Risk Assessment for Working on Existing Structure Premises

Working on existing structures have always been a great risky and existing and new occupational health and safety legislation in the EU, USA and or in the Middle East countries (United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, etc.) is all based on the basic principle of risk assessments, and or hazard identification, with the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 remaining the primary legislation against which prosecutions are brought by the enforcing authorities in the UK, and OSHAD in United Arab Emirates of Abu Dhabi. It shows building owners and managers how a coherent and holistic approach to undertaking risk assessments can provide cost savings – from less time spent undertaking and procuring risk assessments, a reduction in workforce and or employees injuries as a result of assessing the risks (the primary aim of conducting risk assessments being life safety) and improved site and building management.

This article focuses on various key areas as mentioned below:

Fire
Explosion
Asbestos
Legionella
Radon
Noise
Vibration
Flooding
Contaminated land
Environment

A structured approach to undertaking risk assessments in these areas leads to cost savings and improved outcomes compared with an authentic approach where each area is addressed and discussed individually.

In short, the benefits are:

Finance can be saved by reducing time spent finding, engaging and managing numerous separate external contractors.
• Reduction in time spent undertaking the assessments and reporting by the contractor.
• Generation of teamwork – certain control measures work to solve the risks in several areas, thus potentially reducing the costs from duplication of effort and reduced prices from bulk orders of equipment or other items.

This document applies to all types of existing non-domestic buildings and premises in the UK, USE, and EU and in the Middle East from offices, warehouses and industrial/processing sites to transport hubs such as airports and railway stations.During carrying out various services e.g., maintenance, demolition in existing structural premises pose a very critical and chronic occupational health and safety and ill health effects on the workforce and o the general public within the premises. Before carrying out such activities in the existing structure, a comprehensive risk assessment and or hazard identification required. The person involved in the process of risk assessment must be competent and have the complete experience. All existing and expected risks must be highlighted during the risk and hazard identification. The workforce then should be given knowledge and training to avoid any severe human and financial losses.
Once all assessments, training and orientations are conducted, then the service for maintenance or demolitions must proceed with the provision of the latest protective equipment, operating machinery and available best resources. Continuous inspections, supervisions, monitoring, reviewing and evaluation procedures must be followed to make this kind of project successful completion.
