HarcourtsOne (H1) Health & Safety Hazard Features

To comply with Health & Safety laws, licensees and property managers are now required to make inspection attendees aware of any identified hazards on the property. We’ve created a tab when entering or editing a listing in HarcourtsOne to load hazards relating to a property. Hazards can be entered at the time of listing; or added, updated and deleted at any time.

 

  • Enter Internal (inside the dwelling) and External (outside the dwelling) hazards into HarcourtsOne.

Tips on How To Fill Out the Hazards Register

  1. Hazard: describe what the hazard is, and where it is located e.g. hole in floor of kitchen
  2. Risks: describe what risk the hazard poses e.g. falling and resulting significant injury
  3. Control: state what you’ve done to minimise the hazard e.g. placed board over hole with orange cone in front.

 

Examples of Hazards


Below are a few examples of possible hazards, the associated risks, and some suggestions as to what you can do to control these hazards. This is not a complete list of hazards, and salespeople/property managers must identify hazards in each property, the associated risks, and the control measures taken to eliminate or minimise the hazard. Salespeople/property managers or any worker hosting an inspection are to monitor each hazard and ensure that clients remain safe.
