Work Cover - Safe Working at Heights
Work at heights Part 4.3, division 6, clauses 56 - 61 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation 2001 (Regulation) is about working at heights.
The employer must 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.
The regulation discusses the provision and maintenance of physical restraints that are capable of arresting the fall of a person from a height of more than two metres. But this is only if it is not reasonably practical to provide control measures such as scaffold, perimeter screens, fencing or handrails.
Company Policy on Safety Matters
Safety is everyone's responsibility. Everyone, from managers to roof workers, is committed to providing and maintaining a safe place of work, safe systems, the best safety equipment and safety procedures as is reasonably practical and following relevant legislation.
We hope that you too will consider our safety when we work on your roof. Many of our clients, just like us, rightly insist that we use our safety equipment such as harnesses and ropes. Yet many home and business owners have not provided any way for us to connect our safety equipment, such as providing anchor points.
Work Cover legislation requires that you provide a safe environment for us to work in – please see above "Work Cover - Safe Working at Heights".
Please ask our team to quote on providing at least a minimum safety system.
We are fully insured and certified. Please see our Insurance and Compliance Certificates above.
The Sydney GutterClean team constantly endeavour to:
Comply with statutory legislation and codes of practice relating to safety and welfare at work;
Ensure that all management and employees are adequately informed, trained and equipped to carry out their work in a safe manner;
Ensure that all employees are made aware of their duty to co-operate with this policy;
Ensure that this policy is reviewed on a regular basis and those relevant amendments are brought to the attention of all employees and contractors.
