Checklist from Environmental Guidelines for Major Construction Sites (Australia) Mobile App

When planning construction activities for a proposed project, the environmental impact should be taken into consideration. While the construction industry has become more accustomed to compliance requirements, there is still progress to be made.

The Checklist from Environmental Guidelines for Major Construction Sites (Australia) mobile app summarizes the specific environmental issues that need to be addressed on Australian construction sites. The manager can check off each issue as it relates to the site.

The issues are listed in the same order as they appear in the Guidelines. The app includes: Compliance with legislative requirements, pre-construction planning, environmental assessment, risk assessment information, assessing and managing risks, pre-construction works, environmental management plan, environmental management system, prepare plan, land disturbance, erosion, stormwater management, erosion and sediment control devices, de-watering work site, dust control, stockpiles and batters, working in waterways and floodplains, noise and vibration (sound level), waste minimization, contaminated material and soil, hazardous waste, emergency procedures, air quality, litter, storage of chemicals and fuel, road cleaning, concrete batching plants and inspections, monitoring, audits and other topics pertaining to safety and the environment.

Use the Checklist from Environmental Guidelines for Major Construction Sites (Australia) mobile app to evaluate your construction site projects and identify areas of improvement. Upon submission, the Checklist from Environmental Guidelines for Major Construction Sites (Australia) mobile app generates a PDF that is automatically saved to the GoCanvas Cloud. Though this app is specifically designed for Australia, it can be easily modified for other areas also.
