Site Plant Machinery Risk Assessment OHS HSE Australia

Plant Risk Assessment (PRA)

A Site, Plant and Machinery Risk Assessment by HSE Australia will outline areas of risk and their risk levels, together with a list of recommendations to ensure the plant is safe to operate and maintain. This list of recommendations considers the most practicable level of guarding to comply with the appropriate legislative requirements.

A typical assessment includes:

  • a physical inspection of the item of plant and the current levels of control
  • a review of current safe/standard operating procedures and any past risk assessments
  • a review of the requirements of AS 4024 against the findings of the inspection
  • a detailed written report that will outline the recommendations based on the information available and observations made.

We are experienced in conducting independent audits that use an organisation’s existing audit checklists and audit tools. Our success stems from our focus on and support of our clients’ individual Occupational Health and Safety programs.
