As employers we have safety solutions in place to protect workers from injury and illness?
Slips, trips and falls, areas of risk: knee, back, leg, shoulder, forearm/wrist and face/ear. Possible safety solutions: Use the highest level of fall prevention (eg, work from scissor lifts or step platforms instead of ladders). Ensure all working areas and access ways are clean, level, well-lit and in good repair. Remove unwanted material and construction waste regularly from site so it doesn’t accumulate. Ensure construction materials, power leads, tools and equipment are handled and positioned carefully to avoid creating tripping hazards.
Our OH&S while employees Using hand tools>
Areas of risk: hand, fingers, forearm/wrist and face/ear. Possible safety solutions: Ensure power tools are suitable for the task and are lightweight, low vibration, noise restricted and fitted with clutches. Tools should be ergonomically designed so they are comfortable to use. Cable strippers should be used in preference to knives. Avoid working in front of face and always strip cable away from the body. Rotate workers through a variety of tasks so workers aren’t undertaking the same task or holding the same postures for extended periods. Work gloves should absorb impact energy, provide protection from sharp edges and be puncture resistant.
Our OH&S while employees Working at ground or floor level
Areas of risk: knees, back Possible safety solutions: Use tables, benches or stands to bring work to waist height or use tools with extension handles to avoid bending. Provide mechanical aids and wear personal protective equipment (eg, knee pads) and rotate workers through a variety of tasks.
Our OH&S while employees are lifting, pushing, pulling and handling materials
Areas of risk: back, shoulder, abdomen, hand, fingers, forearm/wrist and leg. Possible safety solutions: Have bulky materials delivered to the final work location or use mechanical load shifting devices (eg, hand trucks, cable trolleys) to move materials around site. Heavy or awkward objects/loads should be mechanically lifted and have lifting points or handles fitted. Order materials in smaller size containers (IE, 100 m cable drums instead of 500 m). Avoid manual cable pulling. Where possible, use cable rollers suitable for the size of cable, avoid pulling cables around tight bends and where necessary, mechanically pull the cable. Sharp edges of metal trays and ducts should be covered to avoid wounds/lacerations. Fit protective caps to the end of all thread droppers and exposed re bar. Use appropriate personal protective equipment (eg, gloves, long trousers, boots and safety glasses) and rotate workers through a variety of tasks.
