MONITOR AND REVIEW CONTROL MEASURES

The risk identification, assessment and control process requires regular monitoring to ensure the
implemented control measures perform as originally intended and continue to prevent or adequately
control the risk of injury.

Control measures should also be checked carefully to ensure that new hazards are not created, directly or
indirectly, by the original control measures.


Safe Work Method Statements will also include a description of the equipment used in the work, the
standards or codes to be complied with, the qualifications of the personnel doing the work and the
training required to do the work.
Safe Work Method Statements will be developed in consultation with the relevant employees.



SAFE WORK METHOD STATEMENTS

Safe Work Method Statements will be developed for all activities. Safe Work Method Statements will
include the following:
(a) description of how work is to be carried out, and
(b) identification of the work activities assessed as having safety risks, and (c) identification the safety
risks, and
(d) a description of the control measures that will be applied to the work activities,



* The following forms for a safe work method statement must be filled in for the job at hand and
revised for each job, risk assessments, safe operating procedures and MSDS sheets must also be
attached to make this safety plan effective.

receptacles provided and remember that there is a place for everything and everything belongs
in its place. Do not throw materials or equipment of any kind down from elevated work areas.
Do not leave it lying around working areas for it may cause someone to trip and cause injury.

VENTILATION

All work should be carried out in such a way as to minimise the generation of dust, gas and
vapours. Under site conditions, sawing, drilling, sanding, etc. should be done with equipment
fitted with exhaust devices capable of removing dust, gas and vapour at source. Hand power
tools should be used in well-ventilated areas so as to avoid the spread of dust, gas and vapour.
Work areas should be cleaned at least daily, and dust removed by vacuum cleaning or wet
sweeping method.



MANUAL HANDLING

When handling hot or sharp objects wear gloves to avoid cuts or burns.
Before lifting ensure footing is stable and keep feet shoulder width apart.
TO PREVENT BACK INJURY keep your back straight, hold the load close to your body,

lifting.
Plan your lift and if too heavy or too long, always seek assistance (it doesn't hurt to ask,
but it will hurt if you over lift)
When lifting repetitively, regularly take a break and rest your back to avoid repetitive
strain.
Never over lift and always look for other options such as trolleys, forklifts and cranes.

HAZARD IDENTIFICATION AND RISK CONTROL:

HIERARCHY OF CONTROL:

Relevant workers are to conduct a risk assessment of the proposed task
Most and/or workplace using the;
Effective Hierarchy of Control;

This is the procedure set out in OH&S Legislation as best practice for the
Elimination of Hazards or the control of the risks they pose;

It outlines that workplace safety can generally be managed by these five
basic steps:

Identify Hazards

Assess Risks

Decide on Control Measures

Implement Control Measures

Monitor and Review the effectiveness of the control measures;


Elimination: Removal of the hazard altogether; (ideal)

Control Measures:

Substitution: Use a less hazardous substance, material or process, e. g.
Work off a scaffold instead of a ladder;

Redesign: Involves changing the design of the workplace or the work
process, e. g. use a screeding machine instead of a hand screed;

Isolation: Is to isolate the hazard from the workers or the workers from the
Least
hazard; e.g. establish exclusion zones to prevent unauthorised entry;
Effective

Administration: Is to minimise the risk through procedures or instructions
e. g. job rotation, safety instructions, training and warning signs;

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): is the equipment worn by people as a final barrier
between themselves and the hazard.
(Least effective)



CONSEQUENCE: How severely could someone be hurt
Catastrophic death or permanent disability to one or more workers
Major hospital admission required
Moderate medical treatment required
Minor first aid required
Insignificant injuries not requiring first aid

LIKELIHOOD: How likely are those consequences?
Almost certain expected to occur in most circumstances
Likely will probably occur in most circumstances
Possible could occur at some time
Unlikely is not likely to occur in normal circumstances
Rare may occur only in exceptional circumstances

REHABILITATION POLICY

Central to our business culture is our commitment to the health and safety of our workers and
everyone who visits our workplaces. Where a work related injury/illness occurs, we are
committed to assisting the injured/ill worker to recover from their injury/illness and developing
a Return to Work (RTW) Plan which will facilitate a return to their normal job whenever
possible. Rehabilitation shall be provided in accordance with current legislative requirements.

Providing a safe and healthy work environment, but in the event of an injury or an
illness, endeavouring to arrange that workplace rehabilitation is started as soon as
possible in accordance with medical advice.
Endeavouring to arrange suitable duties for injured or ill workers to facilitate their safe
and early return to work. These duties must be medically approved and will be time
limited.

Respecting the confidential nature of medical information and ensuring there will be
both verbal and written confidentiality.

Making workers aware that, in the event of injury or illness, they will wherever possible
be consulted to develop their rehabilitation plan for a structured and safe return to
work that will not disadvantage them.

Workers and their PCBUs recognise they have an important role to play in rehabilitation
and the need for mutual cooperation in all aspect of the RTW Plan.

We shall arrange for rehabilitation to commence at the time of injury or when
treatment is first started, whichever is the most practical.

Complying with legislative obligations with respect to rehabilitation.

Adopting a multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation as required.

Reviewing this policy and procedures to ensure it continues to meet legislative
requirements and the needs of all parties.


This policy will be reviewed at least once a year to ensure it meets our ongoing commitment to
rehabilitation and injured workers and in particular ensuring a safe workplace.
