Workplace Health and Safety​

Workplace Health and Safety must be a primary focus for all employers.  Our industry is extremely hazardous, and we need to ensure we do everything practicable and, in our powers, to ensure our workforce goes home safely from work, every day.

The area of Work, Health and Safety (WHS) has become an increasingly important aspect to all organisations and individuals working in the building and construction industry. Successfully managing your WHS issues protects your workforce and your business and can prevent disruptive and costly disputes.

On this page you will find links to important safety information, dial before you dig, codes of practice and toolbox topics that you can use with your staff to ensure that safety is front of mind for every person, every day.

CCF Tasmania can also help you with templates for SWMS (Safe Work Method Statements), Risk Assessments, Plant Risk Assessments, Pre-Start Books, Safety Management Plans and ensuring you are COVID-19 compliant.

Safety Pyramid

The safety triangle is a theory of accident prevention. It shows a relationship between serious accidents, minor accidents, near misses and describes a stable ratio between incidents of varying degrees of severity and at the bottom of it all are unsafe acts or risky behaviours

Chain Of Responsibility​

The aim of COR is to make sure everyone in the supply chain shares responsibility for ensuring breaches of the HVNL do not occur. Under COR laws if you are named as a party in the chain of responsibility and you exercise (or have the capability of exercising) control or influence over any transport task, you have a responsibility to ensure the HVNL is complied with.

The law recognises that multiple parties may be responsible for offences committed by the drivers and operators of heavy vehicles. A person may be a party in the supply chain in more than one way. For example they may have duties as the employer, the operator and the consigner of goods.
