Identification and control of non-conformances

All persons engaged in work on a construction site must have completed a General Induction course and have been (or are being) issued with the relevant General Induction card (white card) before being allowed to commence work on the site. Details of all training (including general induction training) are included on the Training and Competencies Register. (b) Workplace-specific induction Persons who will be working in a construction workplace will be provided with information regarding WHS issues relevant to this workplace before commencing work activities. This training will be provided by the workplace supervisor in conjunction, and any other personnel as required. This training will include at least the following topics:  Workplace WHSE management  Workplace layout  Specific task or job requirements  Traffic hazards and vehicle/plant movement  General hazards present in the workplace (including specific control measures)  Hazardous materials controls  Personal protective clothing and equipment (PPE) requirements  Workplace emergency procedures (including reporting of incidents)  Location, selection and use of fire extinguishers  Identity of first aid attendants and location of first aid kits and facilities. Workplace-specific Safety Rules will be included in inductions for all employees, subcontractors and visitors to the workplace. We will ensure that all persons under our control adhere to these rules at all times, with offenders subjected to appropriate disciplinary measures. We will ensure that all persons are provided with a copy of the rules, or shown a copy of the rules which will also be displayed in the workplace. Each person will sign an attendance record as evidence that they have attended training and been properly instructed in the topics listed on the attendance record. Subcontractors and visitors to the workplace will be inducted along the lines of the topics listed above, and will be given by the workplace supervisor or the WHS officer before the person will be allowed to commence work or visit the site. Only workers who have attended this induction will be permitted into the workplace.

A Training and Competencies Register will be compiled specifying the training and competencies of persons who will be undertaking these occupations and tasks.
