While vehicles used for transportation, including water vessels, aircraft, and road or rail vehicles are not under the cover of the regulations, the latest WHS Act provides coverage for “Persons Conducting a Business or Undertaking” (PCBU). Thanks to this approach persons using these pieces of equipment or vehicles are covered as long as the use relates to their business.

These new regulations have been developed to deliver more relevant definition of personnel trusted with health and safety duties. These regulations also require persons with these duties to directly consult with others on the worksite or in the industry.

Designed to greatly reduce worksite risks PCBUs can make worksites safer and provide persons with increased peace of mind while completing their daily tasks. During the assessment process this Act allows our assessors to consider what the worksite or the company should know regarding the possible hazards and risks on site or in the workplace.

If conducted by non-professional or unexperienced assessors, workplace assessments can potentially overlook risks and hazards. By conducting a thorough, objective, and impartial plant risk assessment, Australian Risk Services can deliver the right assessment for your environment.

To find out more about our detailed, reliable, and compliant services, assessments, and work safety equipment Sydney worksites and companies, big and small, can get in touch with us directly on 1300 266 172.

Means of transportation, such as ships, boats, aircraft, road and rail vehicles, as well as manual-powered hand-held plants, are not covered by the regulations. The new WHS Act covers any “Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking” (PCBU) involving this equipment.

Depending on where you are based, the new regulations contain broadened definitions of persons with health and safety duties, along with an increased requirement for duty holders to consult with others.

PCBUs are required to eliminate risks so far as is “reasonably practicable.” When assessing whether or not sufficient effort was made to eliminate risk, the act takes into consideration not only to what you know, but what you should know about risks and hazards in the workplace.

Thorough, objective plant risk assessment on your own work environment can be difficult. Potential risks and hazards can be overlooked by non-professional assessors.

Benefits of assessment

Reduced incidents and injuries

Reduced chance of prosecution

More efficient business processes

This diverse experience means that we understand the hazards associated with a wide range of equipment, can think laterally and know how to provide practical guidance on how to meet regulatory requirements.

Qualified advice

The aim of the new regulations is to provide a nationally consistent framework, reducing confusion, double handling and separate process development across different jurisdictions. The transition to operating under the new regulations, however, may be difficult, requiring consultation with an industry professional.

Australian Risk Services provides a range of other services relating to the new regulations, including WHS risk assessments for confined spaces, dangerous goods, hazardous substances, manual handling, working at heights and more.
