An informative A2 poster that provides an introduction and overview of the NASC’s SG4:15 Preventing Falls in Scaffolding Operations guidance. This poster is intended to help site managers, contractors and supervisors ensure operatives carrying out scaffolding operations on their site are working at height safely by adhering to the measures laid out in SG4.
Employers are responsible for establishing an inspection regime for the inspection of fall protection equipment that is produced and implemented by a competent person. A Register of equipment should be compiled for use in managing the inspection regime.
More than a quarter of the accidents reported each year by NASC members to enforcing authorities are associated with manual handling – the transporting or supporting of loads by hand, or by bodily force. A well-established document that proved to still be robust and valid.
This revised guidance focuses on the management of manual handling and includes the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) Manual handling assessment charts (MAC tool) – helps assess the risks posed by lifting, carrying and team manual handling activities. The MAC tool also assists the assessor to understand, interpret and categorise the level of risk of the various known risk factors associated with these activities. It also has a numerical and colour coding score system to highlight high-risk manual handling tasks. An example of Manual Handling Risk Assessment form is included.
The legal requirement for rescue is specified in the ‘Work at Height Regulations 2005’ and require every employer in selecting work equipment for use in work at height to take account of the need for easy and timely evacuation and rescue in an emergency.
