Know the symptoms of a deterio- rating mental attitude of certified personnel, and take immediate corrective action upon detecting such symptoms. Make sure subordinates are qualified and certified to perform the job assigned to them. Make sure their certification is current. Report those personnel who are not qualified for their assigned work to their immediate superior. Enforce orders about the maximum number of personnel pemitted in the hazard area. Permit the use of only authorized tools and handling equipment for the operations. Make sure personnel use them in the manner specified by standard operating procedures. Keep the area clean; prevent the blocking of safety exits, aisles, and accesses to fire-fighting equipment. Enforce compliance with safety regulations that concern protective clothing and equip- ment. That includes inspecting; maintaining; or replacing, if necessary, goggles, gloves, respi- rators, aprons, and other personal protective equipment. Instruct personnel on the purpose and use of protective equipment before they engage in an operation requiring its use. Before leaving at the end of a work day, make sure all conditions in the work area are safe. Inform the immediate supervisor of any area needing lights, guards, safety appliances, or repairs.
