No
Notes
It is my view that no consultation has taken place with workers.

No
Notes
There was little to no safety presence on the job, from observing the workers on site little to no supervision or guidance was being given as to how the job was going to be performed. The attitude of “we just get in do it” was evident.

No
Have workers been supplied with appropriate PPE? (WHS Regs 44)
No
Notes
There were workers observed in scissor lifts removing glass from roof sections in areas surrounded heavily by suspected asbestos containing material with no masks/respirators, overalls, gloves or glasses on at the time. They were also observed sweeping the floors where we found there to be suspected asbestos containing material on the ground. They had no disposable overalls or appropriate PPE for working around asbestos containing material.
Photos
Have other control measures been implemented to reduce the amount of PPE needed? (WHS Regs 36)
No
Notes
They are not doing anything to reduce the amount of PPE except not suppling it. They are not wet sweeping to reduce the exposure to dust and potential airborne asbestos. No controls appear to be in place to manage the risk of asbestos exposure. A couple of air monitors were found to be present, however they were not placed in the areas where work was being carried out so had little to no relevance or protection value.
Have workers been consulted about the need for and type of PPE supplied? (WHS Act 49)
No
Notes

Is there safe access and egress to and from work areas, both under normal conditions and an emergency? (WHS Regs 40)
No
Notes

Working At Heights

No
Notes
As per previous comments no SWMS could be produced by the PCBU to show me that the appropriate steps have been taken to keep the workers safe.

No
Is the highest measure in the hierarchy of control being implemented? (WHS Regs 79)
No
Are controls inspected and maintained? (WHS Regs 37)
No
Are emergency and rescue procedures in place? (WHS Regs 80)
No
Notes
I asked the PCBU for the emergency and rescue procedure he answered me with “no comment”. I find these answer to be proof that there were no documents in place to control these risks.
Are warning signs in place highlighting the risk of falls? (WHS Regs 79)
No
Notes
No barricading to prevent workers falling into this pit let alone signage to inform anyone of the pit.
Photos

No
Are harnesses being used? (AS/NZS 1891)
Yes
Are harnesses being used as a last resort?
N/A
Have workers been trained in using harnesses?
No
Notes
I asked for working at heights tickets but the PCBU failed to supply this information.
Are harnesses in good condition and inspected regularly?
No
Notes
The harness tags were not legible, i was unable to see when they were manufactured, they had no lanyard to attach the harness to the machine. The PCBU had supplied the workers with sling to tie to the harness and then to the machine. The slings had no clips or hooks to clip no to anchor points and were certainly not fit for purpose. This is extremely dangerous and negligent. the system we observed provides the worker with absolutely no fall protection whatsoever. There were no three monthly inspection tags on any of the harnesses to show that they have been inspected by a qualified person.
Photos
Are harnesses only connected to suitable anchorage points? (AS/NZS 1891)
No
Notes
See previous comments

Is there a plant register kept on site?
No
Is a copy of the manufacturers specifications available? (WHS Regs 198)
No
Notes
I was only able to access the scissor lift to inspect the equipment the PCBU locked the bobcat on site and refused to allow me to inspect the machine.
Does it comply with manufacturers recommendations? (WHS Regs 202)
No
Is the design registration readily accessible? (WHS Regs 260)
N/A
Plant is only used for the purpose which it is designed? (WHS Regs 206)
No
Notes
The workers are using the scissor lift to store removed glass from the windows on the roof which is then creating a extremely dangerous hazard if the workers slip, or trip and fall on to the glass.
Photos
Does the operator/installer have appropriate license/competency? (WHS Regs 81)
No
Notes
I was unable to get confirmation of this as the PCBU refused on multiple occasions when I asked to see the workers tickets. I am of the belief that the PCBU does not have copies of the workers tickets.
Are log books kept and up to date? (WHS Regs 237)
No
Notes
The servicing of the plant is out of date and by inspecting the plant it’s obvious that the workers are not inspecting the plant before use and are just signing the log book.

No
Notes

Additional Risks/Hazards
Unanswered
Notes
It is my view, that the obvious lack of management ability and structure at site level, has inevitably resulted in the health & safety of workers, and indeed the public, being put at unnecessary levels of risk. This site has not been set up by a competent person, nor does it come close to complying with WH&S legislation or the codes of practice.
