Our Work Place Health and Safety Policy (WHS) stands for zero injuries with any and all incidents, no matter how trivial, to be reported and documented. Its a simple process which management and staff are encouraged to participate.
Forte Asset Services is CM3 Pre-Qualified.
WHS is an active process in any facility, this means ensuring all relevant AHS equipment, procedures, documentation and policies are actively embraced and employed. Keeping up with the changes in Legislation is a time consuming task which is why we engage an external consultant for any grey areas and any notifications of Major changes or Legislative ruling which may affect our delivery
Contractors’ personnel are required to have the minimum of at least the industry General induction “white card” in currency. Their employer need to have their WHS systems, Safe Work Method Statement and Job Safety Analysis submitted before work begins. Signatures inducting all relevant site personnel have read and UNDERSTOOD their systems and any Risk involved must be submitted for our record keeping. All incidents must be recorded.
All contractor must have the relevant Work Cover and public liability insurance cover in currency, certificates will be requested and copies recorded. we ask for $20,000,000 as a minimum for public liability insurance.
We have learned that we can have all the documentation in place, sometime personnel are lax or just not “switched on”, hence we visit site on regular visits, this increase their awareness and provides the opportunity to raise any concerns they may have on site.
