UK weather patterns are infamously difficult to predict. As flooding, storms and erratic weather conditions becoming increasingly more common, it’s even more important that companies with sites outdoors are on top of their on-site equipment checks.
Prevention is always better than repair from a financial, operations and employee wellbeing perspective. Contractors and employees responsible for on-site safety are being encouraged to increase the frequency of their equipment checks to ensure the working environment is not compromised by storms, floods, frost or fog.
One way to resolve this is a simple daily spot check and the adoption of an Equipment Tagging System to display which equipment is unsafe or inoperable.
The weather affects different equipment in different ways. With years of experience developing solutions for various types of equipment, Scafftag has seen the effects of weather changing conditions and has compiled a list of warnings to consider:
Scafftag offer one-to-one sessions to help map out company’s current equipment management processes and identify any issues.
The sessions will provide the tools to help meet compliance requirements and legal responsibilities; with examples available to view from its database of thousand of bespoke Tagging System designs.
