Actioning unlicensed contracting and ridding the industry of unscrupulous operators also helps to maintain standards within the building industry.
From June 1, building industry subcontractors will be accountable for any defective work they do, in a change to the existing policy, which has seen principal contractors held responsible for the defective work.
Achieving safety compliance today, is no easy challenge, but the greatest challenge to becoming and maintaining that compliance is consistency, consistently following through on the tasks required, performing inductions (company policies, safe work method statements and basic training i.e. manual handling, hazardous substances & PPE training), toolbox meetings, prestart checks, recording incidents and closing them out, monitoring reports.
Having a monthly checklist of tasks required to be completed is a good idea but needs to be consistently followed through on otherwise the list becomes pointless. Record keeping of the above mentioned tasks is also important, most of that information sits idle and may never be used to any great length, until an incident occurs, then it becomes critical to the business’s defence, as well as proof of how safety is taken seriously within the business.
Below is a great link to a compliance checklist at Worksafe.qld.gov.au if you wish to see how compliant your business is.
