Thanks Michael, yes I have seen it. The laws in Oz actually allow ladders as work platforms for light work only, work that may be performed with one hand because 3 points of contact must be maintained at all times and the body must remained within the ladder stringers. Additionally, ladders must be secured top and bottom, plus no one may ascend further than the third topmost rung of a step ladder. So, Safe T Climb, fine thing that it is, may not be used. As I said earlier my company goes further than the law and bans all ladder use, except for acces (and in most cases we use scaffold) or where there is no practical alternative. I actually can't remember the last time we had a 'fall from height' incident.
Description:Gaps, incorrect or incomplete implementation of safety functionality can delay or make the certification/approval of medical products impossible. Most activities cannot be retroactively performed since they are closely linked into the development lifecycle. Diligent, complete and correct implementation of risk management from the start of product development is therefore imperative. This course will introduce all necessary steps to design, implement and test critical medical devices…See More
A few sciences are changing our lives in more ways than we could have imagined a few decades ago. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is at the forefront of these. Although a few decades old, it has received a huge boost of late with the emergence of the cloud, which is set to help it overcome one of its biggest stumbling blocks, namely space, the added power of computing, and wider methods of algorithms.While one would like to associate AI with robotics, this is taking a very limited view of a topic…See More
