Workplace Health and Safety has conducted a comprehensive job safety analysis for chipping hammers and their uses, e.g. operation of chipping hammer and how to change chipping hammer bits with risk control measures developed for identified hazards per WHS hierarchy of controls.
WHS consultation with employees on health and safety matters to identify potential hazards with operating a chipping hammer and ensure electrical hand tool safety
WHS consultation and participation processes ensure adequate health and safety communication
Pre-operational inspection of chipping hammer per electrical tools inspection checklist, e.g. how to check tools and equipment are free from damage such as damaged electrical cords
Damaged tools and equipment shall have an out of service tag placed on it with procedures for reporting faulty equipment in the workplace implemented
Chipping hammer guard must be fitted to a chipping hammer for protection from an exposed nip point
