What Is Safety Equipment For Work?
PPE in a cupboard
PPE must be kept in a clean cupboard when not in use. It must be cleaned and kept in good condition if it is reuseable.
Safety Products and Equipment for Work Sites
Safety supplies and protective equipment help keep work sites secure. Protection from injury or illness is provided by safety gear. Safety signs warn employees and others of potential dangers, alert workers to the location of safety equipment and exit routes, and offer safety-related instructions in a concise and attention-getting format.
Maintenance logs for high-risk work equipment
All work equipment should be maintained in an efficient state, in good repair, and kept up to date, and that maintenance operations on work equipment can be carried out safely. Safety-critical parts of work equipment may need more attention than other parts, which can be seen within a maintenance programme. If significant risk arises from the continued use of the work equipment, breakdown maintenance will not be suitable.
It is not recommended to keep a maintenance log for high-risk equipment. Maintenance logs can provide useful information for future planning and previous actions taken. You must keep a maintenance log up to date.
There are training schemes for some maintenance work. In other cases, the hirers of the equipment may provide sufficient training for the use of small-scale scaffold towers. Basic training in the safe use of the equipment is usually an important part of the training for hand-held chainsaws.
Operators of Heavy Equipment
Operators of heavy equipment such as excavators, loaders, graders, rollers, and bulldozers should always be highly skilled and have the necessary skills to operate safely. Ground-based workers should be trained to stay clear of equipment and to work safely around it. The operator those around the equipment can create dangerous situations by not being safe. If the equipment strikes a worker, serious injuries can occur.
The ILO is Safe to Workcentrify
The ILO wants to create worldwide awareness of the consequences of work-related accidents, injuries and diseases and to place the health and safety of all workers on the international agenda to encourage and support practical action at all levels. It is safe to workcent work.
