CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 21



Meeting Date: March 28, 2006

Subject/Title: Adopt a Resolution amending the Council/Administrative Policy Manual to repeal Policy No. 70-1 Accident Reporting and Policy No. 70-2 Injury and Illness Prevention Plan (IIPP) and to adopt a new Policy No. 70-1, Injury and Illness Prevention

Prepared by: Patti Standley, Human Resources Manager

Submitted by: Karen L. Chew, Assistant City Manager


RECOMMENDATION
Adopt a Resolution to repeal Council/Administrative Policy No. 70-1 Accident Reporting and Policy No. 70-2 Injury and Illness Prevention Plan and to adopt a new Policy No. 70-1, Injury and Illness Prevention.

PREVIOUS ACTION
The City Council approved Resolution 2538 on May 14, 2002 to adopt an IIPP. This version of the IIPP was necessary at that time to address requirements of Assembly Bill 1127 that became effective January 1, 2000.

BACKGROUND
In California every employer is required by the California Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1973, to provide a safe and healthful workplace for their employees. Title 8 (T8), of the California Code of Regulations (CCR), requires every California employer to have an effective Injury and Illness Prevention Plan in writing that must be in accord with T8 CCR Section 3203 of the General Industry Safety Orders.

In accordance with the requirements of the IIPP, the City established a Safety Advisory Committee that is comprised of representatives from all City departments. This committee is charged with providing on-going assistance to City departments with regard to safety and compliance with the requirements of the IIPP.

Staff recommends that City Council adopt the proposed Council/Administrative Policy No. 70-1, Injury and Illness Prevention which identifies the City’s commitment to safety and acknowledges legal requirements. Keeping the policy separate from the working IIPP document will provide staff with the flexibility to amend the IIPP document when required by law or as otherwise approved by the City Manager. Managing the document in this manner will allow the City to meet the needs of management and line staff in their efforts to ensure that we meet our obligations as required by law.

A copy of the IIPP document is included for your information.

FISCAL IMPACT
No fiscal impact.

• Material Safety Data Sheets available at each major job location.

IV. SAFETY HAZARD ASSESSMENT:

A. Safety Inspection Program:
Safety inspections to identify and evaluate workplace hazards shall be performed in all Departments by the Department Director and/or their designee. The inspections shall be done using an inspection checklist. Record of the inspections and documentation of corrective action taken shall be maintained by the Department Directors. Safety inspections shall be performed according to the following schedule:

• Periodically as determined by the Department Director with input from the Central Safety Advisory Committee, and as required by law.
• When new substances, processes or equipment, which present potential new hazards, are introduced into our workplace.
• When new hazards are recognized.
• Whenever workplace conditions warrant an inspection.

Members of the Central Safety Advisory Committee, safety & risk control specialists or consultants may do additional inspections with Department Director or City Manager approval. These will be done based upon a specific need or as the result of a serious accident. All reports of inspections will be forwarded to the Department Director and City Manager for action.


B. Hazard Evaluation Process:
A comprehensive hazard evaluation process has been conducted whereby all employment positions have been consolidated into general Job Safety Classifications. Department Directors are responsible to link employee job descriptions with Job Safety Classes:

• Administrative & Clerical Personnel
• Community Services Officer - Police
• Inspection Services Personnel
• Maintenance Personnel
• Parks and Recreation Personnel
• Recreation and Aquatics Personnel
• Solid Waste Collection and Recycling Personnel
• Sworn Police Officer
• Wastewater Laboratory Personnel
• Wastewater Treatment Personnel
• Water Distribution Personnel
• Water Production Personnel
• Water Treatment Personnel

For each Job Safety Classification, a review of the job tasks was performed and records reviewed to ascertain potential and actual safety and health hazards for the Job Safety Class. From this analysis, 35 General Safety Hazards were identified, which covers the known potential causes of injury to employees working in the Job Safety Classes:

General Safety Hazards
Aquatics Lacerations
Burns Mental/Psychiatric Injury
Chemical Spills Motor Vehicles @ worksite
Compressed Air Office Equipment
Dust, Fumes, Mists, Gases & Indoor Air Operation of a Motor Vehicle
Electrical Shocks & Burns Police Pursuit Operations
Emergencies / Disasters Police Arrest Operations
Falls from Elevations Powered Tools
Falls from Mobile Equipment Repetitive Motion
Firearms Slips, Trips and Falls
Fires Strains and Sprains
Foot Injuries Struck by Supplies/Equipment
Foreign Body in Eye Tree Falling Operations
Forklifts & Industrial Truck Operations Trenching and Excavation work
Hazardous Materials/Chemicals Violence in the Workplace
Hearing Loss Welding and Cutting
Infectious Diseases and Bloodborne Pathogens Working in Confined Spaces
Ladders

The process yielded a comprehensive list of preventive safe work conditions, safe work practices and/or personal protective equipment needed to protect the employees who work in a particular Job Safety Class from injury. The completion of this process resulted in the development of General Safety Hazards and Training Requirements, as well as Code of Safe Practices for all Job Safety Classes. The General Safety Hazards and Training Requirements and Code of Safe Practices are contained in appendix B and C of this Injury and Illness Prevention Plan.

V. INJURY REPORTING AND ACCIDENT INVESTIGATIONS:

When an employee is injured on the job, or when they first notice an illness that is a result of or occurred in the course of their job duties, they shall report such instances to their supervisor on the day of occurrence or notice, no later then the end of their shift. Following the report to their supervisor the employee will contact Company Nurse at the RN First Call Service toll-free number (1-877-740-5017) to report the injury/illness, receive advice and, if necessary, referral for medical treatment. Should the injury/illness require medical treatment beyond first aid, a Division of Workers’ Compensation DWC Form 1 - Employee's Claim For Workers' Compensation Benefits, shall be provided. Medical treatment means the management and care of a patient to combat disease or disorder. Employee’s who do not report an injury promptly may have their workers’ compensation benefits delayed or denied. The accident will be investigated by the supervisor, or his/her designee if supervisor is unavailable within 72 hours. The following accident investigation steps will be performed as circumstances allow:

1. Interview the injured employee and any witnesses.
2. Visit the accident scene and gather facts from the employee and any witnesses. Note any inconsistencies that arise in the course of your fact gathering. Take photos or make a sketch of the scene if necessary.
3. Examine the workplace factors or unsafe conditions associated with the accident/ exposure.
4. Determine the cause of the accident/exposure.
5. Develop a plan for corrective action including the date of implementation.

The results of the accident investigation must be documented on the Accident Investigation Report and reviewed by the Department Director or designee. The report must then be distributed as follows:

• Original to the Human Resources Office.
• Photocopy for Department files.

Accident Reporting Procedures Involving City Vehicles:
For all accidents involving a City vehicle, the Department Director and the jurisdictional Police Department shall be called by the employee/driver. If a City employee is injured in an accident involving a City Vehicle, they shall complete an Accident Investigation Report form. This form is in addition to other required vehicle damage reports pursuant to the City’s Vehicle Policy No. 10-9. The purpose of the Accident Investigation form is to report information related to a bodily injury incurred as the result of an accident. If the employee is physically unable to complete the Accident Investigation Report form, the involved employee’s supervisor will complete the form on the employee’s behalf based upon information that is available.

VI. HAZARD CORRECTION:

It is the City's intention to abate, with all reasonable speed, any hazard, which gives rise to a risk of harm in the workplace. In correcting an imminent unsafe condition, appropriate precautions will be taken to protect the safety of employees. The following plan will be implemented for identified hazards in the work place:

• Remove or take out of service the hazard where possible.
• Remove or relocate employees from the area of exposure.
• Provide guarding mechanisms appropriate to the hazard and the specific process or piece of equipment being used.
• Provide appropriate personal protective equipment.
• Adjust work schedules, break periods or job rotation where feasible.
• Provide training in recognizing and taking self-corrective action regarding the hazard.

All such action taken and the dates of completion shall be documented by the Department Director or designee and reported to the Central Safety Advisory Committee and Risk Manager.

VII. HEALTH AND SAFETY TRAINING

Training in the hazards unique to the workplace and the procedures to prevent accidents (personal protective equipment, tool guards, safe handling of chemicals, safe use of tools and equipment etc.) is critical to risk control and is required by various Title 8 Safety Orders. The City of Brentwood safety-training program is provided as follows:

• Safety orientation to all new employees upon hire.
• Whenever an employee is given a new job assignment for which training has not previously been provided.
• Whenever new substances, processes, procedures or equipment that represent a new hazard are introduced into the workplace.
• Whenever the City is made aware of a new or previously unrecognized hazard.
• When required by Federal or State law.
• To every supervisor and member of management staff to insure their understanding of the safety procedures and rules which apply to their department.
• Whenever a Department Director feels that additional training is necessary.

Training shall be documented. Records of training activities (including, but not limited to: orientation, "tailgate safety", workplace security, and special workshops) shall be kept by individual departments. A copy of the sign in sheet including training topic, location of training session, department, employee name, and employee signature will be sent to the Human Resources Office for reference in the event of audit and/or inspection.



Training Subjects: Safety-training subjects include, but are not limited to the following:

1. An explanation of the IIPP, Code of Safe Practices, emergency action plan, fire prevention plan, the Employee Assistance Plan for counseling services and ERMA hotline reporting.
2. How to report unsafe conditions or work practices.
3. The safe use of tools and equipment.
4. The use of personal protective equipment and the appropriate clothing for work, including footwear, gloves and eye / face protection from chemical hazards.
5. The provision of medical services and first aid.

In addition, employees will be provided job specific safety training in the following subjects depending on what Job Safety Classification they are in:

• Aquatics Safety
• Bloodborne Pathogens and Exposure Control Plan
• Body Mechanics and Safe Lifting
• Confined Space Entry and Rescue Procedures
• Defensive Driving
• Electrical Safety
• Ergonomics and Repetitive Motion Injury Prevention
• Hazard Communication Program
• HAZWOPER Program
• Hearing Conservation Program
• Industrial Truck Safety
• Materials Handling
• Mobile Equipment Safety
• Police pursuit and arrest operations
• Respirator Protection Program
• Service Weapon Safety
• Special Operations (Tree Falling)
• Traffic Control Safety
• Trenching Safety
• Use of Force Training
• Welding and Cutting Safety
• Workplace Security IIPP

The above safety training topics will be prioritized by each department based on the needs and hazards of the Job Safety Classes in their department. The actual training is coordinated by the department’s Central Safety Advisory Committee member or training designee, the Human Resources Manager and/or the Human Resources Office.










VIII. RECORDKEEPING:

Each Department will maintain records of accident investigation reports, safety inspections, the action taken to correct identified unsafe conditions and employee safety training. In addition, Administration keeps a separate file of Safety Committee records and accident investigations. Loss information and injury statistics including the OHSA 300 log is maintained at Municipal Pooling Authority (“MPA”). As a local government entity the City is not required to keep written records of the steps taken to implement the IIPP.

IX. ANNUAL PROGRAM EVALUATION:

The Human Resources Manager will coordinate an annual evaluation of the citywide IIPP with assistance from MPA. The evaluation may utilize a variety of information sources, including reports from MPA for statistical trending of claims history. Minutes of safety meetings are reviewed for action taken. Accident investigation reports are evaluated for completeness, corrective measures identified and action taken. Department safety activities including, but not limited to: safety inspections and employee safety training are measured against each Department Safety Training Plan. This annual review examines the objectives, scope, performance and effectiveness of the IIPP as it is applied in each Department.

The annual evaluation will be presented to the Central Safety Advisory Committee for review and comment, prior to being formally presented to the City Manager. Department Directors are responsible for implementing to the greatest extent possible, any recommendations in the report, and the findings are used in the management performance review process.

Department Directors, or their designees, shall utilize the annual evaluation to develop, with other input, a Department annual safety plan. The plan should address and prioritize the safety action steps for the year: dates of new hire quarterly orientations; specific safety training; safety meeting schedules; dates of inspections; personal protective equipment needed and safety communication materials to be used during the following year.

Each Department’s annual safety plan shall be submitted to the City Manager annually, at a date determined by the City Manager.

APPENDIX C

Code of Safe Practices

The safety of all employees is of prime importance to our agency. All employees have a responsibility to work safely and to follow the Injury and Illness Prevention Plan. The following must be adhered to:

1. All injuries shall be reported promptly to the supervisor so that arrangements may be made for medical or first aid treatment.
2. Safety equipment issued to employees shall be used as the job assignment dictates. When any safety apparel (gloves, raincoats, coveralls, etc.) becomes worn and requires replacement, the employee shall present the worn safety apparel to the appropriate supervisor for approval of replacement.
3. All persons shall follow these safe practice rules, render every possible aid to safe operations, and report all unsafe conditions, practices or equipment to the supervisor immediately.
4. All employees shall be given frequent accident prevention instructions. Instructions shall be given at least every 10 working days.
5. Additional safety rules for specific operations apply to those engaged in hazardous work areas or operations. These rules are contained in other safety manual chapters and standard operating procedures such as:
• Lockout/Tagout/Electrical Safety
• Confined Space Entry
• Excavations & Street Work
6. Horseplay, scuffling, and other acts that tend to have an adverse influence on the safety or well-being of the employees is prohibited.
7. Follow all warning signs and signals posted.
8. Do not remove, displace, destroy, damage, or carry off any safety device, safeguard, or warning unless instructed to do so by your supervisor.
9. Wear seat belts, both as an operator or passenger in vehicles equipped with seat belts. The driver is responsible for not moving the vehicle until all belts are fastened. (Exceptions may be authorized by the supervisor where the nature of the vehicle or work reasonably precludes the use of seat belts.)
10. Employees will not jump from truck beds, platforms, fences, or other elevated places unless essentially necessary to the performance of duty, and then only after looking to be sure no objects are in the way.
11. Employees should not ride in truck beds or be transported by industrial (forklift) trucks unless they are contained within an attached device designed for human transport or lifting.
12. Supervisors shall insist on employees observing and obeying every rule, regulation, and order as is necessary to the safe conduct of the work, and shall take such action as is necessary to obtain observance.
13. Workers shall not handle or tamper with any electrical equipment, machinery, or air or water lines in a manner not within the scope of their duties, unless they have received instructions from their supervisor.
14. Work shall be well planned and supervised to prevent injuries in the handling of materials and in working together with equipment.


Code of Safe Practices Continued:

15. No employee shall knowingly be permitted or required to work while the employee’s ability or alertness is so impaired by fatigue, illness, or other causes that it might unnecessarily expose the employee or others to injury.
16. Anyone known to be under the influence of drugs or intoxicating substances that impair the employee’s ability to safely perform the assigned duties shall not be allowed on the job while in that condition. In addition, possession or sale of illegal drugs is not permitted on City property.
17. Only authorized and trained Employees may repair or adjust machinery and equipment. Lock-Out/Tag-Out Procedures must be followed before removing any machine guards or working on powered machinery and equipment. Replace all guards when the job is completed.
18. Only qualified and trained Employees may work on or near exposed energized electrical parts or electrical equipment. Follow Electrical Safety Rules when working with electrically powered machinery and equipment.
19. Only authorized and trained Employees may dispense or use chemicals. It is your responsibility to know where Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS's) are located and that they are available for your use and review.
20. Employees shall not enter manholes, underground vaults, chambers, tanks, silos, or other similar places that receive little ventilation, unless it has been determined that it is safe to enter.
21. Only authorized and trained Employees may enter a posted Confined Space. All permit required confined spaces will be posted “Confined Space – Entry Permit Required”. Entry is allowed only after permits are properly issued.
22. Employees shall be instructed to ensure that all guards and other protective devices are in proper places and adjusted, and shall report deficiencies promptly to their supervisor.
23. Crowding or pushing when boarding or leaving any vehicle or other conveyance is prohibited.
24. When lifting heavy objects, the large muscles of the leg instead of the smaller muscles of the back shall be used.
25. Inappropriate footwear or shoes with thin or badly worn soles shall not be worn.
26. Materials, tools, or other objects shall not be thrown from buildings or structures until proper precautions are taken to protect others from the falling objects.
27. Only a trained and authorized person shall operate power equipment. An employee assigned to operate any power equipment (truck, tractor, mower, sprayer, chain saw, etc.) is responsible for all safety rules involved in its use.
28. Act in a manner designed to preserve the health and safety of yourself and the public being served.
29. Loose or frayed clothing, long hair, dangling ties, finger rings, etc. shall not be worn around moving machinery or other sources of entanglement.
30. Excavating equipment shall not be operated near a trench if employees are working below.
It is the duty and responsibility of each employee to participate in the effort to promote and maintain a safe work environment. Failure to follow the above rules may cause serious injury and/or illness.
Disciplinary action, up to and including termination, may be used to assure rule enforcement. Please use common sense and think before you act. If you are not sure how to complete a job or task safely or have any questions, ask your supervisor.
