Risk assessments start with rating the risks into high, medium and low taking into consideration the frequency of access and the consequence of an incident using a customised risk matrix. All existing control mechanisms are identified and their compliance is checked against Australian Standards and the Building Code of Australia. Finally, using the hierarchy of control, a final plan is drawn to include recommendations of future controls to be implemented to bring the facility to height safety compliance.
Height safety compliance.
Whether it's still a concept on paper, a new build, or an existing building or structure, All Areas Access consult with clients at every stage of a facility's life cycle to ensure height safety compliance. We won't just tell you what you want to know, we will tell you all the things you NEED to know as a facility manager, owner or operator.
