Visitor Orientation
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
1
At the Lafarge cement plant in Ravena, our goal is to ensure your visit is
enjoyable, rewarding, and most importantly, safe.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
2
Our activities are governed not only by our corporate standards, but also by
MSHA (Mining Safety and Health Administration) and various other legislation.
Regular inspections by
MSHA officers ensure we
are continually meeting
the regulated standards.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
3
While we have programs in place to help ensure the safety of our workers,
each employee, contractor or visitor is also responsible for their safety and the
safety of others. This means:
•
No horseplay on site.
•
Arriving at the site mentally and physically able:
- If you are taking prescribed medication that may affect your
performance, notify your Lafarge contact.
•
Reporting unsafe acts or conditions.
•
Drugs, alcohol, and firearms are not permitted on site.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.

Before you enter the plant, you must sign in at the main building. We need to
know who is in the plant in case of emergency or in case safety conditions
change. If you will be onsite on off hours, report to the central control room after
signing.
Also remember to sign out
when you leave.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
5
If you are going to enter the quarry or the wharf, you are also required to sign in
at those areas.

We have a well-equipped first aid station and an ERT (Emergency Response
Team) is on site at all times:
•
The first aid station is located in the main building.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
7
If you require first aid, go to the first aid station (if you are able) and contact the
control room.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
8
As part of our overall safety policy, we have procedures in place for
emergencies such as fire:
•
•
Fire extinguishers and fire pulls are located throughout the site for use in
fighting small fires.
If a fire cannot be safely extinguished, leave the area and notify your
contact or control room immediately.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
9
If a plant evacuation is required, the evacuation alarm will sound continuously.
When you hear the alarm, go quickly to the evacuation assembly point for the
area you are in.
Stay at the assembly point until
directed elsewhere by your contact.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
10
If you are working in the Feedend Building, an alarm may sound signalling an
evacuation:
•
Notify your Lafarge contact
or the control room prior to
re-entry.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
11
Evacuation plans and designated
assembly points are posted in each area
of the site. Check the plan in your area to
make sure you know the evacuation
procedure, route and assembly point.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
12
To help ensure your safety at Lafarge, you are required to wear personal
protective equipment, or PPE. Items required at all times include:
•
•
•
Steel-toed safety boots
(6" min. height)
Hard hat
Safety glasses with side shields
Check for requirements in all areas.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
13
High visibility apparel must be worn in all areas of the plant. The high
visibility apparel (vest, shirt or jacket) must be the last outer garment
worn on the body.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
14
Hearing protection (ear plugs or ear muffs) is required in many areas
of the site. These areas are clearly marked.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
15
In some areas, dual hearing protection is recommended due to the
high noise level (above 100 decibels). In these areas, ear plugs and
ear muffs are required.
Areas requiring double hearing
protection will be identified with signs.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
16
Because you may be exposed to dusty conditions in almost any area of
the plant, always carry respiratory protection and wear it when
appropriate:
•
Dust masks are easy to use
and provide effective protection
against dust.
Long-term exposure to dust,
without protective equipment
such as a dust mask, can cause
health problems.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
17
If you will be entering a barge, or within 6' (1.8 m) of the water, a life jacket is
mandatory.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
18
While we will supply the necessary PPE (except safety boots) and ensure
you know how to use it correctly, it is your responsibility to wear it when
required:
•
Always ask your contact to
clarify anything you don’t
understand about the use of
PPE — do not guess.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
19
Vehicle traffic is a hazard throughout the site. Your high-visibility apparel will
help increase your visibility, but due to the design of much of the mobile
equipment, there are blind spots.
Make eye contact with mobile equipment
operators and ensure they know your
position and intended travel route.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
20
The “driving circle” near the main office parking lot is an especially high traffic
area. Driving around the circle must be done counterclockwise only.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
21
Walkways are marked as appropriate. Use them or the sidewalks whenever
possible.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
22
Observe our speed limits in all areas of the site:
•
15 mph in plant areas.
25 mph on quarry and wharf access roads.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
23
In all areas of the site, heavy equipment has the right-of-way.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
24
Seat belt use is mandatory while operating any mobile equipment or
vehicle on site.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
25
Observe the railroad crossings at north and south entrances. This is a main line
and train traffic will occur at any time.
When entering the site and a train is
crossing, do not back out onto Route 9W.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
26
The area around the Stamler feeder in the secondary area can be very
dangerous due to falling rocks from the quarry belts:
•
If you need to enter the area
around the Stamler, contact
the control room.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
27
All moving equipment and machinery on site is guarded:
•
•
Do not operate equipment if
guards are missing or removed.
If you need to remove a guard for
your task, ensure you replace it
when you are finished.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
28
Compressed air is under extreme pressure. If it penetrates your body as a
bubble of air, the result could be fatal:
•
Never use compressed air
to blow off your clothing or
point it at anyone else.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
29
Safe blow-down stations are located throughout the site:
•
Use these stations to blow off your clothing.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
30
Air cannons, used to prevent buildups and improve the flow of the material,
are located throughout the plant. Areas where they are used will be identified
by signs:
•
The cannons will fire randomly — be aware of your surroundings in these
areas.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
31
Some areas of the plant contain high temperatures and there is a potential risk
for heat stress when in them:
•
•
•
Make sure you stay hydrated — drink
plenty of the water provided.
If you notice any symptoms of heat
stress — dizziness, nausea, profuse
sweating, rapid pulse — leave the area
and notify your supervisor.
Always follow the “buddy system” when
in high temperature areas.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
32
Hazards within a construction site, or in any area of the plant, must be
barricaded:
•
•
Red tape — no access unless
authorized.
Yellow tape — use caution and
check surrounding area (up/down,
side to side) before entering.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
33
Lock out, tag out, try out, is an important element of our safety program.
Any work is required on or near any equipment that could move or be
caused to move, all energy sources need to be isolated, locked out
and tested . Energy sources include:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Electricity
Hydraulics
Compressed air
Gravity
Radiation
Liquid or gas flow
Lock Out / Tag Out / Try Out
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
Contractor locks must have
the contractor’s name, phone
number, and company name
clearly shown on the lock.
34
If a task involves working at height, a Fall Hazard Risk Assessment is
done and a Working at Height Permit is completed by Lafarge.
The risk of falling will be eliminated or
reduced using the Hierarchy of
Controls in the following order:
• Elimination
• Isolation
• Engineering
• Administrative and PPE
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
35
If you will be performing any work, your Lafarge contact will give you a Field
Level Risk Assessment Form to complete before you commence.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
36
Some areas on the site are designated as enclosed or confined spaces.
An enclosed or confined space is defined as an area where there is limited
access, a danger of entrapment, or a possibility of a dangerous
atmosphere:
•
Very specific training,
procedures and permits are
required before entry to a
confined space is permitted.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
37
Conveyors are used throughout the site to transport materials. Conveyors
present several hazards and anyone working on a conveyor must be properly
trained. If you will be near conveyors, follow basic safe practices:
•
•
•
Report any missing or damaged guards immediately.
Stay clear of nip or pinch points where you could get entangled or pulled
in.
Always cross conveyors at designated crossing points – do not walk on or
under a conveyor.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
38
We also use various types of piles for storage of raw and processed materials.
These piles – stockpiles and surge piles – are inherently unstable and present
several hazards.
•
•
•
•
Stockpiles are man-made and usually built in a conical or linear shape.
Surge piles are also man-made and are built directly over a powered
feeder or draw hole.
Pedestrian access is either prohibited or very limited on a stockpile or
surge pile.
Keep a safe distance of 10 m (33 ft) from the base of a stockpile or surge
pile.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
39
Hazcom is a hazard communication program in effect across the United
States. Anyone working at our site must be trained in HAZCOM.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
40
MSDS for all controlled products used at the plant are available online. Check
for the yellow posters posted throughout the site for instructions on how to
access them:
•
Hard copies of MSDS are also available.
Always check for precautionary information,
PPE requirements, etc. before using or
coming in contact with a controlled product.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
41
We also take the following measures with respect to homeland security:
•
Unauthorized entry to the site is discouraged and entry is monitored.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
42
If you will be entering the quarry, once you sign in you will be given further
information regarding safe procedures to follow:
•
•
The Quarry Coordinator (or
designate) will outline the
requirements and provide forms for
your review and signature.
Don’t forget to sign out when you
leave.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
43
The 100-Ton haul trucks have
right-of-way on the haul roads.
Due to the size of the trucks, the driver may
not see a person or vehicle in their path,
especially to the rear of the machine.
Always follow the posted speed limit of
25 mph on the haul and entrance roads:
•
Traffic pattern in the quarry is
right-hand drive.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
44
The current U.S. Coast Guard Maritime Security (MARSEC) level is posted at
the entry to the wharf.
MARSEC levels are set to reflect the prevailing threat environment to the
marine elements of the national transportation system including ports, vessels
and facilities located on waters subject to US jurisdiction.

With our close proximity to the Hudson River, we must follow sensitive area
protection procedures:
•
Do not drain water in or out of wetlands and other environmentally sensitive
areas, and do not place materials into wetlands.
•
Do not refuel equipment within 50' of a water body, wetland or storm drain.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.

Everyone on site shares the same
environmental responsibilities as
Ravena personnel. They must show
due diligence with regards to
environmental regulation at all times.
They must also know and follow all
environmental regulations and
procedures.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
48
One of the biggest potential impacts on the environment is a spill or leak:
•
If something has spilled, every
attempt must be made to contain it
and prevent it from entering our
drains or atmosphere.
•
Oil spills must be contained and
picked up within 2 hours.
•
Any spill must be reported to the
control room.
Eclipse Training Solutions Ltd.
49
Everyone on site shares responsibilities with respect to general site
maintenance:
•
•
•
•
Pick up and remove your own trash.
Prevent and report all fires — no open burning.
Prevent erosion during earth work.
Minimize vehicular dust.
