The UK have introduced a new safety helmet colour-coding system. Should Australia do similar?
The UK have introduced a new safety helmet colour-coding system.
Build UK has developed the Safety Helmet Colours & Training Standards to improve safety on construction sites across the UK. These standards use the a simple colour-coding system to help workers identify the type of site operative, where: - Black: Supervisor - Orange: Slinger/signaller, site manager, competent operative - White: Vehicle marshal (must wear contrasting hi-vis vest) - Blue: All others on site.
The standard does not extend to Network Rail sites, which only allow white and blue helmets.
Could your workplace benefit from a similar system or should Australia look at introducing something similar?
