2 Training ProgramAt the end of this training you will be required to complete an on-line quiz.Please review the information in this program until you feel comfortable with it.You will also be provided with a Hazard Certification for your job title. Your supervisor will review this with you and you will both sign off on it.
4 OHSA Requirements PPE must be provided for you. You must wear the appropriate PPE.PPE must be stored in a sanitary and reliable condition.This includes PPE forEye, Face, Head, and ExtremitiesProtective ClothingRespiratory DevicesProtective Shield and Barriers
5 Definition of PPEPPE stands for Personal Protective Equipment. Items such as gloves and ear plugs are PPE. This is the equipment that protects you against hazards in the workplace.However, it can’t protect you if it isn’t worn correctly or you choose not to wear it.
7 Eye and Face Protection Eye and face protection must be used when exposed to hazards from:Flying particlesLiquid chemicalsAcids or caustic liquidsChemical vapors or gasesWeldingPotentially injurious light radiation (from welding or lasers)
8 Eye and Face Protection Must comply with ANSI Z87 specifications Safety GlassesFull Face ShieldSafety GogglesWelding Helmets
9 Prescription LensesIf you wear prescription glasses and need eye protection, you mustWear prescription safety glasses or goggles --or--Wear eye protection that can be worn over your glasses without disturbing them.
10 Prescription LensesIf you need more information on prescription safety glasses, please contact your supervisor.
11 Select the Eyewear Most Suited to You and the Task There are many types of eyeprotection, to suit the task andthe individual.It should fit comfortably, withoutpinching the nose or causingpressure on the head.Eyewear should not distort orblock your vision.
12 Eye and Face Protection Put on eye protection before exposure to the hazard.Eye and face protection should be kept clean so your vision is not obstructed.Clean the lenses or shields regularly with glass cleaner or soapy water.
14 Head ProtectionHard hats must be worn in areas around or where there is a potential for falling objects.Hard hats must also be worn where there are low-hanging obstructions.Helmets designed to reduce electrical shock hazards must be worn when your head is exposed to electricity (Class A & B).Some tasks require both head & face protection.
15 Head Protection CareInspect your hard hats regularly for any signs of deterioration. You should get a new hard hat at least every two years.Head protection must comply with the ANSI Z89 standard.
17 Foot ProtectionMetatarsal guards must be worn when you are around objects that may fall or roll.Shoes with puncture resistant soles must be worn when there is a danger of objects piercing the sole of your work shoe.
18 Foot ProtectionShoes or boots with electrical protection must be worn when there is a danger of electrical hazards to your feet.Rubber boots or shoes must be worn when you work in or around water or where there is a slip hazard.
19 Foot ProtectionWhen working with hazardous chemicals, make sure you wear the appropriate chemical-resistant foot protection in case of splashing or spilling.This would be impermeable rubber or neoprene boots as shown.
20 Foot ProtectionAll DFCM employees doing maintenance activities must wear steel-toed shoes while at work. Contact your supervisor if you do not have steel-toed shoes.
21 Wear and Care of Foot Protection Inspect before each use.There should be no cracks or holes in chemical or waterproof boots.Should be comfortable.Check soles for excessive wear.Keep clean and dry. Spray off mud, dirt or chemicals after each use to keep the footwear in good condition.Slide Show NotesJust like everyday shoes, work footwear must be comfortable.Inspect your footwear before each use.Chemical-resistant and waterproof footwear should be checked for holes or cracks.Soles, especially slip-resistant or puncture-resistant soles, should be checked daily for excessive wear.Keep your work footwear clean and dry. Spray off mud, dirt, or chemicals after each use to keep the footwear in good condition.
23 Hand ProtectionYou must wear hand protection when you are exposed to any of the following hazards:Skin absorption of hazardous materialsSevere cutsSevere abrasionsPuncturesChemical burnsThermal burns/ harmful temperature extremes
24 GlovesGloves are the most important and common part of hand protection. There are many different types of gloves that protect you from different hazards.If you are working with chemicals, always check the MSDSto know what type ofglove you should wear.
25 Selecting Hand Protection Chemical-resistant glovesKevlar, metal mesh, cut-resistant glovesLeather work glovesExtreme temperature glovesElectrical work glovesSlide Show NotesEnsure that the appropriate chemical-resistant glove will protect against the chemical being used. Gloves can be made of rubber, latex, viton, butyl, nitrile, neoprene, or PVC, and are graded by the manufacturer for degradation, breakthrough time, and permeation rate.Employees working with saws, using knives, or handling glass should wear cut- or puncture-resistant gloves. When working with sharp blades, steel mesh gloves are effective.The most common gloves used to protect hands from cuts and scrapes are typically made of leather or canvas and can also be coated with materials that improve grip.For burn protection, wear gloves made of terry cloth, leather, or pigskin. Welders may need sleeves or other clothing to protect from burns. When exposed to cold conditions, wear gloves with liners. Consider other features such as grip or cut resistance.Electricians need lineman’s gloves designed for different levels of voltage. High-voltage gloves are black rubber with a red interior so any cuts or damage to the outside layer can be easily seen. Liners are also worn under the gloves to absorb perspiration.Bring examples of the different types of hand protection that have been selected for each of the hazards identified in your hazard assessment.
