Plant Pre-purchase Documentation
The University is required to establish systems to effectively manage plant under its control to minimise the risk to health and safety of staff, students, contractors, and other people at or near University workplaces, as far as is reasonably practicable.
The School is implementing the requirement for items of Plant to have a Pre-Purchase Risk Assessment Checklist completed when submitting a purchase order.
In addition, the Department is responsible for maintaining records for all plant (including relevant tests, commissioning, inspection, and maintenance).
Attached is a Plant Pre-Purchase Risk Assessment and Checklist Form to be filled out. The form is supplied in rtf format for the option of easier form processing:
