If your employees have to work in the dark, they need this piece of PPE

by , 21 July 2014
Have you ever had to work in the dark? It's really difficult and creates all kinds of hazards and dangers. Now, if your employees have to work in the dark, for example in a mine or just at night, they face these difficulties all the time.

When you think about how much danger this puts them in, it's enough to scare anyone.

Luckily, you can help them stay safe by giving them the right personal protective equipment (PPE). Not just any PPE though; THIS PPE...

Are you complying with the entire OHS Act and 19 Regulations?
 
Are you 100% compliant? How can you be sure?

Here are the dangers your employees face while working in the dark without the correct PPE

 
Darkness creates one main problem: A lack of sight. Your employees can't see what they're doing and no one around them can see them either.
 
This can cause so many spin off risks it's hard to know where to start. 
 
For example, your employee could drill straight into a power cable and not even know it until he receives the shock. Or one of your other employees could push a wheelbarrow straight into one of his colleagues.
 
So it's definitely not a good idea to let your employees run around like blind moles in the dark.
 
Rather treat the cause of all the problems with these pieces of protective clothing...
 

Give your employees these two pieces of PPE if they work in the dark

 
The PPE you give to employees who work in the dark must help them see. This is why you must give them:
 
1. Head lamps
These can be on a hard hat or just on a head band which your employees put around their heads. This will give them enough light to see what they're doing.
 
2. Reflective jackets
To help other employees see them, give all employees that work in the dark reflective jackets. These reflect even a small amount of light and will help make your employees visible to others.
 
So don't leave your employees in the dark. Rather give them these two pieces of safety gear to keep them safe.
