"One I can think of is falling from heights. There can be trip hazards, bees and wasps when we’re in trees, power tool use while we’re 20 metres in the air.  As yet none of us have had an accident on site and I’ve been doing this work for 5 years”

Retained Firefighter Heavy Rescue

 

“It depends on the situation, in a House Fire there’s smoke, asbestos, explosion risk, risk of flashover and structure collapse and also of course the fire itself.  In a Bushfire again you have the smoke, risk of over run and falling debris, especially from burnt trees.  When it’s a Motor Vehicle Accident the hazards are fluids, blood, body parts, car parts, glass, sharp edges, the positions we as rescuers have to get in to work, inside a wreaked car to support a victim’s neck for example, can expose us to hazardous materials and fumes. There’s also the risk of explosion.”

Payroll Consultant

 

“I suppose it’s all the usual office stuff, sore eyes and headaches, a sore neck sometimes and lower back.  I also find being in a cubicle, the sound of other people’s technology and phones seems to distract me and sometimes stress me out, particularly if there’s a problem at work or we’re trying to meet a dead line.”

Traffic Control Co-ordinator

 

“Working with heavy vehicles have you have to be mindful of crush points, there’s the possibility of falling from heights as some of the machines are nearly 3 metres high.

 Plant or machinery competency is important; we also work in confined spaces.  Generally speaking most members of the public in vehicles will ignore approach signs to roadwork’s placing themselves and all road workers in serious danger.”
