1 Employee IIPP Policy Quiz Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Quiz; (To be administered by supervision during topic discussion) Other Related Procedures: Hearing Conservation; (IIPP Manual Policy) Respiratory Protection; (IIPP Manual Policy) Personal Protective Equipment; (Supervisor Policy Procedures) Fall Protection; (IIPP Manual Policy) Safety Reporting Forms & Information: Worksite (PPE) Requirements Poster; (PPE) Selection Chart; (PPE) PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT All employees must wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) required for their work assignments. The Company will furnish employees the necessary PPE to accomplish their jobs safely. Employees assigned to Company projects will receive PPE as required before entering the worksite. Such items may include hardhat, safety glasses, goggles, hearing protection, fire retardant coveralls, etc. Other personal protective equipment such as fall protection, face shields, electrical flash suits, etc. are available through Company tool room facilities. Employee compliance with other safety-related personal apparel is required. These items may include long-sleeved garments, approved footwear, hand protection, etc. Supervisors will post a completed Personal Protective Equipment requirements form on the Company bulletin board for employees to see. This notice will be posted before any project work begins. Refer to Bulletin Boards in this Policy Handbook. The purpose of this Safety Policy is to establish the requirements for the selection, use and care of basic personal protective equipment (PPE). This Safety Policy pertains to all employees. For additional information regarding personal protective equipment, see; The Fall Protection, Hearing Conservation and Respiratory protection sections of this manual. A. All work that may pose a physical hazard to employees will be reviewed by the supervisor prior to work beginning at any job site. Consideration and implementation of the proper PPE, as well as other appropriate controls, must be made prior to the commencement of work. B. Employees will only use PPE distributed or approved by management. Non- Company provided equipment is prohibited unless initially approved by management. C. The PPE equipment required for specific job tasks should either be described by this policy or a facility work specific permit. D. Additional PPE not described by this procedure may be required for specific job tasks and may require consultation with Management. BAI&E Injury & Illness Prevention Program, Section , Page 1 of 7

2 (PPE) DRESS CODE, GROOMING AND SAFETY Employees assigned to projects located at Client facilities may be required to dress accordingly from worksite to worksite. Types of work shirts, trousers and shoes can fall under these Client regulations. Client facilities requiring the use of respiratory protective equipment prohibit beards and long sideburns. Hair length or style must not be a personal safety issue when working around rotating or reciprocating equipment and will be contained by a hat or hair net. Pharmaceutical, food and other similar type manufacturing facilities may also address sanitary regulations regarding appropriate attire and facial or long hair. The Client s policy and regulations regarding these issues will be observed. Your Supervisor may issue more specific guidelines regarding particular worksite dress standards and grooming. Contact your supervisor for any questions regarding personal protective equipment. (PPE) STANDARDS PPE used by company personnel will meet Federal OSHA, State safety and regulatory standards, and nationally recognized consensus standards, which include the following: ANSI Z Practice for Occupational and Educational Eye and Face Protection ANSI Z Protection - Protective Footwear ANSI Z Protective Headwear for Industrial Workers - Requirements ANSI Z Practices for Respiratory Protection (PPE) ACQUISITION AND MAINTENANCE PPE is supplied, stored and maintained in the Benicia, California Warehouse Facilities and on job sites. Specialty (PPE) Items may also be available from the Client s facility when personnel are required to perform other than normal work tasks. Persons requesting PPE will follow the established procedures for their particular job site. In certain cases, job permits or the supervisor s authorization may be required. (PPE) USE PPE will be used according to manufacturers instructions and/or recommendations. The equipment will not be modified without the express written approval of the Management. Any problems with PPE will be immediately reported to the appropriate supervisor. Once the work task is completed, PPE will be removed while minimizing exposure to the user. This may include such methods as washing or vacuuming off PPE at the work site area. Contaminated garments should be protectively removed by progressively turning the garments inside out. (PPE) MAINTENANCE 1. Used PPE will not be left on the ground or in other inappropriate locations. BAI&E Injury & Illness Prevention Program, Section , Page 2 of 7

3 2. Used PPE will be placed in plastic bags and sealed. The bags will be identified with an attached label that indicates the type of work in which the PPE was used. The chemical contaminants (if any) will be defined. 3. PPE used in a severe service that may have compromised its integrity will be disposed of in appropriate hazardous waste containers. 4. All of the returned PPE equipment will be inspected. Any equipment that appears to be visibly damaged will be disposed of. Acceptable PPE will be cleaned and again inspected and tested for defects. A pressure test for leakage will be conducted on all used gloves and boots. (PPE) SELECTION To meet worksite permit conditions, on-site Management will select PPE by reviewing the scope of the work required to be performed. To meet non-permit work conditions, the affected supervisors will select and assign PPE by reviewing the scope of work and/or the job related PPE requirements. Criteria that should be reviewed include: Types of chemical and physical hazards (MSDS, etc.); Amount of potential contact with chemicals; Physical hazards; Duration of work; Weather conditions; Tools and equipment utilized. See the Safety Forms section of this manual or the Computer version of the Policy Workbook, Forms Section, Safety Reporting and Recording Forms for access to the PPE Selection Chart. Management will be contacted when there is a question regarding selection of the appropriate PPE. (PPE) HEAD PROTECTION Standard Class A or B hard hats will be worn in all field worksite areas at all times. Hard hats will be worn in any locations where there is the possibility of head injury from being struck with or by striking another object. Bump caps (hard hats with no suspension) may not be used as a substitute for hard hats. Only BAI&E approved types of winter liners and sweatbands may be used. Many of the winter liners and sweatbands on the market are constructed with synthetic materials (i.e., nylon, cotton and other flammable cloth). Considering the Company s policy on flame-retardant outerwear, there is no rational justification for authorizing anything but flame-retardant liners and sweatbands. (PPE) EYE PROTECTION Contact lenses will not be worn except by office personnel whose duties do not take them into operating or shop areas. BAI&E Injury & Illness Prevention Program, Section , Page 3 of 7

4 Safety glasses with side shields will be worn at all job sites except for office locations. Safety glasses are required at any location where personnel are performing activities that may result in eye injury due to projectiles. Chemical resistant goggles are required to be on the hard hat at all times and must be worn during any activity where there is a high potential for eye exposure to corrosive or toxic liquids. Goggles shall be worn in any work area containing liquid chemicals, dust, flying particles, or as designated by (goggles required signs) in all posted areas. Non-vented goggles will be considered for activities that may generate nuisance dusts or flying particles due to sanding, grinding, breaking or buffing hard materials. Welding goggles with appropriate shading (4-8) shall be worn when performing gas cutting or welding. Flash goggles with appropriate shading (4-8) are required for gas welding or inspecting furnace fires. A helmet or hood with the appropriate shading may also be used. A welding helmet, shield or hood with appropriate shading (10-14) will be worn when performing electric arc welding. Safety glasses will be worn as the primary eye protection. Photo chromatic lenses, which darken when exposed to sunlight and fade when exposed to shade, will not be used for eye protection. (PPE) FACE PROTECTION Face shields will be utilized when performing operations that may result in injuries to the face or neck as a result of flying objects or liquid splash. To provide additional eye protection, chemical goggles will also be worn when working with liquids. A full-face respirator can be worn in lieu of a face shield when the possibility of inhalation exposure exists. A welding helmet, shield or hood will be worn when performing electric arc welding. A sandblast hood will be worn when performing abrasive blasting or chipping refractory. (PPE) HAND PROTECTION The proper gloves should be chosen based upon the types of exposures and work conditions. Consider glove material based on construction, thickness, durability and tactility. 1. Heavy duty PVC (black) gloves will be used for normal operations with minimal hand exposure to hazardous materials. 2. Gauntlet-style Neoprene gloves will be used for tasks where the possibility of exposure to acid, alkaline or water based materials may exist. 3. Nitrile (green) gloves will be used for tasks where the possibility exists for hand exposure to gasoline, naphtha, MTBE, methanol or benzene containing streams. BAI&E Injury & Illness Prevention Program, Section , Page 4 of 7

5 4. Leather work gloves will be used only for non-chemically related manual activities that may result in physical abrasion or cuts to the hands. If the leather gloves are used in a chemical service, a chemically resistant inner glove must be utilized. 5. Gloves will not be worn within 12 inches of rotating parts and pinch points (grinders, rolling mills, etc.) (PPE) FOOT PROTECTION Foot protection is an important part of your personal protective equipment. Tennis shoes are restricted in all work areas other than those administrative facilities located in the Company s Benicia, California office complex. Personnel working in the Company s Benicia, California shop facilities projects located outside of the shop facility are required to meet the following footwear criteria. Sole: The sole must be constructed of oil resistant, non-slip material, and shall be capable of providing a substantial amount of puncture resistance; Heel: The heel must not be less than 0.5 inches in height. High heels are not allowed; Upper: The upper must be constructed of leather or an equivalent material that resists liquid penetration and absorption while providing puncture, impact, and thermal protection. Chemical resistant boots will be worn during activities that may expose the feet to chemicals. Metatarsal (foot) guards will be worn when performing hydro blasting, pressure washing, using jackhammers, tampers or other devices or work that may expose the whole foot to impact injury. In some client facilities, steel-toed shoes/boots may be required. (PPE) BODY PROTECTION The proper type of body suit should be chosen based upon the types of exposure and work conditions encountered. Consideration will be given to style, materials of construction and durability of the outfit. 1. Fire resistant clothing (e.g., Nomex coveralls) is required in all refining and chemical plant facilities. In no cases, except with approval from management, may non-fire resistant body protection be worn over the fire resistant clothing. NOTE: With the approval of the host facility, welders will be authorized to wear leathers over the Nomex suits. Nomex will be worn under leathers with no exceptions. Loss of the privilege and disciplinary actions will be the result of non-compliance of this policy. 2. PVC gear will be worn as necessary to minimize significant exposures to oils and non-corrosive liquids. BAI&E Injury & Illness Prevention Program, Section , Page 5 of 7

6 3. Acid suits will be worn when handling extremely corrosive substances (i.e., sulfuric acid, oleum, ammonia). These suits will be hooded and have double cuffs and protected zippers. 4. Nitrile suits will be worn for work that may involve significant exposures to benzene containing streams, MTBE or methanol. 5. Tyvek or other equivalent lightweight disposable garments should be worn when working in dusty environments and must be used for protection against asbestos, silica (kaowool) and heavy metal exposures. (PPE) ADDITIONAL PRECAUTIONS 1. When performing work in a severe service, the protective gloves will be duct taped under the sleeve of the protective suit to prevent hand exposure. If the bulk of the work is to be performed overhead, the glove will be taped over the sleeve. The pant leg will be taped over the work boot. The tape should be folded over (tabbed) on the end so that it can be more easily removed. 2. Lightweight protective body suits (such as Tyvek) can tear during the normal course of work. This can be minimized by wearing a slightly larger than normal size and applying tape at weak spots such as the knees and elbows. 3. The use of PPE may increase the heat burden on personnel. Care should be taken to insure that personnel are acclimated to the use of the clothing and that adequate precautions are taken to prevent heat stress. Ice vests and vortex tube coolers may help to reduce the body heat burden in certain cases. (PPE) RESPONSIBILITIES Supervision 1. Ensure that employees are trained in the proper use and selection of PPE. 2. Ensure that employees and contractors have available and are using appropriate PPE. 3. Ensure that adequate facilities are available to put on decontaminate and remove PPE. 4. Ensure that only Company and/or Client approved PPE is used. Routinely monitor PPE compliance with permit requirements. 6. Report problems with the PPE to the Management. 7. Inspect all safety equipment. Users 1. Utilize the PPE described in the permit, Safety Policy or operating procedure. 2. Inspect PPE before, during and after usage to identify any damage or defects. 3. Contact supervision if the PPE requirements are not available. 4. Properly decontaminate, if necessary, and remove PPE after usage. BAI&E Injury & Illness Prevention Program, Section , Page 6 of 7

7 5. Properly package PPE for return. In the case of severely contaminated or damaged PPE, dispose of PPE in hazard waste containers. Management 1. Manage maintenance and distribution of PPE for company employees. 2. Inspect returned PPE for possible reuse and properly dispose of damaged PPE. 3. Wash or decontaminate reusable PPE. 4. Test reusable PPE for damage. 5. Repair PPE as necessary. 6. Insure that the PPE personnel functions are carried out. 7. Research and recommend improvements to the PPE selection. 8. Review and optimize use of PPE. 9. Provide input to company personnel on the correct selection of PPE. 10. Review and make recommendations on the PPE use for job tasks at BAI&E.
