With the introduction of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (“WHS”) we are modifying our operating policy to improve the health and safety of those who work, live or visit our two villages.
Starting from July 1, 2012 we will require all contractors undertaking work in Bindawalla Gardens and Kurrajong Sanctuary on behalf of New Concept Development Pty Ltd or NASA Investments Pty Ltd to sign a WHS undertaking before any work is commenced. This undertaking requires the contractor or any sub-contractors and or their staff to complete our WHS induction and comply with our WHS policy.
Of particular concern to management is the use of our roadways. These are “Shared Zones” with a 10 KPH speed limit where pedestrians having the absolute right of way.
Our expectation is that, as an initial step you will provide the Bindawalla office with a copy of your Certificate of Currency and a signed copy of the undertaking in Attachment K. We will also expect a Hazard Assessment Form to be provided for each job undertaken in our village. This Form does not necessarily need to be the same as the sample provided in Attachment G.
We value the service you provide to our villages and would appreciate you taking the extra time to ensure we all satisfy the requirements of the Work Health and Safety Act 2012 and its accompanying regulations and codes.
