Intent – To eliminate or minimise the risks of fatalities, injuries and events arising from piling operations

Critical Controls

  • Stability and ground bearing pressure reports for plant set up and operation undertaken and communicated to the work crew
  • When working on water, a barge stability report has been undertaken by a third party and is available for review
  • Lifting operations effectively managed
  • Where required, a current manbox and or working-at-heights permit is in place
  • Current permit to manage excavations in place, services identified, and available for review
  • Plant and people are separated, defined exclusion zones are maintained, and entry to work areas is controlled
  • Controls such as tool lanyards, barricading and signage in place to prevent and manage the risk of dropped objects where works are occurring above or adjacent
  • Changes of process, equipment, temporary and permanent works design re-assessed by competent persons with controls in place and understood by the work crew
