This month's issue includes information on lockout/tagout (affected employee); inspecting vertical lifelines; protecting yourself from chemical splashes; and loading dock safety (chocking).
Employee News Articles:
When inspecting a vertical lifeline, inspect the hardware, including any snap hooks, ferrules, and thimbles, for damage, breaks, and distortion. Hardware must be free of sharp edges, burrs, cracks, worn parts, and corrosion.
Lockout and tagout devices both prevent access to hazardous energy and warn you to keep away from it. Lockout devices prevent machinery or equipment from being turned on during servicing and maintenance and prevent machine and equipment parts from moving, usually by using locking or blocking devices.
When loading or unloading a truck or trailer, it’s important to prevent injuries and accidents by ensuring the wheels are properly chocked.
Eye exposure to hazardous chemicals can cause permanent blindness, as well as other damage or irritation to the eyes, and eye and face protective devices are critical to preventing this exposure.
