16.2

Unread post by Mc Safe » 14 Mar 2016, 19:25

Hi.

How many 16.2's may a company have and if the company doesn't have an official/dedicated Safety Officer, who would be the most likely candidate/s for this?

Thank you.

How many?
You can have as many as you like.

Who to be this 16.2?
It depends on the type of work, most people fail at their appointments, thinking that they should just appoint by management rank and not by competency.
Some suitable people would be; production manager, general manager, engineer, site manager, and safety officer.

however most of these mentioned above are not safety specific (except safety officer) I would then also recommend sending the appointed person on OHSAct training as well as Legal liability training. your appointment is only as valid as the appointed person understanding his duties.

I get you guys, but who should appoint the SHEQ Coordinator as the 16.2, remember normally the CEO appoint manager as 16.2 and then the manager manage the other appointments,
