STEP 11 CASE STUDY
Ensure the hazard and risk trail
is maintained through all facets
of project management.
Safety of personnel, property
and the environment has always
been a high priority for Bradken,
right across all aspects of our
business operations. We also
need to maintain the right
documentation for two key
reasons – to verify how we have
actually implemented our safety
policy to meet regulatory
requirements and also to provide
a high level of information,
training and instruction to
employees about potential
hazards and the risk controls
applied to plant.
This year Adelaide will utilise the
“PRIDE” process to assist
maintenance personnel with the
development of their JSAs.
PRIDE stands for:
P
lan the task: What tools, permits
etc do I need to do the task safely?
R
isk assess: Conduct an
assessment of the hazards and
risk controls. Complete a JSA.
I
nitiate the identified safety
requirements/behaviours as per
the JSA.
D
o the job. Carry out the job in
line with the safety requirements
of the JSA.
E
valuate the risk during and after
the job has been completed.
Step 12
Purchasing &
Contractor
Management
All new equipment, plant,
chemicals etc that are brought
on to site require the
completion of a Change
Management form. As outlined
in Step 11, this form helps
identify the relevant
departments affected by the
change as well as the required
steps in the 21-Step Safety
Plan that may require action.
Contractor Management on
site requires all contractors
conducting work to be inducted
to the site (Step 13 – Safety
Recruitment Induction and
Assimilation). Inductions are
valid for 12 months.
Only Bradken employees who
have completed the Authorised
Persons training course are
authorised to engage
contractors (Step 16 –
Competency Assessment
and Training).
As part of Bradken’s
commitment to safety for all
who visit or work on site, the
authorised person is
responsible for the safety
of the contractors that they
have contracted.
The authorised person has to
complete a Task Hazard
Analysis (THA) form to highlight
the hazards and recommend
controls for the area the
contractor will be working in.
The contractor is provided with
the THA and has to develop a
JSA incorporating the
information from the THA as
well as the indentified hazards
and controls for the task they
are doing.
On completion of the JSA, the
authorised person will issue a
Permit to Work which then
allows the contractor to carry
out the required task. (Step 9 –
Safe Systems of Work).
The overall Permit to Work
Process demonstrates
Adelaide’s commitment to the
safety of its Contractors by
having a safe system of work
that ensures both Bradken and
Contractor employees have
input into their safety on site.
STEP 12 CASE STUDY
Ensure potential hazards and
risks associated with the
purchase of goods and services
are identified and appropriately
controlled.
We don’t operate in isolation.
External suppliers are also vital
to Bradken’s ability to service
customers, which means our
reputation and safety record is
also potentially influenced by
the safety practices of our
contractors. Because of this it is
very important we specify health
and safety requirements to
contractors tendering for works.
By ensuring that health and
safety requirements are clearly
identified in specification
documents, we convey these
two key messages:
1
Because OH&S is such
an important priority to the
Bradken way of conducting
business, we embed it in all
aspects of our operations,
including contractor
engagement; and
2
We expect contractors to
be able to demonstrate they
not only have an appropriate
OH&S management system
but also they can verify it is
put into practice.
