When ascending or descending the ladder, maintain three points of contact and keep your body centred between the stiles.
Only one person is to be on a ladder at any one time.
Do not stand above the tread or rung on the ladder indicated as the maximum safe working height.
Step or trestle ladders are only to be used in the fully open position. A rigid metal spreader or locking device must be used and the load must be carried by the front stiles.
Where there is a risk of falling more than 2 meters, fall arrest equipment compliant with AS/NZS 1891 is to be used.
Fall arrest equipment is only to be used by a person trained in the safe and correct use of the system and is not to be used by a person working alone.
When working near power lines, work must be carried out in accordance with the relevant electrical legislation.
Metal or metal reinforced ladders must not be used where an electrical hazard exists. AS 1892.1
Use perimeter containment screening to avoid persons being injured by objects being dropped from the ladder.
Consideration is to be given to using lanyards on tools when used on a ladder.

Check the weight of the load by lifting slightly at the sides. Remember that packages may not have their loads evenly distributed.
Ensure the load can be gripped safely and comfortably.
Ensure the load is within easy reach.
Clear obstructions from the route you are planning to travel. Remember that your line of sight can be obstructed by the load.
Ensure the place you are planning to place the load is free of obstructions.
Avoid awkward postures. You may have to move the load slightly prior to lifting. Example – from under another object.

Ensure a good grip before exerting force to lift, push or pull the object / tool.
Keep the load as close to the body as possible, this will reduce the strain on the lower back.
Ensure that the load is pulled close to your body.
If the load is lower than your waist bend your knees. (Bending your knees is very important if you wish to avoid sprains and strains.)
Ensure that you have a firm grip with both hands. (Lifting with one hand increases the risk of injury.)
Hold your head upright. This will ensure that you keep the three curves of your back in their natural position.
Lift the load smoothly. Avoid sudden, jerky or hard-to control movements
Lift with your legs, they are stronger than your back. Let your legs provide the lifting force.
Turn with your feet and not with your upper body.
Steel capped footwear must be worn at all times.
Gloves should be worn where hand injuries are possible from hot, sharp or rough surfaces

• there are enough people,
• someone will be coordinating the lift, (will call out when to lift, carry and put down the object.)
• training has been provided, andthe lift has been rehearsed.
Everyone must have a firm grip. (Note – Injuries are caused when one person involved in the lift loses their grip and all ofthe weight of the load is taken by the remaining team members.)

Make sure leads are elevated 2m off the ground with the use of lead stands or lead hooks and that power is from an outlet that is RCD protected. Keep leads away from the cutting area.
Cutting can have a peak noise level of 123dB, therefore the cutter and workers in the immediate vicinity need to wear appropriate hearing protection. Post warning signs in the area that indicate hearing protection must be worn.
To minimise exposure to other workers, cutting/grinding to take place as far away from workface as practicable
Face and eye protection will be used for aluminium cutting.
