Objectives: Participants will: Examine facts associated with fall hazards Examine proper materials handing usage and safety Explain back Injury prevention Identify requirements for use of personal protective equipment
Logistics Safety Awareness The fatal injury rate for the logistics industry is higher than the national average for all industries Several potential hazards for workers in the logistics field: Slips, Trips and Falls Materials Handling Back Injury PPE
Fall Hazards Slips trips and falls constitutes the majority of General Industry accidents Moving materials on different levels Different type of floor surfaces Lose your balance or stumble
Fall Hazards Slip Trip Fall occurs when persons foot contacts an object or lower level unexpectedly causing them to be thrown off balance occurs when you are too far off balance occurs when too little friction/traction between the shoe and walking surface
Fall Hazards Slips trips and falls 1910 subpart D - Walking-working surfaces Walking/working surfaces are addressed in specific standards for the general industry, shipyard employment, marine terminals, long shoring, and the construction industry. Good Housekeeping OSHA (29 CFR 1910.22(a))
Material Handling ( 29 CFR 1910.176(b)-(c)) that "Storage of material shall not create a hazard. stack containers and materials so they're stable and secure against sliding or collapse Safe Storage Practices/Stacking Loads
Materials Handling/Back Safety Material handling is the lifting, lowering, moving, pushing pulling carrying equipment, supplies tools etc. from one place to another. Control stressors by: Minimizing the amount of weight handled Use material handling devices Break material into smaller packages Plan ahead
Back Safety Factors to consider Object weight – Of course! Size, shape, contents Frequency Vertical distance of lift How much can you lift? NIOSH – 51 lbs. AGCIH – 70 lbs.
Back Safety A back support belt may be used as long as: A. Approved by supervisor/physician B. Its made out of material that wont chafe C. Its been OSHA certified D. You feel better with it on
Personal Protective Equipment One of the best ways to protect yourself from injury is to wear proper clothing and equipment OSHA requires employers to provide—and employees to use—PPE wherever we identify hazards that could cause "injury or impairment" (29 CFR 1910.132(a))
Personal Protective Equipment Hard Hats Footwear Gloves Safety Glasses/Protective Clothing Hearing Protection
Summary Be aware of your surroundings- slips, trips and falls Good Housekeeping- neat, clean organized, no obstacles or hazards present Material Handling- handling, stacking, storage Back Safety- know limitations, weight, ask for help PPE- first line of defense proper personal protective equipment
