Most of the retail safety projects we've been engaged to complete have been around loading docks and materials-handling equipment. We've worked a lot to help mitigate the risks associated with the goods receiving process.

Worksafe�s May 2009 Alert regarding an avoidable Victorian shopping centre pedestrian fatality has raised awareness of the need for hazard controls to be designed into existing dock areas where uncontrolled hazards exist. (These controls don't have to be complicated. We can usually design simple, cost-effective measures to mitigate a lot of the risks we see.)

Clients for whom we've managed the rollout of major retail OH&S initiatives and other projects include:


AMP Capital Shopping Centres

AMP had identified the urgent need to improve safety in and around its many shopping centre loading docks. A significant number of docks were actually being used by shoppers as a thoroughfare into the centre.

With the need for a strategic consulting partner to drive and manage the project; AMP engaged Push Safety to carry out detailed risk assessments of its docks, consult with the respective dock users and ultimately prepare site-specific Design Improvement Plans. Also to develop a Manual of (architectural) Hazard Control Standards and Safe Operating Procedures which would be applied to the Plans - to ensure a consistent and effective rollout of controls and procedures across all docks in Australia and New Zealand.

As part of a broader risk management initiative, Coles appointed Push Retail to develop a risk mitigation strategy to be rolled out. Specifically the brief was to address the risks associated with the receiving process; looking at pedestrian and vehicular movements in particular.

Risks we identified at each site were assessed and then, after an extensive consultative process, site-specific risk management plans were established. The plans would typically recommend simple design and process changes to help mitigate the identified risks. This enabled a systematic national rollout across 800 sites for which Push Retail was also responsible.

Target appointed Push Retail to carry out a full and thorough risk assessment of its goods-receiving and materials-handling equipment. Reviews were completed on a cross-section of stores so as to capture all of the different types, makes and models of equipment that existed across the network. This way; the controls that we ultimately recommended to help mitigate the identified risks could be applied and rolled-out nationally - quickly and cost-effectively.

As a Coles �preferred consultant�, Push Safety is recognised by its client as the specialist in the management of OH&S processes and controls around goods receiving and traffic management. We�ve helped Coles with numerous safety improvements over the years and probably helped prevent accidents and injuries. Or worse.
