1 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 1 of 17 PURPOSE The purpose of this program is to protect our employees by ensuring that Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is provided, used and maintained in a sanitary and reliable condition whenever it is necessary due to hazards from processes or in the work environment. To the extent that it is possible and feasible, SUNY Geneseo will remove or eliminate hazards or exposures through engineering means to eliminate the need for PPE. This program covers eye and face protection, head protection, foot protection and hand protection. Respiratory, hearing and electrical protection is covered by other programs, but they will also be included in the Hazard Assessment described below. This program covers the responsibilities of directors, supervisors and workers, assessment of hazards, selection and use of PPE and training. I. RESPONSIBILITIES Directors/Supervisors will be responsible for assessing the hazards and exposures that may require the use of PPE, determining the type of equipment to be provided and purchasing the equipment. Should the Directors or Supervisors have questions regarding the hazard assessment or PPE needed, they should contact EHS. Input from employees will be obtained and considered in selecting the appropriate equipment. Directors/Supervisors will be responsible for training employees in the use and proper care of PPE, ensuring that all employees are assigned appropriate PPE and ensuring that PPE is worn by employees when and where it is required. EHS is responsible for generalized training of PPE and Supervisors for specific training if needed. Employees are responsible for following all provisions of this program and related procedures. They are expected to wear PPE when and where it is required. II. HAZARD ASSESSMENT EHS along with Directors/Supervisors will perform hazard assessments of the workplace to determine if hazards are present, or likely to be present, which necessitates the use of PPE. This assessment will consist of a survey of the workplace to identify sources of hazards to workers. Consideration will be given to hazards such as impact, penetration, laceration, compression, chemical exposures, harmful dust, heat, light (optical) radiation, electrical hazards, noise, respiratory hazards, etc. Where such hazards are present, or likely to be present, we will:
2 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 2 of 17 Select and have each affected employee use the type(s) of PPE that will protect the employee from hazards identified in the hazard assessment. Communicate equipment selection decisions to each affected employee. Select PPE that properly fits each affected employee. Train employees in the use and care of PPE as described elsewhere in this program. EHS and Supervisors will verify that the required workplace assessment has been performed by completing a written certification which is dated and signed by the person(s) performing the assessment. Whenever there is a change in process or in the workplace that might introduce or change an exposure or hazard, another assessment will be performed to determine if there needs to be additional PPE or a change in the PPE provided. These supplemental hazard assessments will also be documented, signed and dated by the person performing the assessment. III. SELECTION OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) All PPE clothing and equipment should be of safe design and construction, and should be maintained in a clean and reliable fashion. The fit and comfort of PPE will be taken into consideration when selecting PPE. If several different types of PPE are worn together, they must be compatible. PESH/OSHA requires that many categories of PPE meet or be equivalent to standards developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). PPE for eye and face protection, head protection and foot protection must meet the ANSI standard in effect at the time of its manufacture or provide protection equivalent to PPE manufactured to the ANSI criteria. For hand protection, there is no ANSI standard for gloves but OSHA recommends that selection be based upon the tasks to be performed and the performance and construction characteristics of the glove material. For protection against chemicals, glove selection must be based on the chemicals encountered, the chemical resistance and the physical properties of the glove material. IV. TRAINING Each employee who must wear PPE must be trained to know at least the following: When PPE is necessary What PPE is necessary How to properly put on, adjust, wear and take off PPE The limitations of PPE Proper care, maintenance, useful life and disposal of PPE
3 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 3 of 17 Each employee must demonstrate an understanding of the PPE training as well as the ability to properly wear and use PPE before they are allowed to perform work requiring the use of PPE. If a supervisor believes that a previously trained employee is not demonstrating the proper understanding and skill level in the use of PPE, that employee should receive retraining. Other situations that require additional or retraining include; changes in the workplace or in the type of required PPE that make prior training obsolete. The training of each employee required to wear or use PPE must be documented and contain the name of each employee, the date of the training and a clear identification of the subject of the training. V. EYE AND FACE PROTECTION OSHA/PESH requires employers to ensure that employees have appropriate eye and face protection if they are exposed to eye or face hazards from flying particles, molten metal, liquid chemicals, acids, or caustic liquids, chemical gases or vapors, potentially infected material or potentially harmful radiation. Many occupational eye injuries occur because workers are not wearing any eye protection. Employers must be sure that employees wear appropriate eye and face protection and that the selected form of protection is appropriate to the work being performed and properly fits. Prescription Lenses Regular prescription corrective lenses will not provide adequate protection against most occupational eye and face hazards, so employers must make sure that employees with corrective lenses either wear eye protection that incorporates the prescription into the design or wear additional eye protection over their prescription lenses. It is important to ensure that the protective eyewear does not disturb the proper positioning of the prescription lenses so that the employee s vision will not be inhibited or limited. Also, employees who wear contact lenses must wear eye or face PPE when working in hazardous conditions. Eye Protection for Exposed Workers OSHA/PESH suggests that eye protection be routinely considered for use by carpenters, electricians, machinists, mechanics, plumbers and pipefitters, sheet metal workers and tinsmiths, sanders, grinding machine operators, grounds workers, welders, and laborers. Workers in other job categories should decide whether there is a need for eye and face PPE through a hazard assessment.
4 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 4 of 17 Some examples of potential eye or face injuries include: Dust, dirt, metal or wood chips entering the eye from activities such as chipping, grinding, sawing, hammering, the use of power tools or even strong wind forces. Chemical splashes from corrosive substances, hot liquids, solvents, or other hazardous solutions. Objects swinging into the eye or face, such as tree limbs, chains, tools or ropes. Radiant energy from welding, harmful rays from the use of lasers or other radiant light (as well as heat, glare, sparks, splash and flying particles). Types of Eye Protection Selecting the most suitable eye and face protection for employees should take into consideration the following elements: Ability to protect against specific workplace hazards. Should fit properly and be reasonably comfortable to wear. Should provide unrestricted vision and movement. Should be durable and cleanable. Should allow unrestricted functioning of any other required PPE. Must meet the current ANSI Standard for eye and face protection and clearly identify the manufacturer. Some of the most common types of eye and face protection include the following: Safety Glasses. These protective eyeglasses have safety frames constructed of metal or plastic and impact-resistant lenses. Side shields are mandatory and are available on some models. There are several designs available, see example below.
5 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 5 of 17 Goggles. These are tight fitting eye protection that completely cover the eyes, eye sockets and the facial area immediately surrounding the eyes and provide protection from impact, dust and splashes. Some goggles are vented and should not be used while handling certain chemicals (always check manufacturer SDS). Some goggles will fit over corrective lenses. There are several designs available, see example below. Welding shields. The intense light associated with welding operations can cause serious and sometimes permanent eye damage if operators do not wear proper eye protection. The intensity of light or radiant energy produced by welding, cutting or brazing operations varies according to a number of factors including the task producing the light, the electrode size and the arc current. There are tables available to select the proper protection levels. Welding shields are constructed of vulcanized fiber or fiberglass and fitted with a filtered lens, welding shields protect eyes from burns caused by infrared or intense radiant light; they also protect both eyes and face from flying sparks, metal spatter and slag chips produced during welding, brazing, soldering and cutting operations. OSHA requires filter lenses to have a shade number appropriate to protect against the specific hazards of the work being performed in order to protect against harmful light radiation. There are several designs available, see example below. Laser Safety Glasses. Laser light radiation can be extremely dangerous to the unprotected eye and direct or reflected beams can cause permanent eye damage.
6 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 6 of 17 Laser retinal burns can be painless, so it is essential that all personnel in or around laser operations wear appropriate eye protection. Laser goggles should protect for the specific wavelenght of the laser and must be of sufficient optical density for the energy involved. Safety glasses intended for use with laser beams must be laveled with the laser beams must be labeled with the laser wavelength for which they are intended to be used, the optical density of those wavelenghts and the visible light transmission. The type of laser safety glasses an employer chooses will depend upon the equipment and operating conditions in the workplace. There are several designs available, see example below. Face Shields. These transparent sheets of plastic extend from the eyebrows to below the chin and across the entire width of the employee s head. Some are polarized for glare protection. Face shields protect against nuisance dusts and potential splashes or sprays of hazardous liquids but will not provide adequate protection against impact hazards. Face shields must be used in combination with goggles or safety glasses to provide additional protection against impact. There are several designs available, see example below.
7 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 7 of 17 VI. HEAD PROTECTION Employees must wear head protection if any of the following apply: Objects might fall from above and strike them on the head; They might bump their heads against a fixed object, such as exposed pipes or beams; There is a possibility of accidental head contact with electrical hazards. Some examples of occupations in which employees should be required to wear head protection include construction workers, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, and pipefitters, grounds workers, welders, etc. In general, protective helmets or hard hats should do the following: Resist penetration by objects; Absorb the shock of a blow; Water-resistant and slow burning; Have clear instructions explaining proper adjustment and replacement of the suspension and headband. Hard hats must have a hard outer shell and a shock-absorbing lining that incorporates a headband and straps that suspend the shell from 1 to 1 ¼ inches away from the head. This type of design provides shock absorption during an impact and ventilation during normal wear. Protective headwear must meet the current ANSI standard for protective headgear for industrial workers. Types of Hard Hats Hard hats are divided into three industrial classes: Class A Hard Hats- provide impact and penetration resistance along with limited voltage protection (up to 2,200 volts). Class B Hard Hats-provide the highest level of protection against electrical hazards, with high-voltage shock and burn protection (up to 20,000 volts). Class C Hard Hats-provide lightweight comfort and impact protection but offer no protection from electrical hazards.
8 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 8 of 17 Each hard hat should bear a label inside the shell that lists the manufacturer, the ANSI designation and the class of the hat. Another class of protective headgear is called a bump hat/cap, designed for use in areas with low head clearance. They are recommended for areas where protection is needed from head bumps and lacerations. These are not designed to protect against falling or flying objects and are not ANSI approved and are not used at SUNY Geneseo. Size and Care Considerations Head protection that is too large or too small is inappropriate for use, even if it meets all other requirements. Protective headgear must fit appropriately on the body and for the head size of each individual. Most protective headgear comes in a variety of sizes with adjustable headbands to ensure a proper fit. A proper fit should allow sufficient clearance between the shell and the suspension system for ventilation and distribution of an impact. The hat should not bind, slip, fall off or irritate the skin. Some protective headgear allows for the use of various accessories to help employees deal with changing environmental conditions, such as slots for earmuffs, safety glasses, face shields and mounted lights. Protective headgear accessories must not compromise the safety elements of the equipment. Periodic cleaning and inspection will extend the useful life of protective headgear. A daily inspection of the hard hat shell, suspension system and other accessories for holes, cracks, tears or other damage that might compromise the protective value of the hat is essential. Paints, paint thinners and some cleaning products can weaken the shells of hard hats and may eliminate electrical resistance. Never drill holes, paint or apply labels to protective headgear as this may reduce the integrity of the protection or hide damage. Headgear should not be stored in direct sunlight as sunlight and extreme heat cause damage.
9 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 9 of 17 Hard hats showing any of the following defects should be removed from service and replaced: Perforation, cracking, or deformity of the brim or shell; Indication of exposure of the brim or shell to heat, chemicals, or ultraviolet light and other radiation (in addition to a loss of surface gloss, such signs include chalking or flaking). Always replace a hard hat if it sustains an impact, even if damage is not noticeable. Suspension systems are offered as replacement parts and should be replaced when damaged or when excessive wear is noticed. It is not necessary to replace the entire hard hat when deterioration or tears of the suspension system are noticed as long as the hard hat is in good condition and not expired. NOTE: Hard hats have expiration (typically shown on the underside of the hat) and should be replaced when the expiration date is up. VII. FOOT AND LEG PROTECTION Protective footwear should be worn by employees who face possible foot or leg injuries from falling or rolling objects or from crushing or penetrating materials. Also, employees whose work involves exposure to hot substances or corrosive or poisonous materials must have protective gear to cover exposed body parts, including legs and feet. If an employee s feet may be exposed to electrical hazards, non-conductive footwear should be worn. Examples of situations in which an employee must wear foot and/or leg protection: When heavy objects such as barrels or tools might roll onto or fall on the employee s feet. Working with sharp objects such as nails or spikes that could pierce the soles or uppers of ordinary shoes. Exposure to molten metal that might splash on feet or legs. Working on or around hot, wet or slippery surfaces. Working when electrical hazards are present. Safety footwear must meet ANSI minimum compression and impact performance standards for Personal Protective Footwear. All ANSI approved footwear has a protective toe and offers impact and compression protection. But the type and amount of protection is not always the same. Different footwear protects in different ways. Check the products
10 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 10 of 17 labeling or consult the manufacturer to make sure the footwear will protect the user from the hazards they face. Foot and leg protection choices include the following: Leggings protect the lower legs and feet from heat hazards such as molten metal or welding sparks. Safety snaps allow leggings to be removed quickly. Metatarsal guards protect the instep area from impact and compression. Made of aluminum, steel, fiber or plastic, these guards may be strapped to the outside of shoes, or metatarsal boots have the guard incorporated in the boot. Toe guards fit over the toes of regular shoes to protect the toes from impact and compression hazards. They may be made of steel, aluminum or plastic. Combination foot and shin guards protect the lower legs and feet, and may be used in combination with toe guards when greater protection is needed.
11 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 11 of 17 Safety Shoes have impact resistant toes and heat resistant soles that protect the feet against hot work surfaces common in roofing, paving and hot metal industries. The metal insoles of some safety shoes protect against puncture wounds. Safety shoes may also be designed to be electrically conductive to prevent the buildup of static electricity in areas with the potential for explosive atmospheres or nonconductive to protect workers for workplace electrical hazards. Special Purpose Shoes Electrical hazard, safety-toe shoes are not conductive and will prevent the user s feet from completing an electrical circuit to the ground. These shoes can protect against open circuits of up to 600 volts in dry conditions and should be used in conjunction with other insulating equipment and additional precautions to reduce the risk of a worker becoming a path for hazardous electrical energy. The insulating protection of electrical hazard, safety-toe shoes may be compromised if the shoes become wet, the soles are worn through, metal particles become embedded in the sole or heel, or workers touch conductive, grounded items. Note: nonconductive footwear must not be used in explosive or hazardous locations. Care of Protective Footwear As with all protective equipment, safety footwear should be inspected prior to each use. Shoes and leggings should be checked for wear and tear at reasonable intervals. This includes looking for cracks or holes, separation of materials, broken buckles or laces. The soles of shoes should be checked for pieces of metal or other embedded items that could
12 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 12 of 17 present electrical or tripping hazards. Employees should follow the manufacturer s recommendations for cleaning and maintenance of protective footwear. VIII. HAND AND ARM PROTECTION If a workplace hazard assessment reveals that employees face potential injury to hands that cannot be eliminated through engineering and work practice controls, employers must ensure that employees wear appropriate protection. Potential hazards include skin absorption of harmful substances, chemical or thermal burns, electrical dangers, bruises, abrasions, punctures, fractures and amputations. Protective equipment includes gloves, finger guards and arm coverings or elbow-length gloves. Employers should explore all possible engineering and work practice controls to eliminate hazards and use PPE to provide additional protection against hazards that cannot be completely eliminated through other means. For example, machine guards may eliminate a hazard. Installing a barrier to prevent workers from placing their hands at the point of contact between a table saw and the item being cut is another method. Type of Protective Gloves There are many types of gloves available today to protect against a wide variety of hazards. The nature of the hazard and the operation involved will affect the selection of gloves. It is essential that employees use gloves specifically designed for the hazards and tasks found in their workplace. The following are examples of some factors that may influence the selection of protective gloves for a workplace: Type of chemicals handled; Nature of contact (total immersion, splash, etc.); Duration of contact; Area requiring protection (hand only, forearm, arm); Grip requirements (dry, wet, oily); Thermal protection; Size and comfort; Abrasion/resistance requirements. Gloves made from a wide variety of materials are designed for many types of workplace hazards. In general, gloves fall into four groups: Gloves made of leather, canvas or metal mesh.
13 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 13 of 17 Fabric and coated fabric gloves. Chemical and liquid resistant gloves. Insulating rubber gloves (section 29 CFR has detailed requirements on the selection and care of insulating rubber gloves). Leather, Canvas or Metal Mesh Gloves Sturdy gloves made from metal mesh, leather or canvas provides protection against cuts and burns. Leather gloves also protect against sustained heat. Leather gloves protect against sparks, moderate heat, blows, chips and rough objects. Aluminized gloves provide reflective and insulating protection against heat and require an insert made of synthetic materials to protect against heat and cold. Aramid fiber gloves protect against heat and cold, are cut and abrasive resistant and wear well. Synthetic gloves of various materials offer protection against heat and cold are cut resistant and may withstand some diluted acid. These materials do not stand up against alkalis and solvents. Fabric and Coated Fabric Gloves Fabric and coated fabric gloves are made of cotton or other fabric to provide varying degrees of protection. Fabric gloves protect against dirt, slivers, chaffing and abrasions. They do not provide sufficient protection for use with rough, sharp or heavy materials. Adding a plastic coating will strengthen some fabric gloves. Coated fabric gloves are normally made form cotton flannel with napping on one side. By coating the unnapped side with plastic, fabric gloves are transformed into general purpose hand protection offering slip resistant qualities. These gloves are used for tasks ranging from handling bricks and wire to chemical laboratory containers. When selecting gloves to protect against chemical exposure hazards, always check with the manufacturer or review the manufacturer s product literature to determine the gloves effectiveness against specific workplace chemicals and conditions. Chemical and Liquid Resistant Gloves Chemical resistant gloves are made with different kinds of rubber: natural, butyl, neoprene, nitrile and fluorocarbons; or various other kinds of plastic: polyvinyl chloride,
14 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 14 of 17 polyvinyl alcohol and polyethylene. These materials can be blended or laminated for better performance. As a general rule, the thicker the glove material, the greater the chemical resistance but thick gloves may impair grip and dexterity. Some examples of chemical resistant gloves include: Butyl gloves are made of synthetic rubber and protect against a wide variety of chemicals, such as peroxide, rocket fuels, highly corrosive acids (nitric acid, sulfuric acid, hydrofluoric acid and red-fuming nitric acid), strong bases, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, esters and nitro compounds. Butyl gloves also resist oxidation, ozone corrosion and abrasion, and remain flexible at low temperatures. Butyl rubber does not perform well with aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons or halogenated solvents. Natural (latex) rubber gloves are comfortable to wear, which makes them a popular general purpose glove. They feature outstanding tensile strength, elasticity and temperature resistance. In addition to resisting abrasions caused by grinding and polishing, these gloves protect workers hands from most water solutions of acids, alkalis, salts and ketones. Latex gloves may not be appropriate for some solvents. Latex gloves have caused allergic reactions in some individuals and may not be appropriate for all employees. Hypoallergenic gloves, glove liner and powderless gloves are possible alternatives for workers who are allergic to latex gloves. Neoprene gloves are made of synthetic rubber and offer good pliability, finger dexterity and tear resistance. They protect against hydraulic fluids, gasoline, alcohols, organic acids and alkalis. They generally have chemical and wear resistance properties superior to those made of natural rubber. Nitrile gloves are made of a copolymer and provide protection from chlorinated solvents such as trichloroethylene and perchloroethylene. Although intended for jobs requiring dexterity and sensitivity, nitrile gloves stand up to heavy use even after prolonged exposure to substances that cause other gloves to deteriorate. They offer protection when working with oils, greases, acids, caustics and alcohols but are generally not recommended for use with strong oxidizing agents, aromatic solvents, ketones and acetates. NOTE: Glove manufacturers have chemical compatibility and selection guides available for specific use. Care of Protective Gloves Protective gloves should be inspected before each use to ensure that they are not torn, punctured or made ineffective in any way. A visual inspection will help detect cuts or tears. Gloves that are discolored or stiff may also indicate deficiencies caused by excessive use or degradation from chemical exposure.
15 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 15 of 17 Any gloves with impaired protective ability should be discarded and replaced. Reuse of chemical resistant gloves should be evaluated carefully, taking into consideration the absorptive qualities of the gloves. A decision to reuse chemically exposed gloves should take into consideration the toxicity of the chemicals involved and factors such as duration of exposure, storage and temperature. Disposable or one time use gloves should be discarded after one use. IX. BODY PROTECTION Employees who face possible bodily injury of any kind which cannot be eliminated through engineering, work practice or administrative controls, must wear appropriate body protection while performing their jobs. In addition to cuts and radiation, the following are examples of workplace hazards that could cause bodily injury: Temperature extremes; Hot splashes from molten metals and other hot liquids; Potential impacts from tools, machinery and materials; Hazardous chemicals; Electricity (covered under different program). There are many varieties of protective clothing available for specific hazards. Employers are required to ensure that their employees wear personal protective equipment only for the parts of the body exposed to possible injury. Examples of body protection include laboratory coats, coveralls, vests, jackets, aprons, surgical gowns and full body suits. If a hazard assessment indicates a need for full body protection against toxic substances or harmful physical agents, the clothing should be carefully inspected before each use, it must fit each worker properly and it must function properly and for the purpose for which it is intended. Protective clothing comes in a variety of materials, each effective against particular hazards such as: Paper-like fiber used for disposable suits provide protection against dust and splashes. Treated wool and cotton adapts well to changing temperatures, is comfortable and fire resistant and protects against dust, abrasions and rough and irritating surfaces. Duck is a closely woven cotton fabric that protects against cuts and bruises when handling heavy, sharp or rough materials.
16 Prepared by: Darlene Necaster Page 16 of 17 Leather is often used to protect against dry heat and flames. Rubber, rubberized fabrics, neoprene and plastics protect against certain chemicals and physical hazards. When chemical or physical hazards are present, check with the clothing manufacturer to ensure that the material selected will provide protection against the specific hazard. NOTE: Some PPE may need to be disposed of after use. Staff must check with Supervisor prior to disposal. X.
