Head protection - Helmets

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines for head protection states that:

"Each affected employee shall wear protective helmets when working in areas where there is a potential for injury to the head from falling objects."

The standard also covers conditions where electrical hazards are present thus states:

"Protective helmets designed to reduce electrical shock hazard shall be worn by each such affected employee when near exposed electrical conductors which could contact the head."

"Affected Employees" are defined by OSHA as "those employees who are exposed to the hazard(s) identified as violation(s) in a citation."

The performance criteria for head protection is provided in the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z89.1 American National Standard for Industrial Head Protection. This Standard is incorporated in 29CFR 1910.135 and by reference in 29CFR 1910.6.

Markings

According to the ANSI/ISEA standard, hard hats must also contain user information such as instructions pertaining to sizing, care and service life guidelines. Every hard hat conforming to the requirements of ANSI Z89.1-2014 must be appropriately marked to verify its compliance. The following information must be marked inside the hard hat:

The manufacturer’s name or identifying mark
Date of Manufacture
The legend, "ANSI Z89.1-2014"
The Type and Class Designation
The approximate head size range

Hand Protection

There are many dangerous conditions on the job to which the hand is always exposed. Sharp edges, pinch points, protruding objects, splinters, exposed blades on unguarded machinery and many more. These conditions may not always be too obvious to the working person.

Hand injuries account for 80 percent of all occupational injuries. This is because the hands are engaged in almost all activities on the job.

Wear proper gloves to protect your hands.

Protective Clothing against Liquid Chemicals
Performance requirements for chemical protective clothing offering limited protective performance against liquid chemicals (Type 6 and Type PB [6] equipment). This standard specifies the minimum requirements for limited use and re-useable limited performance chemical protective clothing. Limited performance chemical protective clothing is intended for use in cases of a potential exposure to a light spray, liquid aerosols or low pressure, low volume splashes, against which a complete liquid permeation barrier (at a molecular level)is not required.

The standard covers both chemical protective suits (Type 6) and partial body protection (Type PB[6]). Chemical Protective suits (Type 6) cover and protect at least the trunk and the limbs, e.g. one piece coveralls or two piece suits, with or without hood, boot-socks or boot covers. Partial body protection of similar limited performance (Type PB [6])covers and protects only specific parts of the body, e.g. coats, aprons, sleeves etc.

The safety harness

The harness is only one part of a personal fall arrest system. It’s called a “system” because all the components—the harness, lanyard, rope-grab, hooks and anchor—are carefully engineered to work together.

Strap on the safety harness according to the manufacturer's instructions. Tighten the straps for a snug fit. Double-check all the buckles before you go.

NB: A hazard assessment has to be carried out for all work at height. It is essential that the hazards are identified before the work starts and that the necessary equipment, appropriate precautions and systems of work are provided and implemented.

Contact Kema (E.A) Ltd for more information on fall protection systems in Nairobi, Kampala, Mombasa, Dar Es Salaam and Mwanza.

World Day for Safety and Health at Work

Workplace Stress: a collective challenge

Today, many workers are facing greater pressure to meet the demands of modern working life. Psychosocial risks such as increased competition, higher expectations on performance and longer working hours are contributing to the workplace becoming an ever more stressful environment. With the pace of work dictated by instant communications and high levels of global competition, the lines separating work from life are becoming more and more difficult to identify. In addition, due to the significant changes labour relations and the current economic recession, workers are experiencing organizational changes and restructuring, reduced work opportunities, increasing precarious work , the fear of losing their jobs, massive layoffs and unemployment and decreased financial stability, with serious consequences to their mental health and well-being.

In recent years, there has been growing attention to the impact of psychosocial risks and work-related stress among researchers, practitioners and policymakers. Work-related stress is now generally acknowledged as global issue affecting all countries, all professions and all workers both in developed and developing countries. In this complex context, the workplace is at the same time an important source of psychosocial risks and the ideal venue to address them in order to protect the health and well-being of workers
