Ensuring controls are in place and effective for identified hazards
Safety documents and pre-work briefings are there to alert us to the hazards we face on each and every job and what we need to put in place to control these hazards.
If you believe a control is not adequate or has not been fully implemented, challenge each other and stop the job until an effective control has been applied to reduce the risk of harm.
SWMS and Safe Work Instructions (SWIs) must be relevant to the hazards of the task, be periodically reviewed with consideration of any additional controls that may be available. Once reviewed, SWMS and SWIs must be updated with the controls and briefed to all workers.
