Human Resources have been working on a revised version of the Noise and Sound Safety Management chapter of the HSW Handbook.
The key points for noting:
- A new action has been included for all workers (Refer 3.1) to report any work related noise and sound safety hazards/issue(s), in addition to the Supervisor/person in control of the area/activity.
- Supervisor responsibilities have been clarified.
- A new Appendix C has been provided, to assist Supervisors in the selection of appropriate measures to eliminate/minimise the risk of exposure;
- Monitoring of overdue corrective actions is still a requirement, however the Faculty/Division has the option of monitoring through a Faculty/Division management forum or committee, to provide flexibility.
Consultation over the Chapter will be advertised through Staff News under the Policy section.
It would be appreciated if you could review and provide any feedback/suggested amendments to the HSW Team via email using track changes before COB Monday 28 January 2019.
Should you wish to discuss any of the changes or requirements please do not hesitate to contact your Senior HSW Advisor.
