Description

Hosted by: Bluescope Steel Hastings


Blescope Steel

Maintenance and repair tasks are often performed by contractors and it is a must that you ensure their Safety. Pemits and Isolations are a critical part of a safety system to ensure the safety of not only your own staff but quite critical when comes to ensuring the safety of Contractors.

In guidance, Worksafe states employers should plan and scope contractors work, but also in their management consider Task creep, the Tender process(preferred contractors) and specific contract requirements. Permits, Isolations and procedures can be quite key to managing risks and ensuring safety of contractors and employees by making sure plant is shut down, locked tagged and isolated prior to any inspection, cleaning, maintenance or repair.

Permits and Procedures

While very necessary, these systems can take quite a bit to get setup and going, quite a bit in dedication and discipline to employ. There can always be opportunities to make them less onerous on the business and there will always be opportunities to improve them further in their effectiveness.


Loto

Bluescope Steel with a mixed workforce of employees and contractors, have put considerable effort to manage contractors and in their systems of permits and isolations to ensure safety. They are keen to share their insights and learnings and also take us on a plant tour to see their processes and systems in action.

What are you doing to manage your contractors ? and how are you using Permits and Isolations to ensure safety? Come learn from Bluescope steel and share what you are doing with others, so we can share and learn from each other on how we can collectively improve not only the effectiveness but also the efficiency of these systems and processes.

About SIRF Rt Common Interest Work Groups

All SIRF Rt events are designed to provide a safe environment for open discussion with peers on the topic of interest they are working on, in and around. SIRF Rt Common Interest Work Groups (CWIG’s) provide the best forum for peer-to-peer learning and best practice sharing. Participants are asked to bring something for ‘show and tell’ about the topic of the day as it applies at their organisation – a mini presentation (2 slides), something that you can present in 5min maximum. It could comprise a few photos, a brief descriptions of the current efforts/learnings, a couple of charts or graphs – anything that will help improve the discussion or share knowledge or expertise. After each company shares the deeper discussion follows, guided by our practiced facilitators.
