EXCAVATIONS
Before digging, check for services, water, gas,
electric, fibre optics. Are they live or dead?
Excavations must be supported or battered back
where necessary to prevent collapse.
Use ladders to access, do not climb support :
structures.
Prevent workers from falling into excavations more :
than 2m deep by fitting rigid barriers.
All excavations in public places, regardless of depth, /
should be provided with substantial barriers.
Protect starter bar ends so as to prevent puncture
injuries in excavations should persons fall in.
Keep soil heaps back at least 1 .Om from excavation
edge. :
Stop blocks to be fitted when tipping into excavation
to prevent vehicles from falling in.
Wear your hard hat at all times.
Do not jum across excavations, use a bridge or
walk aroun8.
Never remove or alter any supports or braces.
Do not drive vehicles or plant alongside of
excavations.
Make sure excavations do not undermine the i
footings of scaffolds or the foundations of nearby
buildings or walls.
Questions:
When should edge protection be used?
What must be checked prior to excavating?

SCAFFOLDING
Do no! remove or interfere with ties, guardrails,
bracing, toeboards and ladders.
Report scaffold defects to a supervisor.
Use the provided ladder access or stairs.
Do no! build make-shift pla!forms.
Ensure you know the loading capacity of the scaffold
you are working on and do no! exceed this under any
circumstances.
When stacking materials, always leave a
passageway of a! leas! two boards wide for the other
people to pass.
Ensure materials are stacked correctly and cannot
fall, use brick guards or netting where required.
Do no! leave tools or materials lying about on the
pla!form.
Questions:
What action would you take if you noticed a
defective scaffold?
State two things you must consider when loading
scaffolding.

PREVENTION OF FALLS
The law states, any place from which a person is liable to
fall 2m or more shall be fitted with edge protection or other
suitable barriers.
If these are not practicable or for short duration work, other
means such as fall arrest devices can be used.
Choose a safe method of getting to and from the
work area.
Ensure work latforms have double guardrail and
toeboard or otR er barriers.
Only use ladders as workplaces for short duration
work and then only if it is safe to do so.
Boatswains chairs/seats should only be used for
light, short term work where not practicable to
provide a working platform.
Use harnesses and lines to prevent falls as a last
resort.
