ALL AREAS ON THIS PROJECT

WHAT ARE THE MAJOR HAZARDS ASSOCIATED WITH POOR HOUSEKEEPING? Slip, trip, falls Fire & Explosion Occupational Health Hazards Environmental Incident

WHAT ARE THE TYPICAL CONTROL MEASURES?

CONTROL MEASURES? SLIPS, TRIPS, FALLS

Effective Cable & Hose Mgmt


Remove unwanted materials at source Control of Spillages Risk Assessment for inclement weather conditions Engage effective control measures to reduce the risk of falling objects whilst working at height (e.g. Tool belt/Boxes)

CONTROL MEASURES? FIRE & EXPLOSION Remove any unwanted flammable or combustible materials at source. Adequate storage of chemicals with hazardous properties

Assess other activities as they may have an impact (e.g. welding


on a pipe rack from grating above combustible materials) Contain sparks & hot work activities (e.g. use of fire blankets)

CONTROL MEASURES? OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH HAZARDS

Remove airborne contaminants at source (e.g. remove / control


shot blast) Control & maintain toilet facilities in a clean state of repair to reduce the risk of adverse health effects & disease Avoid taking food into construction areas as food will attract

rodents which brings additional hazards such as:


Venoms from snake or scorpion

CONTROL MEASURES? ENVIRONMENTAL

Control waste disposal by segregation (e.g. hazardous waste


should be segregated from general waste) Contain spillage by pre planning (e.g. bunding) and minor spillage programs to mitigate hazards posed by slippery surfaces. Consider the possibility of adverse weather conditions (e.g. sand

on steps and scaffold platforms may be slippery)

WHAT ELSE CAN WE DO? Keep walkways and emergency exits free from obstruction. Assess each area to ensure that waste receptacles are available for rubbish? Designate specific areas for unwanted materials Provide satisfactory schedules to remove unwanted materials

rubbish
Enforce the rules for suitable & sufficient welfare facilities A Proactive Approach clean as you go

WHAT ARE THE ADVERSE EFFECTS OF A POOR HOUSKEPING?

POOR HOUSEKEEPING

POOR CABLE MANAGEMENT CAN LEAD TO UNNESESSARY TRIP HAZARDS WHICH MAY RESULT IN INJURY

POOR HOUSEKEEPING IMPACTS SAFETY?

If an employee has to work in and around messy conditions their ability to perform timely

results to a task is
compromised leading to schedule delays

It is a fact that maintaining a clean worksite will


1. INCREASE PRODUCTION AND PROGRESS. 2. PROVIDE A SAFE PLACE TO WORK. 3. PRODUCE A QUALITY PRODUCTION.

REMEMBER

HOUSEKEEPING IS EVERYONES RESPONSIBILITY!
