Why do you need safe work procedures?
Safe Operating or work procedures make workers aware of risks in their work tasks and tell them how to avoid injury or illness while doing those tasks.
Safe operating procedures briefly document the risks associated with a work task and list the appropriate risk control measures into a sequence of steps for doing the task safely.
It should identify the PPE required, Pre-operational safety checks, Operational safety procedures, housekeeping and outline potential hazards and forbidden activities.
When using machinery, make sure you know how to operate it safely. If you have not been trained or instructed in how machinery operates do not use it.
