Part 1 - Working in the Industry
  • Everyone - new entrant or experienced employee -
    must learn to recognise hazards and risks.
  • think about the result of your actions!
  • being tired, forgetful, inexperienced or showing
    off increases the risk of an accident.
  • learn to recognise hazards and
  • accept that you have a responsibility to
    yourself, others at the workplace (office,
    workshop, flats etc) and your employer to use
    safe working practices.
  • Follow your company procedures and policies

4
Part 1 - Working in the Industry
  • People can get hurt in a number of ways
  • Many different hazards can be found within the
    lift escalator industry

Trapping points Catch points Flying
objects Falling objects Dangerous projections
Control of moving equipment Electricity Fumes Heav
y objects Chemicals and Flammables
5
Part 1 - Working in the Industry
  • Risk Assessment
  • Hazards need to be identified so that risks can
    be controlled
  • It is essential that hazards are identified
  • Adequate precautions are taken
  • Follow LEIA Safety Charter
  • Requirements of the Management of Health and
    Safety at Work Regulations
  • Generic risk assessments
  • Control measures
  • Review of measures
  • Report changes or issues to your Supervisor or
    Manager

6
Part 1 - Working in the Industry
  • Hazard and Risk
  • Hazard something with the potential to cause
    harm.
  • Risk the likelihood that actual harm will occur
    and the severity of its consequences.
  • Steps in a risk assessment
  • Identify hazards
  • Decide who might be harmed and how.
  • Evaluate the risks and decide whether existing
    precautions are adequate or more needs to be
    done.
  • Record your findings.
  • Review your assessment regularly and revise it if
    necessary.

7
Part 1 - Working in the Industry
  • Hazard Identification
  • Hazards to consider include access and egress,
    slipping/tripping hazards, electricity, noise,
    dust, fire, portable tools, machinery, pressure
    systems, work at height, confined areas. There
    will always be others.
  • Lone- and out-of-hours working are not hazards in
    themselves, but may make worse any injury caused
    by other hazards.
  • Who May Be Affected
  • In addition to ensuring your own safety, consider
    all those who may be affected by your work e.g.
    security staff, contractors or members of the
    public.

8
Part 1 - Working in the Industry
  • Risk Evaluation
  • Evaluate the risks (low/ medium/ high) to which
    people might be exposed.
  • This will give an indication of the priority with
    which the risk needs to be addressed.
  • Where the risk is judged to be medium or high,
    action needs to be taken to remove/reduce the
    risk (control measures).

9
Part 1 - Working in the Industry
  • Simple Risk Rating Example

    Likelihood Likelihood Likelihood
    Probable Reasonably Probable Remote
Severity Fatal/ Major High High Medium
Severity Significant High High/ Medium Low
Severity Minor Medium Low Low
Control Measures needed - high priority
Control Measures needed - medium priority
Control Measures may still be needed
10
Part 1 - Working in the Industry
  • Risk Control
  • The steps to controlling the risks in priority
    order are as follows
  • Elimination Avoid the hazard can the hazard be
    avoided or altered to reduce the likelihood or
    risk?
  • Substitution Can the work be altered to avoid or
    reduce the risk?
  • Control the risk at source Can engineering or
    mechanical controls be utilised to avoid or
    reduce the risks? - i.e. guards, interlocks.
  • Personal Protective Equipment only used as a
    last resort as it is the least reliable form of
    protection

11
Part 1 - Working in the Industry
  • Method Statements
  • Method statements define the safe system of work
    to be followed
  • Method Statements should be followed but the work
    should also be subject to a dynamic risk
    assessment as other activities or situations on
    site can unexpectedly create further hazards.
  • Any deviations from the detailed method should be
    checked and where necessary approved by your
    manager / supervisor.
  • ie keep assessing the risks as you go

12
Part 1 - Working in the Industry
  • Safety Signs
  • Take notice of the warning signs at work - they
    are there for your safety. They are normally
    coloured and each colour has a special meaning.
  • RED Circular signs indicate a PROHIBITED
    activity. Red is also used to show the position
    of firefighting equipment.
  • YELLOW signs (sometimes with diagonal black
    stripes) give a WARNING of hazard.
  • BLUE signs tell you to DO something.
  • GREEN signs IDENTIFY or LOCATE safety equipment,
    first aid, or escape routes.
  • Avoid areas marked as Hazardous if you are not
    working there.

  • The LEIA Site Safety Handbook and these Toolbox
    Talks
  • endeavour to give comprehensive advice on safe
    systems and methods of working, but
  • IF YOU ARE IN ANY DOUBT, ASK
