Working Near Water Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App
Caution should always be taken when working water - especially ponds, ditches, streams, rivers or other bodies of water.
How does it work?
Hazards are present for workers such as landscape engineers or in many workplaces including pond maintenance, grass cutting near bodies of water, or construction workers repairing water pipes or drain pipes. Drowning is also a concern, especially for non-swimmers, but other hazardous conditions such as slips, falls or fast currents or waves can also be risk. Shock hyperthermia, impact with submerged or floating debris. Serious illnesses can be caused by waterborne contaminants such as blue green algae, leptospirosis, tetanus, toxic bacteria, chemical pollution, or sewage or animal feces. Flooding is also a water hazard and can affect work activities. Risk assessments are listed in the Working with Working Near Water Toolbox Talk (UK) app and can be lifesaving!
