CHIU TENG ENTERPRISES- KALLANG BAHRU COMPLEX

A) Scaffolding
Scaffolding shall only be erected by trained and qualified scaffold erectors and
supervised by a trained and qualified scaffold supervisor.

The status of scaffolding shall be clearly displayed during the construction, use and
dismantling by the use of a system of tags or labels e.g. "Scaff tag" system.

The qualified Scaffold Supervisor shall formally inspect each scaffold after
construction to ensure it is safe for use and every 7 days thereafter. Scaffolding
shall also be inspected after inclement weather.

Prevention of falling object

Tools, equipment and materials used for working at height shall be secured or
barriers put in place to prevent them from falling.

Where the potential risk of falling objects cannot be eliminated due to the nature of
the task e.g. erecting scaffolding, installing of bolts and nuts etc. then barricades
and signage shall be installed to restrict access to the areas below.

The determination of the extent of restricted access to areas shall consider the
likelihood of falling objects deflecting from structures.

The following methods for securing tools and equipment should be considered:

• Provision of suitable storage containers for tools and equipment.


• Placing tools on tool mats on work platforms and scaffold landings.
• Maintaining toe boards in place on scaffold landings and work platforms.
• keeping hand tools secured in tool belts or kit bags.
• Attaching tool to a lanyard (lanyard attachment must still allow the tool to be
used effectively).
• providing infill screens, such as mesh guards or meshing to stop equipment
passing through gaps between handrails.
• Securing of plywood to grid mesh flooring to cover penetrations.
• The use of overhead protection.
B) Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWP)

When using an MEWP, a banks man shall be used where there are congested
areas, blind spots (obscured vision) or where there is the potential for injury and/or
damage to plant or equipment.

liff' shall be secured at all times during operation with Fall Arrest equipment.

Activities involving MEWP use shall be undertaken according to local legislative


requirements.

Persons shall not access or exit a mobile work platform while it is in the raised
position, unless no other safe access exists and a safe system for access and
egress has been established and agreed as part of the TBM/JSI.

C) Mancages/Basket
Man cages/baskets shall only be used where it is not practicable to use alternative
methods such as scaffolding or MEWPs.

The use of man cages/baskets and associated lifting equipment shall be in


accordance with the minimum local legislative requirements of CP 63: Code of
Practice for lifting of persons in work platform suspended from cranes.

Ladders

Where a ladder is used it shall be fit for purpose and shall comply with any local
legislative standards.

While climbing a ladder, a person shall maintain at least three points of contact.

Ladders are primarily used for access and egress to working area. Where a ladder
is used to perform work, the risk assessment should be review the controls required
to prevent a fall.

Where ladder access is used, items such as tool and equipment are not to be
carried by hand. Provisions should be made to use equipment such as cranes,
material hoist, gin wheel, enclosed tool bags etc.

5.0 FALL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT


A) Equipment

All work at height equipment is fit for purpose, inspected prior to use and
maintained by competent persons. Equipment which is found to be damaged or
defective is removed from service.

B) Design

arrest equipment and hand holds within the cages/baskets.

C) EDGE PROTECTION
Edge protection (e.g. guard rail systems) shall be provided to the edge of a
scaffold, fixed stair landing, suspended slab, platform, access ramps openings,
formwork or false excavations work where a person has the potential to fall from
one level to another.

The edge protection system shall be capable of withstanding a force of 90


kilograms in any direction.

Where edge protection is used on a roof with a pitch greater than 150 from the
Horizontal, then the guard rails shall be able to withstand the additional impact
forces associated with the momentum of a person or object.

Edge protection should consist of a top rail positioned not more than 1000mm
above the working surface and a mid-rail that is positioned midway between the top
rail and the toe board.
D) Fall Restraint

Fall restraint systems shall be used in preference to fall arrest whenever


practicable.

Fall restraint systems are used to prevent the user from reaching an unprotected
Edge where a fall is possible. A fall restraint system shall consist of anchorage
Point, a static line or restraint line and a safety belt/harness.
A fall restraint system should consider the following points:

CD The slope of the surface;


CD Integrity of supporting structures;
CD Anchorage points;
.. Safe access and egress.

6
CHIU TENG ENTERPRISES- KALLANG BAHRU COMPLEX

A fall arrest system shall only be used as a last resort.

The fall arrest system shall include:

• Single person anchor point capable of supporting 22 Kilonewtons;


• Anchor points which are mounted overhead where applicable;
• A full body harness shall be worn which incorporates double latch self- snap
hooks at each connection; and
• The fall arrest equipment shall limit free-fall to tolerable levels.
Fall clearance shall be checked to ensure that there is adequate clearance
between the point of fall and collision with next level or potential pendulum effect.

Anchor points should be fit for purpose and capable of withstanding a 22 KN load
(2200 kg) for one person in a free-fall arrest situation.

Anchor points are, where possible, mounted over head to reduce swing and free
fall distance.

Personnel must not be exposed to falling to levels below prior to being securely
connected to, or after, disconnected from the anchor point.

A lanyard is used for connecting between the harness and the anchor point via
double latch self-locking snap hook at each end. The lanyard incorporates a shock
absorber which is designed to arrest a fall not exposing a person to a force greater
than 300 kilograms.

Do not wrap lanyards around beams for anchoring - use the correct anchorage
equipment.

Fall clearances shall be checked to ensure that there is adequate clearance


between the point of fall and collision with next level of from pendulum effect. Fall
clearance is calculated as the length of lanyard + the tear out distance of the shock
absorber + height of user + height of anchor point (+ sag in static line if used) +
safety margin.

6.0 EQUIPMENT INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE

A system shall be in place to ensure that all equipment used in working at height is
Inspected and maintained by a competent person.
