WAH Tab

What are the layer effects of the Working at Heights (WAH) tab, in OHS Online?

Yep, this is a really important question! The WAH tab has both layer 1 and layer 2 effects in its workings. The layer 2 effects have been explained in detail in the Precautionary Measures question (refer to this section for more details), so we'll concentrate on the layer 1 effects:

The layer 1 effects from this tab are connected to the Approve tab and are both passive and active. Height work details are reflected in both the contractor declaration section (section 15) and the site hand-back section (section 16): 

1/. Passive effect - Approval section: When the WAH tab is included in the PTW, it will become visible automatically in Section 15 of the Approve tab:

2/. Passive - Work at Height Permit: Hand-back section: When the WAH tab is included in the PTW, it will have a specific check which will automatically be displayed in the Site Hand-back section of Section 16 of the Approve tab:

3/. Active - Work at Height Permit: Hand-back section (Ladder Work): When specific hazard aspects are checked as YES in the Type Of Work At Height section, hand-back checks, specific to those hazard aspects, will be displayed in the work at heights hand-back section, in section 16 of the Approve tab. In this case, when the specific hazard aspects relate to ladder use, the following active layer 1 mechanism operates:

4/. Active - Work at Height Permit: Hand-back section (Scaffolding Work): When specific hazard aspects are checked as YES in the Type Of Work At Height section, hand-back checks, specific to those hazard aspects, will be displayed in the work at heights hand-back section, in section 16 of the Approve tab. In this case, when the specific hazard aspects relate to scaffolding work, the following active layer 1 mechanism operates:

5/. Active - Work at Height Permit: Hand-back section (Suspended Platform Work): When specific hazard aspects are checked as YES in the Type Of Work At Height section, hand-back checks, specific to those hazard aspects, will be displayed in the work at heights hand-back section, in section 16 of the Approve tab. In this case, when the specific hazard aspects relate to suspended platform work, the following active layer 1 mechanism operates:

6/. Active - Work at Height Permit: Hand-back section (Material Hoist Work): When specific hazard aspects are checked as YES in the Type Of Work At Height section, hand-back checks, specific to those hazard aspects, will be displayed in the work at heights hand-back section, in section 16 of the Approve tab. In this case, when the specific hazard aspects relate to material hoist work, the following active layer 1 mechanism operates:

7/. Active - Work at Height Permit: Hand-back section (Rope Work): When specific hazard aspects are checked as YES in the Work Environment section of the WAH tab, hand-back checks, specific to those hazard aspects, will be displayed in the infrastructure hand-back section, in section 16 of the Approve tab. In this case, when the specific hazard aspects relate to rope work, the following active layer 1 mechanism operates:

8/. Active - Work at Height Permit: Hand-back section (Roof Work): When specific hazard aspects are checked as YES in the Work Environment section of the WAH tab, hand-back checks, specific to those hazard aspects, will be displayed in the infrastructure hand-back section, in section 16 of the Approve tab. In this case, when the specific hazard aspects relate to roof work, the following active layer 1 mechanism operates:

9/. Active - Work at Height Permit: Hand-back section (MEWP Work): When specific hazard aspects are checked as YES in the Work Environment section of the WAH tab, hand-back checks, specific to those hazard aspects, will be displayed in the infrastructure hand-back section, in section 16 of the Approve tab. In this case, when the specific hazard aspects relate to MEWP work, the following active layer 1 mechanism operates:

10/. Active - Work at Height Permit: Hand-back section (Debris Chute Work): When specific hazard aspects are checked as YES in the Work Environment section of the WAH tab, hand-back checks, specific to those hazard aspects, will be displayed in the infrastructure hand-back section, in section 16 of the Approve tab. In this case, when the specific hazard aspects relate to using debris chutes, the following active layer 1 mechanism operates:

11/. Active - Work at Height Permit: Hand-back section (Tower Crane Work): When specific hazard aspects are checked as YES in the Work Environment section of the WAH tab, hand-back checks, specific to those hazard aspects, will be displayed in the infrastructure hand-back section, in section 16 of the Approve tab. In this case, when the specific hazard aspects relate to tower crane work, the following active layer 1 mechanism operates:

12/. Active - Work at Height Permit: Hand-back section (Mobile Crane Work): When specific hazard aspects are checked as YES in the Work Environment section of the WAH tab, hand-back checks, specific to those hazard aspects, will be displayed in the infrastructure hand-back section, in section 16 of the Approve tab. In this case, when the specific hazard aspects relate to mobile crane work, the following active layer 1 mechanism operates:
