SPRINGTIME YARD & FIELD MAINTENANCE

Many industries are coming into their busiest season now--often with increased outdoor work in equipment yards, outside shops or storage areas. Before peak activities begin is a good time to organize, repair and clean-up these areas. Time to accomplish this will probably be scarce later on. The following checklist may make this job easier:

Are chemicals kept in an outside storage facility? If so, are the following in place?

___ Is the written Hazcom Program complete and available to employees?

___ Have all employees been trained in chemical handling and spill clean-up?

___ Are spill clean-up materials available, and close to where they'll be needed?

___ Are the Material Safety Data Sheets in an accessable place?

___ Do all containers meet proper labeling requirements?

___ Is the storage facility organized and inventoried on a regular basis?

___ Are first aid/eyewash kits in place?

Is the yard surface smooth and even, free of pot holes and ruts?

___ Is there good drainage in the yard--no puddles?

___ Is the area free of unwanted vegetation?

___ Are the yard lights functioning and adequate?

___ Is there a method of communicating with the shop if assistance is needed?

___ Are speed limit signs posted and enforced?

Are fire extinguishers:

___ Readily accessible?

___ Mounted and secure at proper height?

___ Marked for intended use?

___ Tagged with dates of maintenance?

Is the area free of tripping/falling hazards?

___ Extension cords put away after use?

___ Tools put away after use?

___ Wood scraps and other debris picked up?

___ Oil and other substances cleaned up when spilled?

If raw material is stored in the area, is it:

___ Inventoried and organized periodically?

___ Do material racks have weight limits posted?

___ Are mechanical lifting devices used to store material in upper racks?

These are just a few things to check, when outdoor work increases. Take care of a yard, camp or outside shop inspection now--before things get so busy, you won't have time!
