Temporary barricading is protective equipment used to prevent people being unnecessarily exposed to a hazard.
Like other types of protective equipment, if temporary barricading is not used properly, it is ineffective in preventing exposure to hazards.
Barricading can be either permanent or temporary. Permanent barricading, such as fences and screens, is used to isolate and prevent access to large parts of fixed machinery and equipment.
Temporary barricading is used to prevent access to an area where:
• a temporary hazard exists; or
• the type of work creates a hazard for people nearby.
At the end of this talk you will know:
• the types of temporary barricading used;
• when they should be used; and
• how to use them correctly.
