Common Tunneling and Excavation Activities: Control Measures Mobile App
The principal contractor and subcontractors have an obligation under the OHS Act to provide and maintain a workplace that is safe and without risks to health for their employees and others in relation to those matters over which they have control.
How does it work?
Control measures to prevent persons being injured during all stages of the tunnel construction and fit out must be provided and maintained as part of a safe system of work. The systems of work and control measures selected are generally determined by individual job factors identified in the consultation and risk assessment process. The Common Tunneling and Excavation Activities: Control Measures mobile app outlines common hazards, risks and control measures. The app may be used to identify some of the common workplace hazards related to common tunnelling and excavation activities.
