Workplace management

  • Take care with the general layout of your workshop and storage yard as this will affect the safety of the premises.
  • Position machines to take account of production requirements as well as the safe movement of people and materials.
  • Stack timber and board materials safely - in previous years falling stacks and boards have accounted for nearly 20% of fatalities and 13% of major injuries.
  • Encourage your workers to keep their own workspace tidy and free of obstacles.
