Other Hazards

I believe I have the necessary competency and that the control measures detailed are suitable in controlling the identified hazards.

I agree to implement all the control measures listed in this Risk Assessment, as well as complying with the following Lardner Park Safety Guidelines (see following page).  I understand that false answers to these questions could result in my site being closed.

SAFETY GUIDELINES

GAS SAFETY *
 YesN/A
I will ensure that gas safety protocols are met

The storage and handling of LP Gas, including the use of BBQs in marquees, need to comply with the new code of practice for the safe use of LP Gas at public events in Victoria.

Mobile Catering Vehicles – all mobile catering vehicles (inc.trailers) utilizing LP Gas need to have an Energy Safe Victoria Compliance plate to display ensuring the equipment meets the appropriate gas installation standard. For further information – www.esv.vic.gov.au (there is a quick link on the home page). BBQs and Appliances – All appliances (including BBQs) need to display an approval badge as being certified. Gas cylinders (including balloon gas) must be securely attached to a solid object to prevent the cylinders being knocked over.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY *
 YesN/A
I will ensure the Lardner Park electrical protocols are met

The static display area of Lardner Park consists of a network of electrical cables both underground and overhead, as well as water pipes and telephone cables. The underground cables are buried in excess of 300mm, except where they rise to connect with the power outlets. Pegs, poles and excavations are not to be placed within 1 metre of power outlets (rise poles). Overhead power lines will be marked on the site map in the Exhibitor Manual. PRIOR TO SETTING UP, please note underground electricity is marked with RED painted lines. If in doubt, check with our office. Please ensure that all electrical equipment is tested and tagged by a qualified electrician prior to display and/or demonstration. This needs to be completed within 3 months prior to the event. Tags should be dated and contain the electrician’s registration number. A qualified tester and tagger will be providing a tagging service on Wednesday 6th April next to the First Aid area, north of the Baw Baw Pavilion (times will be provided in the Exhibitor Manual). A fee per item will be charged for this service. Random checks will be undertaken prior to an event opening. IMPORTANT NOTES

Where an electrical cord or item of plant is to be plugged into a General Purpose Outlet (GPO),the connection needs to be made through a portable, self contained earth leakage device pluggeddirectly into the GPO.

All electrical leads shall be of heavy duty type and be fitted with three pin plugs of the transparenttype. Cords must not exceed their maximum length according to their amp rating. Eg. 10ampelectrical cords cannot exceed 32 metres & 20amp leads cannot exceed 40 metres. Doubleadaptors & 3-pin plug adaptors (pig-a-back) must not be used in applications where they must beexposed to moisture. Waterproof connection must be used in such circumstances.

Adhering to these conditions will ensure your electrical installation complies with the relevant Australian Standards & Codes of Practice. Please check overhead wires prior to installing high marquees and/or equipment and ensure that no marquee, flagpole or equipment is erected within 6.4 metres of overhead power lines. Where such items are erected within 6.4 metres of power lines, a "spotter" needs to be present to oversee the placement of items, and ensure they do not come into contact with powerlines as they are being positioned.

FOOD SAFETY

All exhibitors providing catering on site must return to the event organiser or the Baw Baw Shire Council two weeks prior to the event your ‘STREATRADER’ certificate. All exhibitors selling any sort of food products are required to comply with all statutory requirements pertaining to food sales and food handling practices. Your Food Safety Program must be up to date and displayed on your site. The Baw Baw Shire Council may have health safety officers on site during any event.
