Guide Handling Transporting Cash (Australia): Transporting Cash Mobile App
The Guide Handling Transporting Cash (Australia): Transporting Cash mobile app provides practical guidance for persons conducting a business or undertaking about managing health and safety risks associated with handling and transporting cash.
How does it work?
This includes managing the risk of robbery and armed hold-ups. Moving cash from a workplace to a bank exposes workers to the risk of robbery. Where it is not reasonably practicable to use a security service to transport cash, use a bank close to the business to deposit takings. Change the procedures for transferring cash often including routes, times, schedules, the amounts transferred and the vehicle used for the transfer. Avoid banking alone and rotate the task so it is not always the same person visiting the bank. Cash should not be taken home. Many small business people have been robbed after driving home at night with the day’s takings in a car with the company name printed on the side.
