If second-hand plant is to be used for scrap or spare parts, the supplier must inform the person they are supplying the second-hand plant to that the plant is being supplied as scrap or spare SAFE WORK AUSTRALIA MEMBERS’ MEETING 6 30 SEPTEMBER 2010 PAGE 37 OF 52

parts and that the plant in its current form is not to be used as plant. This must be done in writing or by marking the item of plant. Suppliers should identify any components of the plant that are unserviceable, or arrange to have this done by a competent person. The components of the plant that are unserviceable may constitute a hazard in the operation of the plant. If plant is identified as not fully serviceable, you should inform the purchaser that the plant should not be used until the plant is fully serviceable.

7 SPECIFIC RISK CONTROLS 7.1 Confined spaces The design, manufacture or modification of any plant or structure that includes a confined space is critical. Thoughtful design can eliminate the need to enter a confined space or eliminate the risk of inadvertent entry and will therefore eliminate the associated risks. R. 64: Designers, manufacturers and suppliers of plant or structures must eliminate the need to enter a confined space and eliminate the risk of inadvertent entry. If this is not reasonably practicable, then: the need for any person enter the space must be minimised so far as is reasonably practicable the space must be designed with a safe means of entry and exit, and the risk to the health and safety of any person who enters the space must be eliminated or minimised as far as is reasonably practicable. The following features should be incorporated in the design and manufacturing stages: use of lining materials that are durable, require minimal cleaning and do not react with materials contained in the confined space design of mechanical parts to provide for safe and easy maintenance, to reduce the need for persons to enter, and access points (including those within the confined space, through divisions, partitions or obstructions) should be large enough to allow people wearing the necessary protective clothing and equipment to pass through, and to permit the rescue of all people who may enter the confined space. Further guidance on confined spaces is available in the Code of Practice: Confined Spaces . 7.2 Manual tasks R. 61: Designers and manufacturers must: design the plant to eliminate the need to carry out a hazardous manual task where this is not reasonably practicable, minimise the risk of musculoskeletal disorders arising from hazardous manual tasks provide adequate information about the features of the plant that eliminate or minimise the need for any hazardous manual task to be carried out.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
