The work health and safety of all employees within this company, including subcontractors, clients and visitors are considered to be of utmost importance. BSF Air Conditioning has comprised WHS protocols to mitigate the potential of hazards arising in the workplace. These measures enforced throughout our work processes and activities are designed to meet the requirements of the WHS Act 2011 and WHS Regulation 2017 as well as any special specifications imposed by our Clients.
BSF Air Conditioning is dedicated to the provision of a safe and healthy workplace and have adopted the following risk management practices to assist in this regard.
The objective of work health and safety is primarily the responsibility of management. The responsible Manager is required to contribute to the health and safety of all persons in the workplace as well as develop, implement, review and update in consultation with its employees and stakeholders.
Each front-line supervisor is responsible, and will be held accountable, for taking all practical measures to ensure that:
Following the report of a Work Health and Safety concern the Responsible Manager will investigate the hazard and determine the corrective action that is needed to resolve the issue.
Any accident with the potential for medical treatment/insurance claim must also be recorded and emailed to the insurer immediately.
The Responsible Manager is required to notify the Regulator (e.g. WorkCover NSW) of any accidents involving employees or others which result in in-patient treatment.
All employees including subcontractors, clients and visitors are required to co-operate with the WHS Policy to ensure the health and safety of themselves and others in the workplace.
All employees will receive task specific training where appropriate.
All employees are expected to comply with policies and procedures and any reasonable instructions from managers in conjunction with written contracts.
Where an employee identifies a potential health or safety concern, he or she must fill in a hazard form, containing the nature and location of the issue, and report directly to the Responsible Manager.
Risk assessments are to be completed where the potential of a hazard exists. The assessments should identify the nature of risk, specific high risk tasks, and the control measures to mitigate the potential of injury associated with hazards identified. It may also include detail pertaining to the frequency of injury or disease that could result, the duration of exposure to injury or disease sources and the likely severity of injury or illness. It may be necessary to break the activity into a series of parts and assess each part separately. Risk assessments will be documented on a risk assessment form.
Once the risk is identified control measures should be taken to reduce the hazard and risk from the activity. A hierarchy or preferred order of control measures ranging from most effective to least effective should be considered.
BSF Air Conditioning recognizes that protecting the safety of all our employees is of the upmost importance. By implementing a policy of consultation throughout the organization and with all levels of employees, BSF Air Conditioning hopes to prevent unnecessary and costly injuries and/or illness.
BSF Air Conditioning aims to create a workplace environment where consultation is conducted freely allowing movement toward eliminating work related fatalities, injuries and diseases. This will be achieved through the implementation of
In all cases a report will be investigated and, where appropriate, corrective action will be undertaken to eliminate or control the nonconformance.
Through the process of Internal Audits, Site Inspections and Management Review we will ensure our system remains compliant to the Standard and the WHS Act 2011 and WHS Regulation 2017.
BSF Air Conditioning supports the development of new and updated WHS procedures and encourages a proactive approach to engineering solutions and innovative strategies.
