OH&S and Accreditations

‘Compliance’ has become something of a keyword lately. And with good reason. If you are not
compliant with the standards, then you are likely doing something unsafe or unconstructive. These standards are there to protect employees and third-parties, not just consumers.

This is why we have made sure to stay abreast of all developments in the various fields we operate in, especially related to plumbing with the hazards of working on petroleum projects and dealing with blackwater from sewers. It’s a good thing to have regulation over these industries so all parties can work and in safety.

We feel we go the extra mile in terms of standards and accreditations. This is because we need to be on top of our game when it comes to all things relating to pipe relining. Our technicians have even gotten training in Maritime Security Identification Clearance, Helicopter Underwater Escape Training, Major Hazard Facilities, and Explosive Environments!

All personnel are also confined space entry trained. These are not frivolous accreditations – they are necessary for the purpose of doing our jobs well.

Check out some of our qualifications below. Or, give us a call on (03) 9331 6633 for further information on our OH&S and accreditations.

What is the difference between licencing and registration?

All of our plumbing technicians are licenced to operate. This means that they have got an official licensee so they can work professionally. This can be distinguished from a registered plumber, which is a step below licencing. Licencing also mandates that the plumber in question has got insurance to cover third-parties. This is why you will often see tradespeople/contractors say that they are licenced and insured’ in the same sentence, as the two go hand in hand. licenced plumbers often supervise registered plumbers.

What is the difference between qualification and licencing?

These two are tightly linked. Qualified means you have completed an apprenticeship or done the relevant exams. In other words, you are ‘qualified’. But it is not until you gain a licence from the Victoria Building Authority that you are ‘licenced’. So, you could be qualified to work but your licensee may be stripped for misconduct. The bottom line is that licencing trump’s qualification.

What is ‘accreditation’ Anyway?

OH&S and accreditations can easily get confusing. Accreditation is like an additional qualification in a specific area, very similar to certification. It shows you are competent in a niche area.

Who governs occupational health & safety in Victoria?

WorkSafe Victoria is responsible for enforcing OH&S and accreditations in Victoria and ensures that workers get compensated fairly for injuries. Of course, liability lies with the employer. The official legislation governing this area includes the Workplace Injury Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2013 and the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004.

What are the standards?

Standards are everywhere. Essentially, a group of experts agrees on the best possible way of doing things and then a standard is created around it. There are many international standards relating to multiple aspects of performance. International Standards are often designated as ISO – XXXX where X denotes a number. National Standards will follow the format AS/NZS 3500 or similar (this code governs the installation of certain fixtures in Australia and New Zealand).

What are ‘Plumbing Codes’?

Codes and standards are very tightly linked, except standards might be international and optional while codes are regional and mandatory. The Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA) is set out in the third volume of the National Construction Code (NCC). The NCC is produced and maintained by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB), which is a joint initiative of federal, state and local governments (the Council of Australian Government, or COAG). Pipe relining is obviously a subset of plumbing and is also governed by this code.

Regardless of the complexity of it all, the fact is that Mr Pipe Relining is licenced, insured, certified, qualified, accredited, and compliant with the relevant standards and plumbing codes. We go one step further with specialized qualifications and accreditations than the competition.
