This is the pocket version of the management guide.
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. Hence date changes only in the 2015 update.
The Handover Certificate will advise the client that at the time of the handover, the scaffold has been built to the required specification, it was suitable for the duty intended, it complies with the requirements of the Statutory Regulations, was structurally sound and in a safe condition for use. (Price is £4.80 includes VAT). Please note, as these certificates are available to NASC members only to purchase them please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Health surveillance is the application of systematic, regular and appropriate procedures to detect early signs of work related ill health in employees who are exposed to certain health risks. An important area for consideration in managing well and leading to consideration of behavioural safety.
This guidance outlines how employers should complete a COSHH assessment. As employers you must carry out an assessment and identify any control measures which should be implemented. Remember you are assessing the activity being carried out using the substance and not just the substance alone!
Initially there is no structure in place against which the scaffold can be tied. The scaffold may surround a structure, but it is still vital that measures to ensure stability are incorporated. Accordingly the initial stability of the scaffold structure must be achieved by means other than ties. Design input is still critical.
