Safety updates for Host Employers


The SMARTKit is an interactive tool for all small to medium sized enterprises/businesses (SMEs) to develop a basic framework for managing workplace safety effectively.

For businesses that are required to provide information to principal contractors before commencing work, SMARTKit provides you with one simple tool capable of producing all of the required Work Health Safety (WHS) documentation for you.

Here is a video that explains the SMART KIT in more detail.

Incident Reporting

Persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBUs) must notify their WHS regulator when serious injuries, illnesses and dangerous incidents happen at work. These are called ‘notifiable incidents’.

It is also the law to report notifiable incidents. 

Notifiable incidents
A ‘notifiable incident’ is:
·         the death of a person
·         a ‘serious injury or illness’, or
·         a ‘dangerous incident’ that exposes someone to a serious risk, even if no one is injured.

‘Notifiable incidents’ may relate to any person— an employee, contractor or member of the public.

When there’s an incident

If a notifiable incident occurs, you must:
·         preserve the incident site until an inspector arrives or directs otherwise.
·         report it to the regulator immediately, This doesn’t prevent you helping an injured person or make the site safe.

Call 000 if there is an immediate risk to life

  • is carried out in an area at a workplace in which there is any movement of powered mobile plant
  • is carried out in or near a confined space
  • is carried out on or near energised electrical installations or services

identify risks and to take action to avoid injuries.

WHS resources for small business

There are 163,900 small business in SA, employing nearly 25% of working South Australians. Workplace health and wellbeing in a small business has a focus of owners needing to look after their own health, just as importantly for employees.

Healthy workplaces tools and resources for small business are available at

Industrial Manslaughter laws in SA

Business owners fined after injury

The owners of a Port Augusta business have been fined $200k after an injury to a young worker.

It followed a SafeWork SA investigation that found the business and the two owners had breached their work health and safety duty and failed to provide a safe work environment for their workers.

In September 2020, a 16-year-old apprentice was crushed at work by heavy sheets of steel that fell suddenly from a failed storage rack.

Hot weather safety

Employers have a responsibility to manage risks associated with heat stress and UV radiation at work. 

The Work Health and Safety laws do not specify a ‘stop work’ temperature. A single ‘stop work’ temperature would not capture the range of factors which make working in heat hazardous, including humidity, air flow, the physical intensity and duration of the work, and whether workers are physically fit and acclimatised to the conditions.

The CEG SmartKit has has free resources to help Host Employers with managing this risk.

Working at heights | Safety Alert

SafeWork SA have recently highlighted the risks of working at heights.

Working at height is a high risk construction activity. The hazards, risks and controls shall be documented in a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) where the work involves a risk of a person falling more than 3 metres in South Australia. CEG can provide Host employers with a SWMS template and procedure as part of the SmartKit resource.


Apprenticeship mental health report

There are almost 200,000 apprentices working in Australia. Almost half of young people who commence an apprenticeship will not finish it. One of the reasons for this is the impact of apprenticeships on a young person’s mental health.

This report Wellbeing at work looks at how the mental health and wellbeing of apprentices can best be supported.
