Safe Working Procedure – Working at Heights

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this program participants will be able to demonstrate their understanding of the control measures to be followed , as detailed in the safe working procedure, when working at heights.

To begin we will consider the OAC model for managing safety

slide3

Safe Working Procedure - Working at Heights

Set your work objectives to include;

“...tasks/ activities are to be completed on time and in a manner that does not cause harm to the employees, customers, other non-employees, or the company/ organisation.”

  • Three key questions to start with are…
  • What can cause harm?
  • What are you doing about it?
  • Is it enough?

Remember the process is simple but it is NOT to be considered simplistic.

  • Scaffolding (fixed & mobile)
  • Ladders
  • Trestles
  • Roofs
  • Edge of drops (e.g. floor-openings, pits)
  • Stairwells
  • Outcomes of exposure(non-exhaustive list)
  • Physical injury

  • Control
  • Avoid working at heights, whenever possible.
  • Access Equipment
  • Using the appropriate type of access equipment and controls means…
    • Access equipment (e.g. MEWPs, ladders) and anything attached to it and used in lifting is to be of adequate strength and stability for each load, and
    • is to be designed and erected in a way that prevents the user from being crushed, trapped, struck or falling from the carrier.

  • Control - Access Equipment (cont’d)
  • Additional fall arrest equipment is to be available when the risk of falling from the carrier is not eliminated;
    • by the design or
    • by the erection of the access equipment.
  • Ensure training and fitness requirements are met.
  • Young people must work under close supervision even after full training has been provided.

Remember: Avoid working at heights, if possible.

Controlling the Hazard
