Do your employees work with scaffolding, forklifts and cages? Here are the PPE requirements for this equipment

by , 21 July 2014
Whenever your employees work off the ground, their risk of having an injury is immediately higher. It doesn't matter if it's 30 centimetres or 30 metres. If your employee can fall off, he can injure himself.

This is why you have to put safety precautions in place to protect your employees. But what kind of safety precautions work best?

The answer lies in keeping it simple and fulfilling the PPE requirements for the elevated equipment they use...

*********** Best seller  *************
Here's how you can be 100% sure your risk assessments are legally compliant...
 
Everything you need to effectively manage risk in your business, avoid accidents in the workplace and be 100% compliant with the DoL is now available to you in this one resource.
 
Can you afford to not have it?
 
*********************************
 

PPE is the best way to protect your employees who work on scaffolding, forklifts and in cages

 
Did you know the OHS Act requires you to have a fall protection plan in place if your employees work at heights?
 
The most vital parts of this plan are the pieces of safety equipment you provide to protect employees from falls.
 
And there's one particular piece of PPE your employees should always wear when they're off the ground...
 

Ensure your employees wear this piece of PPE when they work off the ground

 
A fall protection harness can mean the difference between life and death if your employee falls.
 
A harness works simply by connecting your employee to the raised area he's working on. This way if he slips off, the harness will catch him before he hits the ground.
 
And you can save his life, just by giving him this vital piece of protective clothing. Just ensure you first do a thorough fall risk assessment so you know exactly which type of safety equipment you must put in place with your PPE.
 
*********** Product endorsement  ************
Stop wasting time not knowing what to train your employees on.
 
You know you have to train your employees on health and safety, but you don't know which ones you really have to do. And you don't have the time to waste training employees every week.
 
What if I told you I have the solution to your problem. And it only takes 15 minutes of your time?
