Known as the Work Health and Safety (WHS) Act, specific regulations determine the processes to be followed by both the employer and employee in all aspects of health and safety (previously referred to as Occupational Health and Safety – OHS)
From time to time legislation changes and/or alerts are raised by industry bodies and as such changes to the company’s policies and procedures may occur to ensure compliance and/or improve workplace safety. Any change to Phoenix Civil & Earthmoving HSEQ system (Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality) will be administered via two formats:
– Internal Memorandum with the associated policy document or alert for sign off, on the job training may be required as part of the process and will be conducted by management or an external body.
– Toolbox meeting discussing in a more generalized format but also requiring sign off.
If an employee needs to raise an issue in regards to the workplace and/or safety they must contact their direct supervisor to discuss. An incident report can be used to formalize the concern, this will then be passed onto senior management for review
An employee can also raise issues or concerns as part of the Tool Box meeting process for discussion and resolution amongst their peers and management.
