Blocked Drain RA

Morning All,

Has anyone got a risk assessment for unblocking drains?

Using rods, jetting etc.

Thank you [Like.png]

wow do you need one? I could supply you with a generic manual handling task assessment if you like but a risk assessment for this [Neutral.png]

I know!

I've got a basic generic one but the risks for this type of work go on and on. [Scared.png]

Basically just stand well back, wear appropriate clothing and safety glasses and ensure the area you are working in has a secure area around it. [Success.png]

Re: Blocked Drain RA

I no longer rod drains as I consider it a 2 person job to remove the inspection covers, small gulley's toilet pans and sinks yes.
