The health and safety of our employees, the public, the community and property is Ropetek Services’ number one priority. The safety of these aspects will be ensured through staff being familiar with OH&S guidelines, the conducting of risk assessments for all jobs, preparation of Safe Work Method Statements and Risk Management Plans, adhering to WorkCover specifications, relevant education and training and through the debriefing of all jobs that have a risk component.

The OH&S Act (Part3, 15.2c) states that an employer must:

“…provide such information, instruction, training and supervision  as may be necessary to ensure the health and safety at work of his employees

Therefore the responsibility is on the employer, property owner and building manager to ensure that correct and adequate training has been conducted to ensure employees have the appropriate qualifications to carry out work and use appropriate equipment.
