Health & Safety Program 

JCJ Services, LLC is committed to the health and safety of its customers and employees. We succeed in maintaining the safest and friendliest work environment possible through background checks of potential employees by an independent agency, thorough safety program education for all new employees, and periodic training and weekly safety meetings for all employees, regardless of experience.

Purpose:The purpose of this program is to establish procedures for the selection, use, and maintenance of respiratory protective equipment for employees of JCJ Services, LLC, located in Glastonbury, Connecticut.

Scope: This program covers JCJ Services, LLC employees who may be required to wear respiratory protection. Situations that may require the use of respiratory protection include the following:

  1. Entry into areas where the air concentrations may exceed acceptable levels.
  2. Operations where the use of engineering controls are not feasible or do not adequately reduce employee exposures to hazardous materials.

Definitions

Air Purifying Respirators: These respirators use filters or cartridges that filter or capture air contaminants. These respirators cannot be worn in atmospheres that are immediately dangerous to life and health, contain less than 19.5% oxygen, or protection against gases and vapors with poor odor warning properties.

Air Supplying Respirators: These respirators supply air to the wearer. The air source may be contained in self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) or supplied by an air line hose connected to a compressor or cylinders of compressed air. The air must meet the Compressed Gas Association (CGA) Specifications for Grade D breathing air (G7.1 1966).

Purpose: This procedure establishes the requirements for the lockout or tagout of energy isolating devices whenever maintenance or servicing is conducted on machines or equipment at JCJ Services, LLC. It shall be used to ensure that the machine or equipment is shut down, isolated from all potentially hazardous energy sources and locked out or tagged out before employees perform any servicing or maintenance where there is the possibility of unexpected startup of the machine or equipment or release of stored energy which could cause injury.

Policy: Lock-out shall be used to assure deactivation of equipment and maintain it in a condition during maintenance or servicing of equipment or when accidental activation could create a hazardous condition. If lockout is not possible due to the configuration of the equipment, tag-out, as defined below, may be used as a substitution. This procedure applies to both in-house and contractor work.

It shall be the responsibility of JCJ Services, LLC to assure that the Lockout/Tagout Program is implemented.

Definitions

Affected Employee: An employee whose job requires him/her to operate or use a machine or equipment on which servicing or maintenance is being performed under lockout or tagout, or whose job requires him/her to work in an area in which such servicing or maintenance is being performed.

Authorized Employee: A person who locks or tags out equipment
