09 - HEIGHT SAFETY

Height Safety & Installed Systems

Your Responsibilities

The law in Australia states that the person in control of

a premises are responsible for all hazards and have the

responsibility of assessing and eliminating or controlling

risks. The various individual state regulations specify that

the controller(s) of a premises must ensure that safe access

is provided to all parts of a place of work to which a person

may require access and from which a person may fall. This

responsibility covers employees, visitors and contractors.

If an area or task is identified as being a risk, Bullivants can

work with you and your people to design, supply and install a

system which suits your needs to achieve the safest working

environment.

Risk Assessment

Before the installation of each Working at Heights and Safety

Solution a complete audit and risk assessment is carried out to

determine the risks and associated hazards and the best control

measures to implement.

When assessing each building structure or access issue,

hazard identification should be carried out to determine the

potential risk of injury with solutions being selected or prioritised

within a six level “Hierarchy of Control” shown below.

Control Products

Hazard Identification

& Risk Assessment

Conducted during our initial

site audit where Bullivants would

identify each hazard and carry out

a risk assessment on each.

Elimination

Identified during our site

audit process Bullivants would,

where possible, recommend the

elimination of the height safety

risk through re-design.

Substitution

Also identified through

our site audit process, if the

elimination risk through re-design

is not possible, Bullivants would

recommend the substitution of

components, processes

or systems.

Isolation

If substitution is not possible

Bullivants would recommend the

isolation of worker risk through the

use of permanent edge protection

systems (walkways and guard

rails).

Administration

With a combination of

operating procedures, Work

Method Statements or Job Safety

Analysis, hazards and risk can be

significantly reduced.

Fall Protection

If the risk cannot be

isolated, Bullivants would

then recommend the use of fall

protection equipment (vertical and

horizontal systems, anchor points,

harnesses & lanyards)
