Height Safety – Access Systems
Work being Done On Your Site for More than 2 Metres High???
*****IMPORTANT: It’s the Law – You Need Fall Protection*****
Australian Regulation discusses provision and maintenance of physical restraints that are capable of arresting the fall of a person from a height of more than two metres. HOWEVER, New South Wales Regulations have changed in 2012, requiring a business obligation to maintain safety from any height!
But this is only if it is not reasonably practical to provide control measures such as scaffold, perimeter screens, fencing or handrails.
What is a Height Access System???
A Height Access System is system that allows safe access to Rooftops, Facilities – which allows work to be carried out on air conditioners, roofs, plant and equipment.
When is an Access System Needed?
An Access Systems is Needed when a Worker/Contractor needs to gain access to facilities’ Rooftops, Plant ad Equipment.
As the increase awareness of Health and Safety in the workplace takes effect, it is a legislative requirement under the OH&S Regulations Part 4.3, Division 6, clauses 56-61, for employers to ensure that all risks associated with falls from a height are controlled.
To control risks, the employer must provide and maintain the following measures:
- Stable and securely fenced work platform or, if this is not reasonably practicable
- Secure perimeter screens, fencing, handrails or other physical barriers capable of preventing falls or, if this is not reasonably practicable;
- Other forms of physical restraint that are capable of arresting a fall from a height of more than two metres or, if this is not reasonably practicable;
- Provision of a safe means of movement between different levels at the place of work.
