Don't forget this one health and safety document or you won't comply with the OHS Act

by , 30 October 2014
To comply with the OHS Act, you need to follow all of its instructions. And you need to have a way to track and implement health and safety in your workplace to do this.

Otherwise, you might forget something or do it incorrectly and that makes you guilty of non-compliance.

That's why you need to create a specific health and safety document to help you avoid this.

Read on to find out what it is...

 

This is the one document you need to guarantee your company's health and safety compliance

 
You must create a health and safety plan. As the name suggests, this is your step-by-step plan to fulfil all your health and safety obligations. 
 
You'll create this plan to guide your actions in implementing health and safety. 
 
It also helps your managers and general employees know what they must do in terms of health and safety. After all, it's a team effort and not something that affects you alone.
 
That's why you must draw up a detailed plan that translates your health and safety programme into a clear set of actions and instructions. This stops your company from accidently failing to comply. 
 
Here are the five sections you must include in your health and safety plan.

Ensure your health and safety plan includes these fives general sections

 
1. Health and safety appointments;
2. Health and safety training;
3. Safety equipment;
4. Housekeeping; and
5. Assessment measures.
 
These five sections must also contain detailed steps about how you're going to, for example, appoint and train your various health and safety appointments.
 
This will ensure you cover all your bases when it comes to health and safety so you can avoid a punishment for non-compliance.
