WH&S

HEALTH AND SAFETY SYSTEMS AND PRACTICES

CDC Developmentā€™s WHS Management Plan has been developed to outline our approach to managing work health and safety (WHS) and comply with/adhere to the Laws and Codes of Practice of the Tasmanian Government Work Health and Safety Act (Australian Standards).

We are reviewed and updated on an annual basis and whenever new information is available, through Safeguard OH&S Solutions.

We also run updates and workshops for our employees through Master Builders Tasmania.

WE:

  • make this plan (tailored to the particular job) available to all workers and contractors on this project and ensure they have the opportunity to read, understand, clarify and ask questions
  • keep a copy of the WHS Management Plan and associated documentation readily available on site for the duration of the project
  • review the plan regularly throughout this project and make any revisions known to those working on the project

GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF PREVENTION

The purpose of the General Principles of Prevention in our organisation is to provide a framework within which any risk issues can be assessed.

  • The avoidance of risks
  • The evaluation of unavoidable risks
  • The combating of risks at source
  • The adaptation of work to the individual, especially as regards the design of places of work, the choice of work equipment and systems of work, with a view to alleviating monotonous work and work at a predetermined rate and to reduce their effect on health
  • The adaptation of the workplace to technical progress
  • The replacement of dangerous articles, substances or systems of work by non-dangerous articles, substances or systems of work.
  • The giving to collective protective measures priority over individual protective measure
  • The development of an adequate prevention policy in relation to safety, health and welfare at work, which takes account of technology, organisation of work, working conditions, social factors and the influence of factors related to the working environment.
  • The provision of appropriate training and instruction to employees.

At CDC Development, we regard our employees as important and also as valuable assets and we continue to strive for their Health and Safety on each and every job site or workplace no matter the size.
