Paper making and converting machines have been designed and engineered to be as safe as possible, but there are still many hazards present in facilities where this type of equipment is operated. The use of machine guarding, personal protective equipment, and approved safety procedures can help minimize the risk associated with these dangers. However, it is also important for workers to understand equipment-specific hazards so that they appreciate the importance of safe behaviors. This course provides a brief overview of general hazards and safety practices for paper making and paper converting facilities, and then describes some specific equipment hazards.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Identify general hazards and safety practices
  • List hazardous machine motions
  • List safety hazards associated with mobile equipment, cranes and hoists, paper machine showers, slitters, headboxes, Yankee dryers, doctor blades, and fabrics

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What are some hazards that are specific to tissue machine?
Tissue machine facilities have hazards from mobile equipment, cranes/hoists, showers, slitters, headboxes, Yankee dryers, doctor blades, and tissue machine fabrics.

What are some general safe work practices?
Make sure you are properly trained and familiar with the movement and hazards of a machine. Always follow lockout/tagout procedures when performing maintenance. Don't be afraid to ask if you have a safety question.

What are some safe work practices for working around Yankee dryers?
Yankee dryers operate at high temperature and pressure. To prevent stresses that can cause the Yankee to explode never spray water on a hot Yankee dryer and never hit the dryer with any tool. Also, there are strict procedures for warm-up and cool-down of the dryer.

What are some safe work practices for handling doctor blades?
Tissue machine doctor blades are very sharp and flexible. Always wear the proper protective gloves and handle blades carefully. Keep the area clear when changing blades.

What are some safe work practices for working around tissue machine fabrics?
Moving fabrics are capable of burning, cutting, and pulling you into the machine. Keep a safe distance from moving fabrics. Always follow procedures to change fabrics because they are heavy and can be difficult to handle.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Paper machines are powerful, fast-moving, and very dangerous. To be safe when working around machines, you should understand some of the basic machine movements. Rotating motion, like that of rolls, drive shafts, and stock tank agitators. Reciprocating motion, including the back and forth or up and down movements of scanners, levers, drive pistons, and cylinders. And linear motion, or continuous straight line movement, including fabric and conveyor belt runs. If a machine or component can move, it can pose a hazard. Before you approach a moving machine, familiarize yourself with its range of movements and its hazards. In addition, stored energy could also be present. So, a good understanding of the equipment and process is critical to keeping yourself and others safe.

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
