National and State Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) legislation requires commercial property owners and managers to take all reasonable steps to ensure their buildings are safe.
As an industrial property tenant and/or the property owner you are responsible for the health and safety of everyone accessing and using your premises. Occupants or persons in control of the workplace must ensure that business operations can be carried out at the site without endangering employees or any visitors to the property.
What risks and hazards should you look out for?
The property owner and tenant need to be aware of the property condition and potential hazards. A thorough property inspection will help you identify the risks that need to be rectified and confirm areas that are safe.
Safety Australia Group have qualified safety consultants that can undertake expert level WHS inspections and Risk Assessments for properties and buildings. Our safety consultants will provide you with a clear and actionable property risk assessment report for health, safety, environmental and public liability risk.
We will check the physical conditions of the premises operating as a workplace using a risk management framework and inspection protocols to prioritise and minimise potential risks associated with your managed building and property.
These assessments will identify existing hazards with the potential to cause accidents/incidents, injury, illness, environmental impact or financial loss. Our inspection process can be customised to suit the requirements of your property and specific workplace hazards. Some examples of areas that may need assessing are:
- Access & Egress
- Chemical Safety
- Confined Spaces
- Contractor Safety
- Dangerous Goods
- Disability Access
- Electrical Safety
- Ergonomics and Workstation Design
- Fire Safety & Emergency
- First Aid
- Personal Protective Equipment
- Plant and Equipment Safety
