Safe Working from Heights – HVAC&R Industry Guide to Workplace Safety – Released
Press Release – July 2013
All organisations require the participants to be aware of, acknowledge and contribute to the successful running of the organisation. By understanding and implementing their WHS duties and responsibilities, everyone will have a positive impact on the organisation and their fellow workers. In collaboration with the Air Conditioning & Mechanical Contractors’ Association, Pro-Visual Publishing’s newest edition of the HVAC&R Industry Guide to Workplace Safety is aimed to help achieve this awareness, and contribute to the safety and wellbeing of all involved in the HVAC&R Industry.
This year’s guide provides industry members and managers with advice and information on the duties and responsibilities of all in the workplace. What compliance and enforcement looks like within the HVAC&R industry, including the functions of industry WHS regulators and the responsibilities everyone has to ensure WHS policies are upheld and maintained.
Other topics highlighted within the guide include the importance of preventing falls from heights, including ladders and roofs. Each year, many serious injuries result from falls from ladders. Overreaching, trying to carry out heavy tasks or simply not setting the ladder up securely are among some of the common causes of falls. If a task must be done where there is a risk of a person falling more than two metres, a risk assessment must be undertaken by law.
