The Work Health and Safety legislation in both Queensland and New South Wales makes the body corporate/owners corporation, as the controller of the common property in strata schemes, responsible for ensuring that these areas are safe for both occupants of and visitors to the scheme.
A Leary & Partners Work Health and Safety audit identifies potential hazards in the common property, assigns them a risk rating and recommends remedial action. The report provides:
- a summary of the relevant sections of the work health and safety legislation,
- a clear written description of the hazard and recommended remedial action, and
- colour photos of the hazards.
