Safety First at Stronghold Hire

Here at Stronghold Hire, we always make safety our top priority. We believe that everyone should be able to go home at the end of the day without any harm.

Safety in Construction

In the construction industry, safety is crucial to prevent accidents, injuries and fatalities. This involves identifying and mitigating potential hazards, implementing safety policies and procedures, providing appropriate training and personal protective equipment to workers, and conducting regular inspections to ensure compliance with safety standards. At Stronghold Hire, we are dedicated to ensuring the safety of our team and those around us.

Safety Measures Construction Sites - Stronghold Hire

Safety Measures on Construction Sites

Working on construction sites, especially on scaffolding, can be risky due to heavy machinery, power tools and working at heights. As an employer, you have a legal obligation to ensure the safety of your workers and visitors to the site. You can take safety measures such as maintaining equipment, reporting hazards, providing safety signage, and implementing fall protection systems to minimise risks. Workers must be trained in safety procedures and the use of personal protective equipment, such as hard hats, safety glasses, and steel-toed boots.

Regular safety inspections and audits are also crucial to identify areas for improvement and ensure compliance with safety regulations. Effective communication and collaboration between employers, workers, and regulators can promote safety in the construction industry.

Safety While Working at Heights

While some things in life are out of our control, safety while working at heights doesn’t have to be. We can manage and minimise risks by identifying and acting on potential hazards. At Stronghold Hire, we prioritise safety in all aspects of our work, including when working on scaffolding or installing edge protection.

To help prevent falls from heights and limit the dangers of working at heights, we at Stronghold Hire provide scaffolding and edge protection. Our installations are carried out by qualified scaffolders and comply with scaffold standards AS/NZS 4576 and AS/NZS 1576, as well as edge rail standard AS/NZS-4494.2. We regularly maintain our equipment and tools to ensure they are in proper working order.
