    Health and Safety Policy Statement and Objectives

    The major components of the carpentry shop safety program provide for the students to

    complete a written test, attend a detailed demonstration, and prove tool, machine, and

    equipment use with a performance exam. Written documentation for listed tools, machines, and

    equipment are kept on file. Performance exams must be completed to 100%. Training is

    provided in OSHAs four important target areas; fell from, struck by, caught in between, and

    electrocution, along with other mandatory OSHA job site training. The materials that follow

    along with the evaluating methods listed above provide the outline for a comprehensive accident

    prevention program. However, student attitude and common sense are the primary elements of

    safety, and these cannot be conveyed on paper or with written tests. These two elements, then,

    attitude and common sense, depend largely on the instructors own perception of students ability.

    Therefore, it is at the instructors discretion, to prohibit the student from operating or using

    tools/equipment until an acceptable attitude and level of common sense is displayed regardless of

    written or performance exams. Attitudes toward safety are inherent in the surrounding

    influences of the shop and are supported by the administration.

    Primary Objectives:

    1. To provide students and instructors with a safe and healthy work environment.

    2. To have the students develop an attitude and habits about safety that they will

    promote for a lifetime in any employment or situation.

    Health and Safety Program Outcome

    The Carpentry Health and Safety Program Does The Following:

    1. Provides a clear list of safety and health rules.

    2. Involves students developing and revising safety rules.

    3. Involves regular safety inspections of power tools.

    4. Involves regular safety inspections of equipment.

    5. Has weekly safety meetings to discuss inspection results, review

    safety and health fundamentals, and discuss any student concerns.

    6. Makes safety and health performance a part of the evaluation

    process.

    7. Provides the necessary protective equipment, facilities, and

    reference resources.

    8. Provides classroom and on site OSHA safety training and issues

    students 10 hour cards.

    9. Records injuries and accidents and conducts investigation when

    they occur.

    10. Insures that the practices employed in the shop and on the job are

    consistent with that of industry.

    Jobsite Health and Safety Policies and Procedures

    General Instructor Responsibilities

    Both instructors are dedicated and give full support to the health and safety policy and

    objectives of this plan.

    Student Safety

    Carpentry students will comply with all health and safety laws, rules and regulations in

    shop and at off site locations.

    Student Dress and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

    It is the carpentry Instructors policy to eliminate hazards by using all feasible

    engineering and work practice controls before requiring the use of PPE. PPE is the last

    level of control.

    Carpentry students will dress and use proper PPE in accordance with shop policy and

    carpentry shop rules. See appendix A for carpentry dress and safety rules

    Eye Protection

    Carpentry students and visitors will comply with Chapter 71 Section 55C of the MGL.

    School Fire/ Emergency Evacuations

    Carpentry students are given instruction as to emergency evacuations and fire alarm

    drills are conducted by the school and local fire departments.

    Jobsite Fire/ Emergency Evacuations

    Carpentry students working on offsite construction projects follow procedure as listed in

    carpentry emergency action plan for offsite projects. The EAP along with emergency

    numbers are posted at the jobsite and practiced at the beginning of each job. Student

    signatures are kept on file. See appendix B for Emergency Action Plan and Emergency

    Numbers.

  • School Accident Injury Procedures

    Minor accidents and injuries are referred to the school nurse. The code 1000 procedure

    is used for major accidents and injuries.

    Jobsite Accident Injury Procedures

    Carpentry students working on offsite construction projects follow procedure as listed in

    carpentry emergency action plan for offsite projects. The EAP along with emergency

    numbers are posted at the jobsite and practiced at the beginning of each job. Student

    signatures are kept on file. Minor accidents and injuries are treated on site. In the event

    of a larger injury or accident an ambulance will be called. Local authorities are notified

    of the job location and students involvement prior to the beginning of work. See

    appendix B for Emergency Action Plans and other jobsite postings.

    Accident Reporting and Investigation

    Accidents reports are completed for every incident reported to the nurse and kept on file

    in the nurses office. All accidents are investigated and measures taken to eliminate the

    hazard. Records of minor offsite injuries are kept on file at the jobsite.

    Tool and Machine Guarding and Safety Training of Tools

    All tools and machines used in the shop and off campus projects are equipped with

    guards that meet OSHA specifications. Tools used on off campus projects are checked

    weekly and removed from service and repaired if inoperable. Students are required to

    take a written test and a performance test for tools and equipment used.

    See appendix C for sample tool use documentation

    Electricity

    All electrical use is in conjunction with standards set by OSHA. All electrical supply

    lines used in off campus projects are GFCI. All tools are unplugged or locked out for

    blade change, adjustment or repair.

  • Noise

    Ear protection is required and available when levels reach a level of potential danger.

    Material and Supply Storage

    Majority of carpentry materials are stored in a storage building located outdoors, on 2

    lofts in the shop area. Other supplies are stored in compliance with OSHA regulations.

    Materials for offsite jobs are stored using methods consistent with industry. Tools and

    supplies are kept in a locked job box located in the construction trailer.

    Waste Disposal A dumpster is provided for shop waste. Waste generated by off campus projects is

    disposed of in a manner set by the town/ city where the project occurs.

    Record Keeping

    Carpentry shop maintains a record for any student safety training, safety meetings,

    Accident / incident reports are kept on file in the nurses office. See appendix C for

    sample documentation.

    Off Campus / CO-OP Requirements It is the policy of the carpentry instructors that no student is allowed to participate in off

    campus projects or work in the cooperative education program unless the appropriate

    level of maturity and safety is achieved. Students must complete their safety portfolio in

    order to participate in the cooperative work program.

    See appendix D for a sample portfolio.

    Jobsite Transportation

    Carpentry students are transported to and from off site projects in a school bus. Seat

    belts are required by all students. Students who refuse compliance will not be allowed to

    participate in outside projects. All students receive training for bus emergencies

    including exits, fire extinguisher and first aid kit location, loading and unloading.

    Student signatures are kept on file.

  • Safety Violations

    Parents/ Guardians of students who repeatedly demonstrate an unwillingness to

    cooperate with carpentrys effort to maintain a safe working environment will be

    notified of such behavior by the Vice Principal and may not be allowed to participate in

    shop or jobsite activities till behavior improves.

    Fall Protection

    Students in off site projects receive fall protection training as part of the jobsite training,

    however, sometimes conventional methods of fall protection are not feasible or actually

    create a greater hazard. Therefore a fall protection plan is created for every outside

    project. See appendix E

    Substance Abuse

    Any student suspected of substance abuse will be reported to the school nurse for

    evaluation.

  • McCann Carpentry Shop We Build The Skills That Build America

    Carpentry Health and Safety Committee

    Jobsite Safety Foreman

    The carpentry shop health and safety committee will be comprised of

    instructors and students from each shop week. Shop duties will include

    completing check off sheets.

    On offsite projects one student is designated weekly as a job safety foreman.

    The foreman is responsible for assigned safety duties. Duties are posted at

    each jobsite. See appendix G for duties.

    The main objective of the student safety committee/ jobsite foreman is to

    help motivate, educate and train students to recognize, report, and correct

    hazards in a construction environment.

    Carpentry Emergency Action Plan

    Students working at offsite projects must follow procedures for fire and

    medical emergencies posted at the job. These procedures are reviewed at the

    beginning of a job and repeated as needed. These 3 questions are asked.

    What do we do if there is a fire emergency?? What do we do if there is a

    medical emergency?? What do we do if the instructor is injured, ill or is

    unconscious?? These scenarios are reviewed before any work is begun.

    Depending on the job location, local authorities are notified of the location of

    the student project within the community in the event of the instructors

    inability to call for assistance. An example would be a student calling for

    help saying we are from McCann and we have an accident and hangs up.

    Emergency vehicles would be sent to the school. This will help eliminate that

    mix-up. Students are also reminded calling 911 on a cell phone will hook you

    up with an operator in Northampton. Students must understand the exact

    location must be given.

    Appendix E Sample Fall Protection Plan

  • McCann Technical School Fall Protection Plan

    Carpentry Shop

    THIS FALL PROTECTION PLAN IS SPECIFIC FOR THE FOLLOWING PROJECT:

    Location of Job: Alcombright Field Job

    Date Plan Prepared or Modified: May 12, 2009

    Plan Prepared By: Mr. Kruzel

    Plan Approved By: Mr. Kruzel

    1. STATEMENT OF SCHOOL POLICY.

    McCann Carpentry is dedicated to the protection if its students from on-the-job injuries. All students of

    McCann Carpentry have the responsibility to work safely on the job. The purpose of the plan is to supplement our existing safety and health program and to ensure that every student who is enrolled in the outside carpentry program recognizes

    workplace fall hazards and learns to takes the appropriate measures to address those hazards.

    This Fall Protection Plan addresses the use of conventional fall protection at a number of areas on the

    project, as well as identifies specific activities that require non-conventional means of fall protection. During the

    construction of residential buildings under 48 feet in height, it is sometimes infeasible or it creates a greater hazard to use

    conventional fall protection systems at specific areas or for specific tasks. The areas or tasks may include, but are not

    limited to:

    a. Setting and bracing of roof trusses and rafters;

    b. Installation of floor sheathing and joists;

    c. Roof sheathing operations; and

    d. Erecting exterior walls.

    In these cases Conventional Fall protection systems may not be the safest choice for our students. This plan is

    designed to enable students to recognize the fall hazards associated with this job and to establish the safest procedures that

    are to be followed in order to prevent falls to lower levels or through holes and openings in walking/working surfaces.

    Each student will be trained in these procedures and will strictly adhere to them except when doing so would

    expose the student to a greater hazard. Any students concerns will be addressed before proceeding. It is the responsibility of the Carpentry Instructor to implement this Fall Protection Plan. Continual

    observational safety checks of work operations and the enforcement of the safety policy and procedures to assure the safety

    of the students. It is also the responsibility of the student to bring the Instructors attention any unsafe or hazardous

    conditions, practices or concerns that may cause injury to either themselves or any other students. Any changes to the Fall

    Protection Plan must be approved by Mr. Kruzel.

    II. FALL PROTECTION SYSTEMS TO BE USED ON THIS JOB

    Installation of roof trusses/rafters, exterior wall erection, roof sheathing, floor sheathing and joist/truss activities

    will be conducted by students only after a complete safety demonstration to recognize the fall hazards have been completed.

    Controlled Access Zones When using the Plan to implement the fall protection options available, students must be protected through limited

    access to high hazard locations. Before any non-conventional fall protection systems are used as part of the work plan, a

  • controlled access zone (CAZ) shall be clearly defined by the Instructor as an area where a recognized hazard exists. The separation of the CAZ shall be communicated by the Instructor in a recognized manner, either through signs, wires, tapes,

    ropes, or chains. McCann Carpentry shall take the following steps to ensure that the CAZ is clearly marked or controlled by

    the Instructor:

    all access to the CAZ must be restricted to only students doing work in the CAZ;

    all students who are permitted in the CAZ will have attended a demonstration;

    the Instructor shall ensure that all protective elements of the CAZ be implemented prior to the beginning of work.

    Installation Procedures for Roof Truss and Rafter Erection

    During the erection and bracing of roof trusses/rafters, conventional fall protection may present a greater hazard to

    students. On this job, safety nets, guardrails and personal fall arrest systems will not provide adequate fall protection

    because the nets will cause the walls to collapse, while there are no suitable attachment or anchorage points for guardrails

    or personal fall arrest systems.

    On this job, requiring students to use a ladder for the entire installation process will cause a greater hazard because

    the worker must stand on the ladder with his back or side to the front of the ladder. While erecting the truss or rafter the

    worker will need both hands to maneuver the truss and therefore cannot hold onto the ladder. In addition, ladders cannot be

    adequately protected from movement while trusses are being maneuvered into place. Many students may experience

    additional fatigue because of the increase in overhead work with heavy materials, which can also lead to a greater hazard.

    In this case, the erection and dismantling of the scaffold would expose students to a greater fall hazard than erection of the

    trusses/rafters. On all walls eight feet or less, students will install exterior wall bracket scaffolds along the exterior wall

    below the location where the trusses/rafters will be erected.

    If the Instructor decides where the use of scaffolds and ladders would create a greater hazard, safe working

    procedures will be utilized when working on the top plate and will be monitored by the Instructor. During all stages of

    truss/rafter erection the stability of the trusses/rafters will be ensured at all times

    McCann Carpentry shall take the following steps to protect students who are exposed to fall hazards while working

    from the top plate during roof truss or rafter installation:

    only students who have been explained the dangers and who show confidence and proper work ethic will

    be allowed to work on the top plate during roof truss or rafter installation;

    students shall have no other duties to perform during truss/rafter erection procedures;

    all trusses/rafters will be adequately braced before any student can use the truss/rafter as a support;

    students will remain on the top plate using the previously stabilized truss/rafter as a support while other

    trusses/rafter are being erected;

    students will leave the area of the secured trusses only when its necessary to secure another truss/rafter;

    the first two trusses/rafters will be set from staging or ladders leaning on side walls at points where the

    walls can support the weights of the ladder; and

    a student will climb onto the interior top plate via a ladder or catwalk to secure the peaks of the first two

    trusses/rafters being set.

    The students responsible for detaching trusses from cranes and/or securing trusses at the peaks traditionally are

    positioned at the peak of the trusses/rafters. There are also situations where students securing rafters to ridge beams will be

  • positioned on top of the ridge beam.

    McCann Carpentry shall take the following steps to protect workers who are exposed to fall hazard while securing

    trusses/rafters at the peak of the trusses/ridge beam:

    only students who have been explained the dangers and who show confidence and proper work ethic will

    be allowed to work at the peak during roof truss or rafter installation;

    once truss or rafter installation begins, students not involved in that activity shall not stand or walk below

    or adjacent to the roof opening or exterior walls in any area where they could be struck by falling object;

    students shall have no other duties than securing/bracing the trusses/ridge beam;

    students positioned at the peaks or in the webs of trusses or on top of the ridge beam shall work from a

    stable position, either by sitting on a ridge seat or other equivalent surface that provides additional

    stability or by positioning themselves in previously stabilized trusses/rafters and leaning into and reaching

    through the trusses/rafters;

    students shall not remain on or in the peak/ridge any longer than necessary to safely complete the task.

    Roof Sheathing Operations

    Roof sheathing is installed after all trusses/rafters and any permanent truss bracing is in place. Roof structures are

    unstable until some sheathing is installed, so students installing roof sheathing cannot be protected from fall hazards by

    conventional fall protection systems until it is determined that the roofing system can be used as an anchorage point or has

    an adequate surface to attach other means of fall protection. At that point, students shall be protected by one of the typical

    fall protection methods. Trusses/rafters are subject to collapse if a student falls while attached to a single truss with a

    belt/harness. Nets could also cause collapse, and there is no place to attach guardrails. All students will ensure that they

    have secure footing before they attempt to walk on the sheathing, including cleaning shoes/boots of mud or other slip

    hazards. To minimize the time students must be exposed to a fall hazard, material will be staffed to allow for the quickest

    installation of sheathing:

    once roof sheathing installation begins, students not involved in that activity shall not stand or walk

    below or adjacent to the roof opening or exterior walls in any area where they could be struck by

    falling objects;

    the Instructor shall determine the limits of this area, which shall be clearly communicated to students

    prior to placement of the first piece of roof sheathing;

    the Instructor may order work on the roof to be suspended for brief periods as necessary to allow

    other students to pass through such areas when this would not create a greater hazard;

    only qualified students shall install roof sheathing;

    the bottom row of roof sheathing may be installed by students standing in truss webs;

    after the bottom row of roof sheathing is installed, a slide guard extending the width of the roof shall

    be securely attached to the roof. Slide guards are to be constructed of no less than normal 4 height

    capable of limiting the uncontrolled slide of students. Students should install the slide guard while

    standing in truss webs and leaning over the sheathing;

  • additional rows of roof sheathing may be installed by students positioned on previously installed

    rows of sheathing. A slide guard can be used to assist students in retaining their footing during

    successive sheathing operations; and

    additional slide guards shall be securely attached to the roof at intervals not to exceed 13 feet as

    successive rows of sheathing are installed. For roofs with pitches in excess of 9-in-12, slide guards

    will be installed at four-foot intervals.

    When wet weather (rain, snow, or sleet) are present, roof sheathing operations shall be suspended

    unless safe footing can be assured for those workers installing sheathing.

    When strong winds (above 40 miles per hour) are present, roof sheathing operations are to be

    suspended unless wind breakers are erected.

    Erection of Exterior Walls, Floor Joist and Floor Sheathing

    This does not apply to this particular job because:

    The structure is located on a slab with no floor openings;

    there is no danger of a fall over 6 ft. from the slab

    III. ENFORCEMENT

    Constant awareness of and respect for fall hazards, and compliance with all safety rules are expected of all

    students. Therefore, it is at the instructors discretion, to prohibit the student from performing work when dangers of falling

    exists until an acceptable attitude and level of common sense is displayed regardless of written or performance exams.

    IV. ACCIDENT INVESTIGATIONS

    All accidents that result in injury to students, regardless of their nature, shall be investigated and reported. It is an

    integral part of any safety program that documentation takes place as soon as possible so that the cause and means of

    prevention can be identified to prevent a reoccurrence.

    In the event that a student falls or there is some other related, serious incident occurring, this plan shall be

    reviewed to determine if additional practices, procedures, or training need to be implemented to prevent similar types of

    falls or incidents from occurring.

    V. CHANGES TO PLAN

    Any changes to the plan will be approved by Mr. Kruzel. This plan shall be reviewed by the Instructor as the job

    progresses to determine if additional practices, procedures or training needs to be implemented by the Instructor to improve

    or provide additional fall protection. Students shall be notified and trained, if necessary, in the new procedures. A copy of

    this plan and all approved changes shall be maintained at the jobsite.
