Legislation requires plant owners and users to identify and control potential hazards. This also has implications for plant hirers and vendors.
The Plant Act (1995) requires all plant operators (including anyone who owns or uses plant machinery) to ensure that all hazards associated with plant use have been identified and controlled.
This process must be carried out by a ‘competent assessor’, taking into account environmental factors, operator skills, possible unusual operating circumstances and the “state of knowledge of the industry”.
Finally the employer must ensure effective controls are introduced and maintained. The most effective way of complying with the Act is by introducing a risk assessment, risk control, risk review and control measure maintenance system.
We are your plant operation compliance solution. Our checklists incorporate the relevant legislative requirements in each State.
Following a site visit and assessment, we prepare a comprehensive report highlighting areas where action is necessary to comply and appropriate control measures.
We supply auctioneers with on-site auction lot plant risk assessment reports allowing vendors to reduce liability in selling second hand plant. This also facilitates auctioneers responsibilities to vendors.
