How to Install a Lintel in a Brick Wall
Workplace Health and Safety has conducted a comprehensive hazard analysis for lintel installation, e.g. how to install a lintel in a brick wall and developed risk control measures per the hierarchy of controls for identified hazards.
Assess and review WHS practices in the workplace to control risk
WHS consultation with employees on health and safety matters to identify potential hazards with lintels for brickwork
Risk assessment to identify workplace hazards and risks that could result in death or serious injury
Health and safety planning for how to install a lintel, e.g. minimise risks through the planning process
WHS consultation and participation processes ensure adequate health and safety communication
Workplace environmental hazards, e.g. trenches and excavations, falling from height, lack of edge protection
Trip hazards in the workplace likely to result in slips trips and falls injuries
Implementation of controls for lintel construction, e.g. isolation of hazards, personal protective equipment, safety measures to prevent falls
Health and safety at work information for employees to manage risk and compliance
Tools and equipment used in brickwork lintel construction, e.g. cement mixer, rotary hammer drill, angle grinder
Install lintel for brick opening, e.g. brick lintel per brick lintel detail for lintel construction
Temporary propping of brick lintel, e.g. formwork props per brickwork construction methods
Dismantle propping, e.g. formwork props from the underside of brick wall lintel
Working at height on scaffolding, brickies scaffolding and bricklayer scaffolding when installing a steel lintel in a brick wall
Hazardous chemicals used in connection with lintel construction, e.g. Portland cement, de-hydrated lime, plasticizer
Hazardous manual tasks in connection with lintel construction
Personal protective equipment, e.g. construction gloves, hard hat for construction work, protective equipment PPE
WHS training for workers, e.g. health and safety training for lintel construction
Workplace housekeeping incorporating material handling and storage safety
Legislative and regulatory requirements for compliance with WHS legislation, e.g. work health and safety regulations, code of practice construction work and brick standards
Monitoring controls, e.g. assessment and review the effectiveness of control measures
Brickwork tasks and activities in connection with brick wall construction
How to Install a Lintel
Lintel construction work method statement shall assess the risk of construction high-risk activities for installing a steel lintel in a brick wall.
High-risk work activities that may expose workers to WHS hazards are likely to include but not be limited to:
Plant and equipment used in the work task
Work at height, e.g. fall from heights
Use of hand and power tools
Hazards in lifting operations when lifting steel lintels for brickwork
Other hazards with installing a steel lintel in a brick wall
