Management, Supervision and our Work Crews

Sparkies Electrical Contracting Services Pty Ltd is a small sized company with two (2) Company Directors, who have a combined experience in the industry spanning more than sixty years. Both are licensed electricians with extensive experience in the electrical industry.

Sparkies Electrical Contracting Services Pty Ltd contributes to widening the skills base of our industry by supporting the employment of apprentices, and we have a policy of always engaging fully qualified trades people with electrical trade qualifications as well as communications experience where possible.

Whilst we seldom need to engage contractors, we encourage the use of subcontractors in regional areas because this provides an expedient service to our clients, for example emergency situations in the building industry. It also encourages local skills especially in rural areas.

Needless to say any contractors used by our Company must be qualified trades people and they are required to uphold standards including OH and S standards that match our own. Where engaged, they are usually supplementary to our own personnel on any job.

Our work crews (for example in a floor fit-out) generally number 2-6 personnel and are multi-skilled so that their level of competence enables each to supervise work.

Barry Flanagan
Director

Consultation and Training

Our Directors are responsible for ensuring correct procedures and precautions so they are communicated and implemented on each project. They are also responsible for implementing an annual training program involving all personnel which includes safety training and safety refresher training. Anyone representing our Company and carrying out work on site will have been trained through the WorkCover OHS Induction training course as a minimum.

Each service van has a First Aid Kit with them and will ensure it is at the work site at all times while work is being undertaken. 

Plant and Substances

Our Company generally uses the following plant and substances some of which is referred to in our Job Safety Analysis:

  • Vehicles all equipped with basic first aid kits and fire blankets
  • Electric power tools incl. angle grinders, drills, non-explosive ramset drills, kangos, jig saws, drop saws and circular saws
  • Mobile scaffold and Elevated Work Platforms
  • Fibreglass Ladders
  • Hand tools

Substances: 

  • Occasional use of silicon sealant and fire retardant sealant 

In keeping with occupational health and safety legislation, where we use materials of a chemical or substance nature such as silicon sealant, we have attached copy of the Material Safety Data Sheets. Copies of these MSDS are also kept with the work team on site.

The Work Method and Job Safety Analysis section of this Safe Work Method  Statement indicates if/where any chemicals or substances are to be used, and draws on information in the MSDSs to Identify Hazards, Assess Risks, and apply appropriate Control Measures.

All our equipment and plant is checked prior to use and is subject to a regular maintenance schedule as per manufacturers’ recommendations with up to date log books. In addition, employees are advised to visually check tools, plant and equipment before use and to report any defects to the Company through the job supervisor. Attached to this Safe Work Method Statement is a maintenance summary sheet showing the plant to be used on this project and details of servicing of this equipment. It summarizes information drawn from properly kept log books which can be inspected at any time. All equipment that is hired must be serviced and backed up with service records from the hirer, and hirers are required to provide instructions or a briefing on use. For example hiring companie’s  have trained some of our personnel in safe operation of Elevated Work Platforms to 11m.

All electrical items of plant are tested and tagged monthly, and each van has an Earth Leakage (EL) box in store.

All ladders meet Australian Standards.

All testing equipment is calibrated annually.

Barry Flanagan
Director

Personal Protective Equipment

It is our policy that where Material Safety Data Sheets recommend the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), the recommended PPE conforming to Australian Standards is issued. Company Management is responsible for the issue/replacement of all items of PPE as well as being responsible in  instructing employees in the correct use and care of PPE. Personnel are each provided with a Safety Kit which contains PPE listed below as well as the NECA Safety Guide and a First Aid kit.

A register is maintained of all PPE issued and employees are directed to use the following items of PPE on site :

  • Harnesses with Cherry pickers
  • Safety Helmets
  • Appropriate Safety Footwear
  • Eye Protective Goggles or full face shield where required
  • Hearing Protection where required
  • Dust Masks
  • PCB removal PPE includes equipment recommended by ANZECC Guidelines such as special face masks, gloves, creams, cartridge respirators and disposable overalls

It is recognized that PPE generally is not always the best control measure for risks. Accordingly, following risk assessment we will endeavor to implement engineering controls – that is, to eliminate or otherwise substitute hazards of a lesser risk or adopt controls of a higher order rather than depend on the use of PPE.

Apart from specific tasks requiring particular items of PPE listed, all personnel are required to wear Safety Helmets and appropriate Safety Clothing.

Accident/Incident Reporting

It is our Company’s policy to have all injuries reported and to ensure adequate recording of all details for the purpose of meeting Workers Compensation requirements, and requirements under the Notification of Accidents Regulation.

 In addition, we require information to be recorded in our First Aid book located at Head Office, covering all accidents or incidents and dangerous occurrences.

It is the role of all our Directors to investigate any matter that is reported and to ensure that corrective action is initiated.

Insurance’s 

Sparkies Electrical Contracting Services Pty Ltd has up to date Workers Compensation Insurance for all of its employees.

We are insured with:

Workcover Queensland                       Policy # WNA081001014

We also have Public Liability Insurance to the value of $10m with

QBE Insurance Australia Ltd              Policy # 02 A177446 BPK 

Alcohol, Drugs and Smoking on site

Our Company takes a strict view and will discipline personnel if necessary where personnel use Alcohol or Drugs of a non-prescriptive nature on site. We also support the view that there should not be any smoking by personnel on site.

Waste Disposal and General Housekeeping

We accept the responsibility in ensuring that our work site is maintained in a “tidy” state, and it is recognized that attention to housekeeping/cleanup is a safety matter.

Asbestos and PCBs

Sparkies Electrical Contracting Services Pty Ltd is not involved in asbestos removal and will not carry out any work that may involve disturbing asbestos material.

It is the responsibility of our client to undertake asbestos surveys and to arrange safe removal of asbestos where this is required.

If however, any Sparkies Electrical Contracting Services Pty Ltd personnel suspects the existence of asbestos and considers that it may be disturbed or otherwise pose hazard, he is advised to report the matter to management who will discuss the issue with the client and determine a management strategy.

Under no circumstance must any of our personnel be exposed to the risk of asbestos fibre inhalation.

Polychlorinated Biphenyls or PCBs are occasionally removed as part of Sparkies Electrical Contracting Services Pty Ltd brief. In such circumstances, we engage a licensed carrier to pick up PCB material and to provide a disposal service. In the case of major PCB removal work capacitors will be removed from site by approved and licensed waste disposal carriers. In the case of minor PCB removal work, B S Flanagan Electrical Contractors will remove PCBs and transfer these in sealed bins to its workshop for subsequent removal by approved and licensed waste disposal carriers.

Both WorkCover and Environmental provisions for the removal, handling and disposal of PCBs are taken as minimum, and we follow the ANZECC guidelines for identification, handling and disposal of PCBs. (See Job Safety Analysis)

The approved carrier issues a Certificate of Destruction to certify that PCBs have been disposed of in an approved manner.

Barry Flanagan
Director

Risks and Job Safety Analysis

Our Risk Assessment of Fit-out Tasks, Servicing Tasks and Removal of PCBs indicates whether hazards are considered as being of High, Medium or Low Risk [HR, MR, LR] before Control Measures are to be applied. 

HR represents the risk of a fatality or permanent disablement occurring.

MR represents the risk of a serious injury or illness developing where the person affected is off work (Lost Time Injury) for a minimum of seven continuous days and the accident is reportable to WorkCover.

LR represents the need for First Aid and a momentary pause in work – these injuries are not considered serious enough to be detailed here.

As a minimum, we apply Control Measures based on requirements of OH and S legislation as well those based on the recommendations of Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) provided by suppliers/manufacturers of materials and substances as per Section 18 of the NSW Occupational Health and Safety Act.

 

Testing can involve hazards where switchboards are being tested. HR – Electrocution Work to be carried out with two workers. Extreme caution to be exercised and approved rubber safety gloves must be worn.
Clean up may involve some dust or sharp edges LR – MR Dust inhalation causing long term respiratory ailments and sharp edges may cut hands. See above for masks. Gloves are available and staff are required to wear these where risk of hand injuries could result when cleaning up.

Removal of Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)

Tasks: Removal of PCBs that are split and leaking or else removal of undamaged PCBs usually from above ceiling tiles and found in light fittings

Hazards Risks Control Measures/th>
Hazards can include live power, use of ladders, trip hazards, sharp edges, presence of other trades. LR-HR Risks include electrocution, falls, falls of materials onto others, trip injuries, cuts to hands, interference from other trades. Power must be disconnected. Ladders are usually to be step –ladders for stability and we discourage any activity that dies not allow three limbs to be in contact with the ladder at all times.
Ladders must be clear of doorways or else doors must be locked. Combined Electrical liaises with the building manager to ensure overlap with other work or workers can be avoided through proper planning.
Handling of PCB’s HR- Absorption, ingestion, inhalation of PCB vapours or contamination from PCB liquids. Work must not continue if there are other workers nearby that can be affected by PCB removal work. Areas must be kept tidy to minimize trip hazards and must be cleaned regularly. Gloves are provided for use where hand cuts may occur.

( 1 ) Where PCB capacitor is not damaged and is not leaking, gloves must be worn and PCB’s or capacitors are split and leaking, they are not to be handled unless all protective procedures are in place as per the ANZECC guidelines which all personnel are made familiar with. These guidelines include use of special cartridge respirators, gloves, creams, disposable overalls.

Testing can involve hazards where switchboards are being tested. HR- Electrocution Work to be carried out with two workers. Extreme caution to be exercised and approved rubber safety gloves must be worn.
Clean up may involve dust or sharp edges. LR-MR Dust inhalation causing long term respiratory ailments and sharp edges may cut hands. Personnel are instructed to wear dust protection masks that have been made available and that meet Australian Standards for the purpose. Gloves are available and staffs are required to wear these where risk of hand injuries could result when cleaning up.
Hand over to client does not involve any hazards.

Servicing

Tasks: Servicing faulty power points, attending to power breakdowns and servicing signage or fluorescent tubes. NB this work rarely exceeds half a day’s duration.

Hazards Risks Control Measures
Servicing of faulty power points or light tubes may encounter hazards that include live power, use of ladders, trip hazards, sharp edges, ceiling dust, use of power tools, presence of other people including members of the public or staff of the client. LR – HR Risk include electrocution, falls, falls of materials onto others and consequent injury, trip injuries, cuts to hands, dust inhalation and possible respiratory ailments and interference with / from others. Power must be disconnect or where power tools are used, electric current must be protected by earth leakage devices and leads must have current test tags. Ladders are usually to be step-ladders for stability and we discourage any activity that does not allow three limbs to be in contact with the ladder at all times. Ladders must be clear of doorways or else doors must be locked. Combined Electrical leases with the building manager to ensure overlap with other work or workers can be avoided through proper planning. Work must not continue if there are other workers nearby that can be affected. Barrier tape is used to delineate work zones and keep others out of work areas.
In high bay light fitting areas, Elevated Work Platforms (scissor lifts) may be utilized and work carried out in warehouse can be exposed to forklift traffic. LR –HR Unsafe operation and consequent physical injury or forklift collision injuries. All personnel using EWP’s will be trained in safe use and liaison with warehouse management will ensure that forklift traffic will be halted or diverted during works.
Where power breakdowns occur either affecting a whole building or bank branch as an example, an assessment needs to be made as to whether the breakdown is an energy authority issue. HR- Electrocution is the main risk. Where possible it is preferable to carry out of hours so as to disconnect power without inconveniencing the client. Where it is totally unavoidable to work with live power, Work Cover guidelines will be followed and extreme caution must be exercised. Only trained and component personnel will work on live power and will only work where suitable protective equipment can be used eg.fibre glass or timber ladders, rubber mats, rubber gloves
Cable work can also create dust because of the need to cut / drill gyprock and also may present trip hazards when being fed from coils. LR – MR Dust inhalation causing long term respiratory ailments and sharp edges may cut hands. Personnel are instructed to wear dust protection masks that have been made available and that meet Australian Standards for the purpose. Gloves are available and staff are required to wear these where risk of hand injuries could results when cleaning up.
Testing can involve hazards where switchboards are being tested. HR – Electrocution Work to be carried out with two workers. Extreme caution to be exercised and approved rubber safety gloves must be worn.
Clean up may involve dust or sharp edges.
Hand over to client does not involve any hazards.

Fit-out

Tasks: Assess work on site, take delivery of gear, materials and equipment on site, stripping out tasks, roughing and running in of cables, final fit-out, testing, and final clean up, hand over.

Hazards Risks Control Measures
There are not hazards normally associated with
assessing work on site
Where material or gear and equipment need to be moved to the workshop or to site, hazards are usually related to weights or dimensions. Most material or gear are not hazardous to move except for lock up boxes which require moving and loading or unloading to trucks and on site or pallets in our warehouse. MR Manual handling injuries. Use of trolley or team lifting is specified to staff. We insist on a twoman lift to load/unload lock up tool boxes in association with trolleys or wheels – all lock up boxes have wheels. Large rolls of cables are team handled.
Stripping out tasks involves light fittings or cables & making safe. Hazards can involve live power, use of ladders, trip hazards, sharp edges, presence of other trades. LR – HR Risks include electrocution, falls, falls of material onto others, trip injuries, cuts to hands, interference from other trades. Power must be disconnected. Ladders are usually to be step ladders for stability and we discourage any activity that does not allow three limbs to be in contact with the ladder at all times. Ladders must be clear of doorways or else doors must be locked. Combined Electrical liaises with the building manager to ensure overlap with other work or workers can be avoided through proper planning. Work must not continue if there are other workers nearby that can be affected by stripping out work. Areas must be kept tidy to minimize trip hazards and must be cleaned regularly. Gloves are provided for use where hand cuts may occur.
Roughing in & running in of cables mostly above ceiling tiles, and final fit-out. This involves fixing centenary wire and can expose workers to live power, hazards from working with ladders, presence of other trades, dust form above ceiling tiles, dust from previous demolition or building works. HR – Electrocution Power must be disconnected.

Risk Assessment

The following LEGEND is to clarify accident risk and type in the workplace:

ACCIDENT RISK LEGEND

CLASS 1 =    HIGH RISK

Loss of life, loss of limbs, spinal injuries, major head injuries, etc.

CLASS 2 =    MEDIUM RISK

Deep abrasions, burns to third degree of body, broken bones, etc.

CLASS 3 =    LOW RISK

Scratches, minor cuts, minor abrasions, minor burns, etc.

Any of the above accidents are not what Sparkies Electrical Contracting Services Pty Ltd wants in the workplace. Please make sure you follow this safety plan, and if in doubt ask your supervisor.

EMPLOYEE PROTECTION – TO PREVENT

CLASS 1, CLASS 2, CLASS 3 ACCIDENTS

  1. Take extreme care when working at or near electrical switchboards.
  2. Never work on live switchboards.
  3. Never work on live circuits or equipment ( switch it off first ).
  4. Ensure that eye protection is worn where required ( ie.when using grinder etc.)
  5. Ensure that hearing protection is worn where required ( i.e. When using a jackhammer ).
  6. Ensure that proper respirator protection is worn where the dust level causes discomfort or the material data sheet requires the use.
  7. Never leave any live cables unprotected or without a ‘DANGER ‘ tag.
  8. Always protect the public or others from falling objects ( i.e. Never leave objects on step ladder)
  9. Always provide barricade’s around the area you are working around the public.

EMPLOYEE PROTECTION- TO PREVENT

CLASS 1, CLASS 2, CLASS 3 ACCIDENTS

To prevent employees or others from falling, the following will need to be enforced on all sites:

  1. Always use scaffold where possible.
  2. No employee is to work off a step ladder higher then 1.8 meters. If required to work higher than 1.8 meters a suitable scaffold will need to be installed complete with hand rails and a platform. The scaffold is to fully comply with the scaffold code, and it must have kick boards fitted.
  3. Step ladder and scaffolding shall be inspected every week for any defects. If any are detected they are to be removed from the site immediately.
  4. When use of a scaffold is not possible, an approved safety devise may be used ( e.g. safety harness ).

 

ELECTRICAL SAFETY PLAN TO PREVENT

CLASS 1, CLASS 2, CLASS 3 ACCIDENT

A majority of Combined Electrical Contractors work is in existing, occupied buildings. There is a possibility of contact with live wires. To prevent this risk, the following will need to be implemented.

  1. Before commencing work on site, a licensed electrician shall install temporary power supply, complete with earth leakage circuit breaker protection.
  2. All employees and others must make sure that all electrical tools and appliances are protected by an earth leakage circuit breaker.
  3. All unused electrical cables shall be removed before commencement of the project.
