Q3 2024Safe work at height andpreventing dropped objects

Safe work in scaffolding

Film: Safe work in scaffolding

To work safely in scaffolding, we must familiarise ourselves with both the scaffolding and the surrounding area. In this film, we will take a closer look at how to identify and manage potential hazards and error traps before and during work in scaffolding.

Questions for reflection

Practical task: Observation in the field

The purpose of this task is to use observation more actively in our daily work to help ensure that we work safely at height and that we identify potential dropped objects.

1. Use the discussions from your previous reflection as a framework for carrying out the task.
2. Use the one-pager associated with this learning package as a tool in planning and executing the task.
3. Observations should be reported through local systems and available solutions (use observation cards, take pictures, provide good descriptions). You can tag the observation with “Always Safe Q3 2024”.
