The Glass and Glazing Federation’s newly updated easy-to-use reference guide provides an overview to prepare you for working safely in the industry.
The guide gives advice on what to do when you come across a common hazard associated with your work and gives basic direction as to what actions you must take.
It also takes account of recent changes in Health and Safety legislation and emphasises the need for all those involved in the industry to identify, assess and manage risks, working together as a team.
Phil Pinnington, GGF Director of Health and Safety commented, “The re-focus with an emphasis on the practical application of safety practices has been keenly sought. These companies have a willingness to be proactive with Health and Safety and now have a working framework to help. I’m delighted that we’ve been able to bring such practical guidance to the industry.”
For the first time the guide encompasses not only the flat glass manufacturing sector but the customer facing installers. It’s been compiled with the most up to date information and guidance available and aims to help employees understand both the legal aspects of safety but the practical applications.
An online assessment is also available to support the handbook, providing workers with a good understanding of the basic safety concepts. This then helps make sharing their own safety systems much more effective.
