Introduction including overview of area inspected and activities taking place

The inspection was carried out at a site operated by Wilson Engineering Works which is a
famous pulp and paper industry in the region at 11AM on 16/09/2015. This company makes paper
for different purposes that is used in books and different office works. Purpose of the visit was to
do a complete and thorough health and safety inspection of the company and advise the higher
management if there were any breaches of legislation and give recommendations they can follow
to abide by law, reduce injuries to zero and help workers to work safely .
Absorption tower was monitored first where purification of pulp is done so that paper
produced is clean and without an impurity. Right to the tower situated is the chipping section
where wood is being chipped. Next to the chipping section is the boiler section where wood pulp
goes. Electrical panels and maintenance department were inspected to make sure all the unsafe
conditions are taken in consideration. Next to the electrical department lies the processing area
and the drying area. Warehouse and management section were inspected while lie within the
spread of workplace. Some other inspections were done on the waste disposal, docking area, main
engineering floor and filtering section to make sure no part of the company was left uninspected.
Whole workplace was selected for the inspection of health and safety issues. Workers in the
chosen areas are chipping wood, then purifying it from impurities. Boiler takes up the pulp and
makes it to such a high temperature so that filtering and drying becomes easy. Docking and waste
disposal are monitored to make sure workers dont get any disease or injury while working.
Management and maintenance department makes sure workers and machines are well looked
after. Warehouse is the main component of the processing paper industry where all the required
parts and storage is present in case of an emergency or for a planned preventive maintenance.
There are above 200 people working in which 150 are solely on the plants and security.
And 50 are in the management which forms all the policies and manages all the cost implications
of the plant. The plant works 24 hours a day with the first 12 hours concentrated on main
production and rest on production and shut down. There are around 6 vulnerable workers in the
company which have been given proper treatment according to their special needs. Absorbers,
dryers, generators, boilers, electrical panels, vehicles and filters form the core components of the
plant. Packaging process is done after all the paper is made out of the wood pulp and it very
important factor in the industry and run by 3 very competent operators that are solely at the
packaging plant to do top job.

Executive Summary

Wilson Engineering Works health and safety management system is generally of a


reasonable standard. However, after completing the inspection and after proper
discussions with the Wilsons management team it was clear that although there were
a number of issues in terms of health and safety, some more significant than others,
the issues could all be resolved within specified time, with proper effort and along
with adequate resources. Doing this would certainly increase compliance with
current legislation and crucially, protect the employees from harm which at present
is a complex and potentially dangerous work environment for the employees and for
even visitors. It was also clear that Wilsons management team take a painstaking and
active approach to health and safety matters and are shrewdly aware of how exposed
they might be if they do not work to continuously improve standards with regard to
Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare)
Regulations 1992, the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and the Regulatory
Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
Recommendations include refresher training and maintenance of signs and electrical
equipment, all of relatively low cost, particularly when related to the risks observed.
Some of them required significant cost as warehouse revamp. One area observed that
was under good control was the testing and provision of clean water.

Main findings of the inspection


As Wilson Engineering Works are performing well over the past few years, but in the last two
years they have secured much larger and considerably more complex projects. As a result it
would appear that the management of health and safety has been compromised and my visit
has shown that a number of hazards are present and that the management systems in place are
not currently in line to make sure there are no accidents. The main areas of concern are:

Work at height (Observation number 9)


There are numerous issues surrounding the carrying out of work at height at the boiler and
these need to be addressed. It is not enough to simply rely on the supervisor to ensure that
work at height is being carried out safely. Risk assessments and method statements are
provided. Workers need proper safety equipment and for the long-term there must be safe
systems of work and guardrails provided around the worker to make sure there is no injury.
The cost implications for medium and long-term are just $150 for safety equipment for the
worker who goes up to the boiler and $170 to install guardrails so that worker will work safely.
SSOW is a documented procedure and it doesnt cost anything. Failure to comply is a breach
of The Work at Height Regulations 2005.

Lack of PPEs (Observation number 2, 12, 21, 27)

Whilst it is clear that Wilson are a successful and generally well-managed company, being ISO
rated, it is evident that given the scope of the hazards found, the management of health and
safety risk at this time is not adequate. The issues detailed above coupled with concerns such as
failure to provide adequate PPE for various activities that are involved in the different
processes. Cost implications in all the areas amounts to $200-500 and PPEs are required until
long-term measures are not taken. Failure to comply is a breach of the Personal Protective
Equipment Regulations 1992.

Fire and emergency procedures (Observation number 25)


There is no fire and emergency procedure in maintenance place for the workers. Theyre kept
busy in the maintenance work and are not involved along with other workers when fire drills
are done and have place never visited for risk assessment. This is indicative of a lack of
supervision on the part of management. It is essential to put signs and extinguishers, update the
fire plan accordingly and ensure safe egress in the event of a fire. The cost implications are
around $1000 for the whole three rooms and that includes firefighting equipment, signs and
emergency lighting. The lack of extinguishers in a number of areas and no indication of fire
exits for workers could result in serious harm or death in the event of a fire. As well as
breaching some of the acts detailed above it is incumbent upon employers under the
Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to put in place procedures to ensure the safety of
employees involved in maintenance should a fire start.

Warehouse Revamp (Observation number 15)

Warehouse was inspected thoroughly and there was many issued concerned but the important
one was old building of the warehouse. And the premature collapse that could happen to the
whole building resulting in deaths. The people working in the warehouse are in large number
and doesnt come at the workplace to get injured. Its moral responsibility of the employer to
provide them with a safe place, safe equipment along with proper training and supervision.
Immediate measures are taken place but it has to be made sure building is 100% safe. The cost
implications are around $3000-3500 to make sure building is safe for the next 20 years. Failure
to comply is a breach of Building Act 1984.

Welfare facilities (Observation number 26, 24)

There are no washing facilities and eating facilities available to maintenance workers and
workers at general engineering floor of the Wilson Engineering Works. Management at Wilson
are poor in doing risk assessment for them and have not done enough in past months in
providing them basic welfare facilities that are their rights. New risk assessments and method
statements are done in order to make sure all the people are involved and no one is left behind.
The cost implications are around $2500 for all the washing facilities and eating facilities of the
worker. By doing this there will be an increased output and workers morale will be increased
and theyll be working safely. Failure to comply with inability to provide welfare facilities is a
breach of Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

Conclusions

As discussed earlier, Wilson Engineering Work are clearly a successful business but
management of health and safety appears to have deteriorated. The companys awareness and
understanding of their duties and responsibilities, though commendable, needs to be translated
into action.
Routine maintenance, provision of guardrails, working at height, earthing of absorption tower
and revamp of warehouse are identified as an areas where attention is needed. The poor
maintenance of warehouse building and lack of emergency procedures were particular areas
requiring immediate management attention. Under the ILO Occupational Safety and Health
Convention C155, Article 16, employers have a responsibility to ensure equipment, plant and
the person is safe and others who may be in the workplace or come into contact with their
equipment. Proper provision of PPEs is a requirement that employer has to fulfil. Stress and
anxiety suggest a lack of appreciation of the need for good health and safety practice.
New workers should have refresher training to remind them of the importance of health and
safety issues. All the areas identified in the findings of this report could result in injury or a
fatality, which would cause pain to the victims and their families. Employers have a legal and
moral duty of care to take action and reduce the risk identified. The inspection identified one
good practice where strong management of hazards was in place, clean water to all the
employees. The good practice is commended and should be continued. Health and safety needs
to be of a high priority as failure to manage risk can lead to prosecution, fines or compensation
claims, which can affect companys reputation and financial position as well as the health and
safety of the people involved.
I suggest that my recommendations are implemented at the earliest according to the priority
allocated to them in the recommendations section. By implementing them, company will
demonstrate to all workers that their health and safety is being taken seriously at all levels.
Also, it will show that, in the long term, a positive health and safety culture is being developed,
which will reduce the sizeable cost attributed to accidents and enhance the reputation of the
organisation amongst its competitors.
