This two page Purchasing Policy outlines the rules, responsibilities and procedures to consider when purchasing new items such as plant and equipment, hazardous substances, materials and workmanship.
Having clearly defined guidelines for purchases means you and your workers know how to assess the risks that a purchase may create or prevent in the workplace. It provides a standard that can be measured and a means to hold suppliers accountable.
By assessing the consequences of each item before it is purchased you may reduce costly corrective measures needed to be implemented after incidents or injuries occur. By asking some specific questions prior to making a purchase, the consequences can be weighed, and the solution that eliminates or minimises the risks to employees and provides the best outcome purchased.
The Purchasing Policy is included in our WHS Management System or can be purchased individually and used as a stand alone document.
