5 WHAT IS A CODE OF PRACTICE? WSCC codes of practice provide practical guidance to achieve the safety requirements of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut Safety Acts and related Regulations. As per subsection 18(3) of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut Safety Acts, For the purpose of providing practical guidance with respect to the requirements of any provision of this Act or the regulations, the Chief Safety Officer may approve and issue such codes of practice as he or she considers are suitable for that purpose. WSCC codes of practice apply to workplaces in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. The Chief Safety Officer approves codes of practice for use by all occupational health and safety (OHS) stakeholders. Codes of practice come into effect in each territory on the day they are published in the Northwest Territories Gazette and Nunavut Gazette. Codes of practice do not have the same legal force as the Safety Acts and related regulations. A person or employer cannot face prosecution for failing to comply with a code of practice. However, in legal proceedings under the Safety Acts and related Regulations, failure to observe a code of practice may be a consideration when determining whether a worker or employer complies with the Safety Acts and related Regulations. Employers and workers should follow WSCC codes of practice unless there is an alternative course of action that achieves the same or better occupational health and safety outcomes. Provides practical guidelines. Adapts to individual work sites. May serve as evidence. Should be followed unless there s a better way. 5 Code of Practice Personal Protective Equipment Hand and Arm Protection

6 INTRODUCTION This code of practice provides basic guidelines to ensure worker safety in the workplace through the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) that provides hand and arm protection. An estimated twenty percent of disabling accidents in the workplace involve hands. Hands are a worker s greatest assets and require protection. Definition Personal Protective Equipment means any clothing, device or other article that is intended to be worn or used by a worker to prevent injury or to facilitate rescue. Workers use hand protection to minimize exposure to specific occupational hazards such as those from skin absorption of harmful substances, severe cuts or lacerations, severe abrasions, punctures, chemical burns, thermal burns, and harmful temperature extremes. PPE cannot eliminate a hazard, but can reduce the risk of injury. Employers need to select and require employees to use hand protection when at risk for injury. 6 Code of Practice Personal Protective Equipment Hand and Arm Protection

7 PPE AND HAZARD CONTROL Decisions about PPE form part of the hazard assessment process, the standard work site approach to dealing with potential hazards. There are five basic ways to control hazards. These controls form a hierarchy. Elimination is always the first control to consider. After that, proceed down the hierarchy until the control of last resort, PPE. 1. Elimination (remove from the work site) 2. Substitution (use a less harmful chemical) 3. Engineering (isolate equipment/set guards) 4. Administration (provide training/maintenance) 5. Personal Protective Equipment (provide gloves/goggles) The use of PPE does not prevent accidents or eliminate hazards. Make every effort to control all hazards at the source. Training is also important. PPE cannot achieve its full-protection potential without worker knowledge and cooperation. Several controls may have to be put in place. Certain hazards may require multiple PPE solutions. For example, working with chlorine requires respiratory and eye protection because chlorine irritates both the respiratory system and the mucous membranes of the eyes. Wearing PPE should not add to the hazard or create a new hazard. For instance, proper glove selection can prevent skin damage, but gloves worn while working with moving equipment can create an entanglement hazard. Using different types of protection at the same time i.e. hard hat, ear muffs and goggles, should not increase the risk to the worker. PPE design criteria cannot cover all eventualities. Do not use PPE when its usage creates hazards greater than those for which it is designed. Take uncertainties into account when evaluating potential hazards.

8 REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS Part 7 Personal Protective Equipment Occupational Health and Safety Regulations Northwest Territories and Nunavut Hand and Arm Protection 101.(1) An employer shall provide, and require a worker to use, suitable and properly fitted hand or arm protection to protect the worker from injury to the hand or arm, including (a) injury arising from exposure to chemical or biological substances; (b) injury arising from exposure to work processes that result in extreme temperatures; (c) injury arising from prolonged exposure to water; and (d) puncture, abrasion or irritation of the skin. (2) If a worker could contact an exposed energized high voltage conductor, an employer shall provide, and require the worker to use, approved rubber insulating gloves and mitts and approved rubber insulating sleeves. Exposure to Hazardous Substances 102. If a worker is routinely exposed to a hazardous substance, an employer shall provide, and require the worker to use, protective clothing, gloves and eye wear or face shields that are adequate to prevent exposure of the worker s skin and mucous membranes to the hazardous substance. Part 10 Machine Safety -Grinding Machines 153.(4) An employer shall ensure that a worker who operates a grinder (a) is provided with and uses the following personal protective equipment that meets the requirements of Part 7: (i) an industrial eye or face protector, (ii) hand or arm protection; and (b) is instructed in the potential hazards and safe use of the grinder. PPE usage is specific to every work site and job hazard assessment. 8 Code of Practice Personal Protective Equipment Hand and Arm Protection

9 GENERAL INFORMATION Hand protection against a wide variety of hazards can be provided in a number of ways: barrier creams, finger guards, cots and thimbles, hand pads, mitts and gloves. Choose hand protection that adequately protects from the hazard(s) of a specific job and adequately meets the specific tasks involved in the job (such as flexibility or dexterity). Follow the manufacturer's instructions for care, decontamination, and maintenance of gloves. Be aware that some materials may cause reactions in some workers such as allergies to latex. Offer alternatives where possible. Ensure the gloves fit properly. Ensure all exposed skin is covered by gloves. Gloves should be long enough so that there is no gap between the glove and Do not wear gloves with metal parts near electrical equipment. Do not use worn or torn gloves. Clean gloves as instructed by the supplier. Inspect and test gloves for defects before using. Test all rubber or synthetic gloves for leaks by inflating them.

11 SELECTION When deciding which kind of glove or other chemical protective clothing to use, you should gather and analyze information on a number of factors such as: 1. Complete, accurate description of the task. 2. Identification of all hazards that may require hand protection. This should include a list of the chemicals involved as well as physical hazards such as abrasion, tearing, puncture and temperature. The kind of hazards will also affect the decision to use other chemical protective clothing in addition to gloves. 3. Flexibility and touch sensitivity needed for the task. This need may significantly limit the thickness of glove material that can be used. The requirement for textured or non-slip surfaces to improve grip must also be considered. 4. Type of potential contact (e.g., occasional contact or splash protection or continuous immersion of hands). This will also help in choosing the appropriate length of the glove. 5. Contact period. How long the worker could be in contact with the chemical (and which chemicals) may also influence the selection of type and thickness of the glove material and the choice of lined or unlined gloves. 6. Potential effects of skin exposure. The immediate irritation or corrosion of the skin must be considered in addition to the potential health effects to the entire body from absorbing the chemical through the skin. 7. Decontamination procedures. Consider whether the gloves should be disposed of or cleaned after use. If they are cleaned, consider the cleaning method, how often they can be cleaned, and any special procedures required for disposing of the decontamination wash waste. 8. Training required. This includes: what are the hazards of skin contact with the chemical what are limitations of the gloves what could happen and what to do if the gloves fail when to dispose of or to decontaminate gloves Source: Chemical Protective Clothing Glove Selection, Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS), Reproduced with permission of CCOHS, Code of Practice Personal Protective Equipment Hand and Arm Protection
