WHS Management Plan Key Facts
A Project WHS Management Plan is critical for ensuring the WHS on construction projects as there are usually many contractors and subcontractors involved and circumstances can change quickly from day to day.
The level of detail required for a Project WHS Management Plan depends on how complex the workplace is (particularly the number of contractors at the workplace at any one time) and the risks involved in the work.
It must also be in writing, easily accessible and understood by the workers on the site. The Project WHS Management Plan can also be adapted to include Project Quality and Project Environmental to ensure total job compliance.
The plan to manage work health and safety on a construction project assists in ensuring that the risks associated with a construction project are managed, roles allocated and persons held responsible.
The principal contractor on site is ultimately responsible for all health, safety, quality and environmental outcomes. This can be an intimidating responsibility when accompanied with the usual demands of running a business.
