Incident Recommendations

Check all doors similar to this, or any plant/ equipment that is designed to move on your platform. Has it been included in a preventive maintenance and inspection scheme?

Recognise, report and challenge the use of equipment/ plant which you feel is not working as it should – stop the job and reassess.

Never let an unsafe practice become routine and accepted – if something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t – think of a better and safer method.
