  • NOISE:<br>Will the work create higher noise levels? Consider the need for hearing protection in the work area.

  • MANUAL HANDLING:<br>Consider if the work tasks contain any Manual Handling Risks.

  • EXCAVATION:<br>Consider if the work requires an excavation to be dug.<br>Do you need to check for services prior to excavation?

  • WORKING AT HEIGHTS:<br>Consider if personnel are working at height during this task. <br>Are they trained to perform the task?

  • SLIP & TRIP HAZARDS:<br>Consider if any slip / trip hazards are present at the worksite.<br>Will equipment to be used form a trip hazard?

  • REFERENCE: Wet surfaces labeled with proper warning sign to avoid slips and trips
    [This is an example of how you can use iAuditor to include best practice reference images in your templates to assist with inspections]

  • SITE SECURITY / EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS:<br>Prevent unauthorized access to the work site at all times.<br>Ensure site emergency planning has occurred.

  • WORKING OUTDOORS:<br>Consider the ambient conditions / associated hazards.<br>Consider precautions to prevent exposure to heat/cold.

  • LIFTING:<br>Consider if work task involves crane lifts.<br>Ensure a lift study has been conducted.

  • FIRE / IGNITION SOURCES:<br>Consider if hot work is being conducted in the work area. Consider containment / testing requirements.

  • ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS:<br>Is there potential to release pollutants to drain’s / marine environment / waterway’s / ground / atmosphere; Vibration / noise emission beyond the project perimeter; generation of dust or disposal of hazardous waste?

  • DECONTAMINATION OF PLANT AND EQUIPMENT:<br>Plant, Equipment, and PPE must be decontaminated at the end of each day and or when exposed equipment is to leave the asbestos area

  • VIBRATION:<br>Consider the need for vibration monitoring from demolition process, especially when working near heritage type buildings.

  • HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE STORAGE / SPILLS PREVENTION:<br>Consider if any potential spill sources exist in the work area.<br>Consider the need for bunds, drip trays, spill blankets, absorption etc
