Jessica Mangan's insight:

Machine isolation, lock out tag out, and machine safety is a big safety risk on our site given that we work in food manufacturing.  Training and knowledge around correct isolation procedures are especially important for maintenance fitters who work on this machinery when required, yet aren't the operators who work with them all the time. It is important they use danger tags to communicate to others that they are working in these areas.  This helps keep everyone safe around machines which can cause serious incidents.

Confined Spaces Risk Management Procedure : Safety : The University of Melbourne

Jessica Mangan's insight:

Although all of our maintenance personnel are trained to be competent in confined space entry prior to being permitted to carry out such work, this link provides a useful reminder of the procedures you must follow, and helpful hints.  As long periods of time may pass between workers needing to enter confined spaces (although we ensure the competency is kept current), sometimes a reminder of the procedures is required to prepare properly for the task.

Jessica Mangan's insight:

Although this website is aimed at a different industry, the information contained around working at heights is relevant to our workplace also.  This website also shows relevant legislation, regulations and codes of practice.  If Luke wanted further clarification on any issues surrounding working at heights, we make sure our employees know where to access this information and can assist them in looking up what they want, and find their way around the legislation etc.
