2 Contents of the lecture Safety and Health Protection at Work Personal Protective Equipment PPE Legislation

3 Safety and Health Protection at Work Secondary school and university students: - Theoretical knowledge of woodworking - Obtaining practical skills WATCH OUT! We are working, that is operating! We are threatened by danger of bodily injury!

4 Safety and Health Protection at Work I am employed and I work: in woodworking operation at the workplace within working hours I perform activities during which I have to pay an increased attention

5 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) § 6, part. 3 of Safety and Health Protection at Work Law 124/2006 Coll. An employer is obliged free of charge to provide employees with working clothing and working boots, if they work in an environment in which clothing or boots are subject to extreme wearing out or extreme dirting according to the special regulation – the Slovak Government directive 387/2006 Coll. BEWARE! In woodworking industry there is an environment in which clothing and boots are subject to extreme wearing out or dirting

7 Requirements for PPE PPE has to ensure effective protection against existing and also foreseeable danger, to correspond to existing and foreseeable working conditions and working environment at the workplace, to meet ergonomic requirements, to comply with employee's health condition, to be suitable for use. PPE must not increase risk and danger at workplace


9 PPE FOR HEAD PROTECTION Safety helmets, e.g. against hit, bump, molten iron, dielectric, for use in mining, engineering industry, metallurgy, forestry, energetics, building industry, fire-fighting operations, rescue operations at breakdowns and natural catastrophes. Protective head covers, caps with a shield and without it, reinforced caps against hits, berets, scarves, hairnets, hoods, hats with the part to protect the neck, made of textile, netting, impregnated, those ones against scalping and other similar danger.

13 PPE FOR UPPER EXTREMITIES PROTECTION Safety gloves – gauntlets (mittens, three-finger or five-finger gloves) for work with machine equipment, with hand tools and instruments, for handling with materials against stabbing, cutting, sliding, vibrations, for protection against chemical substances and biological materials, against electric current and voltage, against emitting heat, cold, against ionising radiation. Safety fingers for finger protection. Safety sleeves for arm protection. Wrist straps for wrist protection. Palm-covers for palm protection. Forearm protectives from the ring netting.
