101 Collins Street maintains a health and safety management system to provide the framework around which we work to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses. This system includes policies and procedures covering a range of key areas including:
- Induction program – all contractors are required to complete an internet based site specific health and safety induction prior to commencing work;
- Contractor Management – Contact companies proposing to conduct works within the building must provide evidence of health and safety procedures and appropriate insurance policies;
- External auditing – our health and safety management system is subjected to an annual audit by an external provider to ensure it remains up to date and effective.
101 Collins Street has an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) which is held within the 101 Security Control Room. The purpose of an AED is to shock the heart back into rhythm in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest. Approximately 30,000 Australians suffer from sudden cardiac arrest every year, and the prompt use of an AED has been shown to greatly increase patient survival rates. In addition to calling 000, all tenants should also contact the 101 Collins Street control room (via the red WIP phone available on each floor) in the event of a medical emergency.
