In our last
we took
a closer look
at Steps 7,
8 and 9 of
the Bradken
21Steps to
Safety process.
This month’s
issue shines
the spotlight
on Steps 10,
11and 12.
Ensure that identification of
hazards, risks and control
solutions form an integral part
of the design process of all
Bradken projects.
Ensure people who handle,
transport, use, install and
dispose of Bradken products
have access to the right
information to undertake
these activities in a safe and
environmentally friendly manner.
Ensure Bradken continually
strives to improve the HSE
performance of its products
and processes.
At Bradken we believe in
the concept of ‘product
stewardship’. There are a
number of aspects to this.
For example, we need to make
sure our designers take into
account the potential impact
on health, safety and the
environment of new product
designs and through the design
process reduce the risk of
negative impact. As well, we
need to make sure our
customers and end users have
sufficient OH&S information
so they are able to employ our
products safely. Taking this
stewardship approach also
helps us reduce the potential
risk of product liability legal
action arising from an
OH&S issue.

Step 11
Safety in Projects,
Maintenance & Service
All project work at Adelaide
is managed through two
main processes. A Change
Management form (Step 21 –
Change Management), is
completed for any new project.
This identifies all relevant
departments affected by the
project and specific safety
requirements that need to
be reviewed.
The second process utilises
the Step 11 – Project Manager
– Plant Identification and Safety
Data form. This is a more
detailed form, which is used by
the project manager to identify
specific safety requirements
(for example, Step 1– Identify
Hazards and Risks and Step 3
– Identify Legal Compliances).
Maintenance employees are
required to complete a Job
Safety Analysis (JSA) form for
each task to identify hazards
and risks and implement
identified safety controls.
Step 10
Safety in Product Design
As part of the 21-Step Safety
Plan process there is a
requirement that new products
manufactured at the Adelaide
Site are reviewed to ensure all
aspects of Safety, Quality and
Environmental issues are
New products are assessed
through the daily Enquiries/
New Orders meeting, which
includes representation from
all departments (Step 6 –
Communication and
Consultation). The Group
reviews each step of the
manufacturing process to
ensure the product can be
manufactured safely (Step1 –
Identify Hazards and Risks,
Step 3 Identify Legal
Compliance) and that it
meets Quality and
Environmental requirements.
Job cards and systems are
developed for production
requirements (Step 9 – Safe
Systems of Work), which may
require employees to be
retrained in relevant systems to
complete the job appropriately.
(Step 16 - Competency
Assessment and Training).
Ongoing review of the process
is monitored through the daily
Enquires/New Orders meeting
as well as through other
OHS&W processes. (Step
18 – System audits, Step 19 –
Safety Observations).
