1 Design and Technology Dylunio a Thechnoleg Health and Safety Considerations Ystyriaethau Iechyd a Diogelwch January 2012

2 Croeso/Welcome Welcome to an open discussion regarding safety related to design and technology in schools Croeso i ynglyn a drafodaeth ynghylch diogelwch sy’n berthnasol i dylunio a thechnoleg mewn ysgolion

3 Agenda Applicable Legislation Issues for schools What do schools need to do? Next steps

4 Legislation/Deddfwriaeth Rhaid i ni fynd i’r Saesneg nawr Health and Safety at Work Act-Umbrella legislation Provision and Use of work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) Management of Health and Safety at Work Act (MHSWR) Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (CoSHH) Personal Protective Equipment Regulations (PPE) Workplace Regulations Manual Handling (operations) Regulations (MHO)

9 CoSHH Regulations Main requirements: ◦Risk Assessment ◦Prevention or Control of Exposure ◦Use of Control Measures ◦Maintenance & Testing of Control Measures ◦Monitoring Exposure ◦Health Surveillance ◦Information, instruction & training

10 PUWER Regulations Main Provisions ◦Suitability of Equipment ◦Maintenance ◦Inspection ◦Risk Assessment ◦Information, instruction & training ◦Dangerous parts of machinery ◦Temperature ◦Controls ◦Change control ◦Isolation ◦Stability ◦Lighting

11 Issues for Schools (equipment) Materion ar gyfer Ysgolion (offer) Fume Cupboards Woodworking and machining operations ventilation systems Equipment Guarding Emergency/power down arrangements Maintenance and Testing Risk Assessment

12 What do schools need to do? (1) Beth sydd angen i ysgolion wneud? (1) Training- staff must be competent to not only use the equipment safely but also have sufficient knowledge and experience to train others (Coleg Sir Gar courses) CLEAPSS L79 Age Restrictions – after a risk assessment, pupils below a certain age may not be permitted to use certain equipment, isolation locks for high risk equipment (BS4163)

13 What do schools need to do? (2) Beth sydd angen i ysgolion ei wneud? (2) Class Size – may determine the amount of supervision available (recommended one competent person per 20 pupils (max)) Floor markings – indicate ‘safe’ areas for pupils and staff Housekeeping – unobstructed equipment (safety stops), materials, tools etc. Guarding –adequate in design and maintenance and machine brakes

14 What do schools need to do? (3) Beth sydd angen i ysgolion ei wneud? (3) Ventilation – required to be maintained and with an efficiency test every fourteen months CLEAPSS G225 Maintenance records (bear in mind manufacturers’ recommendations) CLEAPSS L254 Risk Assessments and audits CLEAPSS G79 Personal Protective equipment – supply, suitability, maintenance and replacement

15 Guidance Available Canllawiau sydd ar gael CCC schools guidance documents & Corporate safety team Design and Technology Association CLEAPPS Specifically L235 Managing Risk Assessment in Design and Technology L245 School Science Service Guide BS 4163:2007 Health and safety for design and technology in schools and similar establishments. Code of practice PD 5304:2005 Guidance on safe use of machinery

16 Next Steps Y Camau Nesaf Assess what equipment you have available Risk assess with current control measures Determine what additional controls (if any) are required Record results Implement new controls

17 Diolch i chi am wrando, oes cwestiynau? Thank you for listening, any questions ?
