Standard Operating Procedure Cordless Concrete Saw

Workplace Health and Safety has conducted a comprehensive job safety analysis for operating a cordless concrete saw, e.g. cutting masonry concrete and how to change a concrete saw blade with risk control measures developed for identified hazards per WHS hierarchy of controls.

  • WHS consultation with employees on health and safety matters to identify potential hazards with operating a cordless concrete saw and ensure cordless tool safety

  • WHS consultation and participation processes ensure adequate health and safety communication

  • Pre operational checks on equipment per cordless concrete saw inspection checklist, e.g. inspect cordless concrete saw and equipment, and cordless battery and charger are free from damage such as battery leaking fluid

  • Cordless battery charging using a cordless charging station shall be based on a cordless concrete saw manufacturers recommendation

  • Cordless tools and equipment, e.g. cordless concrete saw identified as damaged shall have an out of service tag placed on it with procedures for reporting faulty equipment in the workplace implemented

  • Safety guarding must be fitted to a cordless demolition saw where there is an exposed nip point. Only remove equipment guards for cordless tool storage

  • Do not alter or modify a cordless concrete saw, e.g. removal of concrete saw handle will affect tool safety

  • Inspect concrete saw blade for signs of wear and damage per cordless concrete saw safety checklist, replace if necessary and dispose of damaged concrete saw blade appropriately

  • Concrete saw operation per cordless concrete saw SOP focuses on WHS issues and the implementation of control measures to reduce the risk from equipment hazards

  • Personal decontamination procedures to be implemented where exposure to silica has taken place, e.g. correct method for removing PPE

  • Workplace environmental hazards, e.g. confined space and working at heights

  • Hazardous chemicals and hazardous products used in connection with cordless concrete saw usage

  • Hazardous manual tasks in connection with using a cordless concrete saw

  • Cordless concrete saw PPE, e.g. respiratory protective equipment, personal protective clothing and equipment, safety earmuffs, ppe hard hat, ppe gloves, work boots non slip, eye protection ppe

  • Health and safety training for workers, e.g. cordless concrete saw training

  • Workplace housekeeping per housekeeping policy and procedures

  • Legislative and regulatory requirements for compliance with WHS legislation, e.g. work health and safety regulations, managing electrical risks at the workplace code of practice and power tool safety standards

  • Monitoring controls, e.g. assessment and review the effectiveness of control measures

  • Tasks and activities in connection with using a cordless concrete saw

Cordless Concrete Saw Safe Operating Procedure

How to Use Concrete Saw

Cordless concrete saw SOP shall assess the risk of high-risk activities with the operation of a cordless concrete saw.

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, e.g. cordless concrete saw

  • Pre start inspection of cordless concrete saw

  • Change concrete saw blade

  • Cordless battery charging using a cordless battery charger

  • Other hazards with using a cordless concrete saw
