Licencing and inductions play a big part in graffiti removal. To prevent incidents and a mountain of paper work, it’s important to use a company that has the experience and hence the awareness of what can go wrong during graffiti removal in order to mitigate the risks.
The high voltage electricity building in Brisbane, shown in the photo above, needed the graffiti removed at the same time as remaining operational. A critical part of the task was to ensure that the soft and old mortar joints were preserved and that water from the pressure cleaning process didn’t enter the building through doors and air vents.
Extra care is always required around high voltage installations, which is why all Graffiti Eaters Surface Restoration Technicians undergo specific training relating to this. You wouldn’t let your employees work in this environment without adequate safety training. The same standards of safety should also be required from technicians outside of your company.
The Graffiti Eaters ensure that we remain compliant through regular checks carried out by independent auditors in relation to OH&S standards S/NZ 4801:2001, as well as compliance to Work Method Statements and Job Safety Analysis.
Before we commence work, a personalised risk assessment is performed, which outlines all hazards associated with the particular area and outlines the controls put in place to manage the risk. In the case of the graffiti removal from the Brisbane Electrical Substation, the risk assessment included significant safety measures, and helped ensure that the job was carried out successfully which you can see in the photo below.
You can rest easy knowing that we have the experience to perform graffiti removal safely and efficiently. To find out more, contact the Graffiti Eaters.
