Safe Places of Work
Yes Can everyone on the project reach their place of work safely, e.g. are roads, gangways, passenger hoists, staircases, ladders and scaffolds in good condition? Are there guard rails or equivalent protection to stop falls from open edges on scaffolds, mobile elevating work platforms, buildings, gangways, excavations, etc? Are all holes and openings securely guard railed, provided with an equivalent standard of edge protection or provided with fixed, clearly marked covers to prevent falls? Are the working structures stable, adequately braced and not overloaded? Are all working areas and walkways level and free from trip hazards, obstructions such as stored material and waste? Is the site tidy, and are materials stored safely? Have proper arrangements for collecting and disposing of waste materials been made? Is the work area and interior adequately lit?
