Procedure Operating for Mobile Elevated Platforms – Man Lifts

An aerial work platform (AWP), also known as an aerial device, elevating work platform (EWP), or mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) is a mechanical device used to provide temporary access for people or equipment to inaccessible areas, usually at height. There are distinct types of mechanized access platforms and the individual types may also be known as a "cherry picker" or a "scissor lift".

They are generally used for temporary, flexible access purposes such as maintenance and construction work or by firefighters for emergency access, which distinguishes them from permanent access equipment such as elevators.

Health and Safety In Roof Work

Working on roofs is a high-risk activity because it involves working at height. Roofers make up nearly a quarter of all workers killed in falls from height at work. Falls through fragile materials, such as roof lights and asbestos cement roofing sheets, account for more of these deaths than any other single cause. 

Not all those who are killed while working on roofs are trained roofers: many people accessing roofs are maintenance workers. There are also many serious injuries, often resulting in permanent disabilities.

WORKING ALONE IN SAFETY - Controlling the risks of solitary work

Is it legal to work alone and is it safe? The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is frequently asked these questions. There is no single answer; it will depend on the findings of risk assessment but often the answer will be yes. 

Employers have responsibilities for the health, safety and welfare at work of their employees and the health and safety of those affected by the work, eg visitors, such as contractors and self-employed people who employers may engage. These responsibilities cannot be transferred to people who work alone. It is the employer’s duty to assess risks to lone workers and take steps to avoid or control risk where necessary. Employees have responsibilities to take reasonable care of themselves and other people affected by their work and to co-operate with their employers in meeting their legal obligations.

Safety In Design for Access & Platforms, Stairways, Handrails

Buildings and facilities shall have a minimum of one main staircase from the lowest level to the highest level, servicing each main level and adjacent intermediate levels. All stairs and landings shall be provided with appropriate handrails and toe plates (perimeter kicking strips). The gap below the toe plates shall not exceed 10 mm.

Accesses and circulation to and around the equipment shall be direct, rational and consistent with providing optimum efficiency of operation and maintenance with maximum safety of personnel.

Informasi Singkat Tentang Kebakaran

Kebakaran adalah suatu reaksi oksidasi eksotermis yang berlangsung dengan cepat dari suatu bahan bakar yang disertai dengan timbulnya api/penyalaan.

Api berupa energi berintensitas yang bervariasi dan memiliki bentuk cahaya (dengan panjang gelombang juga di luar spektrum visual sehingga dapat tidak terlihat oleh mata manusia) dan panas yang juga dapat menimbulkan asap.

Dibawah ini telah kami rangkum informasi singkat tentang pengenalan dasar penyebab kebakaran dan teknik pemadaman.
