A new riser permit system has been introduced to minimise the risks associated with working in risers. This includes a plan drawing, specific to the East Village N08 site, which is marked for the exact positioning of operatives’ work.
On the East Village site the risers come in two floor-high sections which are capped above and below. All riser permits need to be signed off by a Mace manager and one of two authorised signatories who co-ordinate to ensure no two operatives are working in the same riser on different levels
However, even before they can be signed off, a Mace manager in charge of the works needs to inspect the risers with the operative carrying out the works and complete a checklist, which then ensures the area is safe for work to commence.
All operatives working in risers are required to carry their permit and drawing on their arm pouch so that Mace managers can check that they have been given permission.
