Dangerous Equipment - Cherry Picker

Graham Marshall - Thursday, March 01, 2012

I am continuing the theme started earlier this week and posting another example picture of unsafe equipment.

The photograph can be used in its own right as a daily "safety moment" to highlight the dangers of using unsafe equipment.

I've also put the pictures into a Power Point slide show to be used in a tool-box talk.

To access the Dangerous Equipment tool-box talk, visit the blog on Saturday 3rd of March.

Today's example of dangerous equipment shows an Elevating Work Platform (EWP) - "Cherry Picker" -  with the gate and whole rear safety barrier missing.  Another shocker!

Always remember to use the Think 6, Look 6 hazard management process:

Hazards = kinetic energy of the workman up high in the basket;

Triggers = the broken gate and missing rear section are the main triggers here;

Potential incidents = fall from height;

Consequences = death or serious injury;

What should you do to control the hazards?
