Wastech Engineering follows a checklist, in conjunction with the commissioning form, completed after installation and commissioning of the equipment. The signed form is an acceptance that the following items have been identified and explained to a competent advisor or employee in charge. The personnel should be able to understand all safety and operational issues in this induction checklist:

Safety

  • Identify all emergency stop buttons at all loading points and control panels.
  • Explain safety interlocks and check their operation.
  • Warn against tampering with safety interlocks.
  • Identify the main power isolator and show how to lock it off if the unit is unsafe.

Operation

  • Identify Safe Operating Procedure placard and run through the procedure for loading and using the Baler.
  • Explain the correct cleaning procedures and recommended cleaning and servicing intervals.
  • Warn operators against overloading the receiving hopper and dangers of climbing inside the hopper.
  • Ensure a supervisor or an employee that is responsible for the supervision of the Baler signs the commissioning sign off sheet and receives a copy of this checklist.
  • Ensure Wastech’s name and phone numbers are on the unit in case of a failure or breakdown.

Note: Equipment has been supplied with all the necessary safety switches and interlocks to comply with the current WorkCover and Australian Standards. It is the user’s responsibility to monitor safety interlocks and protective devices on the equipment to ensure their correct operation. Any faults must be reported immediately, and the machine tagged and isolated against further use.
