Before going for the task Risk Assessments and Hazard Identification are to be carried out and no one shall enter into a confined space unless there is a standard system of work in place that have been planned, organised, implemented and regularly monitored, maintained so as to render that work safe and without risk to health. All the entrants of the confined space must be provided with information of the task to be carried out.


the industrial sector safety is a very precious and important aspect of an Industry or Factory, as an accident or injury free workplace environment will generate a positive morale among the employees working in hazardous situations.

While carrying out the activity ensure that there is railing or other fall protection barricade systems in place. This provision has no need of training or other equipment as the railing will naturally help workers to keep themselves free of danger. As it is not possible for all the works at height to provide or make fall protection barricade systems available, it is very important to use job specific Personal Protective equipment’s and selection of the appropriate PPE’s such as a standard full body harnesses that meet the high quality standards despite of cost and also use of personal fall arrest systems and additionally as the task is pre planned determine what you really as per the situation and if you have a task where workers do welding at heights, then the nylon based harness will not have the heat resistance you need. Kevlar based harness which have a better resistance to heat will be suitable for the task.
