RISK ON WORKING NEAR ON WATER



The following procedures are recommended for all water work including, but not limited to, fountains, ponds, rivers, lakes, swamps, bogs, and oceans.

For work to be performed near water and more than four feet or more from pool edge, sufficient barricades need to erect away from the pool edge by using traffic cones, hoardings, plastic fencing, or caution tape to serve as a warning system when a worker unintentionally approaches the pool edge.

When working over water at any location, at least two people need to remain within sight and sound of each other at all times. They will require constant access to a moored boat or life raft.

For work to be performed above water and/or within water edge, another worker who can immediately summon emergency rescue must stand guard.

When it is necessary for personnel to work in fast moving rivers, downstream personal protective equipment (PPE) such as life vests and safety equipment such as ropes need to ensure. An emergency rescue plan must be in place.

Guardrails need to be provided, to the greatest extent practical, along open edges in order to protect against falls from height or into the water.

All electrical installations and equipment should be constructed, installed, operated, protected and maintained to prevent the risk of danger from electric shock or burns.
Every part of the installation where people work should be adequately lit by natural or artificial light.

When working near WATER, check:

ØIf necessary you are wearing life jackets?
ØIf necessary you are wearing appropriate harness?
ØCan you use battery-operated hand tools?
ØAny electrical equipment used are connected to a safety switch?
ØThere are no trailing leads or flexes?
ØSafety and survival equipment is nearby?


Certified and properly sized flotation devices must be worn by any guard and all workers working above water or pool edge. Prior to each use, the flotation devices must be inspected for defects which would alter their strength, buoyancy, or fastening capability.
