HSE statistics estimate that around 12,000 deaths each year are due to occupational respiratory diseases. It has long been recognised that respiratory hazards found within foundries can cause severe and debilitating conditions such as occupational asthma, lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases. Respiratory Protective Equipment is still an important control measure in preventing these.
In this webinar we will discuss:
Detecting & monitoring respiratory hazards
Correct selection & use of RPE
How to implement an effective respiratory protection programme.
Although not traditionally thought of as a profession requiring PPE, healthcare workers can often be exposed to fatal infectious diseases, where despite engineering and strict management controls PPE is often required as a crucial barrier.
This webinar will cover some of the considerations for designing an effective PPE programme, in particular:
The SafeTea Break initiative, developed in partnership with Safety Groups UK, aims to encourage health and safety managers to make the most of short periods during the day to educate staff on health topics and long latency diseases. The SafeTea Break puts a new spin on traditional tea breaks with an innovative choreographed toolbox talk designed to engage employees in discussions about workplace health.
This webinar follows on from our launch webinar and will give an overview of the SafeTea Break as well as discuss feedback, success stories and questions around the topic.
Thursday 9th and Thursday 16th July 2015, 12:00-12:30 pm
Speaker: Steve Ellis
In this two part webinar series we will be discussing some of the workplace noise and vibration hazards. After considering how to assess the risk in your workplace we will be providing some advice for the implementation of some practical control solutions.
3M’s SafeTea campaign is a national promotion to make the most of a group tea break. Utilising a toolbox talk can be a valuable way to engage and encourage compliance within your workforce. This webinar discusses methods to set-up and optimise your 3M SafeTea session so that you and your workforce can make the most of this behavioural change opportunity.
This webinar will cover:
Pre-event set-up and awareness
Delivering the SafeTea toolbox talk to foster workforce involvement and input
There’s often more to being a Health and Safety professional than meets the eye. Communicating H&S, getting your messages across and engaging your workforce is critical to ensure you gain compliance with your policies and practices. However, creative communication techniques aren’t often covered in traditional H&S courses.
In this webinar, 3M chartered marketing professional Jenn Raymond will give advice on how to utilise marketing methods to introduce new and novel ways to effectively understand and communicate with your workforce.
Effective change management can be the difference between business success and failure. Having a workforce adopt changes in approaches to Health and Safety can seem daunting, however steps can be taken to support a successful change management program.
“How do I know when to change my filters?” is one of the most frequently asked questions about respiratory protection. Unfortunately, with regard to gas & vapour filters, this hasn’t always been an easy question to answer. Changing filters on a pre-defined schedule is generally considered good practice but this can lead to filters being discarded whilst they still have available capacity. Waiting until the gas or vapour breaks through means that the wearer has been exposed to the hazard.
This webinar will discuss the BSIF Product Innovation Awards 2015 winner, the 3MTM 6000i Series End of Service Life Indicator Filters, and how they can help you to better manage your filter change schedule. The filters feature a simple visual indicator, which, when used in appropriate environments, will develop to help determine the remaining filter service life.
