  • Risk Management
    • Identifying hazards and managing risks
  • We will systematically identify hazards and risks beforethe project starts by using the hierarchy of control (Eliminate, Substitute, Isolate, Engineering controls, Administrative controls and Personal Protective Equipment) as well as developing SWMS to control risks associated with high risk construction work. Also using a risk management form to control general construction risks where necessary. We will also identify risks at ordering stage (e.g. chemicals), introducing new tasks, and when new information is received about tasks, procedures, equipment or materials.
  • Any and all hazards that are identified through out the construction project must be reported immediately to head contractor.
  • We will ensure all workers on site are aware of our risk management procedures and inform and train them during time of induction.
  • evacuation plan
    • show all workers and subcontractors the emergency point as part of their induction
    • stop work immediately and vacate worksite to evacuation point
    • assemble in nominated evacuation point until further instruction received
  • emergency response plan
    • show all workers and subcontractors the emergency point as part of their induction.
    • Stop work immediately and vacate worksite
    • call emergency services on 000 or 112
    • notify head contractor
    • assemble in nominated evacuation point until further instruction is received
  • inductions
    • a site specific induction will be carried out by the head contractor before starting work

    • facilities
    • any site specific hazards
    • high risk work activities

  • work near overhead or underground services
  • assess the risk associated with the proposed work
  • implement control measures consistent with the risk assessment

    • be of robust construction and materials capable of withstanding damage from the weather and other environmental and site influences (IP23 minimum rating)
    • be securely attached to a post, pole, wall or other structure unless it is of a stable freestanding design able to withstand external forces likely to be present
    • incorporate suitable support and protection for flexible cords and cables and prevent mechanical strain to the cable connections inside the board
