Topic #80
As a supervisor or an employee you have a responsibility to prevent accidents. Safety is a cooperativeundertaking requiring a total safety consciousness on the part of every employee. No one likes to seesomeone injured, but if an accident occurs, in addition to treating the victim, prompt reporting must takeplace and corrective action taken to prevent additional problems. Proper planning, a good safety program,the right tools, and communication combine to prevent accidents.Good housekeeping must be practiced at all times in and around your work areas. Return unused materialto the proper storage place. Personal Protective equipment must be worn when the task requires it.Clothing and footwear should be suitable for the job. Set the example -- do what is right and never takechances or short cuts -- they cause accidents and injuries.Alcohol and drums have no place on a construction worksite. They will impair your motor skills and judgment. Guns and other weapons must be left at home Employees should be alert to see that guards arekept in place and properly adjusted. Never handle electrical equipment unless you have been trained to doso. Follow lockout/tag out procedures wherever applicable for routine servicing, repair, or relocation of electrical, hydraulic or pneumatic equipment.Any good coach knows all the rules and all the players, and has a plan to get the team moving forward. Awell planned job will have the same effect -- a crew that pulls together to safely accomplish whatever hasto be done. Teamwork, planning and safety training go a long way in having a safe work environment.Know your limits -- ask for help -- take as much training as the company offers -- and look out for theother person. If you do all of the above, you know that your job will be safer for you and your co-workers.One last thing to remember -- never ignore near-miss accidents. Find out what happened so you can makesure it doesn't happen again, to you or any other member of your team!

Know the purpose of each tool in your toolbox, and use each for the task it was designed to do. Keepcutting edges sharp. Before you lift anything think about the weight of the load. Too heavy? Get help, nothurt! When you do lift, bend your knees, hold the load close to your body and use your legs to lift. Bealert to eye hazards at your work site. Wear appropriate eye protection. On and off the job, protect yourhearing by wearing the proper protection.When working on straight ladders, use the four-to-one rule: position the ladder base one foot away fromthe wall for every four feet of ladder height. NEVER use the top two ladder rungs. ALWAYS observe nosmoking signs -- they are there for your protection.Lockout/tagout ensures that power sources have been temporarily turned off. You and ONLY YOU areresponsible for removing your tag and lock when the job or repair is completed. ALWAYS wear your seatbelt, it will save your life. Good housekeeping is a must. Clean up daily at the end of your shift. Plugpower tools into grounded outlets that have ground fault circuit interrupters. Be sure that all electricaltools and extension cords are inspected and color coded quarterly. Before plugging or unplugging toolsmake sure the switch is in the off position. Watch out for pinch points! Do not remove guards or barriers.ALWAYS wear personal protective equipment. Damaged or worn gear should be replaced at once. If youor someone you know suffers from heat exhaustion or cramps or heat stroke, get medical attentionimmediately. No horseplay on the job -- it's one of the primary causes of accidents. ALWAYS read aMaterial Safety Data Sheet before you begin a job using a chemical. Post emergency phone numbers neareach job phone. Every second counts in the event of an accident or other emergency.DON'T TAKE CHANCES! When in doubt ask your supervisor.

Take a moment to think about today's safety topic. Do you use any wood working tools at work? Do youhave wood working tools at home? If you answered yes to either of these questions you need to listen.What you learn today may prevent an injury on the job or at home. Not surprisingly, wood working toolsare designed to be used on wood. They are not to be used on metal, iron, or concrete; or for electricalwork.Hammers, hand saws, air nailers, crosscut saws, ripsaws, planers, sanders, band saws, jointers, circularand radial saws, etc. are just a few of the wood working tools that ran be found on a jobsite or at home.Each of these tools is designed for a specific task.Always read the manufacturer's recommendations prior to using a tool. Power wood working tools comewith a guard or guards in place, to prevent you from coming in contact with a moving part. Never removeor bypass these guards or any other safety device. If you find a tool with a guard missing, take it out of service and notify your supervisor at once. An unguarded blade can kick back and as the saying goes, 'Eatyou alive."Always turn off the tool and disconnect the power before changing blades or bits, or making anyadjustments or repairs. Wear personal protective equipment if there is the possibility of flying objects, andwear a mask if you are creating a lot of dust. Never wear loose clothing, or jewelry that could get caughtin the tool, even if it's only a hand tool. Check electrical cords and switches, and look for cuts or wear inthe insulation, as well as broken or damaged ground wires.Wood working tools come in handy both on the job and at home. Treat them with respect and inspect eachtool before use. Never carry a plugged-in tool with your finger on the switch. Keep your work area cleanand always - keep tools of all kinds
out of the reach of children.
A good tool deserves good care. Always store wood working tools property.
