South Regional TAFE aims to be an exemplar for Work, Health and Safety. It takes seriously its obligations for looking after workers, students, and the public and is committed to creating a safe and healthy work environment where hazards are controlled, and a learning culture is supported.
PCBU's and their Workers must always comply with South Regional TAFE’s safety and health requirements.
All Workers are to be familiar with the information provided within the Induction below.
Projects and maintenance of college buildings, grounds or services infrastructure are managed by Facilities and Services at the Albany and Bunbury campuses and by the Campus Manager at all other regional campuses.
Workers are to undertake assigned work in a responsible and safe manner and as described in the scope of work. PCBU's have a responsibility to ensure that new workers engaged by them are familiar with health and safety requirements of the college and that they are always properly supervised. Additionally, PCBU's will ensure their Workers:
- Have suitable experience and be fully competent to perform the planned tasks
- Possess all the necessary licences, permits, registrations and insurance required to perform the work safely and in compliance with appropriate regulations
- Be notified of any potential hazards associated with the location or use of the area where the work is to be carried out
- Understand the college’s emergency procedures
- Ensure all Workers have read and understood the college's Induction
It is not South Regional TAFE’s responsibility to provide instructions on how to undertake work tasks, training or supervision in the activities for which the Worker has been engaged to undertake or would be reasonably assumed to have knowledge or control.
To remain an approved PCBU, current certificates of insurance must be submitted annually. Additionally, all Workers are required to review the Induction every year.
Workers shall comply with all requirements of the Work, Health and Safety Act 2020, relevant Australian Standards, Codes of Practice and Guidance Notes published by WorkSafe Western Australia and other relevant laws. It is the responsibility of the PCBU's to ensure that their Workers comply with this legislation.

Upon arrival at South Regional TAFE and prior to commencing work, all Workers must:
- Complete sign in at the Facilities and Services Office (Albany or Bunbury) or reception at all other campuses
- Ensure the pass is worn and visible at all times while on campus
- Advise your SRT Contact Officer that you have arrived and are ready to commence work
- If required, obtain keys and/or access cards
- If required, ensure permits to work have been approved
Prior to commencing work, the Worker must implement appropriate barriers, warning signs and any other steps required, to minimise risks to health and safety of all persons in the vicinity of the works.
The Worker is to notify their SRT Contact Officer upon completion of the works. A final inspection will be carried out to ensure completion to the required standard. The Worker must ensure that the worksite is left tidy and free from hazards, that includes removal of all refuse and materials in an environmentally friendly, non-hazardous manner.
At the completion of work or the end of the work day, the Worker is to return to the Facilities and Services office or reception and complete sign-out. This includes return of the pass, keys and/or access cards and sign off from any open permits to work. Workers are not permitted to retain college keys and/or cards overnight.
A copy of the Induction and other policies and procedures are available from your SRT Contact Officer.
