Fit For Work

Fit For Work

Are you and your equipment fit for work? 

Every day, your responsibility is to assess if you are physically fit to work.

For example:

  • Have you had enough sleep? Download our Fatigue Management Policy
  • Did you injure yourself on the weekend playing sport that will affect your ability to work safely?
  • Can you work safely?

 

You also must assess your equipment (vehicle, load restraint equipment, smart phone/PDA device).

For example:

  • Is your vehicle and equipment fit for work?
  • Is your vehicle and equipment in good working order?
  • Are your vehicle and equipment checks all up to date?

 

There are also statutory obligations:

  • Is your vehicle registration current?
  • Is your drivers licence current?

 

When you log on each day, ANC will ask if you and your equipment are fit for work. We take these declarations seriously and so must you.

You should not work if you are not able to do so, or your equipment is not safe to operate.
