Site, Plant and Machinery Risk Assessments
Risk assessments of any plant and machinery used within your organisation is essential in ensuring that safe operating procedures are utilized.
Health Safety Environment Australia can conduct assessments against the requirements of the State legislative requirements, and the relevant parts of AS 4024 (Safety of Machinery) to ensure the machinery is safe and guarded adequately before use.
Health Safety Environment Australia will outline the areas of risk and their risk levels, together with a list of recommendations to ensure the plant is safe so far as is reasonable before it is operational. This list of recommendations takes into account the most practicable level of guarding to comply with any appropriate legislative requirements.
A typical assessment would include:
- A physical inspection of the item of plant and the current levels of control
- A review of current Safe / Standard Operating procedures and any past risk assessments
- A review of the requirements of AS 4024 against the findings of the inspectionA detailed written report that will outline the recommendations based on the information available and observations made.
