INCIDENT/ INVESTIGATION DETAILS: add additional pages and photographs as required

EXACT LOCATION OF INCIDENT: eg. Particular building/room, while in transit (vehicle etc)

The workshop behind the main administration building.

plant/substance/equipment involved

Construction of a shelving unit.

WHAT HAPPENED? Please include a description of events:

A wooden shelving unit was purchased on the 27th of November 2008. It was a modular unit that required glueing and nailing.
As the site has a pneumatic nailgun it was decided that the use of the nailgun would be more effective and quicker. Kevin and
Barry unpacked the carton containing the timber parts that made up the shelving unit. Kevin used the nailgun while Barry held
the timber parts of the unit in place. Both Kevin and Barry were wearing safety glasses.

During the construction of the unit Kevin took off his safety glasses (due to them being scratched) to look at one of the nails he
had just inserted into the unit to ensure that the nail had gone in properly. During the time Kevin had removed his safety
glasses he accidently touched the trigger of the nailgun which sent a nail to the cement floor of the workshop. The nail
ricocheted off the cement floor and lodged in his left eye.
A pressure bandage was placed around the injury site and Kevin was rushed to the Victor Harbour Hospital, where he was
transported by ambulance to the Royal Adelaide.

Review Date: January 2010
                   Catholic Safety Health & Welfare SA

People: (eg culture, language, fatigue?) Kevin was experienced in the use of the nailgun and has used nailguns in his previous
employment in the construction industry.

Total hours worked when incident occurred: 1 hr

Environment: (eg lighting, temperature, wind?) There is adequate lighting in the workshop and a light meter reading of 1500 lux
was performed on the 17th of July 2006. There has been no change to the lighting since that date. Light is provided by both
natural (via skylights) and artificial.

Plant/Equipment: (eg guarding, maintenance, type of plant/equipment?) Ryobi SX 300 nailgun using 40mm nails and an Acme
100psi air compressor.

Materials: (eg suitable for task, clothing, footwear, personal protective equipment, materials used?) Both Kevin and Barry were
wearing their issued overalls, ear protection, safety glasses and safety boots. Kevin’s safety glasses were scratched which
made visibility difficult.

Procedure/Job/Task: (eg appropriate procedure, task organisation, training, SOP’s, supervision?)
         No risk assessment was performed on this task.
         There is in place a prepurchase risk assessment for thre nailgun.
         A safe operating procedure (SOP) has been produced for the use of the nailgun and is kept in the nailgun case.
         Kevin’s safety glasses have been scratched over time and made it difficult to perform close examinations.
         Personal protective equipment (PPE) has not been placed on the maintenance register.

LIST ACTIONS TO PREVENT REOCCURRENCE Manager/Supervisor should complete in consultation with the H&S Rep
where appointed and those involved.

Immediate Action Taken – Ensure that all PPE is checked and any faulty items replaced.

Interim Controls: (Short Term)
         Ensure all tasks are risk assessed by the supervisor and employee involved with the task.
         Ensure PPE is placed on the maintenance schedule and is checked as per the manufactures recommendations or
          every six months.
         Encourage employees to report damaged PPE immediately.

Proposed Permanent Controls –
         Review the risk assessment for the nailgun.
         Perform risk assessments for all the tasks that require the use of the nail gun and use the Hyrachy of Control to
          implement appropriate controls. Where possible select suitable controls that will eliminate the use of the nailgun such
          as the purchase of pre-assembled furniture/shelving, liquid nails, screws, dowels etc.
         Review the SOP for the nailgun and ensure the inclusion of the removal of safety glasses is prohibited.
         Remind employees of their responsibilities to their own health and safety in using PPE.
