Management is committed to doing everything possible to prevent injuries and to maintain a healthy and safe work environment. Due to the safety sensitive nature of the work performed by our company we believe that safety should not be compromised for any reason, including expedience or productivity. All employees are asked to make certain they take the time to perform their actions in the safest way possible. It is our continued goal to maintain zero days lost due to injury or preventable workplace accident or disease. CRAS is committed to providing the Highest Standard of Safety. To this end: All managers and supervisors are responsible for ensuring that their crew members are properly trained and instructed in approved procedures and that all rope access workers have current rope access certification. (CRAS-RAOP s.2) All supervisors are responsible for ensuring that personnel follow safe work practices at all times, IRATA guidelines wherever applicable and local regulations. All supervisors are responsible for conducting a complete hazard assessment before starting any task and for conducting a safety meeting with their crew before starting every work day(cras-raop s.4.1.3) All personnel are required to understand and participate in the OHS program.

When the incident has been resolved the supervisor will complete a detailed written incident report including the date and time of the accident or near miss, a description of what happened, the injuries or risks of the event and the names of witnesses. Before commencing work the supervisor will make all technicians aware of all site specific variables including but not limited to; any confined spaces or unsafe energy sources that technicians may be working around, the method of summoning any on site first aid or rescue, any alarm or air horn signals, all escape routes and muster locations, internal phone locations, any site specific emergency supplies, shelters or procedures and any decontamination areas where applicable.

They will not engage in horseplay or work while impaired by alcohol, drugs, fatigue, illness or other sources of impairment. Any employee who is suspected of being impaired or otherwise unfit for duty will be sent home without pay and may be subject to drug testing or disciplinary action.(ohs 1.4) No personnel will bring prohibited or illegal items, such as drugs or alcohol to any job. (OHS 1.4) All personnel will wear appropriate PPE at all times, no worker will start any task without the appropriate safety equipment. As a basic requirement all field technicians are required to wear above the ankle steel toed boots, high visibility vest or equivalent, a long sleeve shirt, full length pants and appropriate helmet. All workers should carry and use safety glasses, ear plugs, knee pads and gloves when appropriate. (CRAS-RAOP s.3.3) Personnel will wear the following PPE provided by the CRAS whenever appropriate.

All personnel are expected to arrive at the job site on time, perform as agreed, and meet commitments. Personal phone calls are to be kept to an absolute minimum.

5 1.1.4 Site Safety (CRAS-RAOP s.4.3) More often than not, as rope access technicians, we are working on unfamiliar sites owned by other companies. This adds extra challenges to providing our personnel with a safe working environment. To ensure the safety of our personnel and the safety of our clients it is essential to gather as much information about the site as possible. Management will make every effort to gather as much information as possible about a work site before any CRAS operative visits, and where practical will provide a preliminary site safety plan. Additionally the supervisor visiting the site must perform his own site evaluation and documentation. This includes paying close attention to whatever site indoctrination exists, and forming a good understanding of the hazards and safety procedures established for that site. (CRAS-RAOP s.4) It is important to include in our site file any site specific emergency contacts (site supervisors, first aid resources and rescue) the location of any phones and any site established procedures for calling for for help. Any particular hazards identified by the host should also be documented, such as energized equipment, toxic chemicals or mechanical hazards. The field supervisor will conduct a Job Hazard Analysis, Safety meeting and Site Supplement. (Forms 5.3, 5.4, 5.1) Before commencement of any operation, whenever scope changes, and at weekly intervals, the CRAS site supervisor will conduct a site inspection and walk through of all work areas that personnel may be working in or around. The CRAS supervisor will also assess work methods and practices to ensure they will not introduce hazards to workers. A CRAS supervisor will inspect the CRAS facility monthly, and after every training course to ensure no new hazards have developed. The inspection will look for any safety concerns, including but not limited to, slip trip fall hazards, cluttered work areas and unsafe storage of substances or equipment. Before commencing work all CRAS technicians will participate in a safety meeting and all personnel will be made aware of all site specific variables including but not limited to; Any confined spaces, unsafe energy sources or toxic chemicals that technicians may be working around or may encounter. (CRAS-RAOP s.4.3.1) Any lockout procedures to protect workers from energy sources that they may be working around. Any restricted areas. Any site specific policies Any site specific hazardous materials and appropriate MSDS sheets Sources of Potable water and appropriate bathrooms The method of summoning first aid and rescue Any alarm or air horn signals Evacuation procedures, escape routes and muster locations. Method of contacting help or a site supervisor, internal phone locations or monitored radios, emergency channels. Any site specific emergency supplies, shelters or procedures and any eye wash stations, first aid rooms or decontamination areas where applicable. The location of the nearest hospital and the method of transporting injured works to said hospital In the case of any none urban area technicians will be informed of the nearest suitable helicopter landing zone for medical evacuation.

6 All CRAS personnel will observe the following site specific safety rules and etiquette at all times. All CRAS personnel will maintain good house keeping. CRAS personnel will keep equipment neat, organized and out of the way so as to not generate a tripping hazard or a cluttered work area. All CRAS personnel will report all site safety concerns to their CRAS supervisor who will then report concerns to CRAS management and the host or client company site representative. CRAS will not engage in any work until the host or client has addressed any serious safety concerns. Safety concerns may include, but are not limited to; any unsafe walking surfaces that are either are not structurally sound, may introduce undue trip hazards, or are slippery. Unknown chemical substances, equipment or unsafe energy sources that may require isolation or lock out and overhead hazards. All CRAS personnel will observe electrical safety. Circuits will never be overloaded, plug ends will be kept out of water, cords with damaged insulation will not be used and where exposure to water is expected all circuits will be GFCI. CRAS personnel will not work, or remain on site if their judgement or cognitive abilities are impaired for any reason, including fatigue, drugs and alcohol, illness, prescriptions drugs etc. CRAS personnel will only drink water which has been designated or marked potable. CRAS personnel will adhere to host or client safe work practices and site specific policies CRAS personnel will make every effort to minimize disruption of the host or client's operations, and make every effort minimize intrusion or imposition on the host. CRAS supervisors will co-ordinate work with the host company or client and their field supervisors (CRAS-RAOP s.3.4.1)
