Suspended Scaffolds Toolbox Talks

Here we will discuss the term “Suspended scaffolds”. The suspended Scaffold structure is a platform that is suspended by strong ropes or other non-rigid means from an overhead structure. Suspended scaffolds include the following: 

A. Swing stage. 
B. Multipoint scaffolds.
C. Catenary scaffolds. 

  1. Suspended scaffolds can crate and cause fatal and serious risks if there is a failure or damage and or destruction in the integrity of the structure or the ropes. Moreover, the Workforce/employees at heights risk extreme and fatal serious human injuries or death from falls if fall-protection systems are not installed or in place. To protect the workers while working on scaffolds, follow these safety guidelines and points to ensure safety:
  2. Suspended scaffolds must be designed by a competent person.
  3. Ensure that all of the Suspension Support Devices (SSD) are resting on surfaces that have the strength and ability to support at least four times the intended load. 

If we meant what are supporting devices? These include:

  • Outrigger beams. 
  • Cornice hooks.
  • Parapet clamps.
  • Similar devices.


  1. Verify that each suspension rope, including connecting hardware is capable of supporting without failure at least 6 times the maximum intended load.
  2. When inspecting scaffolds for capacity, keep in mind that adjustable suspension scaffolds are designed to be raised and lowered while occupied by workers and materials and must be capable and have the ability and strength of bearing their load both stationary or in motion.
  3. Restrain outrigger beams to prevent movement.
  4. To keep a scaffold from falling to the ground, use counterweights and attach them to an acceptable anchor point
  5. Use fall protection (either a guardrail system or a personal fall arrest system) While running on any scaffold 10 feet or more above a decreased degree. When working on a suspension scaffold, use both a guardrail and a private fall arrest system. Inspect all scaffolds before use or at least daily.

Hundreds of people are injured or killed as a result of crane accidents in the United States, the UK, and the rest of the World every year. Many accidents happen as a result of failure to control the load. To eliminate and mitigate this risk, always use taglines for controlling awkward loads and maneuvering them into difficult positions. 

For safe use, follow these procedures:

  1. Use taglines to control loads when their use is practical and will not create additional hazards.
  2. After securing a load with taglines, stay clear of the path of the load and well forward of the load.
  3. If it's mandatory to guide the load, stay well away at a safe distance from the wheels or tracks of the crane.
  4. When guiding a load, remain visible to the crane operator at all times.
  5. Never walk between the suspended load and the crane.
  6. When working around electrical equipment or lines, make sure the tagline stays clear of the equipment or lines.

MEP and Installation Work on Roofs Toolbox Talks

Working on Roofs carries a high risk of accidents unless proper procedures are followed and precautions are taken. Before carrying out any MEP & installation work on any type of roof you should know the rules set out as mentioned and follow them essentially:-

  1. For work on a roof, risk assessments must be done to determine guardrail and toe board requirements.
  2. For work on a sloping roof with a pitch of more than 30 degrees (or less than 30 degrees, if it is slippery) crawling ladders or crawling boards must be provided and used.
  3. There may be circumstances where the use of a safety harness is the only safe way of working. Such a decision will be made by management, and you must use the safety harness in the conditions specified.
  4. All openings in roofs must be securely covered or suitably guarded by guardrails and toe boards. Any cover provided should either be securely fixed in position or marked to indicate its purpose, for example: "Do not remove the cover-hole below". Annually; serious and fatal accidents happen when someone lifts a board and then walks down the hole it was covering.
  5. Access provided to the roof must be checked before use to see that it is safe and sufficient.
  6. Beware of fragile roofs,  If in doubt see your supervisor.

Tips for Food Safety in Commercial Kitchens

This article will enhance your food safety in commercial kitchens, restaurants, and other food processing units. To get more information regarding food safety, keep on visiting my blog frequently.

Among the many aspects involved with running a commercial kitchen, one that cannot be overlooked or compromised on is food safety and food safety training. From how the food itself is stored and prepared to the likelihood of bacteria spreading from the people handling food, it is imperative that every commercial kitchen has a food safety policy.

The food produced in a commercial kitchen can be dangerous to health due to various reasons such as using supplies past their date of expiry, and contamination that occurred either at the source, at the store or when the food is served. In order to avoid getting into a situation where food safety is compromised, one should start focusing on the points of possible contamination to prevent it.

There are certain tips that can help you in maintaining a safe commercial kitchen. Food safety has to be considered from the point at which you are about to receive the supplies. You can do this by getting information on the chain of supply and even visiting some of the places to check if there is a way for the food to get contaminated.

It is always better to work with those who are approved by the public health department for your supplies, it can pay dividends to know where the food you are serving comes from and how it is packaged and transported.

Storage of Food: 

Contamination often occurs in this stage even though your food may not have reached its date of expiry. Always thoroughly check food and don’t follow labeling blindly.

Process of Cooking: 

Food items that are not cooked or served cold have a better chance of getting contaminated. It is the duty of the kitchen to make sure that all food is cooked to a safe temperature for consumption.

The cleanliness of your staff and their safety procedures has a great influence on the safety of the food.

Training staff so that they are aware of recent food laws and processes should ensure that they are fit for work and nothing is left to chance.

A safe Place: 

The store or the kitchen should be free of any rodents or other disease-carrying pests. The presence of such pests can compromise food safety and on the identification of such issues, the kitchen should be closed until all traces have been removed and the kitchen area thoroughly cleaned to food law standards.

Risk Assessment Decommissioning and Removal of Electrical Installation

The following is a part of risk assessment and their control measures for the site decommissioning and removal of electrical installation. To download a complete risk assessment for the "Risk assessment decommissioning and removal of electrical installation", click on the given link at the end of these points:


  • Contact with the live electrical conductor
  • Accidental or unauthorized livening of the circuit
  • Contact with services

Control Measures

  1. Only trained and authorized persons are permitted to operate the plant
  2. Before setting up the operator and the designated bank's man will assess the ground conditions for stability to prevent subsidence.
  3. The crane will be set up as close to the lift area as possible to avoid overreaching.
  4. The crane operator will not attempt to lift outside the specified crane capacity
  5. The load should always be Kept close to the ground
  6. The crane operator should maintain a steady speed during the operation Ground conditions: The crane company you have elected to use can give you suitable words to the effect that the ground on which the cranes will operate is capable of supporting the weight of the cranes and load. Crane outriggers will use ground mats and supporting grillages to provide additional support
  7. Where possible an exclusion zone should be erected to segregate the work area from another plant.
  8. Setting up will be under the control of the bank's man. The bank's man should ensure there is adequate space between the crane and any structures and take into account the swing radius.
  9. Before starting the crane operator should carry out a trial run to ensure
  10. All instructions to the excavator  operator will be given by the bank's man (where possible this will be with the use of 2-way radios)
