SFP ran an All Staff Toolbox Talk across the framework with the key focus being ‘Working at Heights’. This was the result of recent incident within a partner organisation outside the framework in this critical risk activity. An All Staff Safety Forum was also delivered which included an emphasis on the updated COVIDSafe Plan.
SFP continues to work with MWC and other Framework Partners in developing the agenda for upcoming Framework Safety Intervention.
So we have the right tools for Waste Management, Gina Sotelo, our Environmental and Sustainability Advisor, recently ran an in-depth training session for staff.
As a producer of waste, the General Environmental Duty requires SFPJV to track and record what is generated and let EPA know every time a reportable priority waste changes hands.
This means that we have to ensure that, where practicable, safe and appropriate, waste be classified and properly separated.
All waste generated onsite must be tracked and recorded regardless of its classification, this is done using the Internal Waste Register with the help of the Diary Waste Disposal Register (used by the contractor or at the gate for daily recording).
All supporting documents and guidance material can be found in the SharePoint site in the Waste Management folder.
These practices will ensure that we’re:
- Complying with our GED.
- Tracking for further reporting (NGER, Sustainability, etc)
- Identifying the amount of waste diverted from landfill.
- Understanding our contribution to a circular economy.
For training on how to use or create an EPA Waste Tracking system, please contact Gina.Sotelo@sfpjv.com.au.
