Fence Installation Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA) Mobile App
There are various different types of fences out there, and installing them can pose different risks - for example, barbed wire fencing poses a risk due to the nature of the fencing material, while wooden fencing may pose a risk due to the weight and volume of wooden posts.
How does it work?
In trying to establish safety requirements for workers, it is necessary that a comprehensive risk assessment for potential hazards be performed. This Fence Installation Activity Hazard Analysis (AHA) app is an excellent tool to help promote the safety and well-being of workers installing fences. The app helps to create a robust and effective safety plan for employees and contractors alike. Using the AHA, the user notes every job activity, and every step or task associated with each activity. Potential hazards for each step or task are identified and noted, and potential control measures are also identified - this can include the use of personal protective equipment such as safety glasses or gloves when cutting and handling materials, to proper digging technique to avoid back injuries. This safety analysis is helpful for any fencing operation and ensures that all procedures of work activities are analyzed as a part of a comprehensive safety program.
