Procedures and Systems:

  • 1. Have risks been analysed to apply hierarchy of controls, e.g. suitably enclosed work platforms, scaffold or mobile elevated work platforms (MEWP) before fall restraint, fall arrest systems?

  • 2. Are relevant permits (where stipulated) authorised and implemented?

Competency and Understanding:

  • 3. Is there evidence of inductions, qualifications and competency?

Plant/Equipment Design and Selection:

  • 4. Is infrastructure selected and installed correctly, e.g. warning signs for fragile rooves/sky lights, guard rails, and safe access?

  • 7. Are temporary platforms and scaffolds been designed and approved by an authorised and competent person?

Protection and Unauthorised Access:

  • 8. Have scaffold, ladders and other temporary equipment been protected from being hit by moving equipment?

  • 9. Does overhead work have exclusion zones/barricades, catch nets, tool lanyards to segregate and protect people from falling objects?

Human Factors and Behaviours:

  • 10. Are safe behaviours being demonstrated e.g. not complacent/distracted/rushing

Plant and Equipment Testing and Maintenance:

  • 11. Are anchorage points for fall arrest devices positioned to prevent worker pendulum or touch the ground?

  • 12. Is plant and equipment stored and used correctly e.g. PPE, 4:1 set up for straight ladders secure, harnesses and helmets?

  • 13. Is plant and equipment maintained and checked prior to use e.g. scaffold, anchor points, harnesses and MEWP?

  • 14. Are rescue personnel, equipment and plans tested where fall arrest/fall restraint devices are used?
