6 Agenda What constitutes a hazard? Safe work practices Hierarchy of controls at a glance Putting the hierarchy to work for your business

7 What is a Hazard? Chemical hazards Mislabeled chemicals Improperly stored chemicals Untrained employees handling chemicals

8 What is a Hazard? Biological hazards: Viral/bacterial agents Contact with animals Contact with insects Contact with plants

9 What is a Hazard? Electrical hazards: Missing grounds Faulty wiring Damaged power cords Contact with power lines

10 What is a Hazard? Mechanical hazards Unguarded machinery Unguarded power transmission devices Damaged tools

11 What is a Hazard? Physical hazards: Poor housekeeping Extreme temperatures Noise Ergonomic issues

12 What is the Hierarchy of Controls? A system safety professionals use to rank hazard prevention and control strategies by their effectiveness: Eliminate the hazard Limit employees exposure to the hazard

13 Safe Work Practices Should be your constant expectation Management leads by example Train new employees, current employees who assume new tasks Provide regularly scheduled refresher training Call 844-WORKSAFE ( ) to receive Toolbox Talks via

14 Engineering Controls Most effective control Eliminates the hazard: Remove it Enclose hazard, create barriers o Safety guards on machines Substitute something that is not a hazard o Acrylic-based paint instead of lead-based paint

15 Administrative Controls Second-most effective control Change way work is done Reduce exposure to hazard Rotating employees among tasks New-employee conditioning Requiring breaks

16 Personal Protective Equipment Least-effective control Comes with risk Damaged PPE False sense of security Examples: Hearing protection Hard hats Fall protection

17 Engineering Engineering PPE Administrative

18 Controlling Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVAs) Leading cause of workplace fatalities Common causes: Failure to wear seatbelts Speeding Driver distractions Fatigue Click on the image to visit Texas Mutual s safe-driving website and get free training resources.

19 MVAs: Engineering Controls Anti-lock breaks Interlocking devices Vehicle design Click on the image to find out how Standard Energy used engineering controls to reduce the risk of vehicle rollovers. Autonomous vehicles

20 MVAs: Administrative Controls Journey management Eliminate unnecessary trips Control risk during necessary trips Prohibit cell phone use Defensive driving course

21 MVAs: Personal Protective Equipment Seatbelts, helmets Air bags High-visibility clothing

22 Controlling Falls Second-leading cause of workplace injuries Stand Down for Safety Common causes: Unsafe behavior Poor housekeeping Damaged equipment Failure to use PPE

23 Falls: Engineering Controls Work at ground level when possible Use a lift instead of climbing Enclose open pit with a fence Replace slippery floor wax with one that improves traction

24 Falls: Administrative Controls Train employees to use ladders, scaffolds, lift aids properly Implement a buddy system Follow OSHA standards General industry Construction industry

25 Falls: Personal Protective Equipment Slip-resistant shoes Slip-resistant floor mats Fall protection equipment Personal fall arrest system Safety nets Guardrails

26 Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) Account for 70M doctor visits Older workers vulnerable Common causes: Repetitive motions Lifting heavy loads Awkward postures Bending, twisting

27 MSDs: Engineering Controls Adjustable workstations Mechanical/powered lift assists Conveyors Carts

28 MSDs: Administrative Controls Eliminate unnecessary lifting Teach proper lifting techniques Rotate employees among tasks Provide rest/recovery time Decrease production rates Implement a wellness program

29 MSDs: Personal Protective Equipment Vibration-reducing gloves Knee pads Elbow pads Anti-fatigue mats

30 Controlling Heat-Related Illness Heat exhaustion, stroke, cramps, rash Heavy clothing multiplies effects Heat index is the true measure Use OSHA s heat safety app

31 Heat-Related Illness: Engineering Controls Install air conditioning, fans Increase ventilation Insulate hot surfaces Install reflective shields

32 Heat-Related Illness: Administrative Controls Promote water, rest, shade Allow workers to acclimatize Schedule heavy work for cooler times of day Teach workers to recognize signs of heatrelated illness

33 Heat-Related Illness: PPE Broad-brimmed hats with neck flaps Light-colored, breathable clothing Safety glasses with tinted, polarized lenses SPF sun block
