The NSW government’s WHS guidelines aim to improve construction industry safety. They’re designed to take a consistent approach to WHS across the entire construction industry, mitigate safety risks and support the government’s WHS laws.
Who needs to comply
Any construction company tendering for a NSW government contract must meet the NSW WHS guidelines. There are different requirements for tenders under $1 million and over $1 million.
With the current NSW government budget containing the largest ever stipulation for building and construction, and with its planned construction of dozens of schools, hospitals and infrastructure projects, there’s never been a better time for construction companies in NSW.
Any contractors wishing to participate in these NSW government-funded projects must comply with the NSW WHS Guidelines.
How to use the Guidelines
The NSW WHS Guidelines are designed to be used by contractors during the planning and implementation of their safety management systems and WHS management plans. Contractors should audit their organisation against the guidelines and provide evidence to prove their compliance.
