    The $21m Mt Gambier Prison  project involves the construction of 4850 m2 of new build including 3 new Accommodation Buildings, a New support building including officers station, a new reception building adjacent to the main gates, expansion of the Industries  building and associated civil and services infrastructure upgrade works.  Currently, the new Accommodation and Industrial buildings are nearly completed; registration building works and civil works are progressing. Mossop Construction + Interiors are in the final stages of the works which is due for completion at the end of June 2015.

    In early 2013 DCS recognised the need for further low security beds, (independent living accommodation), at Mt Gambier Prison to house prisoners nearing release and to assist with their transition back into the community.

    This projects uniqueness comes from the fact that the new building are built in a  secure premises and throughout the building works  Mossop Construction + Interiors have the duty of care and due diligence obligations under WHS Regulations and Mossop Construction + Interiors’ self-imposed high standards of safety.

    Coupled up with the fact that the building project is a remote build, some 430kms from Adelaide and the project team’s preference for local trade involvement, the role of the Safety Supervisor was far more than managing activities on site, rather the careful planning prior to trades attending site and managing the security requirements.

    Mossop Construction + Interiors (Mossop) achieve best practice WHS on our projects going over and above legal compliance and achieving above industry LTIFR & MTIFR rates and avoiding injuries and incidents by planning works well in advance and obtaining Safety Procedures for all works before they commence. All contractors are expected to submit SWMS which are reviewed before commencing works. Mossop are also accredited to the Australian Government Construction Industry Safety Accreditation Scheme (OFSC) and work to this standard on all projects.

    Mossop HSE systems are comprehensive and include regular inspections and audits on site to ensure compliance with safe work methods. All incident or Injuries, including near miss incidents, are reported and investigated as required to assist Mossop growth.  Mt Gambier Prison project has only had 1 LTI and 2 MTIs over the last 12 Months and 55000 hours of work. Mossop have never been convicted of a safety breach in their history of operations. The project received NO Prohibition or Improvement Notices from any Authorities.

Daily pre-start, weekly Responsible person meetings, Weekly task audits and Monthly site audits are conducted throughout the project to check and improve compliance to Mossop Health Safety & Environmental Management Systems (HSEMS).

    The Safety Supervisor (David Hunt) and Site Managers (Nick Waasdorp and Gordon Sandison are jointly responsible for the site safety, security, induction and management of WHS requirements for all contractors on site. All WHS requirements of the Mossop HSEMS are made clear prior to coming to site, at Induction and regularly throughout the project with the use of emails, inspections and audits of contractors. Daily Pre-start meetings are held by trades and permits issued prior to commencing high risk works.
    Mossop consult regularly with contractors via our weekly Responsible Person Meetings in which a representative from each trade group discusses with other trades and Mossop staff the safety issues for the coming week and decide on actions required to best manage the risks for the week ahead.
