5. Interpret and apply safety information and documentation:
- OHS management plans
- Work method statements, material safety data sheets, safety signs
There are several types of OHS documents that should be at the workplace. These documents provide information about health and safety information in the workplace and provide a way hazards, incidents and injuries can be reported. You as an employee or subcontractor have a right to inspect these documents in the workplace
Examples of these documents include:
- Site Specific Safety Management Plan
This document gives an overall view of the hazards that could be encountered at the site and the planned method to control these hazards. It will also include the points of contact after hours and in case of emergency. This is used in conjunction with the JSA.
- Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)
MSDS exists for materials that are hazardous. The sheets are supplied by the manufacturer or supplier and act as a register of all hazardous materials at the workplace.
