Property Risk Auditing
The Health and Safety at Work Act and accompanying regulations require a PCBU to identify hazards in their workplace and ensure that all areas of the workplace are without risks to the health and safety of any person.
ACA can conduct property risk assessments within commercial, industrial and retail sites in order to identify hazards and assess the risks to staff, contractors and visitors. The assessment covers legislative requirements as well as industry best practice standards. The assessment involves a site inspection and documentation review. A report will then be prepared including the assessment findings and recommended actions.
The following key risk areas are included in the assessment. These can be tailored as required:
- Fire Safety and Emergency Measures;
- Asbestos and Hazardous Materials;
- Hazardous Substances;
- Cooling Towers;
- Confined Spaces;
- Working at Heights;
- Indoor Air Quality, Noise and Lighting;
- Plant and Equipment (including electrical safety);
- Radio Frequency Radiation;
- Car Parking and Traffic Management;
- Public Liability and Management of Common Areas (including Access and Egress, Disability access and First Aid);
- Environmental Management;
- Contractor Management; and
- Earthquake Prone Building Readiness.
