  2. Metal shavings produced during the lathe operation may cause injury.
  3. Noise from the lathe may cause hearing damage.
  4. Exposure to chemicals used in the cleaning of the brake discs may cause skin irritation.

Control Measures:

  1. Only trained and authorised personnel shall operate the brake lathe.
  2. Protective equipment such as gloves and safety glasses shall be worn at all times.
  3. A protective guard shall be used to cover moving parts of the brake lathe.
  4. Adequate ventilation shall be provided to minimize exposure to any fumes produced during the operation.
  5. Chemicals used in cleaning the brake discs shall be stored in designated areas and used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
  6. Operators shall be trained in the use of the brake lathe and the correct use of all associated equipment.


  1. Check the brake lathe and associated equipment before use to ensure they are in good condition.
  2. Ensure that the brake lathe is properly secured to prevent movement during use.
  3. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment including gloves, safety glasses, and hearing protection.
  4. Position the brake disc on the lathe spindle, and secure it using the appropriate locking mechanism.
  5. Adjust the cutting depth according to the manufacturer’s instructions and the requirements of the job.
  6. Start the lathe and use the appropriate cutting tool to cut the brake disc to the required specification.
  7. Stop the lathe once the cutting is complete and remove the disc from the lathe spindle.
  8. Clean the brake disc thoroughly using the appropriate chemicals and dispose of any waste material in accordance with local regulations.
  9. Repeat the process for any additional brake discs.
  10. Clean and maintain the brake lathe and associated equipment after use.

Emergency Procedures:

  1. In case of an emergency, stop the lathe immediately and remove any personnel from the area.
  2. If anyone is injured, provide first aid as necessary and call for emergency services.
  3. Report any incidents, near-misses, or hazards to the relevant supervisor or manager.

Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey, everyone! It’s your safety guy Gary, and today I want to talk about how to conduct a job hazard analysis for safe work method statements. If you’re in any industry where safety is a top priority, it’s crucial to have a solid plan in place to ensure that everyone on the job site is protected.

A job hazard analysis (JHA) is a process that involves identifying potential hazards associated with a particular job or task, assessing the level of risk associated with each hazard, and developing controls to eliminate or mitigate the risks. Here are some steps to help you conduct a JHA for safe work method statements.

  1. Identify the Job or Task

The first step in conducting a JHA is to identify the job or task that needs to be analyzed. This could be anything from operating heavy machinery to working at heights. It’s important to be as specific as possible when identifying the job or task.

  1. Break Down the Job or Task into Steps

Once you’ve identified the job or task, you need to break it down into steps. This will help you identify potential hazards associated with each step. For example, if the job is operating heavy machinery, the steps might include inspecting the machinery, starting the machinery, and operating the machinery.

  1. Identify Potential Hazards

Once you’ve broken down the job or task into steps, you need to identify potential hazards associated with each step. Hazards could include things like electrical hazards, chemical hazards, or physical hazards. It’s important to be as thorough as possible when identifying potential hazards.

  1. Assess the Level of Risk

After identifying potential hazards, you need to assess the level of risk associated with each one. This involves looking at the likelihood of the hazard occurring and the potential consequences if it does. You can use a risk matrix to help you with this. A risk matrix is a tool that helps you determine the level of risk associated with each hazard.

  1. Develop Controls

Once you’ve assessed the level of risk associated with each hazard, you need to develop controls to eliminate or mitigate the risks. Controls could include things like engineering controls, administrative controls, or personal protective equipment (PPE). It’s important to select controls that are appropriate for the level of risk associated with each hazard.

  1. Implement and Communicate Controls

Once you’ve developed controls, you need to implement them and communicate them to your team. This could involve things like providing training on the controls, posting signs, or making changes to the work environment. It’s important to ensure that everyone on the job site understands the controls and knows how to use them.

  1. Review and Update

Finally, it’s important to review and update your JHA regularly. This is because things can change on the job site, and new hazards can arise. You need to ensure that your JHA is always up-to-date and reflects the current state of the job site.

In conclusion, conducting a job hazard analysis is a crucial step in developing safe work method statements. By identifying the job or task, breaking it down into steps, identifying potential hazards, assessing the level of risk, developing controls, implementing and communicating controls, and reviewing and updating regularly, you can create a plan that keeps everyone on the job site safe. So, get started today and make safety your number one priority!
