Safe Lifting, Working at Height and Preventing Dropped Objects: 2024 Q3

Thorough planning & hazard identification for lifting operations, working at height, & preventing potential dropped objects allows hazards to be safely managed.

Thorough planning and specific hazard identification for lifting operations, working at height, and preventing potential dropped objects will allow hazards to be safely managed.

Resources included in this section will help you to:

🔺 Improve hazard awareness of routine lifting tasks and their potential to cause a major accident

🔺 Identify and manage hazards related to working at height

🔺 Increase awareness of potential dropped objects and their effects

_______________________________________________________________________________________

This quarter’s theme of “Safe Lifting, Working at Height, and Preventing Dropped Objects” is a regular focus area of health and safety teams and is equally relevant to offshore and onshore operations.

Data from Step Change in Safety’s electronic observation system (e-obs) identifies just how frequently these concerns arise.

When combined, cards submitted featuring line of fire, safe mechanical lifting and “other” contribute the highest number of unsafe behaviours. Examination of the “other” category show most concerns are as a result of tripping hazards, obstructions and potential dropped objects due to poor housekeeping. It is also worth noting that gravity is the second most selected hazard to date.

Our resources range from one page safety alerts to 15min videos. We encourage you to browse and share with your colleagues to help reduce the number of incidents in this area.
