  • Electrical Hazards
  • Specify.

27
BGSUs Written PPE ProgramHazard Assessment
  • In order to assess the need for PPE, the
    following steps must be taken
  • Each immediate supervisor shall conduct a hazard
    assessment for all positions under their
    supervision using the BGSU PPE Hazard Assessment
    form (see Appendix A). A copy of the completed
    report must be sent to Environmental Health and
    Safety.
  • Engineering controls must be considered and
    implemented, where possible, to abate any hazards
    found.
  • The information found in the hazard assessment
    will be used to determine what tasks require PPE.

28
BGSUs Written PPE ProgramHazard Assessment
  • Chemical Hazards
  • Areas and departments must maintain a current
    list of hazardous chemicals used in their local
    operations.
  • Area and department supervisors are responsible
    for conducting, maintaining, and updating the
    inventory for the employees work location.
  • A sample hazardous materials inventory is located
    in Tab 1.

29
BGSUs Written PPE ProgramHazard Assessment
  • Material Safety Data Sheets
  • It is the responsibility of the supervisor to
    ensure that MSDSs for all hazardous substances
    identified on the hazardous materials inventory
    are available and accessible to all employees
    when they would be working with chemicals.
  • MSDSs contain important information on
    appropriate PPE.
  • A sample MSDS and labeling information is located
    in Tab 1.

30
BGSUs Written PPE ProgramHazard Re-Assessment
  • Supervisors must periodically reassess the
    workplace.
  • If job hazards or PPE have changed, simply
    indicate this on the PPE Hazard Assessment form
    and return to Environmental Health and Safety or
    contact the Occupational Safety and Health
    Specialist for re-evaluation.

31
BGSUs Written PPE ProgramHazard Re-Assessment
  • Elements to consider in the reassessment include
  • ü      Effectiveness of PPE Program
  • ü      Injury and illness experience
  • ü      Levels of exposure
  • ü      Adequacy of equipment selection

33
BGSUs Written PPE ProgramSelection Guidelines
  • After completion of the hazard assessment,
    Environmental Health and Safety will assist in
    the following procedures used for selection of
    personal protective equipment
  • Review possible engineering and/or administrative
    controls before deciding to use PPE.
  • Match the potential hazards with the most
    appropriate types of PPE using the PPE Selection
    Guidelines found in Appendix B of this program.
  • If, during the hazard assessment, a noise or
    respiratory hazard is indicated, the Occupational
    Safety and Health Specialist will provide
    additional program information and evaluation.

34
BGSUs Written PPE ProgramSelection Guidelines
  • Careful consideration must be given to comfort
    and fit. Departments must provide the user with
    proper, well-fitted protective devices.
  • Defective and damaged equipment or PPE shall not
    be used.
  • After the equipment has been purchased and
    issued, employees and supervisors will be
    required to attend the PPE2 training session.

35
BGSUs Written PPE ProgramSelection Guidelines
  • Example located in Tab 3

36
Hazard Assessment and PPE Selection Example
  • Eye and Face Protection
  • Hazard
  • Potential splash from chemicals while cleaning
  • Protection Recommendation
  • Chemical goggles - i.e. Econ 500

37
Hazard Assessment and PPE Selection Example
  • Foot Protection
  • Hazard
  • Potential for slips and falls on wet surfaces
    (i.e. cleaning showers, using scrubbers)
  • Protection Recommendation
  • Rubber shoes or boot covers should be worn on
    wet surfaces for traction

38
Hazard Assessment and PPE Selection Example
  • Hand Protection
  • Hazard
  • Potential penetration/abrasion/cut hazard during
    trash removal, moving bed springs and frames,
    working around sharp metal objects, etc.
  • Protection Recommendation
  • Cut resistant gloves should be worn where there
    is a possible penetration hazard - i.e. Flex Tuff
    Gloves

    it is located
  • When PPE is necessary
  • What PPE is necessary

40
BGSUs Written PPE ProgramTraining
  • PPE2 training session (cont.)
  • How to wear assigned PPE
  • Limitations of PPE and
  • The proper care, maintenance, useful life, and
    disposal of assigned PPE.
  • Supervisors are responsible for fitting employees
    with PPE, issuing PPE, and providing the
    manufacturers instructions for use, care,
    limitations, and warnings (Example located in Tab
    4).

41
BGSUs Written PPE ProgramRe-Training
  • Circumstances where retraining is required
    include, but are not limited to, situations
    where
  • Changes in the workplace or changes in the types
    of PPE to be used which would render previous
    training obsolete or
  • Inadequacies in an employee's or supervisors
    knowledge in the use of the assigned PPE.

42
BGSUs Written PPE ProgramRe-Training
  • When retraining occurs, a written certification
    that contains the name of each employee trained,
    the date, and the subject of the certification is
    required.
  • Contact Environmental Health and Safety for
    questions or concerns.

43
BGSUs Written PPE ProgramCleaning and
Maintenance
  • It is important that all PPE be kept clean and
    properly maintained by the employee assigned to
    the equipment.
  • Cleaning is particularly important for eye and
    face protection. Dirty or fogged lenses can
    impair vision.
  • PPE is to be inspected, cleaned,
    and maintained by employees at regular interval
    and as stated in the manufactures
    instructions.
  •  

44
BGSUs Written PPE ProgramCleaning and
Maintenance
  • If the piece of PPE is in need of repair or
    replacement, it is the responsibility of the
    employee to bring it to the immediate attention
    of his/ her supervisor.
  • Do not use PPE if it is in need of repair or
    if it is not able to perform its intended
    function.
  • Contaminated PPE, which cannot be
    decontaminated, must be disposed of in a manner
    that protects employees from exposure to the
    hazard. To inquire about the proper disposal
    methods of contaminated PPE, contact
    Environmental Health and Safetys Safety and
    Health Coordinator at 372-2171.

45
Environmental Health and Safety Implementation
Assistance
  • Environmental Health and Safety will assist
    departments with
  • hazard assessments and re-assessments
  • implementation of engineering controls for
    recognized hazards
  • selection of PPE
  • training
  • analysis of injury / illness data to aid in
    evaluation of selected PPE
