To assist the Body Corporate in meeting it’s obligations under a variety of legislation, including the Work Health & Safety Act 2011 and Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011, Building Fire Safety Regulations 2008 and duty of care at common law, to maintain the common property in a safe condition, free from the risk of harm.

The inspection is conducted using visual observation and measurement where necessary. This process drew reference from applicable legislation such as the Work Health & Safety Act 2011, Electrical Safety Act 2002, Building Fire Safety Regulations 2008, Building, and Local Government Acts. Other references used are Codes of Practice, Australian Standards, the Building Code of Australia, and general common law principles.

The common areas of the building and surrounds was inspected with particular (but not limited to) focus on the following items where present:

  • Rooftops
  • Plant and equipment
  • Swimming pool and recreation areas
  • Lighting
  • Security
  • Loading dock areas
  • Chemicals and other hazardous substances
  • Floor surfaces
  • Fire escapes and fire safety installations
  • Driveways, pathways and vehicle parking areas
  • Documents and record keeping
  • Electrical switchboards and installations
  • General building structure
  • Doors and windows
  • Gardens and grounds

The inspection process is not aimed at finding fault with, or to place blame on, any particular individual or group for deficiencies that may be found. Rather, its aim is to encourage health & safety compliance via consultation and cooperation between all parties so they can work together to achieve realistic and practical outcomes.

This report is a ‘snapshot’ survey of the health and safety standard of the premises at the time of inspection. With the passage of time, conditions and situations can change, therefore the inspection and subsequent report should not be relied on as the sole control for health and safety at the premises. Once any hazards identified in this report are controlled, continuing vigilance of health and safety is required of all people associated with the building’s operations. For example, residents, guests and workers could be asked to be involved with general safety and to provide feedback on WH&S concerns so that problems are able to be addressed promptly.
