Construction WHS Management Plans

A Construction WHS Management Plan is a written plan that sets out the arrangements for managing the health and safety issues of a construction project. The intention of a Construction WHS Management Plan is to ensure the required processes are in place to manage the risks associated with a complex construction project.

All construction projects over $250,000 must have a written WHS management plan. The plan is to be prepared by the Principal Contractor before any construction work commences.

A Construction WHS Management Plan will typically contain (but not be limited to) the following:

  • Details of people with specific health and safety responsibilities
  • Arrangements for consultation, cooperation and coordination
  • Arrangement for managing incidents
  • Site-specific health and safety rules and how people will be informed of the rules
  • Arrangements to collect and assess, monitor and review SWMS
