The Department's Minimum Construction Safety Expectations
The Department's Minimum Construction Safety Expectations specify Worker Health & Safety requirements applicable for all Department construction worksites.
These requirements do not diminish or replace any responsibilities, duties, requirements under the WHS Act and Regulations 2012, South Australian Codes of Practice and Australian Standards, nor do they prevent organisations from implementing higher levels of safety practices. They provide clarity as to what the Department expects as a safety minimum on all construction sites.
Together, the Department's Minimum Construction Safety Expectations and the Department's Safety Culture Measures describe the operational and behavioral safety standards required of everyone working on Department construction sites. They do not prescribe ‘how’ to do your business, but clarify ‘what’ is expected onsite to make it safe for everyone.
