  • Health and safety risks arising from our work activities

The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1997 places a responsibility on the Company to provide a comprehensive system of health and safety „risk assessments‟ to be carried out by competent person(s) in every workplace. Risk assessments should not only provide protection for employees, but should extend to cover other third parties who may be visiting the workplace or otherwise affected by the Company’s business: this may include, for example, visitors, contractors, and cleaners.

The purpose of risk assessment is to enable the Company to identify risks, evaluate the degree of potential harm, and take appropriate measures to control that risk. By doing this the Company will not only comply with statutory provisions, but also creates a safe working environment for employees and others.

Risk Assessments cover the building, facilities, plant tools and equipment, systems of work, and operations generally.

  •  Risks assessments will be undertaken by a competent person or Khosro Montazeri on all our sites. Table 1 shows an example of the risk assessment record sheet that is used.
  •  The findings of the risk assessments will be reported to Khosro Montazeri
  •  Action required to remove/control risks will be approved by Khosro Montazeri who will also be responsible for ensuring the action required is implemented.
  •  Khosro Montazeri or a competent person will check that the implemented actions have removed/ reduced the risks.
  •  Assessments will be reviewed every 6 months or when the work activity changes, whichever is soonest.

 

Pre start site safety briefings will take place on each contract and site induction will include details of all risk assessments and specific site safety issues and method actions that have been taken to remove or reduce the risks.

  • Working at height

When planning for work at height, CSI Ltd consider where the work will be done, if the job allows then it will be any existing structure that allows safe access and provides a safe working place. Where it is not possible to work safely from the existing structure, an extra working platform will be needed. When selecting a safe system of work at heights, all the risks will be considered before one method is selected. Before any work at height, CSI Ltd will check that there is adequate clearance for equipment, for example, overhead power lines, it is essential to consider what risks there may be in erecting the access equipment as well as using it. The majority of any work undertaken at height by LRM Electric can generally be completed with the use of ladders.

  • Rules to prevent falls

Make sure the working platform is secure. Check that it:

  • Will support the weight of people, materials and equipment likely to be used or temporary store on it;
  • Is stable and will not overturn.
  • Provides adequate working space; and
  • Is footed on stable ground or on a stable support or structure.
  • If working from scaffold, ensure there are guardrails, barriers etc at open edges.

 

  • Summary of instructions given to our employees before they work at height

 

  • Check there is a safe method of getting to and from the work area.
  • Decide what particular equipment will be suitable for the job and the conditions on site.
  • Make sure work platforms and any edges from which people are likely to fall have guardrails and toe boards or other barriers.
  • If working from scaffolding, check that the equipment is in good condition and make sure that whoever puts the equipment together is trained and knows what they are doing.
  • Make sure those who use the equipment are supervised so that they use it properly.
  • Check any equipment provided by another company is safe on site before using it.
  • Find out who to tell if any defects need to be remedied or modifications need to be made

 

  • Instructions and safety measures for our employees to work on Tower scaffolds

 

  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for erection, use and dismantling.
  • The tower must be vertical and the legs should rest properly on firm, level ground.
  • Lock any wheels and outriggers - base plates provide greater stability if the tower does not have to be moved.
  • Provide a safe way to get to and from the work platform, for example, internal ladders. Climbing up the outside of the tower may pull it over.
  • Mount edge protection on tower scaffolds (guard rails and toe boards).
  • Provide guard rails and toe boards on any intermediate platforms which are also being used as working platforms or for storing materials.
  • Tie the tower rigidly to the structure it is serving or provide other additional support if:

 

  • 1.The tower is sheeted;
  • 2.It is likely to be exposed to strong winds;
  • 3.Heavy materials are lifted up the outside of the tower; or
  • 4.The tower base is too small to ensure stability for the height of the platform

 If ties are needed, check that they are put in place as required when the scaffold is erected. Make sure they are checked from time to time and that necessary ties are kept in place when the scaffold is dismantled.

  • Do not:

 

  • 1.Use a ladder footed on the platform or apply other loads which could tilt the tower;
  • 2.Overload the working platform;
  • 3.Fix ties to the centres of thin walled aluminium tubes;
  • 4.Move the tower by applying the necessary force at the platform level; or
  • 5.Climb up the outside of the tower to reach the platform.

 

  • Moving a mobile tower

 

  • Check that there are no power lines or overhead obstructions in the way.
  • Check that there are no holes or dips in the ground.
  • Do not allow people or materials to remain on it as towers tip over very easily when being moved.

 

  • Use of Ladders

Remember:

  • Ladders should always be secured if possible.
  • Ensure that you always have three points of contact, i.e. two legs and a hand.
  • You should never have to lean sideways when up a ladder.
  • Heavy or bulky loads should not be carried up or down ladders
  • DO NOT attempt to repair ladders.

 

  • Safety measures and instruction for our employees and sub-contractors;

 

  • 1.You check the condition of the ladder
  • 2.The work only requires one hand to be used;
  • 3.The work can be reached without stretching;
  • 4.The ladder can be fixed to prevent slipping; and a good handhold is available.
  • 5.You are able to reach the work from a position 1 m below the top of the ladder.
  • 6.Carry light tools in a shoulder bag or holster so that both hands are free for climbing.
  • 7.The ladder is secure.

 

 

 

  • Consultation with employees

Consultation with employees is provided by Khosro Montazeri  who will ensure the following actions are taken particularly with regard to the use of contractors and sub-contractors.

CSI Ltd has a legal Health and Safety responsibility to protect all persons, employees and contractors who come into contact with their activities. In order to ensure this CSI Ltd requires all sub-contractors working on behalf of CSI Ltd, to be responsible for themselves, their employees and sub-contractors employed by them for: -

  • Complying with all regulatory requirements;
  • Complying with CSI Ltd health, safety, fire, security and site instructions, rules and procedures;
  • Ensuring all equipment brought onto site is safe and fit for purpose and used in accordance with legal requirements;
  • If any dangerous equipment or substance etc. is to be used in an area where CSI Ltd employees are working or where visitors or members of the public may be affected, then CSI Ltd must be informed of the hazard and any control measures to be implemented, prior to the work starting;
  • All accidents, incidents and dangerous occurrences must immediately be reported to the senior CSI Ltd representative on site;

 

  • In addition sub-contractors must supply:

 

  • Details of health and safety training provided for operatives;
  • Names and details of persons responsible for H&S on site;

 

  • CSI Ltd will also ensure that:

 

  • Where contractors and sub-contractors are employed by or on behalf of the Company, the Contracts Manager or responsible person must ensure that every contract awarded contains within its provisions that contractors and subcontractors be covered by the appropriate insurance and shall adopt safe systems of work.

 

  • Any sub-contractors used to undertake works i.e. demolition, asbestos removals, will be required to provide their health and safety policies, risk assessments and method statements.

 

  •     The Contracts Manager will ensure that the Contractor selected to do the job irrespective of price is competent to undertake the works in a safe manner and without risks to others.

 

  • Where a contractor or subcontractor fails to comply with the requirements of the contract with regards to health and safety matters this will be brought to the attention of the contractor by the Contracts Manager

 

  • Any contractor or subcontractor, who repeatedly fails to meet acceptable health and safety standards while carrying out work on behalf of this Company, will find themselves excluded from tendering for Company works in the future. Managers and responsible persons will take the required action where it is necessary.

 

 

  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

There are some activities that require the use of PPE under the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations (1992), these state that employers must provide personal protective equipment where employees cannot be protected by other means more effective. This provision also requires that correct specification, information, instruction and training to ensure the correct use, storage and handling be incorporated, plus a mechanism for reporting any defects.

The equipment is issued by the Company, who ensure that disposable items are disposed of in accord with Environmental Regulations, and also that re-usable items are laundered and clean items are provided on a regular basis. All affected employees are trained in the correct use, storage and handling of PPE and are required to use the equipment provided, in the manner for which it is designated.

All re-usable items must be maintained in good order, and any damaged items either repaired or replaced as soon as soon as practicable.

 

 

  • Inspection and PAT Testing

Portable and transportable equipment i.e. that connected to the supply by a plug and cord has special risks over and above those of normal electrical equipment. These risks need to be properly controlled.

The special hazards include the equipment being hand held, the equipment being moved and thus prone to wear and damage, the possibility of its use in an area on a different power supply phase from the equipment, its use in inappropriate environments, the use of unauthorised equipment, its unavailability for maintenance, inappropriate use of extension leads and improper maintenance.

  • 1.The control measures for portable electrical equipment include proper selection and use of equipment, proper maintenance, proper training for users, having adequate policies and procedures covering the use of portable electrical equipment.
  • 2.Portable electrical equipment must be selected to ensure its suitability for the intended use. It must be robust enough for the level of use to which it is to be subject, and be able to be suitably maintained to keep it safe to use
  • 3.To ensure that the equipment remains safe for use it should be subject to a system of checks, inspections, and testing, at a frequency suitable for the environment in which it is used and for the level of use to which it is subject. These include simple checks by the users, more in-depth visual inspections by competent people less frequently, and tests designed to indicate faults that could not be seen using appropriate test equipment, even less frequently.
  • 4.Users of this equipment need to be taught the dangers of electricity, their responsibilities, correct usage of the equipment, the user checks that they should do and an indication of their limitations and what they must not do.
  • 5.It is important for an organisation to have clear policies and procedures covering the use, disposal, inspection and maintenance of portable electrical equipment.

 

The following procedure for inspection and testing may be used as a guide for managers in the effective control of the risks arising from portable electrical equipment:

1. Establish a system of maintenance for portable (and transportable) electrical equipment

2. Compile a register of equipment to be maintained, inspected and tested. Identify the portable equipment that needs to be maintained and obtain information on where it is used and how

3. Decide what to do about 'unauthorised' equipment brought in by employees

4. Provide straightforward training and information for all equipment users to help them carry out user checks

5. Set up a formal visual inspection system and provide training for employees in carrying out inspections

6. Provide brief written guidance relating to the visual inspection, what to look for and procedures to follow when faults are found (and when unauthorised equipment is used)

7. Decide on the appropriate frequency for formal visual inspection

 

8. Employ, contract or train a suitably qualified person to test equipment that is either suspected of being defective, has been repaired or modified, or is due for a combined inspection test (or has never had one at the start of a maintenance regime)

9. Ensure that the person has sufficient knowledge, training and experience as well as access to further information where necessary

10. Decide on appropriate frequency for testing where this is necessary

11. Items that fail safety tests should be labelled as 'faulty' and immediately withdrawn from service for repair. Different colour labels should be used to indicate whether equipment is suitable for use or is unsafe

12. Review records of test results and use these to check whether tests need to be carried out less or more frequently

13. Monitor all the arrangements and ensure that follow-up action is carried out, including a review of frequency of formal visual inspection
