Here is some safety information related to using bread slicer.


  • Cuts and lacerations from the blade of the bread slicer machine

  • Slip, trip and fall hazards from wet or slippery floors
  • Inhaling flour dust

Control measures:

  1. PPE
  • All workers operating the bread slicer machine must wear personal protective equipment (PPE) including cut-resistant gloves, safety glasses, and non-slip shoes.
  1. Training and supervision
  • All workers must be trained and supervised in the safe use of the bread slicer machine.
  • Only trained and authorised workers may operate the machine.
  1. Machine inspection and maintenance
  • The bread slicer machine must be inspected and maintained regularly.
  • The machine must be kept clean, and any damaged or worn parts must be repaired or replaced immediately.
  1. Safe operation
  • The bread slicer machine must only be operated by authorised personnel who have been trained in its safe use.
  • The machine must be turned off and unplugged when not in use or when maintenance is being carried out.
  • The bread slicer machine must be set up on a stable, level surface away from any trip hazards.
  • The operator must ensure that the blade guard is in place and in good condition before operating the machine.

Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey there, everyone! Today we’re talking about the role of management in supporting safe work method statements (SWMS). I know, I know, management can sometimes seem like the bad guy, but trust me, when it comes to workplace safety, they can actually be the hero.

Let me explain. SWMS are critical for ensuring the safety of workers in any industry. They outline the hazards associated with a particular job or task, as well as the control measures needed to mitigate those hazards. But in order for SWMS to be effective, they need to be supported by management.

Here are some ways that management can support SWMS and promote a safe working environment:

  1. Provide resources

First and foremost, management needs to provide the necessary resources to implement SWMS effectively. This includes everything from training and education for employees, to the tools and equipment needed to minimize risks.

For example, if a particular job requires workers to use specialised machinery, management needs to ensure that the machinery is properly maintained and in good working order. They also need to ensure that workers are properly trained on how to use the machinery safely.

  1. Lead by example

Management also needs to lead by example when it comes to workplace safety. This means following SWMS themselves and encouraging their employees to do the same.

For example, if a SWMS requires the use of specific PPE, management should make sure that they are also wearing the appropriate PPE. This sends a clear message to employees that safety is a top priority and that they should take it seriously as well.

  1. Provide feedback

Another way that management can support SWMS is by providing feedback to employees. This can include both positive feedback for following SWMS correctly and constructive feedback for areas where improvement is needed.

For example, if an employee is not wearing the appropriate PPE, management should provide feedback on why this is important and what the consequences could be if they continue to disregard SWMS.

  1. Continuously improve

Finally, management should be continuously looking for ways to improve SWMS and promote a safer working environment. This can include reviewing SWMS regularly to ensure they are up-to-date and effective, as well as seeking out new technologies and tools that can help to minimize risks.

For example, if a new piece of equipment is developed that can help to automate a particular task and minimize the risk of injury, management should consider implementing it into their SWMS.

By supporting SWMS and promoting a safe working environment, management can help to protect the well-being of their employees while also minimising risks and improving productivity. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.

So, if you’re in a management position, don’t shy away from your responsibility to support SWMS. Embrace it, lead by example, provide feedback, and continuously look for ways to improve. Your employees will thank you for it, and so will your bottom line.
