Hazards 1. Working at height

Disturbing services in/on 5. the building (wires, gas pipes) The time of day work will be 6. carried out. (low levels of light) 7.

The individual or surrounding people.

8. 9.

Control Measures The hazards (problems) above relate to the control measures (solutions) below. Implementing these measures will reduce the risk. 1

Research and implement the regulations set by the ‘Working at height regulations (2005)’

2

Carry out a ‘working near water risk assessment’

3

Make sure that the individual or multiple people carrying out the lifting

4

Calculate how much load the wall can take before it would fail

5

Workout where the services are located In the wall (to not disturb them)

6

Only work between the regulated hours and days that are permitted

Severity

Risk Evaluation=

How often does the hazard occur? Consider the task, frequency, duration, method of work and employees involved

Likelihood

Likelihood x Severity

How serious would the consequences be? Consider the type of hazard: physical, biological, chemical, ergonomic

1 Negligible

2 Slight

3 Moderate

Negligible injury, no absence from work

Minor injury requiring first aid treatment

Low 1

LOW

1-6

Usually an acceptable level provided that the control measures are adhered to

MEDIUM

8-10

HIGH

12-25

Further controls may be needed .e.g. better equipment, strict supervision of task, additional training Task must not proceed. Reassess the risks for all hazards and introduce better control measures.
