B Part 13 Demolition

  1. 1. Hazards & Control Measures
  2. 2. The CDM Regs 1994 apply to all demolition & dismantlement work
  3. 3. Falling from height  Falls through openings & fragile materials  Uncontrolled/premature collapse  Noise  Flying debris  HAVS from tools  Whole body vibration from vehicles 
  4. 4. Cause nearby structures to collapse  Live services – gas, electric, water  Fire  Broken glass from windows  Unguarded machinery  Floods  Electric shock  Manual Handling 
  5. 5. Dust  Asbestos  Silica  Residual contamination from previous use?  E.g. hospitals, industrial processes
  6. 6. Risk Assessment  Competent, trained staff  Safe system of work (derived from RA)  PPE – helmets, boots, dust masks etc.  Safe demolition requires planning  Keep people as far away as possible  Use of method statements 
  7. 7. Supervision by competent person  Where possible, demolish in reverse order of  construction Use CDM H&S file if available?  Protect machine cabs to guard against falling  objects Temporary props may be required to support  unstable structures
  8. 8. Remove debris as it builds up to prevent  floors/walls collapsing Disconnect live services (although water may  be required in event of a fire) Remove hazardous materials  Provide site hoardings where necessary (about  2.5m high) Do not allow materials to fall into area where  people are
  9. 9. Fans or covered walkways may be needed to  catch falling objects Erect warning notices around hoardings  Remove window panes before demolition  Erect warning notices on doors, especially  where floors have been removed
  10. 10. Damp area down with water  Dog-leg rubbish chutes, or barrier off skip  area Provide safe access & egress (especially  where there are no floors) High standard of housekeeping  Secure ladders  Use safety harnesses where necessary  Create a buffer zone around the demolition  area
