Notice 313291533 served against CKStone Limited on 31/03/2023
Notice Type Improvement Notice
Description IN-TMM21-310323-01- You have failed to prevent access to a dangerous part of machinery, namely the cutting blade of the Eura bridge saw (serial no. 3070). This is because there were no measures in place to prevent access to the saw blade or to stop the movement of the saw blade before the operator enters the danger zone. Employees were seen to place gloved hands close to the saw blade when it was operating in order to sweep away water and slurry. The insufficient guarding exposes employees to the risk of serious cuts and amputations. IN-TMM21-310323-02 - You have failed to prevent access to a dangerous part of machinery, namely the cutting blade of the Eura bridge saw (serial no. 2632). This is because there were no measures in place to prevent access to the saw blade or to stop the movement of the saw blade before the operator enters the danger zone. Employees were seen to place gloved hands close to the saw blade when it was operating in order to sweep away water and slurry. The insufficient guarding exposes employees to the risk of serious cuts and amputations. IN-TMM21-310323-03 - You have failed to ensure that the exposure of employees to a substance hazardous to health, namely stone dust that contains respirable crystalline silica (RCS), which can cause lung cancer, is either prevented or, where this is not reasonably practicable, adequately controlled. This is because employees have not been provided with suitable respiratory protective equipment (RPE) as they have not been face fit tested for their tight fitting RPE. In addition, employees were wearing tight fitting RPE with facial hair.
