Reducing the risk for your workshop business
Levanta’s consultants, along with our design & fabrication team, have looked through the Australian Standards and consulted with Safety Inspectors nationally to try to come up with an acceptable advice article, as there is nothing in OHS legislation that specifies the requirements for lighting, power, extraction or other safety measures in a pit. That’s why it’s necessary that you ensure a risk assessment is carried out for your business.
It is however important to note the Act and Regulations which form law:
Reference can be made to Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984 – Sect 19 for unguarded vehicle pits and safe systems of work and REG 3.11 for signage and warnings for falls into the pit.
Under the Act, employers have a duty of care to provide a safe working environment.
