The Personal PreStart has two purposes:

To ensure everyone working on site considers the hazards in their work environment, assess their potential risk, and take steps to control the hazards.

6.2. Using the Personal PreStart

Obtain a Personal PreStart Notebook.

To do a Personal PreStart there are four questions to ask yourself:

1. Am I clear on what the job involves?

If the answer is yes, then you ask yourself Question 2. If the answer is no, then the person is required to speak to their Nyrstar Representative and not start the job until you can answer yes to the question.

2. Does the job involve any Defined Hazardous Work?

If the answer is yes, then you must ensure that there is either a JSEA or Standard Procedure covering the job as well as a WPCC for the job. If you dont have these documents, you must not start the job.

If you are unsure of the answer, or you are not clear of what is meant by the term Defined Hazardous Work (DHW), then you must speak to your Nyrstar Representative and not start the job until you can answer the question. (The list of DHW is listed in your Personal PreStart Notebook.)

You must then ask yourself the next question:

3. Are there any hazards present today not covered by the JSEA or standard procedure, or if there is no JSEA or standard procedure for the job, are there any hazards present today?

If the answer is yes to either part of this question, or youre unsure as to the answer, you must answer question 4. If you are sure the answer is no, then you should carefully proceed with the job.

4. If there are Hazards, is the Residual Risk low?

Before answering question 4, you must first identify the potential hazards associated with the job. You are encouraged to review the hazard identification table in your Personal PreStart Notebook and use the Personal PreStart Notebook to list the hazards, the potential consequences of hazard, and how youll control the hazard. For further guidance refer to Appendix 10.1 and speak to your Nyrstar Representative.
