Project Overview and context

Subject: Work health and safety management system

Throughout the refurbishment, you will be responsible for maintaining and ensuring compliance with the WHSMS. Please refer to the project background, provided below, for more information. For further details on what I require you to do, please refer to the Required documents and equipment section above.
Kind regards, Rose Hargreaves Chief Executive Officer

We will need to employ workers across a range of occupations and trades, including engineers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and cabinet-makers, and painters. The following is a broad scope of works:

Construct new walls

Install new cabinetry
Clean and ready site for occupation The project is expected to be completed in three months. Nail guns, jackhammers, power tools, elevated work platforms and scaffolding, and a range of other building and construction equipment will be used extensively. There will be a skip on site for waste disposal. There will be an appointed Site Manager with overall responsibility for managing the day to day work flow, ordering equipment and supplies, signage and hiring/firing contractors/ trades. The Site Manager will have two Team Leaders to oversee specific tasks.
The building being renovated fronts a busy street and construction activities will need to ensure vehicle and pedestrian traffic is safe and uninterrupted.

confirming legislative requirements
identifying relevant roles and responsibilities
resourcing the WHS management system
establishing appropriate induction and training
providing participation and consultation arrangements for establishing the WHS management system
