SOP Cordless Concrete Vibrator

Workplace Health and Safety has conducted a comprehensive job safety analysis for operating a cordless concrete vibrator 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 concrete vibrator and ensure cordless tool safety

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

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

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

  • Cordless tools and equipment, e.g. cordless concrete vibrator 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 concrete vibrator for protection where there is an exposed nip point. Only remove equipment guards for cordless tool storage

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

  • Inspect concrete vibrator needle for signs of wear and damage per vibrator safety checklist, replace if necessary and dispose of a damaged concrete vibrator needle appropriately

  • Concrete vibrator operation per cordless concrete vibrator SOP focuses on WHS issues and the implementation of control measures to reduce risks

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

  • Potential environmental hazards in the workplace, e.g. confined space and working at heights

  • Work at height on ladders, aluminium mobile scaffold and elevated work platforms when operating a concrete vibrator

  • Hazardous chemicals and hazardous products used in connection with using a concrete vibrator

  • Hazardous manual tasks in connection with compacting concrete using vibrator

  • Vibrator PPE, e.g. personal protective equipment clothing, ppe ear protection, protective hand gear, work safety boots, eye protection safety glasses

  • Health and safety training for workers, e.g. tool safety 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 operating a cordless concrete vibrator

Concrete Vibrator Safe Operating Procedure

How to Use a Concrete Vibrator

Cordless concrete vibrator SOP shall assess the risk of high-risk activities with operating a concrete vibrator.

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 vibrator

  • Pre start inspection of cordless concrete vibrator

  • Change concrete vibrator needle

  • Cordless battery charging using a cordless battery charger

  • Other hazards with using a cordless concrete vibrator
