NEW LADDER SAFETY AND COMBUSTIBLE DUST SAFETY AWARENESS PROGRAMS


JUNE 2013 – BELLEVILLE, ONT.

Aurora Pictures has recently released two new safety awareness programs, LADDER SAFETY and COMBUSTIBLE DUST AWARENESS.

LADDER SAFETY

Ladders are a common fixture both at work and at home. Most of us have probably used one or more types of ladders, so we feel comfortable working with them. But statistics show that falls from ladders result in 300 deaths and 165,000 injuries yearly and that falls from a short height can result in serious injuries.

This 17-minute video details all of the hazards of working on a ladder. It discusses how to select the right ladder for the job, inspecting the ladder before use, how to transport and set up a ladder, working safely on ladders and ascending and descending ladders safely. For those who work with ladders, this video will give you all the information you need to ensure you and your employees are working safely.

COMBUSTIBLE DUST AWARENESS

Combustible dust hazards exist in a wide variety of industries: grain handling, food processing, plastics, wood and paper products, textiles, pharmaceuticals, and metal fabrication, among many others.  In fact, over 130 products or materials have been identified that can present combustible dust hazards. Many facilities that have processes that produce dust or fine particles may be at risk for a dust explosion. 

This 8-minute video provides a general awareness of how combustible dust explosions are caused and what you can do to recognize and mitigate the possible hazards before it’s too late.  It includes a detailed explanation of what combustible dust is and what makes dust such a highly combustible fuel source.

Both of these programs are available in DVD and streaming media formats. Additional information or free preview is available by calling Electrolab Training Systems at 1-800-267-7482 or emailing safety@electrolab.ca
