A good example of how fundamental lawful obligations were not complied with is the lack of controls pursuant to s. 5, s. 6 and s. 7 of the Health and Safety at Work (General Risk and Workplace Management) Regulations 2016: Hierarchy of Controls.

  1. The Club is fundamentally lawfully required to have some controls and identify and establish practices for the removal of risks.

  2. The Club also had a lone worker on site.

  3. Lone Worker policy was established and the worker was brought in for engagement.

  4. The Club had no was of communicating with the worker if the worker was harmed, or with contractors if they were harmed.

  5. Cameras were brought in to establish the risks, enable two (2) way comunications with the workers and contractors, perserve scenes in case of incidents.

  6. WIFI was established on course to enable WIFI calling to eliminate reception issues.

  7. Online forms were made to enable all visitors to raise risks and incidents and preserve and promulgate incident data ensuring that the Club can prove it is addressing the legislative requirements.

  8. Cellphone was provided to enable the lone worker to interact with the new systems.

  9. A sign-in and sign-out register was established so records could be kept of site visitors.

  10. This needs to be maintained and updated regularly.

  11. Training for officers, workers, and contractors needs to be conducted to ensure the Club is engaging in its fundamenal lawful obligations.
