Hi there If it is a double story building the answer would be yes (see CR 2014/ Reg 2 scope of aplication). If not, the contractor still needs to comply as nan employer but the client would not be obligated to ensure compliance (duties of the client reg 3 of the CR would not be applicable). Greetings

Re: PTO/PJO

The OHS Act is largely based to the principle of self-regulation by employers.

A PTO would form part of the control procedures implemented by management in order to ensure legal compliance (continues risk assessment).
