National Standards for Plant and Machinery www.worksafe.act.gov.au
Plant is a major cause of workplace accidents in Australia. There are between 65,000 and 70,000 plant-related workers' compensation claims costing some $550 million in workers' compensation payments each year. In addition, there are over 200 plant-related fatalities every year Australia wide. Because of the risk of injury associated with the use of plant, State and Territory jurisdictions have enacted many measures over the years in order to reduce both the incidence and severity of accidents.
Safety is critical in the operation of plant and equipment such as cranes, forklifts, elevating work platforms, excavators, backhoes, etc .
You should never operate any piece of mobile plant or equipment unless it is part of your job and you have been fully trained and are competent to do so.
Even if you hold a High Risk Work Licence or Certificate of Competency to operate plant or equipment, you must still be provided with any additional information, instruction, training and supervision that is necessary for you to be able to safely carry out your work using the plant and equipment that is available to you.
Code of Practice requirements: "Before a person is allowed to operate a Crane or Heavy Machinery the employer must assess the persons knowledge and understanding of safe operation or seek further evidence of their competence or provide additional training. All training must be recorded."
"In 2009, 450 Australian workers were killed & an injury happened every 4 minutes"
Companies: Improve safety by recording your operators & tradesman training, skills and experience to improve competency assessments. (Log books are a big help with safety audits)
Operators, Riggers, Tradesman : Improve your employment prospects by logging your work history.
