Nick Thompson is the contact for Lonsdale and in the event of an emergency evacuation will give the “all clear” when it has been deemed safe to return to the workshop.
Beverley personnel will be made aware of evacuation procedure upon visiting the workshop or commencing work. Please ensure you take note of safety signs. Andrew Warren is the contact for Beverley and in the event of an emergency evacuation will give the “all clear” when it has been deemed safe to return to the workshop.
Site personnel will attend a site specific induction where emergency evacuation procedures will be highlighted for the relevant site that they are working on . Please refer to your supervisor if you have any queries in regards to this.

RJE utilise their Integrated Management System (IMS) by comprising our company operating policies, procedure, environmental process, safe work practices and supporting documentation which form the basis and minimum criteria by which our construction activities shall be managed.
The Management of Robin Johnson Engineering Power is committed to the maintenance, preservation and enhancement of the Environment. We recognise our responsibility for the protection of the environment during all stages of our product and process life cycles including design, manufacture, use and disposal.
We shall manage the activities under our control to minimise adverse impact on the environment. To achieve this, we:
WHAT IS A BIOLOGICAL HAZARD?
Biological hazards should have their risk assessed by following the guidelines over the page
Risk Group – Low (Low community and low individual risk of disease)
Unlikely to cause disease in health of workers. Hazards that pose little or no risk are classed as “low”
Risk Group – Medium(Low community risk and moderate individual risk to disease)
Can cause human disease but under normal circumstances is unlikely to be a serious hazard to workers, the community, livestock of the environment. Exposures rarely cause infection leading to serious disease, effective treatment and preventive measures are available and the risk of spread is limited.
Risk Group – High(Low community risk and high individual risk to disease)
Causes serious human disease or can result in serious economic consequences but does not ordinarily spread by casual contact from one individual to another or that causes diseases treatable by antimicrobacterial or antiparasitic agents.
Risk Group – Extreme (Hazards with extremely high community and individual risk)
Usually produces very serious human disease often untreatable and may be readily transmitted from one individual to another or from animal to human or vice versa directly or indirectly by casual contact.
Whilst the exposure risk is low within RJE Head office, Lonsdale and Beverley, you may be faced with a different situation once on project sites. Please ensure you follow our client induction in regard to project specific hazards that may be identified. Some simple guidelines to follow whilst employed within RJE Offices are as follows:
Every incident (no matter how small) must be investigated to determine if the risk of exposure exists and what could be done to prevent the possibility of reoccurrence
Incident forms are available – refer to templates in the IMS
It is important to note that specific site policies need to be adhered to prior to entry into any substations or where there is High Voltage equipment.
Before entry into any ElectraNet or SA Power Network you are required to review the ElectraNet Asset Access Manual (ElectraNet Doc Ref P6070 or ETSA Doc Ref 27A).
The following “Golden Rules” are mandatory when working on or near any HV Assets:
Please refer to your Supervisor or Project Manager for any clarification or for a copy of the
above mentioned documents.
Manual Handling involves the use of the human body to lift, lower, fill, empty, or carry loads. The load can be animate (a person or animal) or inanimate (an object). Most manufacturing or distribution systems require some manual handling tasks. A variety of MMH techniques and tools exist to alleviate these potential problems.
Ergonomics is the science of fitting workplace conditions and job demands to the capabilities of the working population. Effective and successful "fits" assure high productivity, avoidance of illness and injury risks, and increased satisfaction among the workforce. Although the scope of ergonomics is much broader, the term here refers to assessing those work-related factors that may pose a risk of musculoskeletal disorders and recommendations to alleviate them.
Common examples of ergonomic risk factors are found in jobs requiring repetitive, forceful, or prolonged exertions of the hands; frequent or heavy lifting, pushing, pulling, or carrying of heavy objects; and prolonged awkward postures. Vibration and cold may add risk to these work conditions. Jobs or working conditions presenting multiple risk factors will have a higher probability of causing a musculoskeletal problem. The level of risk depends on the intensity, frequency, and duration of the exposure to these conditions. Environmental work conditions that affect risk include intensity, frequency and duration of activities.
Noise exposure is the commonest preventable cause of occupational hearing loss. Whilst occupational noise induced hearing loss is entirely preventable, once acquired it is irreversible. Nationally, an estimated 1 million employees in Australia may be potentially exposed to hazardous levels of noise at work (in the absence of hearing protection).
Workers exposed to excessive noise must use appropriate PPE including ear plugs, muffs, or both when engineering or administrative controls are not feasible to reduce exposure. Hearing protection is part of a hearing conservation program, which is required when noise exposure exceeds the action level [85 decibels on the A scale (dBA)].
Airborne contaminants are contaminates in the form of a fume, mist, gas, vapour or dust, and includes microorganisms. An airborne contaminant of this type is a potentially harmful substance that is either not naturally in the air or is present in an unnaturally high concentration and to which workers may be exposed in their working environment.
The management of Robin Johnson Engineering recognises that it has a responsibility to protect its employees, the environment and the community at large from the effects of any hazardous substances it may need to use in the operation of it’s business and so shall ensure that all hazardous substances used in the work environment are eliminated where possible, or the risk associated with their use is minimised. It is company policy that the least hazardous substance will be used wherever possible.
Fatigue related impairment is considered an identifiable workplace hazard. Like any hazard, the controls employed to manage the risks posed by fatigue are based on sound principles. The most effective means to manage the effects of fatigue is to have restorative sleep. RJE focus on work rosters as the primary means of establishing the working hours of employees.
The range of hazards associated with the thermal environment is widely acknowledged as a serious Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) issue. Exposure to extreme heat or cold can result in illness, injury and, in extreme cases, death. While high-risk situations will require specialist occupational hygiene advice, the generalist OHS professional should have an understanding of the impact of hot and cold environments, risk assessment methods and the regulatory framework as a basis for advising on, implementing, and monitoring controls.
The management of Robin Johnson Engineering is committed to minimising the risks to health and safety of its employees and subcontractors when undertaking work that may be remote or isolated.
Remote or isolated work refers to situations where people may be exposed to risks because the nature or location of their work means they would be unable to readily summon assistance in the event of injury, illness, violence or some other emergency at work.
The management of Robin Johnson Engineering understand that recycling and waste management of office and construction materials is an important industry in Australia. It is also an important environmental initiative because it reduces the demand for landfill space and demand on raw materials, reducing carbon footprint and environmental impact.
