Plant Risk Management

Has your Plant been assessed by
a Competent Assessor?

With the introduction of the Plant Act in 1995 came a requirement for all plant operators (this includes anyone who owns or uses plant machinery) to ensure that all hazards associated with the use of plant have been identified and controlled.

This process must be carried out by a ‘competent assessor’, taking into account environmental factors, operator skills, possible unusual operating circumstances as well as considering the “state of knowledge of the industry”.

Finally, the employer must ensure effective controls are introduced and maintained. The most effective way of complying with this Act is by conducting a plant risk assessment and putting in place a control measure maintenance system.

JTA are able to supply fleet owners, owner operators and hire and construction companies with on-site hazard and plant risk assessment services. We have developed checklists which incorporate the requirements of the relevant legislation in each state.

Following a site visit and assessment, we prepare a comprehensive report highlighting areas where action is necessary in order for compliance to be achieved, together with recommendations of appropriate control measures.

In addition, we supply auctioneers with on-site auction lot plant risk assessment reports allowing vendors to reduce liability in selling second hand plant. This also facilitates auctioneers responsibilities to vendors.

JTA’s team of specialists service all Australian cities including Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin and Hobart, also now servicing New Zealand.
