Safety rules at the workplace
It is normal to be surprised when you see us from the bottom of the road working at a high altitude with the double safety rope technique: thanks to the ability of our operators to carry out, with apparent simplicity, often complex operations that require attention and accuracy. Our interventions without scaffolding are certainly spectacular, but it is only; knowing all the preparation that is behind each of our single work that you can appreciate our professionalism even more.
The company policy of EdiliziAcrobatica is oriented towards standards of excellence in terms of quality and safety, aspects that characterise all our work activities, which is why we have obtained such prestigious certifications issued by Bureau Veritas, a leader in control, verification and certification for Quality, Health and Safety, Environment and Social Responsibility.
Obviously we are always educated on the latest updates on safety on construction sites and on the prevention of possible problems: we scrupulously follow all the reference standards for safety in the workplace: because we do not only take care of you and your home, but also of all the EdiliziaAcrobatiche people involved in all our activities.
The safety at work for construction companies is a fundamental principle, not only for the people who request our intervention, it is a guarantee in the commitment and protection of the health of EA workers: the main reference legislation is found in the Legislative Decree n. 81 of 9 April 2008, Consolidated Law on Safety at Work, and its subsequent amendments and additions. The Consolidated Law specifies the objectives and obligations that every company must necessarily comply with in order to avoid sanctions. Moreover, there are various reference standards governing fire-fighting training courses (Ministerial Decree of 10 March 1998) and company first aid course (the Ministerial Decree 388 of 2003).
Legislative Decree 81/08 introduces obligations for the employer and rights for workers. In particular, the employer’s obligations include:
- Assessment of company risks
- Subsequent appointment of persons in charge of firefighting and first aid.
Activities aimed at controlling sources of danger and managing risks are very important for companies operating in the construction sector: the sector is particular and it is necessary to pay the utmost attention to these aspects in order to avoid any type of mishap.
The safety regulations in the workplace identify the necessary measures to ensure the protection of health in the workplace:
- Education and training of its employees.
- Constant assessments on the conditions and individual skills of the rope-access workers with the aim of certifying the real conditions.
- Planning and implementation of courses, protocols and measures useful to ensure the safety of all the people involved.
- Provide the correct devices of protection.
- Putting into practice preventive measures such as the assessment of any risks for the safety of people, and, consequently, take all the appropriate measures to keep under control emergency situations.
