What is a Safety Management Plan (SMP)?

The purpose of a Safety Management Plan is to establish and maintain an effective health and safety management system. This plan will assist in you meeting its obligations in accordance with work health and safety legislation.

In essence, a WHS management plan should outline the principal contractor's WHS policies, training, risk management process, subcontractors management, injury management and continuous monitoring and review.

The principal contractor must ensure that everyone working on the project is made aware of the WHS management plan's content and their right to inspect the plan, before they commence work on the project.

The principal contractor must also review the WHS management plan to ensure it is kept up to date and that all relevant people are informed of any amendments.

When is a Safety Management Plan (SMP) Required?

Where the cost of the construction work is $250,000 or more, a principal contractor for a construction project must prepare a written work health and safety management plan for the workplace. The work health and safety management plan must be prepared before work on the construction project starts. The measures for eliminating risks or minimising workplace hazards as far as is reasonably practicable should be included in the work health and safety management plan.
