These requirements apply to all NSW government construction projects, and provide the framework for applying a systematic approach to the management of WHS.

For contracts valued at below $1m million, contracts will only be awarded to contractors that are able to prepare and implement an acceptable WHS (OHS) Management Plan for construction.

The WHS Management Plan must be in writing, accessible and easily understood by workers on the site. It may not be necessary to communicate the entire WHS Management Plan to all workers; including contractors and subcontractors, however, they must be made aware of the parts that are applicable to the work they are carrying out.

The WHS Management Plan must be implemented, maintained and kept up to date during the course of the work on the site.

A WHS (OHS) Management Plan sets out the arrangements to manage work health and safety on a construction project. The intention of a WHS (OHS) Management Plan is to ensure the risks associated with a construction project are managed, as there are usually many contractors and subcontractors involved and circumstances can change quickly from day to day.

The WHS Management Plan must be in writing, accessible and easily understood by workers on the site. It may not be necessary to communicate the entire WHS Management Plan to all workers; including contractors and subcontractors, however, they must be made aware of the parts that are applicable to the work they are carrying out.

The level of detail required for a WHS Management Plan will depend on how complex the workplace is (in particular, the number of contractors at the workplace at any one time) and the risks involved in the work.

Benchmark OHS Consulting Pty Ltd. can also assist in the preparation and collation of the key information relevant to the work into a formal WHS Management Plan for the Construction Project in accordance with these requirements.
