business How and why you should give your n and food manufacturing. Such workplaces a safety check-up, by Susanna Nelso


re your safety procedures up to date? Do they cover every possible contingency? It’s important to stay ahead of safety regulations and standards, and to make sure you’ve thought of everything that can possibly go wrong at your business. You don’t want to be caught short in a safety emergency. “When assessing your site you need to look at it with fresh eyes, as though you were looking at it for the first time,” says Linda Wilcox, Director of Wilcox Safety and Signs. “This is especially important if you have contractors or visitors or younger employees or apprentices as they have much less hands-on experience and often fail to recognise dangers. Over time, simple things like tripping hazards or slippery surfaces that regular staff are aware of get overlooked.” FIRST-AID KITS “The first question to consider is whether your business is a low- or high-risk business,” says a spokesperson at FastAid. A low-risk workplace is one where employees are not exposed to hazards that could result in serious injury or illness—this might include offices, shops or libraries. Low-risk workplaces need one first-aid kit for every 50 workers. At a high-risk workplace, workers are exposed to hazards that could result in serious injury or illness and would require first aid. Sectors in this category include mobile and manufacturing plants, construction, mining, trades, warehousing


need one first-aid kit for every 25 workers. “If you have a smaller number of workers at a separate location—in a different building or on a different level— they must have access to a first-aid kit too,” FastAid’s spokesperson says. “You need to factor in casual workers, volunteers and contractors in your total number of workers when you purchase your first-aid kits.” Work vehicles—from tractors to taxis— are considered a work place and must contain a compliant first-aid kit. The kit must be safely located and secured so as not to become a projectile in the case of an accident. FastAid stocks a compliant first aid kit that contains all required elements and comes in a soft-pack case that may reduce injury should it dislodge in a work vehicle and become a projectile. It also stocks a kit containing a snake and spider bite module for regional areas.

FIRE EXTINGUISHERS Fire extinguishers are required for every commercial premises and every place of work. Again, this includes commercial vehicles—buses, trucks, tradies’ utes, sales representatives’ cars— which are defined as places of work for this purpose. The number of fire extinguishers needed for a commercial building will depend on the number of square metres of building space and its function—hospitals, for example, have highly specific regulations regarding fire extinguishers. “Fire extinguishers must be properly maintained,” says David Smith from Megafire. “Every six months, your fire

extinguisher needs to be serviced to ensure it retains adequate pressure. Every five years it must be replaced or pressure-tested—it is far cheaper to replace a fire extinguisher than to maintain it beyond this point, and that’s what most businesses opt to do. The Australian Standards—AS1851, specifically—govern when additional fireprevention requirements like fire alarm systems and sprinklers, fire hose reels and hydrants must also be considered. Fire blankets are essential for kitchen and other food-handling environments where the toxic powder released by a fire extinguisher could compromise exposed food. “A fire blanket in this situation makes good business sense,” says Smith. HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS All businesses store dangerous chemicals—a can of fly spray contains dangerous chemicals—but what you’re obliged to do about them will depend on what sort of quantities you’re keeping. If you’re storing more than a certain amount of a dangerous chemical, specified by regulation, you must store it in a fire-resistant cabinet. The Australian Standards contain specifications for the design and performance of these cabinets. Of course, HAZCHEM placarding goes hand-in-hand with any hazardous chemicals. Not only do the mandatory diamonds specifying the types of chemicals need to be clearly visible at entrance points to the property—if you store large amounts of these chemicals, you need a manifest, a list of all the dangerous chemicals on site, mounted in a box accessible to the fire brigade in the event that something goes wrong. “Some of the more common flammable


liquids—petrol, If disobeying a sign for example—are could cause death AS1319 Signage kept in buckets you need to have the AS1851 Fire prevention in workshops appropriate danger AS1940 Storage of dangerous goods while they’re sign.

First Aid in the Workplace complacent “Often people trying about these to do the right thing products when request the wrong you are working with them every day. It’s wording because they’re simply unaware important that they are stowed away at of the workplace standards,” says Linda the end of the day.” Wilcox. And where there are dangerous Wilcox suggests some questions to chemicals stored at a workplace, there consider when it comes to signage: must be readily accessible safety showers Most places have a first-aid kit, but and eye wash stations nearby. does everyone know where it’s kept? Do “Regular taps flow at a rate of about you have adequate signage to where the 25L per minute,” says Baker. “The flow kit is located—is it visible from all angles? rate of a safety shower must be at least Do you need a double-sided off-wall sign? 75L per minute—you need a high volume In the case of a chemical getting into of water to flush away chemicals that someone’s eye, do you know where the have come into contact with skin where SDS (formerly called the MSDS) register PPE (personal protective equipment) has is?

But this is a tricky process been used? without the appropriate safety equipment. Do you have a high proportion “A bund or dam or absorbent material can of migrant workers?

It’s also important that these measures, including safety signage, meet the Australian Standards—AS 1319 is the standard pertaining to signage.

MSA – A World Leader in Head Protection Head protection is required in almost every industry, where there is a risk of being injured by falling objects, restricted headroom, or there is a risk of falling when working at height. In many workplaces head protection is mandatory and is the primary piece of personal protective equipment worn by millions of people everyday. To ensure that your head protection remains in top working order MSA recommends the following simple steps: 1. Keep it clean - Remove dirt and stains from the shell and suspension using a mild detergent. This will make inspection easier. 2. Inspect Daily - The shell should be inspected for dents, cracks, nicks, gouges or any damage that might reduce protection. Any hard hat that shows signs of worn or damaged parts should be removed from service immediately. 3. Replace Regularly - Hard hats should be replaced every 3 years from the in-service date or more frequently where there has been exposure to extreme conditions such as temperature extremes, sunlight or chemicals. Suspensions should be replaced every 2 years as these can degrade more quickly from contact with skin. Any hard hat which has sustained an impact must also be replaced even if the shell looks OK as the suspension will have stretched and will not fully protect the wearer from future impacts. MSA manufactures a range of hard hats for every situation such including Vented, Un-vented and Hi-Temp caps all Certified to AS/NZS 1801:1997. Did you know? MSA hard hats are certified to be worn in reverse (suspension in normal orientation) providing the best upward visibility whilst maintaining head protection.
