Here is some safety information regarding working in isolation.

When working alone in a remote location, it is important to identify and manage any potential hazards and risks to ensure your safety. Here’s an example of a safety plan for working alone:

  1. Task description: The task involves working alone in a remote location without any direct supervision or assistance. You will be required to complete the task independently.
  2. Hazards and risks: The following hazards and risks have been identified:
  • Isolation and lack of communication
  • Inclement weather conditions
  • Environmental hazards such as uneven terrain, slippery surfaces, and wild animals
  • Equipment failure or malfunction
  • Personal injury due to accidents, falls or exposure to hazardous materials
  1. Control measures: To mitigate the hazards and risks identified, the following control measures will be implemented:
  • You will have access to a communication device to enable regular check-ins with a supervisor or emergency services
  • You will have access to personal protective equipment (PPE) including appropriate clothing and footwear, hard hat, gloves, and safety glasses
  • You will have access to emergency equipment such as a first aid kit and rescue equipment
  • You will receive appropriate training and induction on the task, equipment, and risks associated with working alone in a remote location
  • You will have access to weather forecasts and will be required to monitor conditions throughout the task
  • You will be required to undertake a pre-start equipment check to identify any potential issues or malfunctions before starting the task
  • You will be required to work within your capabilities and not undertake tasks beyond your skill level or physical ability
  1. Emergency procedures: In the event of an emergency, you will:
  • Use the communication device to contact emergency services and follow their instructions
  • Follow the evacuation procedure if required
  • Administer first aid if trained and qualified to do so
  1. Review and sign off: This safety plan will be reviewed regularly to ensure it remains current and effective. You will sign off on the plan to confirm that you have read, understood, and will adhere to the control measures outlined in this document.

Note: This is a general example of a safety plan for working alone in a remote location. The actual plan will need to be tailored to the specific task and environment in which you will be working.

Gary’s Safety Tips

Hello everyone, it’s a pleasure to be speaking with you today about an important topic that should be on the radar of every business owner: the enforcement of safe work method statements.

Now, I understand that this may not be the most exciting topic, but it is crucial for keeping your employees safe and your business out of legal trouble. Safe work method statements outline potential hazards associated with a job and the steps required to mitigate those risks. By enforcing these statements, you demonstrate that you take safety seriously and care about the wellbeing of your employees.

But how can you ensure that these statements are being enforced? Firstly, it is important to educate your team on the importance of these statements and what they can do to ensure that they are being followed. Consider holding a training session or workshop to go over the statements in detail and answer any questions that your team members may have.

Secondly, make sure that your safe work method statements are easily accessible. Consider posting them in a central location or providing each employee with a copy that they can keep with them at all times.

Lastly, it is important to hold your team accountable for following these statements. Consider implementing a system where employees are required to sign off on the statement before beginning a job, or conducting regular inspections to ensure that the statements are being followed. If you find that someone is not following the statements, take appropriate action to correct the behaviour and prevent it from happening again.

In conclusion, the enforcement of safe work method statements is critical for the success of any business. It keeps employees safe and protects the business from legal troubles. Don’t overlook the importance of these statements; take the time to educate your team, make them easily accessible, and hold everyone accountable for following them. Thank you for your time and attention.
