Working with hazardous substances
A safety helmet protects against injuries to the head that may arise from impact or falling objects.
Slips, trips and falls are the main cause of accidents in all industrial sectors, both in heavy industry as well as in the office.
Skin damage can be caused by abrasion, pressure, impact and as a result of cuts or contact with irritating substances.
When working with sharp objects, materials and / or tools it might be necessary to protect hands and sometimes wrists and forearms. Think about working with for instance glass, sharp steel and butcher knives.
Working outdoors involves three great risk factors: 1) heat 2) cold 3) UV-radiation.
Road workers are at risk of being hit. Under all conditions safety measures are therefore necessary to avoid collisions.
A fire can have irreversible consequences for the health and safety of people who work in the building, the local residents and if toxins are released even for the people miles around. Therefore national and municipal governments apply stringent requirements for the design, installation and construction of company premises.
Employers often underestimate the danger that employees may be exposed to when working near water.
Signal or signalling clothing stands out and makes the wearer more visible in his (work) environment.
During welding welding fumes are released. Inhaling these fumes is bad for the health. During electric welding there is a chance of exposure to UV radiation. This can be harmful to eyes and skin.
Dust is a collective name for all types of particles that can easily be carried in an air current. Some kinds of dust, such as quartz dust, are harmful to the health if the proper or adequate measures are not taken
If a workplace is too cold, employees may perform less well and moreover they might get ill. This applies to everyone who works in the outdoors, in unheated warehouses and refrigerators. Employers should take measures to prevent health damage resulting from cold.
Working at high temperatures or with hot products may lead to reduced performance or damage to health. Possible risks must therefore be mapped.
Contact with biological agents can lead to illness. The employer must do everything in his power to prevent this.
In many sectors employees working in confined spaces, such as in waste processing, the (petro) chemical industry, in oil and gas extraction, transport and logistics, construction and maintenance of containers or agriculture. Work is being done amongst others in or on tanks, boilers, distillation columns, silos, shafts and pipelines, mines, pipes, pits and storage areas.
One of the most occurring causes of an occupational accident is a fall from great height. At a workplace where there is a risk of falling 2,5 metres or more, fall danger most certainly exists. This means a higher risk which could even result in fatalities.
Too much noise at work can result in hearing damage and even to permanent noise/hearing impairment. In order to protect employees against this, employers are required to draw up an inventory of locations and activities where this hazard occurs and take action. Obviously the effectiveness of the measures also needs to be verified.
Electricity and ESD are always a potential danger, even without direct contact. A light shock for example could cause a fall due to the startling.
