Common in the manufacturing industry is the imminent risk of asbestos and hazardous material contamination, mould, water quality and air quality issues resulting from the ageing infrastructure and equipment. Changes in economic practice has seen an increasing number of manufacturing plants decommissioned and moved offshore. In consequence, planning for closure and the associated costs are introduced to ensure the potential for exposure to contaminants are avoided; this can be carried by the performance of environmental and hazardous materials assessments.
Given the nature of this industry, with the operation of machinery, utilisation of various technologies and workplace setting in facilities like factories, it is imperative that workplaces observe and comply with WHS/OHS standards.
It is a WHS/OHS obligation to ensure that contractors and subcontractors are working in a safe environment, and that they are implementing safe work practices on site. Carrying out risk assessments to ensure this is fundamental to the various WHS/OHS legislation in Australia and New Zealand.
