As an OHSE officer, you are responsible for providing a safe workplace for all staff and any visitors that may come on site.
Not all of these may apply to your worksite.
The first headache is getting a good understanding of what your organisations legal responsibilities are, and what practices can be put in
place to ensure that a safe workplace is maintained.
In Australia, it is the State Governments that are primarily responsible for workplace health and safety regulations.
There are also Federal Government agencies that are responsible for certain areas of health and safety. For example, ARPANSA (Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency).
Watch out for the unknown unknowns. For example, it is not uncommon for an organisation to be unaware of the risks that exposure to electromagnetic fields may pose. Electromagnetic fields are sources of non-ionising radiation that are present around electrical equipment and telecommunications installations.
Once you have established what your obligations are, the second headache is finding an instrument that will reliably monitor the workplace in question.
It is vital that you select the right instrument for the application at hand. After all the best cricket bat in the world will not help you win a game of tennis.
This is where ADM can help you.
We care that you find the correct instrument for your particular application. Our friendly team is on hand to assist you in ensuring the instrument you buy, or rent is suitable for the task at hand.
