not commence work on a site if they are alone and should never attempt removal or relocation of heavy machinery or fittings without a colleague to check safety precautions are correctly in place. Emergency services attend the site and John’s arm is freed from the cabinet. He is taken to RPA hospital where he requires major surgery. This is followed by 12 months of rehabilitation. Full use of John’s arm is never restored. Richard is the supervisor of the team that John belongs to. He needs to deal with the incident and take appropriate action to prevent a recurrence in the f uture. Richard’s team has received WHS training for their role as per the policies of the organisation; however, this incident proves that not everyone is always complying with WHS policy and procedures.
