Dual Focus – The Health Risk Assessment and Task Analysis Project

Solutions Through a Balanced Approach

The Challenge

One of our long term clients in the aerospace industry recently implemented a new and improved health program. As the company has over one-thousand employees, the scale and complexity of the program was considerable and required careful planning and foresight.

The Solution

Utilising our skills and experience in occupational hygiene and ergonomics, we worked with the client to design a project that met their needs.

Key tasks were identified for each exposure group and a detailed task analysis was performed using an iPad app (built by our Brisbane based GCG consultant, Adam O’Malley) specifically created for the project. During the task analysis, a detailed assessment (similar to a health risk assessment) was completed.

The assessment resulted in the workplace receiving a qualitative report outlining key risks – and the roles and tasks to which they were attributed. This assisted the client to understand occupational hygiene monitoring that needed to occur, and risks relating to hazardous manual tasks and hazardous chemicals.

The outcome was a complete Job Dictionary showing the ergonomic body heat mapping, the analysed key tasks, and other key ergonomic data. This information provides valuable input into the fit for work program, and allows the client to prioritise health and safety solutions for those in the workforce who need it most.

The project was rolled out across Australia and New Zealand, and has proved to save time, costs, and effort needed across the board.

Evaluating the Storage of Hazardous Chemicals in Australia

One of Australia’s primary health and safety Regulators were required to conduct a detailed review of the current guidance material available relating to the storage of hazardous chemicals. The goal was to determine if the current guidelines were adequate and practical to support the Australian Industry.

Hazardous Chemicals and Dangerous Goods – Simplifying the situation

One of Australia's largest Rail Operator needed assistance in understanding the cause of recurring unsatisfactory results ensuing from their hazardous chemical and dangerous goods assurance activities.

Insurance and Building Remediation

Working with insurance and building companies involved in damaged structure claims can add complexity to an already challenging environment. Following a natural disaster in a remote location we are engaged to undertake assessment of a facility to determine the level of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) contamination and the subsequent level of risk.

Asbestos Containing Materials in Fires

An Australian Defence Force department building is extensively damaged in a fire requiring urgent remediation. We are contacted by the ADF and asked to promptly respond to the their needs, and to complete an asbestos survey and assessment report outlining the key remediation risks.
