Frequently Asked Questions
What does OHS stand for in the workplace?
OHS stands for occupational health and safety. It is a set of rules, regulations, and policies designed to ensure employees’ safety in the workplace. OHS aims to prevent accidents, injuries, illnesses, and diseases related to work activities.
It includes providing effective training programs on potential workplace hazards and implementing effective hazard control systems. In addition, an employer must provide workers with safety equipment like protective gear when necessary and access to medical care for an injury or illness while performing job duties.
Furthermore, employers are required by law to conduct regular assessments and risk assessments of their working environment to identify any possible hazards that could cause harm or illness among employees and ensure these risks are addressed accordingly.
Complying with OHS regulations protects employees from injury. It also protects employers from costly legal proceedings if something were to go wrong due to negligence in meeting such standards. Therefore, strictly adhering to OHS regulations is essential from a moral standpoint and business standpoint.
How long does it take to install OHS and WorkSafe line markings?
It depends on the size and complexity of the project. Generally, it takes a few days to weeks to install Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) and WorkSafe line markings. It includes time for planning, measuring, and preparation work.
Preparation work may consist of surface treatment, cleaning, priming and any repairs necessary before the striping materials’ application. Please speak to our expert to discuss your requirement and get an idea of the time required to complete your WorkSafe line marking job.
How do you install OHS or WorkSafe markings?
The installation process typically consists of three main steps:
- Pre-marking Preparation – This includes site measurements to determine the layout of markings required by OHS regulations and customer needs. Additionally, this step may consist of surface treatments such as patching cracks or dirt removal for optimal adhesion preparation in advance. Finally, we will mark the spaces according to safety signage design plans. It helps to create physical barriers around hazardous areas during the installation process.
- Paint or Striping Material Application – We will select material after pre-marking preparation. Depending on your requirement, it may be a vinyl tape application (available in various lines depending on the environment) or paint coatings (including long-life aliphatic coating options).
- Finalisation – Upon completion, an assessment is conducted by qualified personnel to ensure all applicable Australian Standards have been met before releasing the area back into use.
All these steps require expertise and proper execution. So, we consider adequate scheduling or budget compliance for OHS line marking projects.
What’s the cost of OHS industrial line markings?
The cost of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) or WorkSafe marking solutions depends on several factors, including the type and size of the business for which these solutions are being sought. Generally, OHS or WorkSafe marking solutions can range from a few hundred to thousands of dollars.
Lower-cost OHS or WorkSafe marking solutions may be considered for smaller businesses with limited resources and operations. These basic systems consist of labelling floors and walls; setting up organisation-wide safety protocols; conducting periodic risk assessments; providing safety equipment supplies such as gloves, hard hats and protective clothing; training workers on proper safety practices; ensuring that any hazardous materials used in the workplace are correctly stored and labelled; monitoring activities to ensure they comply with regulations that govern workplace safety practices.
Higher-cost OHS or WorkSafe marking solutions may be necessary for larger organisations with more complex operations. Such comprehensive systems include a wide range of features such as advanced hazard recognition technologies, job site auditing tools tailored for specific types of industries, surveillance cameras to monitor individual workplaces for compliance issues throughout multiple locations, etc.
In short, you should invest in OHS or WorkSafe line markings depending on your company’s size and complexity.
