  • Assess and review safety practices in the workplace to control risks

  • WHS consultation to identify potential hazards with the cable tray installation methodology

  • Risk assessment to identify workplace hazards and risks that could result in death or serious injury

  • Health and safety planning for electrical cable tray installation, e.g. minimise risks through the planning process

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

  • Workplace environmental hazards, e.g. working in confined spaces

  • Trip hazards in the workplace likely to result in slips trips and falls injuries

  • Implementation of control measures for cable tray installation, e.g. isolation of hazards and services

  • Safety information for employees to manage risks

  • Tools and equipment used to install cable tray systems, supports and brackets

  • Cutting tools to cut cable tray installation materials

  • Erect cable tray per cable tray installation drawings, e.g. cable tray ladder and unistrut

  • Secure cable tray installation per cable tray installation standards, fixings per cable tray installation drawings

  • Manual handling of cable tray materials when undertaking cable tray installation work

  • Hazardous chemicals, e.g. chemical anchors, used to support cable tray systems

  • Personal protective equipment PPE, e.g. height safety equipment and electrical safety gear

  • Working at height on ladders, mobile scaffold and elevated work platforms when undertaking cable tray installation work

  • Health and safety training for workers, e.g. electrical safe work practices training

  • Workplace housekeeping incorporating material handling and storage safety

  • Legislative and regulatory requirements for compliance with WHS legislation, e.g. codes of practice and workplace standards
