Safety Guidelines for Plumbers
Plumbing Industry Guide to Safety 2014 – Released
There are many contributing factors to optimise an industry’s safety performance. In the case of plumbing operations issues such as hazards associated when operating with electricity, working in confined spaces, drugs and alcohol in the workplace, working in cold and damp conditions and potential biological hazards all play a role. It is essential that all industries are aware of these factors and appropriate procedures must be implemented and adhered to in order to minimise risks. With this in mind, Pro-Visual Publishing Pty Ltd in a collaborative effort with Master Plumbers Australia have released the newest edition of their Plumbing Industry Guide to Safety. This guide provides useful information for managing risks to workers and others involved in the industry.
One prominent topic of this year’s guide highlights the importance of electrical safety in the plumbing industry. Electrical structures around the workplace can present various issues, especially regarding electric shock and burns in confined and hazardous areas. Ways to assess these risks and maintain a safe and controlled environment are presented in an easy-to-read manner, for workers to refer to on a daily basis.
Other topics relate to the well-being of the workers and their colleagues in areas such as drugs and alcohol. When under the influence of either alcohol or drugs, employees pose a high safety risk and may affect his/her performance and behaviour. Workers and their colleagues should be aware of the strategies to minimise these risks when working.“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Plumbing Industry Guide to Safety 2014. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge”, said John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing
