Safety tip of the week

Your safety bulletin board The Washington Code publishes basic requirements for what should be on your company bulletin board. You must: Install and maintain a safety bulletin board in every fixed workplace that has eight or more employees. Make sure the bulletin board is large enough to post information such as: –       Safety bulletins –       Safety newsletters –       Safety posters –       Accident statistics (OSHA 300A form) –       Other safety educational material WRA sends out a monthly safety packet including items to go on your safety bulletin board.  Rick Means, WRA’s Safety Specialist, suggests that your Safety Meeting notes also be posted there.  Remember Labor and Industries requires that you keep 12 of the last safety meetings’ notes on hand for review by employees. Members can find past issues of the RASI SAFETY Meetings archive here. WRA employs Rick in part, to help members remain in compliance with L&I safety requirements.

Employers need to provide protective equipment Employers in Washington State are required to provide employees with protective equipment if they have been unable to eliminate injury hazards in the workplace. The state requires employers to make sure employees are properly trained in the use and care of protective equipment. Such equipment could be used to protect the eyes, face, head, body, arms, hands, legs, and feet with items such as goggles, helmets, head covers, gloves, rubber slickers, disposable coveralls, respirators, protective shields and barriers.  WAC 296-800-160 Even if a worker buy his own safety shoes, for example, the employer must ensure that the equipment is adequate to protect the worker from hazards on the job. Retraining is required if an employer has reason to believe an employee lacks understanding or motivation to properly use protective equipment. Also, if an employer has changed job processes with new equipment, this would call for a review of any job hazard analysis and the new PPE needs, if any. There are some good videos in RASI SAFETY TV‘s personal protective equipment section.  Our Retro members will find additional information in the Safety Library that can be helpful. Rick Means, WRA’s Safety Specialist, is available to members to help draw up safety plans and suggest topics for safety meetings. Contact him at 360-943-9198 x18, or...
