Health & Safety Policy

Occupational Health and Safety

The various State Health and Safety Acts have introduced statutory duties of care for employers, employees and others. Notwithstanding this, David R Johns Project Management regards excellence in safety management to be a primary business objective and to this end has developed a formal Occupational Health, Safety and Rehabilitation (OHS&R) Policy and System framed with the objective of achieving a high level of pro-active OHS&R management throughout the company.

Based on the requirements of the Australian Standard AS480l - Occupational Health and Safety Systems and the NSW Government Guidelines for OHS&R Management, our OHS&R System conforms.

David R Johns Project Management OH&S management system meets the requirements of the NSW Government OHS Management System Guidelines 4th Edition June 2004.

Management at Project Level

OHS&R Management at the project level is detailed in project-specific Safety Plans. The Site Safety Plan provides the necessary framework, which ensures all personnel are working to clearly defined and measurable objectives consistent with the company's legal obligations and OHS&R Policy.

Key areas covered by the plan would include but are not necessary limited to:

Implementation of the Safety Plan is assured through a combination of formal internal audit and management review at defined intervals.

A high level of OH&S performance requires commitment at all levels. In recognition of the important role that all participants play in maintaining a healthy and safe work environment, it is David R Johns Project Management policy to encourage the establishment of workplace based (project) OH&S Committees made up of representatives from both management and subcontractors.
