For any Project Manager, Compliance Advisor or Site Manager; safety on-site is built into any procedure or task performed on any project. Over the coming months, we will be assisting in an Amenities Upgrades Project at a shopping centre in the Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs.
Our service is providing the client assistance in reviewing engaged contractors’ safety and environment documentation to be implemented on-site. This is because our client wants to keep everyone safe on site (whether it’s the contractors, store keepers or shoppers – no difference!). This service not only covers off your legal requirements – it is also the corporate social responsibility of the client.
Here are the key steps in reviewing any safety and environment documentation, which we will undertake are:
The documentation in the planning stage is meant to provide assurance that all contractors’ planning documentation is appropriate and encompasses the safety requirements needed in this proposed project.
A safety professional being present on-site, sends a clear message to all involved that the overarching client is serious about safety and environment. As cliché as it sounds, a safe job is a happy job!
Overall, our client gains assurance and ‘peace of mind’ that we, as the safety and environment professionals, are involved in the project thus making independent and impartial observations whilst providing advice/recommendations where necessary.
