This year, new Work Health & Safety rules replaced the old OH&S regulations. At Courtney & Wise, we've always taken the health and safety of our workmen and of our customers very seriously, and we're fully compliant with the new regulations, just as we were with the older ones.
Here are the major changes affecting painters:
- Tradesmen licensed for asbestos removal must now have a certified safety management system.
- More comprehensive risk management plans for lead risk work will be required.
- Falls from two metres, rather than the previous three metres, will require safe work methods.
