Safety and Emergency Planning
Carolyn Grieves, Chair

Water plant operations involve extensive monitoring of both interior and exterior facilities, use of potentially hazardous chemicals, and mechanical repairs which can involve heavy and out-of-position lifting. Outside wintertime monitoring operations often present significant slip/fall hazards. The proper use of hand and power tools, proper lifting techniques and practices, proper use of personal protective equipment and slip/fall protection, and proper training and operation systems use for chemical operations are all safety practice priorities for your utility.

The ISAWWA Safety Committee has developed a pro-active Safety Audit tool designed for periodic use to reduce potential high risk behaviors and increase safe behaviors. You will be able to download this simple auditing tool to do a check of the safety measures at your own facility. You will be able to total your audit scores over time to track up or down safety compliance trends along with tracking the number of incidents, accidents and injuries sustained. The added benefit isthat you will be able to get ISAWWA continuing education credits for filling out the audit. Stay tuned for more information regarding the release of the Safety Audit.
