Your Arrangements details all of the different types of work activity that you do, all the types of hazard that may be encountered and how you will manage this.
Here are a few examples:
Manual Handling - Manual handling injuries can have serious implications for an employer and, of course, the person who has been injured. They can occur in any workplace, but the risk is increased with heavy manual labour and for workers with existing injuries.
Mechanical Lifting - Lifting equipment includes any equipment used at work for lifting or lowering loads, including attachments used for anchoring, fixing or supporting it. Regulations cover a wide range of equipment including, cranes, forklift trucks, lifts, hoists, mobile elevating work platforms and vehicle inspection platform hoists. The definition also includes lifting accessories such as chains and slings.
Electrical - Electricity can kill or severely injure people & cause damage to property. Simple precautions when working with or near electricity and electrical equipment can significantly reduce the risk of injury to you, your workers and others around you.
