You’re not going to work at height…
In fact you are planning to avoid it – or manage any work at height for others to be safer.
The safest place – is keeping your feet on the ground, or at least on a safe working platform, such as a fully guarded floor accessed ideally by a staircase and away from an open edge but…
Gaining some knowledge, you will be able to avoid (or minimise) exposure to height situations.
This will also help you manage the work of the team, know how to coordinate, plan and deal with the height hazard to make it as safe as possible.
Ways to avoid working at height may include observation, operating long handled tools, taking remote readings or even use of CCTV from drones.
But, if being at height can’t be avoided, we take your awareness knowledge, we then build upon it to plan the work. To ask the what if questions, to think through the task, the people involved, their training and confidence, the equipment they need…
and to think about rescue.
To reduce the risk to your people to the very minimum – for the shortest period of time.
However, planning the access and work is only part of it.
Planning the works, controlling the environment at and around the space, knowing how to access, work, and what to do in an emergency.
