Why Holdsafe?

You may not be aware that there are many properties which are non-compliant as regards to current OH&S legislation. This means that trades people are not able to carry out any work on the roof in a completely safe manner to install or repair gutters, air conditioning units, cleaning of gutters and roofs etc.

Holdsafe can provide a roof access system which ensures from the moment the tradesperson leaves the ground and starts climbing the ladder until completion of the work he is safe from falling and injuring himself and protected from public liability claims or work related insurance claims involving roof and ladder safety.

Legal Requirements

The Occupational Health and Safety Act 1989 (ACT) requires that the employer provide, as far as is practicable, a workplace that is healthy and safe. This means that the employer needs to consider the safe design of workplace equipment and implement suitable systems of work. The employer has a duty to identify hazards with equipment and plant, and assess and control any potential risks.

Slips, Trips and Falls

Slips, trips and falls account for a significant portion of workplace accidents. The most common injury types as the result of slips , trips or falls are usually to the back, ankles or wrists that can leave employees with long term issues, and in extreme cases effect their quality of life. In 2006/07 in Australia, approximately 20% of all serious workers compensation claims was the result of a slip, trip or fall type of incident.

Slips, Trips and Falls. Why Managers Should Care?

Legally, socially and morally as a manger it should be your highest priority to keep your employees safe. An employee that suffers a long term work related injury cannot only be demoralizing to a workplace; the financial cost is estimated on average to be $5000 and 21 days off for the employee. This compensation figure only covers a small percentage of the costs. It does not account for indirect costs, such as:

  • The time to process and manage the injury
  • Increased workloads for other staff to perform the injured person's work
  • Loss of expertise and necessary skills and additional training for replacement staff
  • Decreased productivity
  • The human aspect of pain and suffering.

Effective strategies to prevent slips, trips and falls are usually simple, inexpensive and lead to both immediate and long-term benefits, increased productivity and reduced compensation costs. The following pages within this section provides a good starting point
