Ladder safety is paramount to the well being of technicians, and AusDigi seeks to remind all technicians and staff that at all times :
Three points of contact must be maintained on a ladder.
At no time may a person straddle a ladder or stand on the top rungs.
Scaffold should be used when possible and permissible.
A spotter should always be present when operating EWP’s.
Only a licensed operator may use an EWP, and only a licensed rigger may erect scaffold.
Platform ladders must be used when a scaffold or EWP is unable to be used.
Only persons certified for working at heights should be working at height.
If lifting screens or heavy objects, use a dedicated lifting device for this purpose.
Where possible a fir for purpose harness should be worn at all times.
Please ensure you are safe at heights, and contact us any time you feel uncertain about a working at heights situation.
