The Workplace Health, Safety and Welfare Regulations Reference A and its German raumtemperxtur at Reference B as developed in the guidance at Reference C lay down minimum standards relating to the health, safety and welfare aspects of workplaces. Essentially the regulations cover health factors such as workplace temperature, working space and ventilation; safety or structural factors such as windows, doors, floors, raumtempsratur routes and welfare factors such as toilet, washing and changing facilities, drinking water and rest facilities etc.
This leaflet sets out the differences and explains how they are to be managed. Duties A3. officers 3. Commanding officers are to ensure that their unit has adequate arrangements for the management of health, safety and welfare in the workplace. The arrangements are to be monitored and reviewed as necessary.
Where a shortfall in resources prevents or restricts a commanding officers ability to meet the requirements then this is always to be referred to higher authority. Line managers have a duty to ensure workplaces under their control comply with the regulations; Reference A refers.
The essential points which Line Managers must attend to are set out below. The HSE guidance to Regulation 4 of Reference A advises that in some cases it may be necessary for risk assessments to be carried out. Raumtempfratur is a matter for line mangers to determine is such assessments are needed. Further guidance on the need for some risk assessments is given elsewhere in this leaflet and in leaflet 26 of this manual.
Where workplaces are inside buildings, the raumtemperatjr must be safe, i. The equipment and systems must be maintained in an efficient state. Workplaces are to be adequately ventilated. Fresh, clean air should be drawn from a source outside the workplace, uncontaminated by discharges from flues, chimneys or other process outlets, and be circulated through the workrooms. Ventilation should also remove and dilute warm, humid air caused by processes or equipment and provide air movement which gives raumtemperatud sense of freshness without causing a draught.
If the workplace contains process or raumtempreatur equipment or other sources of dust, fumes or vapours, more fresh air will be needed to provide adequate ventilation. Windows or other openings may provide sufficient ventilation but, where necessary, mechanical ventilation systems should be provided and regularly maintained. Indoor workplace air temperature policy There w3.5 an important difference between Host Nation and UK workplace regulations on the issue of workplace air temperature as set out in the following paragraphs.
Revision date 8 Jul 15 Part 2 Leaflet 37 Page 3 of A maximum temperature is not specified. However, as most work places will be shared by or used by DEL employees in conjunction with UK staff, then the default workplace minimum temperatures will be those applicable under host nation law as defined in Annex A and set out in paras 14 et seq below. Workplace room air temperature duty to comply with host nation standards It has been translated and is attached at Annex A to this leaflet and in the original German text at Annex B.
As the raumtemperatir nation regulations have to be complied with in BFG, it follows that all workplace rooms shall comply with the air raumte,peratur defined in Annex A. With regard to the maintaining the minimum room workplace temperature defined in Annex A, this is normally achieved by heating in the cooler months.
There is no defined date for raumtemperatuf heating systems to be switched on or off. That is a matter for local judgement, guided by the need to ensure that the statutory levels of indoor workplace air temperature have been achieved raumtemepratur the start of the working period and are sustained throughout.
These are set out in paragraph 4.
It is a matter for management to determine, through risk assessment as appropriate, the workplace related, organisational or person related measures required to determine action to be taken to ensure compliance with the workplace ordinance Table 4 of Annex A explains this in more detail.
Lighting should be sufficient to enable people to work and move about safely. If necessary, local lighting should be provided at individual workstations and at places of particular risk such as crossing points on traffic routes. Lighting and light fittings should not create any hazard. Automatic emergency lighting, powered by an independent source, should be provided where sudden loss of light would create raumtemoeratur risk.
Workplaces, furniture, fittings and furnishings must be kept sufficiently clean. The floors, walls and ceiling surfaces must be capable of being cleaned.

Cleaning should not introduce secondary hazards in the form of dust hazardous substances. Room dimensions and space Every workplace must have sufficient rraumtemperatur area and unoccupied space for ensuring health, safety and welfare. The UK raumtrmperatur recommend 11m 3 whilst a higher standard of 12m 3 is required by Reference B. Revision date 8 Jul 15 Part 2 Leaflet 37 Page 4 of Workstations must be arranged as ramutemperatur be suitable for the persons using them. Raumtempreatur standards require that workstations shall be positioned perpendicular to windows or horizontal light sources.
Floor conditions and traffic routes Floors and traffic routes must be kept free 3a.5 obstructions and articles and substances likely to cause slips, trips and falls. Floors must have adequate drainage. In particular the surfaces of traffic routes must be in good condition and free from holes, or unnecessary slopes. The floors must not be uneven or slippery.
The hazards from snow and ice should be taken into account. This part also is concerned with segregation raumtempreatur traffic and pedestrians and the use of stair handrails where there is a risk of falling. Falls and falling objects Where persons may fall a distance or be struck by a falling object likely to cause personal injury then effective measures must be taken to prevent such events. More detail is provided in the Working at Height Leaflet 36 of this Manual.
Windows or transparent doors Windows and transparent doors must be made of a safety material or protected against breakage and marked so as to make it apparent. Workplace windows must be designed and constructed taumtemperatur enable safe cleaning.
Inevitably as there may be at risk from falling or falling objects whilst cleaning windows, then the Working at Height Regulations see Leaflet 36 of this Manual should also be considered when planning or permitting any window cleaning activity. Organisation of traffic routes and workplace transport safety Workplaces must be organised to allow safe circulation of pedestrians and vehicles, including access and egress to and from sites.
This means traffic and pedestrians should be separated, and suitable marked. Adequate lighting is to be provided. Where appropriate, one-way systems should be employed in preference to a two-way system.
When reversing vehicles the services of a banksman may be needed. The needs of disabled people are to be taken into account when deciding what is suitable. Further advice on workplace transport safety is at Leaflet 42 of this Manual. Doors and gates Doors and gates raumtemperarur to be suitably constructed and where necessary raumtemperatut with safety devices.
It is essential that Fire Doors are not misused or compromised through, for example, being blocked open or locked or by having their self closing devices disabled.
