  • 安全訊息Safety Message - Lifting Operation 將軍澳工地發生的一宗吊運事故 20180602

    SRSO NEWS

     

    Dear member,

     

    We forward the following email regarding the above subject from CIC for your information.



    致:

    建造安全專責委員會

    工地安全事故專責小組

    維修、保養、改建及加建工地之工作安全專責小組

    升降機槽工作的工地安全專責小組

    貨車式起重機工作安全專責小組

    竹棚架工作安全專責小組

    安全體驗訓練中心專責小組

     

     

    建造業議會就近日一將軍澳發生的吊運有關的事故與有關的工會及各小組委員會相討後大家同意即時以電郵、Whatapps等 向所有會員發放以下訊息。

     

    ● 委任合資格人士就起重操作工序進行針對性的風險評估及制定起重操作計劃,尤其針對負荷物的大小、形狀和重量、吊運方法/索具裝配方法,以及工作環境所涉及的影響,找出所有影響起重操作工序安全的潛在危害;

    ● 委派一名合資格及具經驗的吊運督導人員監督起重操作以確保所有風險獲有效控制;

    ● 在合理切實可行範圍內盡量圍封所有吊運區,並展示適當的警告告示,以保障相關工人及其他可能受起重操作影響的人士的安全;若未能完全圍封吊運區,則須採取其他有效措施,例如委派足夠的看守員,確保無人擅自闖入吊運區;

    ● 確保指揮、懸掛及處理負荷物的所有工人,已接受有關索具使用/索具裝配原理的適當訓練,能挑選適合吊起負荷物的起重裝置和起吊方法/索具裝配方法;在起重操作進行時負荷物須安全穩固並且沒有滑脫或移位情況;及需確保沒有其他雜物,纏繞或堆積在負荷物其中而引起危險;

    ● 在正式進行起重操作前,吊運團隊應先進行試行吊運檢查,把負荷物吊起離地至一段合適距離及維持一段短時間,以確保起重機械和起重裝置及負荷物的平衡及穩定性;

    ● 有需要時提供備有帶鈎繩索或導繩,用以控制負荷物任何過度的擺動或轉動;同時起重操作的團隊需在起吊前檢查鈎繩索或導繩是處於安全位置及狀態,以確保該帶鈎繩索或導繩不會纏繞任何物件或身體部份而造成危險。

    ● 確保每一鏈條、纜索或其他起重裝置,在使用前已由合資格檢驗員測試及徹底檢驗,並取得按認可格式發出的證明書,而該名合資格檢驗員在證明書內已述明該鏈條、纜索或其他起重裝置均處於安全操作狀態;

    ● 確保起重機只由持有有效並適用於該起重機所屬種類的證書持有人操作,每當起重機操作員視野受阻,未能清晰看見負荷物及其附近範圍時,便須派駐訊號員;

    ● 為起重機操作員及參與起重操作的團隊提供足夠的資料、指導及訓練,以確保他們熟悉有關的安全施工程序及安全措施;以及

    ● 制定及實施有效的監督及管理制度,以確保上述所有的安全措施得以嚴格遵從

     

     

    以上只列出安全重點,詳細內容請參工廠及工業經營(起重機械及起重裝置)規例 及由建造業議會發出的安全提示-001/18 起重操作的安全(20181月)
