OHS Purchasing

Schools can now visit the Policy and Advisory Library (PAL) for this information. This page will remain in this location but will be for corporate staff only. School staff should use PAL for all policy, procedures and other operational information.

To ensure that “new” risks are not brought into the workplace, Principals and Managers must make certain that any new equipment, plant, chemicals or products are safe at the point of purchase.  Any risks associated with new equipment, plant, chemicals or products must be understood and controlled before they are introduced into the workplace. This section will provide you with procedures and forms to assist in managing OHS risks associated with the purchase of goods.
