Well, as promised, we have totally re developed our WHS Management Plan for use by our owner builder students.
This is free to all of our owner builder course students and is a fully functional iPad based checklist proforma that produces full Management Plan in .pdf form that will satisfy the requirements where a project is legally obliged to have one.
So what projects require a WHS Management Plan?
As the Meerkat says: "simples"
Any construction project where the value of the labour and materials exceeds $250,000.00.
To access the template follow the instructions on the website at:
WHS Management Plan
For those of you who do not use iPads, we are in the process of producing a text based template you can download.
The benefit of the app is that owner builders are able to work through the checklist and where it is appropriate, take photos to include in the plan.
It really is a great application and not only walks you through the process, but provides prompts to help you identify hazards and associated risk on your specific project and the tasks that are being carried out.
We look forward to getting feedback on the application and we will be continuing to make improvements as we move forward with this exciting resource.
Over the next few months, our owner builder course students will benefit from the redesign of our resources, including new instructional videos and potentially podcasts with owner builder students who want to share their experience with the rest of the cohort.
In any case, pleas take a look at the WHS Management Plan application and
put it to good use.
The best way to iron out the bugs and make it really useful is for us to react to the comments and suggestions made by our owner builder students.
As always, happy owner building.
Thanks I have downloaded the WHS Management Plan template
Would love feedback
Have downloaded the iAuditor app which is a great find in itself- love checklists and this makes it sooo easy to use. Lots of good stuff in the public library too.
After some searching around I eventually found it using the iAudtor web site. I logged in and clicked on "Templates" on the left hand side. I then clicked on "Public Library" at the top of the page. From there I searched for "abacus" and it came up straight away. From there I clicked "Download Checklist" it is now linked to my account and appears on my iPhone app. Looks good. A similar approach would probably work within the app as well I would imagine, but this is how I managed to find it. Hope that helps others.
do you have any idea when the WHS management plan will be available for either android or windows ?
The WHS Management plan is a great idea. A checklist is always easy to get things done quickly and efficiently.
I love the idea of a downloadable checklist - as a new owner builder it helps me implement a process that's easy and effective. Any idea when it might be available for Android and Windows?
Great idea. Thanks for sharing this.
This looks pretty handy to have and easy enough to use. How often has this been updated?
Great, thanks for sharing.
Downloaded the App, looks great and will use for my build. Very easy to find just searched for 'abacus'. Only one there
