Safer sites initiative 2013 - image gallery 3

As the initiative draws to a close, take a look at our final image gallery of good and bad practice.

Working at height

The front of a house undegoing repairs using scaffolding

Good practice demonstrated on this domestic re-pointing job

A man works on dry cutting of block work without using suppression

Would you use this ladder at the top of a four lift scaffold?

Site order

This site got its act together following a visit from our inspectors.

Tools and various objects litter an indoor workspace

Before - cluttered work space

Items have been stored in an orderly fashion within a workspace

After - items stored in orderly fashion

Structural safety

Insufficient propping of load bearing beam, a cross support should be in use instead of wood.

An old plank of woood propped on a wooden block is used to support a ceiling.

Insufficient support at this site also, made safe after Inspectors intervened:

A firestation undegoing roof repairs

Before - single beam used to prop up ceiling

A firestaion with a temporary roof cover and handrails in place

After - a number of beams provide support

Manual handling

Good practice - Tile lift used on this community centre repair project to lift bricks instead of relying on manual handling.

A lift extends to the top of scaffolding work, for easy transport of material
