again the pertinent data looking for specific data that affirm or reject each potential cause. Connect related direct, indirect, and contributing causes.

 

Reporting

A written report should be generated that contains the following sections:

  • Statement of the problem. This section should include:

o a review of the incident

o a summary of injuries, lost time, and equipment and/or property damage.

  • Review of the data. This section should include:

o a summary of witness statements

o a summary of relevant findings concerning the accident and work history of affected employees and the operation of machinery or equipment

o a storyboard with photographs or sketches

o an overview of existing, written company policies or directives.

  • Causes. This section should list the direct, indirect, and contributing causes that have been affirmed by the data. A reference should be made to the data that support each cause.
  • Recommendations. These should be based directly on each of the noted causes. These recommendations could include the following:

o more or improved training for employees

o new company policies or directives, or better clarification or dissemination of existing ones

o improved communication between employees, supervisors, and management

o design or operation changes or improvements to machines, equipment, or processes

o different or improved safety equipment

o different or improved protection from natural phenomena or disasters

o different or improved systems to account for possible physical, physiological, or psychological limitations of employees, customers, or others.

NEBOSH GC3 – HEALTH AND SAFETY PRACTICAL APPLICATION – UNIT : III

Guidance and information for candidates

This document provides comprehensive guidance on the presentation and submission of the Unit GC3 practical application. It includes guidance on the structure and style of the report. Candidates should study this document carefully before submitting their practical application.
The guidance should be read carefully in conjunction with the practical application mark scheme, which is included in this guidance document, to provide a clear guide to the requirements of the practical application.

Introduction

The aim of this unit is to assess a candidate’s ability to complete successfully two activities:
· To carry out, unaided, a safety inspection of a workplace, identifying the more common hazards, deciding whether they are adequately controlled and, where necessary, suggesting appropriate and cost effective control measures.
· To prepare a report that persuasively urges management to take appropriate action, explaining why such action is needed (including reference to possible breaches of standards and identifying practical legislation and control measures that should be implemented.
This will require candidates to apply the knowledge and understanding gained from their studies of elements of Units NGC1 and GC2 or Units IGC1 and GC2 in a practical environment and to carry out an evaluation of information gathered during the inspection. The time allowed to complete the assessment is not restricted but candidates should aim to complete the inspection and the report in two hours. The practical application may be submitted in the candidate’s own handwriting or be word processed.
The submission must include:
· completed observation sheets covering a number and range of hazards and good practice, identifying suitable control measures and timescales;
· an introduction and executive summary;
· main findings of the completed inspection;
· conclusions which summarise the main issues identified in the candidate’s workplace;
· completed recommendations table.
The practical application must be carried out in the candidate’s own workplace. The workplace should be large enough to provide a sufficient range of hazards in the areas covered to provide an adequate range for identification. If the workplace is very large, in order that the practical application is manageable the candidate should limit the area considered.
Where the candidate does not have access to a workplace, the course provider should be consulted to help in making arrangements for the candidate to carry out the practical application at suitable premises. Providers seeking to run the practical in this way should contact NEBOSH for advice and approval.
Management at the premises should be consulted to ensure the candidate can carry out the inspection without endangering their own health and safety.
Where confidentiality requires, locations and company names may be omitted from the report, or alternatively guidance should be sought from NEBOSH.
Candidates do not require supervision when carrying out the practical application but the candidate must sign a declaration that the submission is their own work (Appendix 1). If this declaration is not submitted the candidate’s result may be declared void. A signature can be electronic or can be faxed.
Candidates must note that accredited course providers cannot comment on practical applications before submission or marking.
Candidates, employers and internal assessors should be aware that the status of the inspection undertaken to fulfil the requirements of Unit GC3 is for educational purposes only.

Date of Assessment

Assessment of the practical unit (GC3) must normally take place within 10 working days of (before or after) the date of the NGC1/IGC1 and/or GC2 written papers (the ‘date of the examination’). The results sheet completed by the accredited course provider must reach NEBOSH by no later than 15 working days after the date of the examination (Appendix 2).
If a candidate is absent from the written papers because of illness corroborated by a doctor’s note, but successfully completes the GC3 unit within the 10 working day deadline, the result will stand. If a candidate is unable to complete the GC3 unit under similar circumstances, NEBOSH may allow it to be taken at a later date beyond the normal 10 working day deadline.
The accredited course provider should advise the candidate of the latest date by which the completed report and observation sheets must be received by the course provider for marking. It is the responsibility of the course provider to ensure that the results of the practical (GC3) are available to NEBOSH by no later than 15 working days after the date of the examination for NGC1/IGC1 and/or GC2.
Completion of study for both NGC1 and GC2 or IGC1 and GC2 is recommended in order to undertake the practical application unit GC3.
Candidates planning to post their reports to the course provider should be reminded of the need to guard against loss in the post by sending their work by trackable delivery. Candidates are therefore advised to retain copies of both their completed observation sheets and report.

Marking

Practical applications will be marked by an internal assessor – a person proposed to NEBOSH by an accredited course provider and approved by NEBOSH. Internal assessors will be at least Grad IOSH of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health or equivalent and working towards chartered membership, CMIOSH, (or similar).
A marking sheet (Appendix 3) will be completed by the internal assessor for each candidate and attached to the candidate’s report. The total percentage mark for each candidate will be transferred to a results sheet (Appendix 2) and returned to NEBOSH by no later than 15 working days after the examination date of NGC1/ICG1 and/or GC2.
Candidates must achieve the pass standard (60%) in this unit in order to satisfy the criteria for the qualification.
Moderation
Marked GC3 assessments are subject to external moderation by NEBOSH to monitor the standard being set and marks awarded by the internal assessor may be adjusted accordingly.
The observation sheets and report should not be sent to NEBOSH unless they are called in. However, the observation sheet and report should be retained with the mark sheet for each candidate for at least six weeks following the date of issue by NEBOSH of the examination results to which they relate. Practical applications may be called in at any time from the date of examination until six weeks after the issue of results.
Candidates may lodge an EAR (enquiry about result) within the timeframe as advised on their URN (unit result notification).

Retention of practical samples by accredited course providers

NEBOSH monitors the consistency of internal assessment by accredited course providers (eg practicals marked by the course provider) over time. Accredited course providers are therefore required to retain representative samples of practical applications (eg high pass, low pass, refer) for each standard sitting or cohort for a rolling three year period.
The sample of practicals to be retained by accredited course providers will be no more than 24 scripts per year per qualification, but providers may choose to retain more for internal quality assurance purposes. Providers should retain the archived sample for three years in a manner that makes them easily retrievable. This is intended to enable course provider staff to monitor the standards of candidate performance in the practical application over time, and make improvements to their delivery when necessary. Additionally, the samples will serve as exemplar materials for practical application assessors appointed by accredited course providers to use as guidance in their assessment decisions.
Sampling of accredited course provider-marked scripts enables NEBOSH to ensure that the standard of marking for internal assessment remains consistent over time both within and between accredited course providers. Using archived materials in this way is intended to maintain marking standards and enhance parity between the marks before and after moderation.
Other scripts should be disposed of as confidential waste.

Completion of observation sheets

Candidates will be supplied with a sufficient number of observation sheets from a course provider which may be photocopied for the purpose. An example observation sheet is given at Appendix 4. The observation sheets must be completed during the inspection. Only brief details of each hazard are required including where the hazard was located and the consequences of the hazard. For example, ‘housekeeping could be better’ does not give enough information about the particular hazard.
The observation sheets should be completed by:
· identifying, in the left hand column, any hazards, unsafe work practices and examples of good practice observed during the inspection;
· commenting in the next column, on the adequacy of existing controls and identifying any immediate and longer term remedial actions needed;
· stating, in the right hand column a reasonable timescale for the actions identified.
There should be sufficient information on the observation sheets to enable the candidate to complete a report to management on their findings. Candidates are also advised to make notes on the area inspected, including activities taking place, in order to complete the introduction to their report. Whilst poor spelling and grammar will not be marked or penalised, if the assessor is unable to read or to understand the notes made by candidates during their inspection then invariably fewer marks will be awarded than would otherwise have been the case. The practical application may be submitted in the candidate’s own handwriting or word processed.

Marking of observation sheets

Candidates are advised to refer to the marking sheet given at Appendix 3 and the marking matrix given at Appendix 6.
Range and outline of hazards and consequences (15 marks)
Candidates should outline 20 uncontrolled hazards to gain maximum marks, but are strongly recommended to outline more than 20 (but no more than 30) in case of duplication or inappropriate hazards being outlined. Candidates must demonstrate their understanding of how identified hazards have the potential to cause harm, for example, boxes stored on the floor may cause obstruction of access, egress routes and / or a potential of musculoskeletal injury if lifted. This information must be recorded in the ‘Hazards and consequences’ column. Candidates are expected to outline different types of hazards such as hazardous substances, fire, electrical, work equipment, ergonomic, housekeeping, noise, vibration, transport, manual handling and health hazards and should also consider if there are any welfare and environmental problems. At least five different types of hazard must be included for maximum marks. In addition candidates are expected to comment on situations where there is adequate control of hazards and where good practice is being observed, although candidates should place the emphasis on uncontrolled hazards. A maximum of 1 mark is available for good practice.
Candidates who repeat identical hazards will only be awarded ONE mark for that hazard (eg inadequate labelling of an unknown chemical substance). Candidates should focus on physical conditions and not on poor policies and procedures.
It is important to note that credit can only be gained in this section for clearly outlined hazards.
Identification of suitable control measures and timescales (15 marks)
Candidates are expected to give thought to what is required to immediately control the risk from each outlined hazard AND to identify the need for long term actions to control the risk.
This requires candidates to distinguish between the symptoms and the root causes of hazards.
For example, the immediate action on a spillage may be ‘clean up spillage and inform supervisor’ whereas longer term actions might include appropriate supervisor training, regular inspections, and investigation of the source of the leak. A further longer term action may be to modify the work process to tackle the root cause. The proposed control measures must not only remove or control the hazard but must also be realistic in terms of timescales. Candidates should indicate a measure of time eg supervisor training to be completed within three months.
If existing controls are in place and considered adequate, candidates should consider any measures required to maintain this level of control.
Candidates should avoid generic phrases being repeatedly used eg ‘monitor’ and ‘train staff’. Candidates should give appropriate clarification by giving examples of appropriate monitoring and the type of training required.
Candidates should be aware that if unsuitable control measures are suggested full marks cannot be awarded. Short term measures to improve housekeeping will do little to improve the lack of safety management systems and procedures evidenced by materials and equipment left lying around.
Candidates should also note that where the hazard is not clearly outlined full credit cannot be gained for control measures as assessors will be unable to determine appropriateness of the measures proposed.

Completion of report

Candidates should use the ‘Candidate report template’ given at Appendix 5 to structure their report. The length of the report should be between 700 and 1000 words and should not simply duplicate the observation sheets. Candidates can consult reference books when preparing the report, but plagiarism will be dealt with as malpractice.
The report should not contain photographs, printed text or any other extraneous material.
The report should be written in such terms that a manager would be able to take reasonable action based on facts. Reports based on unsupported generalities and those that simply reiterate the contents of the observation sheets will be awarded low marks.
Candidates should aim to complete their report in one hour.
If none of the criteria to award marks is met, then zero marks will be awarded.

Marking of report

Candidates are advised to refer to the marking sheet given at Appendix 3 and the marking matrix given at Appendix 6.

Report – Introduction and Executive Summary

Introduction providing an overview of the chosen area (5 marks)
Candidates should start with the details of the inspection, stating where and when the inspection took place. A clear and appropriate description of the chosen area and of the activities occurring in the area should be given.
Executive summary (5 marks)
The executive summary should be written after the candidate has completed the rest of the report but it should be inserted at the beginning of the report. The purpose of the executive summary is to provide a concise overview of the important points arising from the work and summarise the main conclusions and recommendations arising from it.
An executive summary should provide sufficient information to enable a busy manager to make a decision as to whether or not to read the full report and to provide a persuasive case for implementation of recommendations made.

Report – Main findings of the inspection

The main findings of the inspection should form the main body of the report and include the following aspects:
The report should be well structured, the appropriate length and not duplicate observation sheets. The report should be concise, readable and highly selective in terms of action required by management. Candidates should include balanced arguments on why action is needed and explain the effect it would have on the standards of health and safety at the workplace and the possible effects on the business overall.
Quality of interpretation of findings (15 marks)
There should be a logical progression from the hazards outlined on the observation sheets. The key issues should be appropriately selected and discussed, and should not include any hazards not outlined on the observation sheets and does not duplicate the observation sheets.
Identification of possible breaches of legislation and standards (5 marks)
Candidates should be able to identify legislation eg Manual Handling Operations Regulations, standards and conventions listed in the syllabus that may have been infringed eg Guidelines on Occupational Safety and Health Management Systems (ILO-OSH) 2001. Credit will also be given for reference to appropriate local standards.
Candidates must ensure that any legislation, standards or convention referred to is relevant to the area/location inspected and hazards outlined and must demonstrate a clear understanding of the reasons for the breaches. Candidates should identify a minimum of five breaches.
Persuasiveness / conciseness / technical content (10 marks)
The candidate must explain why management need to take action including clear legal, moral and financial arguments. Issues requiring urgent action by management with associated explanations containing convincing arguments why such action is needed should be included. Reference can be made to the list of observations and recommended actions, calling particular attention to any recommendations which could have a high cost in terms of finance, inconvenience or time.
Financial benefits, such as increased productivity, may also accrue from making appropriate changes to safety systems. The possible costs of not taking action should be included.

Report – Conclusions and Recommendations

Clear and concise conclusions which are clearly related to report findings and are effective in convincing management to take action (15 marks)
This section should provide a concise summary of the findings identified in the main body of the candidate’s report to persuade management to take action. The conclusions should not introduce new issues or additional factors.
Recommendations which present realistic actions to improve health and safety in the chosen area (15 marks)
Candidates must include recommendations based upon their conclusions. Recommendations must be presented using the recommendations table included at Appendix 5. The recommendations must be realistic, appropriately prioritised and have appropriate resource implications. Candidates are not expected either to know or to estimate actual costs but should demonstrate that they are aware of cost implications. For example, candidates recommending the complete resurfacing of a site roadway because of a small pothole, without commenting on its overall condition, will receive low marks. If training is recommended as a solution to a problem, candidates should indicate if this is likely to require a few hours of work-based instruction or several days of more costly off-the-job training. It is the assessment of magnitude of the cost that is important, rather than precise figures, eg candidates may refer to the number of worker hours as a measure of cost.
Recommendations must be prioritised. The most pressing issues, those which present the highest risk levels and those that can be done immediately at little or no cost, should be addressed first. Target date should be included, for example, ‘plus one week’ or ‘plus three months’.
If none of the criteria to award marks is met, then zero marks will be awarded.

COMMAND WORDS FOR NEBOSH IGC – EXAM TIPS

Command word & Definition

Identify – To give reference to an item, which could be its name or title.

NB: normally a word or phrase will be sufficient, provided the reference is clear.

Give – To provide short, factual answers.

NB: normally a single word, phrase or sentence will be sufficient.

Outline – To indicate the principal features or different parts of.

NB: an exhaustive description is not required. What is sought is a brief summary of the major aspects of whatever is stated in the question.

Describe – To give a detailed written account of the distinctive features of a subject. The account should be factual, without any attempt to explain.

When describing a subject (or object) a test of sufficient detail would be that another person would be able to visualize what you are describing.

Explain – To provide an understanding. To make an idea or relationship clear.

NB: this command word is testing the candidate’s ability to know or understand why or how something happens. Is often associated with the words ‘how’ or ‘why’.

Responding to command words in questions

It is important to read the whole question and to understand what the question requires as the command word on its own will need to be reinforced by the remainder of the question.

Many candidates miss out on gaining marks because they do not read the question carefully enough and do not think about their answer thoroughly before writing it down.

Candidates need to think about each question.

• What is the command word?

• What do I need to say to gain marks?

• What is or is not relevant to the question?

In many cases a brief answer plan is an essential aid to ensuring that answers are well thought out and structured.

NEBOSH applies a ‘positive marking’ approach; that is, marks are awarded for correct material in candidates’ answers, rather than being deducted for incorrect or missing material.

In order to give further direction as to the detail of information required by the command word in a question, examples are given below both for general knowledge and for the NGC1 syllabus.

Again, answers are limited to a brief phrase or in some cases just two words but do give clear reference.

Outline

To gain the marks for the outline example questions below, the same breadth of answer is required as for an identify answer, but now, additional information will be required to satisfy the depth of an outline.

Applying outline to the same non-syllabus subjects:

Sufficient answers would include:

Outline FOUR kitchen appliances.

Toaster

• Accommodates slices of bread, ejects as toast when ready.

Electric kettle

• 1 to 2 litre capacity, boils water. Can be cordless.

Microwave cooker

Heats food rapidly using short wavelength radio waves.

Dishwasher

• Dirty tableware placed in baskets. Mixture of high pressure water and detergent automatically cleans.

Outline FOUR types of bicycle.

Mountain bike

Racing bike

• Lightweight frame with drop handlebars and maybe fixed gearing.

Penny-farthing

• Vintage device with very large front wheel and small rear wheel.

Tandem

• Bicycle designed for two people with two seats and two sets of pedals.

Applying outline to the same syllabus subjects:

Sufficient answers would include:

Outline FOUR hazards associated with excavations.

Collapse of the sides

• Unsupported trench or incorrect angle of the sides.

Water ingress

• Through heavy rain or burst water main.

Falling materials

• Spoil dug from excavation or materials and tools stored at ground level could fall in.

Underground services

• Contact or rupturing of electricity, gas or water utilities.

Outline FOUR mechanical hazards associated with machinery.

Entanglement

• On rotating parts.

Drawing in and trapping

• Between counter rotation rollers, or pulley belts and wheels.

Friction or abrasion

• Contact with fast moving surfaces.

Stabbing or puncture

• From ejected objects or flying objects.

Outline FOUR types of safety sign.

Prohibition signs

• Circular with red border, red diagonal bar and black symbol.

Warning signs

Triangular, yellow background, black border and symbol.

Mandatory signs

• Circular, blue background, white border and white symbol.

Emergency or safe condition signs

• Rectangular, green background, white border and white symbol.

Again, the identify answer (shown in bold) gives the breadth required and the additional information given in the bullet point satisfies the required depth for an outline.

Describe

Applying describe to the non-syllabus subjects:

Sufficient answers would be:

Describe a microwave cooker.

An oblong box shaped object, approximately 30cm tall, 30cm deep and 60cm long. There is a single hinged door at the front, typically see through. The door opens outwards and inside there is a space to place a plate or dish and a microwave transmitter is located above. Outside, on the front there will be normally two controls to set the power and cooking time.

Describe a penny-farthing bicycle.

A manually propelled vintage bicycle consisting of a very large wheel at the front and a much smaller wheel at the back. The wheels are connected by a frame that supports a seat above the front wheel and handlebars to steer. Pedals are connected directly to the centre of the front wheel.

Applying describe to a syllabus subject:

Describe the mechanical hazards associated with abench grinder.

An entanglement hazard would be associated with the rotating spindle that the abrasive wheel is mounted on. Drawing in and trapping is associated with the gap between the tool rest and the rotating abrasive wheel. Friction or abrasion hazards would be associated with the surface of the rotating abrasive wheel and stabbing or puncture hazards could be created by flying fragments or pieces of ejected broken wheel.

In all of the describe answers above, no attempt is made to explain how a microwave cooker heats food, why the front wheel of a penny-farthing is so much larger than the rear wheel or how a person could be injured using an abrasive wheel.

Explain

Applying explain to a non-syllabus subject:

Sufficient answers would include:

Explain how a microwave cooker heats up food.

The frequency of microwaves used in a microwave cooker is sufficient to cause water molecules in food to vibrate. Vibrating molecules hit other water molecules and put them into the same vibration and therefore this vibration of molecules is converted into heat.

Explain why there is a very large front wheel on a penny-farthing.

By having a large front wheel, the peripheral (rim speed) of the wheel is much faster than the rotation of the pedals at the centre. This results in faster forward speed per pedal rotation. Also a larger wheel is more suitable for riding on cobbled streets or rough ground.

Applying explain to a syllabus subject:

Explain how sensitive protective equipment (trip device) can reduce the risk of contact with moving parts of machinery.

Sensitive protective equipment is designed to identify the presence of a person or body part within the danger zone of machinery. Examples of such devices include pressure mats and light beams that are connected to the machine controls and would stop the machine rapidly should a person or body part be detected.

Give

Applying give to a non-syllabus subject:

Identify FOUR European cities AND give an example of a tourist attraction in EACH.

London – eg Buckingham Palace

Paris – eg Eiffel Tower

Pisa – eg Leaning Tower

Rome – eg Colosseum

Applying give to a syllabus subject:

Identify FOUR types of safety sign AND give an examplein EACH case.

Prohibition signs – eg No smoking

VIOLENCE @ WORKPLACE

What is workplace violence?

Workplace violence is violence or the threat of violence against workers.

It can occur at or outside the workplace and can range from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and homicide, one of the leading causes of job-related deaths. However it manifests itself, workplace violence is a growing concern for employers and employees nationwide.

Who is vulnerable?

2 million workers are victims of workplace violence each year. Workplace violence can strike anywhere, and no one is immune. Some workers, however, are at increased risk. Among them are workers who exchange money with the public; deliver passengers, goods, or services; or work alone or in small groups, during late night or early morning hours, in high-crime areas, or in community settings and homes where they have extensive contact with the public.

This group includes health-care and social service workers such as visiting nurses, psychiatric evaluators, and probation officers; community workers such as gas and water utility employees, phone and cable TV installers, and letter carriers; retail workers; and taxi drivers.

What can these employers do to help protect these employees?

The best protection employers can offer is to establish a zero-tolerance policy toward workplace violence against or by their employees. The employer should establish a workplace violence prevention program or incorporate the information into an existing accident prevention program, employee handbook, or manual of standard operating procedures. It is critical to ensure that all employees know the policy and understand that all claims of workplace violence will be investigated and remedied promptly.

In addition, employers can offer additional protections such as the following:

 Provide safety education for employees so they know what conduct is not acceptable,what to do if they witness or are subjected to workplace violence, and how to protect themselves.

 Secure the workplace. Where appropriate to the business, install video surveillance, extra lighting, and alarm systems and minimize access by outsiders through identification badges, electronic keys, and guards.

 Provide drop safes to limit the amount of cash on hand. Keep a minimal amount of cash in registers during evenings and latenight hours.

 Equip field staff with cellular phones and hand-held alarms or noise devices, and require them to prepare a daily work plan and keep a contact person informed of their location throughout the day. Keep employer provided vehicles properly maintained.

 Instruct employees not to enter any location where they feel unsafe. Introduce a “buddy system” or provide an escort service or police assistance in potentially dangerous situations or at night.

 Develop policies and procedures covering visits by home health-care providers. Address the conduct of home visits, the presence of others in the home during visits, and the worker’s right to refuse to provide services in a clearly hazardous situation.

How can the employees protect themselves?

Nothing can guarantee that an employee will not become a victim of workplace violence. These steps, however, can help reduce the odds:

 Learn how to recognize, avoid, or diffuse potentially violent situations by attending personal safety training programs.

 Alert supervisors to any concerns about safety or security and report all incidents immediately in writing.

 Avoid traveling alone into unfamiliar locations or situations whenever possible.

 Carry only minimal money and required identification into community settings.

What should employers do following an incident of workplace violence?

 Encourage employees to report and log all incidents and threats of workplace violence.

 Provide prompt medical evaluation and treatment after the incident.

 Report violent incidents to the local police promptly.

 Inform victims of their legal right to prosecute perpetrators.

 Discuss the circumstances of the incident with staff members. Encourage employees to share information about ways to avoid similar situations in the future.

 Offer stress debriefing sessions and post traumatic counseling services to help workers recover from a violent incident.

 Investigate all violent incidents and threats, monitor trends in violent incidents by type or circumstance, and institute corrective actions.

 Discuss changes in the program during regular employee meetings.

SILICA

Silica

Silica, often referred to as quartz, is a very common mineral. It is found in many materials common on construction sites, including soil, sand, concrete, masonry, rock, granite, and landscaping materials.

The dust created by cutting, grinding, drilling or otherwise disturbing these materials can contain crystalline silica particles.

These dust particles are very small. You cannot see them. This reparable silica dust causes lung disease and lung cancer. It only takes a very small amount of airborne silica dust to create a health hazard.

HAZARDS OF SILICA DUST

Crystalline silica is a common mineral in the earth’s crust, and is found in many types of rock including sand, quartz, and granite. Silica is present in both work and non-work environments, and exposure to crystalline silica dust has long been known to cause a disease called silicosis. When you inhale crystalline silica the lung tissue reacts by developing fibrous tissue around trapped silica particles. This condition of the lung is called silicosis.

Due to the extensive use of concrete and masonry products in buildings today, construction workers have a potential exposure to crystalline silica. Operations such as dumping of rock, jack hammering, abrasive blasting, sawing, drilling or demolition of concrete and masonry structures are some of the activities that could produce this exposure.

Silica sand or other substances containing more than 1% crystalline silica should never be used as abrasive blasting materials. Where silica exceeds 1% of the content, less hazardous materials should be substituted. In addition, always follow safe work practices when there is possible exposure to silica dust.

What are the symptoms of silicosis?

Silicosis is classified into three types: chronic/classic, accelerated, and acute. Chronic/classic silicosis, the most common, occurs after 15–20 years of moderate to low exposures to repairable crystalline silica.

Symptoms associated with chronic silicosis may or may not be obvious; therefore, workers need to have a chest x-ray to determine if there is lung damage. As the disease progresses, the worker may experience shortness of breath upon exercising and have clinical signs of poor oxygen/carbon dioxide exchange. In the later stages, the worker may experience fatigue, extreme shortness of breath, chest pain, or respiratory failure. Accelerated silicosis can occur after 5–10 years of high exposures to reparable crystalline silica. Symptoms include severe shortness of breath, weakness, and weight loss. The onset of symptoms takes longer than in acute silicosis.

Acute silicosis occurs after a few months or as long as 2 years following exposures to extremely high concentrations of repairable crystalline silica. Symptoms of acute silicosis include severe disabling shortness of breath, weakness, and weight loss, which often leads to death.

Where are general industry employees exposed to crystalline silica dust?

The most severe exposures to crystalline silica result from abrasive blasting, which is done to clean and smooth irregularities from molds, jewelry, and foundry castings, finish tombstones, etch or frost glass, or remove paint, oils, rust, or dirt form objects needing to be repainted or treated. Other exposures to silica dust occur in cement and brick manufacturing, asphalt pavement manufacturing, china and ceramic manufacturing and the tool and die, steel and foundry industries.

Crystalline silica is used in manufacturing, household abrasives, adhesives, paints, soaps, and glass. Additionally, crystalline silica exposures occur in the maintenance, repair and replacement of refractory brick furnace linings. In the maritime industry, shipyard employees are exposed to silica primarily in abrasive blasting operations to remove paint and clean and prepare steel hulls, bulkheads, decks, and tanks for paints and coatings.

What can employers/employees do to protect against exposures to crystalline silica?

■ Replace crystalline silica materials with safer substitutes, whenever possible.

■ Provide engineering or administrative controls, where feasible, such as local exhaust ventilation, and blasting cabinets. Where necessary to reduce exposures below the PEL, use protective equipment or other protective measures.

■ Use all available work practices to control dust exposures, such as water sprays.

■ Wear only a N95 NIOSH certified respirator, if respirator protection is required. Do not alter the respirator. Do not wear a tight-fitting respirator with a beard or mustache that prevents a good seal between the respirator and the face.

■ Wear only a Type CE abrasive-blast supplied-air respirator for abrasive blasting.

■ Wear disposable or washable work clothes and shower if facilities are available. Vacuum the dust from your clothes or change into clean clothing before leaving the work site.

■ Participate in training, exposure monitoring, and health screening and surveillance programs to monitor any adverse health effects caused by crystalline silica exposures.

■ Be aware of the operations and job tasks creating crystalline silica exposures in your workplace environment and know how to protect yourself.

■ Be aware of the health hazards related to exposures to crystalline silica. Smoking adds to the lung damage caused by silica exposures.

■ Do not eat, drink, smoke, or apply cosmetics in areas where crystalline silica dust is present. Wash your hands and face outside of dusty areas before performing any of these activities.

■ Remember: If it’s silica, it’s not just dust.

Safety Glasses Work

Safety Glasses Work

Eye injuries are 100 percent preventable.

Your eyes are very delicate, made of thin tissues that can’t take much damage. You can’t blink fast enough to prevent an injury. Significant surgeries are required when serious damage occurs. Shavings, grindings and other particles can fly at high velocities into the eye.

1. Safety glasses are a barrier between your eyes and flying objects.

2. If there is ANY CHANCE of a flying object, wear protective eyewear.

3. Use ANSI-approved safety glasses.

4. Wear eye protection when grinding, buffing, cutting, sawing, chipping and using chemicals.

5. Bad eye injuries will require significant surgery, and at least some loss of vision will most likely result.

Atmospheric Testing in Confined Space

Atmospheric Testing in Confined Space

Atmospheric testing is required for two distinct purposes: evaluation of the hazards of the permit space and verification that acceptable conditions exist for entry into that space.

A confined space is one that is large enough to enter and perform assigned work in; it has limited or restricted ways to enter or exit the space; and it was not designed to be occupied continuously by a worker.

Evaluation testing

The atmosphere within a confined space must be tested using equipment that is designed to detect the chemicals that may be present at levels that are well below the defined exposure limits. Evaluation testing is done to:

• determine what chemical hazards are or may become present in the space’s atmosphere, and

• identify what steps must be followed and what conditions must be met to ensure that atmospheric conditions are safe for a worker to enter the space.

The testing results and the decisions about what steps must be followed before entry must be evaluated by, or reviewed by, a technically qualified professional

The technically qualified professional must consider all of the serious hazards in his/her evaluation or review.

A permit space is a confined space that has one or more of the following features: it has or may contain a hazardous atmosphere; it contains a material that can engulf a person who enters; it has an inside design that could trap or asphyxiate a person who enters (inwardly converging walls, or a floor that slopes downward to a smaller section); or it has any other serious safety or health hazards.

Verification Testing

Before a permit space that may have a hazardous atmosphere can be entered, the atmosphere must be tested using the steps identified on the permit (developed during evaluation testing).

Verification testing is done to make sure that the chemical hazards that may be present are below the levels necessary for safe entry, and that they meet the conditions identified on the permit. Test the atmosphere in the following order: (1) for oxygen, (2) for combustible gases, and then (3) for toxic gases and vapors.2 The testing results — the actual test concentrations — must be recorded on the permit near the levels identified for safe entry.

Duration of Testing

For each test required on the permit, you must allow enough time for the air from the space to be drawn into the equipment and for the sensor (or other detection device) to react to the chemical if it is present. This is considered the “minimum response time” and it will be noted by the manufacturer in the operator’s manual.

Be aware that you will need to add time to this “minimum response time” if you have attached hosing or a probe extension to the inlet. The additional time is needed to allow the air from the different depths of the space to be pulled into the equipment inlet.

Testing Conditions in Spaces that May Have Layered Atmospheres

For permit spaces that are deep or have areas leading away from the entry point, the atmosphere may be layered or may be different in remote areas. For these spaces, testing must be done in the area surrounding the worker, which is considered four (4) feet in the direction of travel and to each side. If a sample probe is used to do the testing,then the worker must move slowly enough so that testing is completed, keeping the equipment “response time” in mind, before he/she moves into the new area.

Retesting the Space During Entry or Before Re-Entry

Test the permit space routinely to make sure that the atmospheric conditions continue to be safe for entry.
