whs laws

What are the Work, Health and Safety (WHS) Laws? Are you protected?

As you might be aware, the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WHS Act 2011), has replaced state based Occupational Health and Safety Legislation from January 2012.  Under the new WHS Act an employer/business owner, Person Conducting Business or Undertaking (PCBU), must provide a safe working environment (for all employees and visitors), at all times.  This is even more important when members of the public regularly visit a business or commercial premises.

Electrical hazards in the workplaces are major cause of trauma, injury and death to Australian workers.

There are significant fines for non compliance with the WHS Act and local councils are requiring all businesses to take the steps necessary to protect their staff and visitors from electrical hazards.

To mitigate your risk we test and tag all corded electrical appliances (240 and 415 volt) to Australian Standard 3760 – 2010, (this is now a mandatory requirement under the WHS Act 2011), every 12 months for most environments and every 6 months for repair workshops and places of manufacture.

We inspect your business and advise you of any hazards that can be remedied with a quick and inexpensive fix. As a FREE additional service we check your first aid kit contents and make sure all items are included and up to date.

We inspect your fire extinguishers and fire blankets to ensure they are not expired and are being serviced on schedule, if they aren’t we can do this for you.

We look out for you, it’s our job and duty of care.

You can protect your livelihood and those who work for you by contacting us and we can help you eliminate or mitigate your risk.

LINKS/INFORMATION

Smoke Alarms what are the rules?

OUR SERVICES

FACT: Ionisation Smoke Alarms are very slow at detecting slow smouldering fires, but quick to detect flaming fires.

Flaming fires produce more small smoke particles and this type of fire will be more quickly detected by an Ionisation Smoke Alarm, when we say more quickly it is only a matter of seconds between the reaction time of a Photoelectric and an Ionisation Smoke Alarm. Unfortunately, most house fires begin as a smouldering fire with large smoke particles, so this type of fire will be more quickly detected by a Photoelectric Smoke Alarm.

A Photoelectric Smoke Alarm react up to 20 minutes earlier than an Ionisation Smoke Alarm and will warn occupants before the fire has become a fast flaming fire, most house fire fatalities occur because of smoke inhalation, not from the actual fire itself.

How a Photoelectric Smoke Alarm works

A photoelectric detector uses a special light source and a light sensor to measure smoke density. The light source is constantly on but the light beam is angled away from the light sensor. When smoke enters the chamber, the smoke particles scatter some of the light toward the sensor. As the smoke density increases, more light is scattered towards the sensor. When the amount of light scattered into the sensor reaches a predetermined threshold, the unit goes into alarm mode and the alarm will sound to alert occupants.

 How a Ionisation Smoke Alarm works

Ionisation Smoke Alarms are sub-micron particle detectors that use a small amount of radioactive material to detect hot, invisible particles from cooking or an open flame. They do not detect visible smoke, even though they may appear to in some cases. Most people have experienced a nuisance alarm given out by Ionisation type Smoke Alarms, this type of Smoke Alarm is sensitive to small smoke particles, it will respond more quickly to particles typically given off during cooking, even where there may be no danger, this explains why over half of all installed Ionisation Smoke Alarms have had their battery removed due to the nuisance factor.

The worst part about Ionisation Smoke Alarms is they are also considered low level nuclear waste and contain a small amount of radioactive material Americium 241.

What is the difference between Ionisation and Photoelectric?

Facts about Ionisation Smoke Alarms

FACT: Australian Government (CSIRO) test data since 1993 show ionisation alarms fail to activate in Australian Standards testing until more than three times the maximum safe limit set for photoelectric alarms.

FACT: Legislation to mandate photoelectric smoke alarms has been enacted in Australia’s Northern Territory and the U.S. states of Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont and numerous cities and municipalities.

FACT: The June 2006, official position of all Australian and New Zealand Fire Brigades states, “That all residential accommodation be fitted with photoelectric smoke alarms . . . Ionisation smoke alarms may not operate in time to alert occupants early enough to escape from smouldering fires.”

FACT: Standards Australia has revised the Australian Smoke Alarm Standard (AS3786-1993). Despite repeated attempts, the ABCB has refused to adopt it into the Building Code of Australia (BCA).

FACT: U.S. Federal court judges declared an ionisation smoke alarm to be "defectively designed" and its failure to be “a legal cause of deaths” (Sheila Hackert v First Alert Inc. March 2008).

FACT: Since the 1996 edition of the BCA, photoelectric detectors have been mandated in all Australian hospitals.
