If you are a construction site manager, a civil engineer, a quantity surveyor, or simply a laborer, you are required to exercise a modicum of caution in your daily work related activities. Danger can come in various guises in your work life: a slippery scaffolding, a loose belt which is supposed to fix you up against the harness that is meant to carry you all the way to the top of a building, a malfunctioning tripod lowering you to a gaping hole in the ground, a faulty cylinder of gas being exposed a source of fire. All such scenario can result in unspeakable tragedy and disaster. You are required therefore to act as responsible and intelligent human beings and not keep equipment, as if they are your fellow human beings: they will fail you, surprise you, and disappoint you. You need to keep them in constant check: treat them, oil them, observe them, and test them; as regularly as possible; at least well before you are to use them. If the equipment is a billion years old, then maybe it is high time you invest in a new set. Don’t live to regret a calamity brought forth by a loose screw, a rusty belt, a malfunctioning switch, or a faulty faucet.
Fire is an unpredictable monster: it springs up when we least expect it, it propagates and procreates, and it sweeps in and out to lay waste in its wake: a disaster. All we can do is take precautions: why not buy one of those fancy new multi-purpose fire extinguishers? These are, mostly, used in certain kinds of fire (the usage depends on the origin/the compound of the fire.Sometimes the contact of regular extinguishing compounds may even cause the fire to exacerbate). However there are such multi-purpose ones which cover range of different fires. You are then prepared to take control of the situation if it comes to that. You will not be running around looking water buckets and wet rags. It is also important that you invest in a good product (as aforementioned), and not buy it off a shelf of the nearest utility store.
Up as you go
Height safety equipment Melbourne malfunctioning can be anyone’s worst nightmare. Imagine that moment that you get stuck in your harness and are left to dangle in mid air hundreds of feet from the floor: what a sweet delight!
