|Flying debris and shards||
Understand all associated hazard knowledge
Cutting equipment will be needed to create access to a collapsed structure. Such operations will produce debris, sparks and dust, which may create additional hazards if not appropriately managed. Damping down techniques can be employed to reduce hazards of this nature, but all equipment must be appropriately guarded and used by suitably trained personnel wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) or respiratory protective equipment (RPE).
