    solution is to gain control through planning organisation and selection of appropriate equipment TECHNICAL DETAILS OF SOLUTION PROVIDED The PlusEight mobile structures were moved progressively along the ceiling as required As soon as the birdcages reached the end of the mezzanine level the structures were dismantled and re erected on the opposite end of the stairwell This then allowed a link to be formed between the mezzanine mobile and the ground level mobile providing access over the stair Once the stairwell was completed the link was removed and the ground mobile could continue along the remainder of the area The client benefited from substantial cost savings in using mobile structures The alternative would have been a structure that spanned the whole ceiling area The initial build took three men 1 5 days to complete WINNING THE CONTRACT Turner Access was awarded the contract due to its commitment to provide safer systems of work on site Statutory Regulations such as the Work at Height Regulations 2005 Reg 6 3 place hierarchical requirements to use collective protection over mitigation options Collective Protection methodology is used throughout Turner s contracting operations The PlusEight birdcages were erected using PlusGard an external telescopic Advance Guardrail that prevents the risk of fall from height throughout erection dismantle and alteration of most scaffold configurations PlusGard is suitable for use on System Scaffolding Tube Fittings Falsework and Aluminium Towers PlusGard can also be used on offshore applications with the addition of a third guardrail for increased safety Turner Access can offer Industry a full range of Collective Protection equipment from Low Level Access solutions to Aluminium Towers Turner s BetaGuard addresses the risks associated with traditional tower assembly offering an option that not only prevents the risk of fall from height but also compliance of other Statutory Regulations such as Manual Handling Because of this major contractors and their clients have specified the use of BetaGuard on their sites Among the specifying contractors was Bovis Lend Lease at Media City following a Worldwide Best Practice Alert distributed by the BuildSafe safety organisation BetaGuard has also been specified by Balfour Beatty specification is stated in their Zero Harm document distributed throughout the organisation Olympic Delivery Authority included in Standard 5 Health Safety Standards for Mobile Access Towers at Work and ASDA WAL MART specified in their Way of Working Document BetaGuard is an Integral Advance Guardrail that provides complete fall prevention during assembly dismantle and alteration of Aluminium Towers Additional benefits of using BetaGuard include productivity and stock control improvements and ease of assembly dismantle BetaGuard offers the user a choice of using single decks only or fully decking at each level of the tower Users also have the option to use traditional bracing with the BetaGuard frame or not This allows users to save on investment as unnecessary components i e decks and braces can be reduced A reduction in components provides savings on labour cost while also reducing unnecessary exposure to manual handling risk Another benefit to

  • Scaffold planning and selection issues under spotlight
    used Unfortunately many suppliers leave it to the users to address this important statutory requirement and how their particular equipment can be used to meet WAH Regulation 6 3 However the joint user and client understanding of the hierarchy is essential as correctly selecting the most appropriate equipment for work at height makes compliance possible or registers reasoning to possibly justify why safer alternatives required by the WAH hierarchy have been ruled out In most instances users and clients are offered designs detailing practice that involves mitigation at best against falls i e practice relying upon arrest harnesses with no other choice provided to duty holders It is worth noting that under CDM an employee s sub contractor s system of work is ultimately also partly owned by the Main Contactor or even the Client It is clear that if duty holders those who plan and control the work of others understand what is required they will put themselves in a much better position to make the correct choice at the project planning stage Whilst the starting point to it all is product selection together with product guidance and design which makes compliance possible other factors are also important to consider e g training product standards and approvals TRAINING Awareness Training for planners supervisors managers and safety auditors is required to plan select organise supervise and then enforce audit that the SOW is being carried out correctly Practical Erection Training is also essential for the erectors This type of training is additional to most training that has been provided through national schemes until recently as the concepts are new and different and generally specific to the products or designs provided This could include any equipment that can prevent the risk of fall during the complete SOW process most likely advanced guardrails which may be independent types additional equipment or an advanced guardrail type which may be intended as part of the scaffold configuration involved Integral when the scaffold is complete Evidence of Awareness training for planners supervisors managers etc which includes the collective options which may be selected to achieve compliance and practical assessment for erectors to ensure understanding and check capability may be necessary to prove competence ALUMINIUM TOWERS Aluminium towers are one of the most common forms of scaffold access system used in the UK Two processes were approved by the HSE and PASMA as options for users in 2004 before the WAHR regulations were introduced The fully collective advanced Guardrail option utilizing telescopic Advanced Guardrails features has now been superseded by a new Integral type providing substantial improvement in terms of ease of use simplicity and efficiency making the said Industry guidance documents now subject to review This is what Judith Hackett Chairperson of the HSE had to say about it when she reviewed this new practice The considerable health and safety advances were clearly evident PRODUCT STANDARDS AND APPROVALS The equipment chosen to provide the collective SOW process should also either meet the appropriate product standard
