Hi Gitugitus,

What sort of project are you considering? Construction?

Also, do you have s OHS management system implemented in your company?

Written plenty of QEHS plans for projects.

ISO 10005:2006 is for Quality plans however can be translated in similar manner.

Google: "project HSE plan pfd"

Things often missing from Project Management Plans: Reference corporate procedures (not regurgitate), call up relevant standards, and specs. Also Objectives and Targets at Project level often left out. Risk table often left out. Common things: Policy, O&T, Structure, References, Risk Table (overview). Often written for client instead of actual audience. I believe it should be for project staff and contractors working on site.

Depending on jurisdiction and standards you are working to. For example in most states in Australia, the Act and Regs (Leg requirement) requires Principle Contractor to provide Site Specific Safety Management Plan to subcontractors for them to consider in development of their own 'tools'. Target audience for me was ... not the client.. the subcontractor... the intended user.

Mostly, these documenting processes require some research in identifying the relevant legal and other requirements, standards and codes. The whole research thing (on the net) is an important skill.

I tried to post links to local examples i could find but system says "remove links".

"seek and ye shall find".

Better to do that than just copy the same mistakes off some other mistaken work.

Very jurisdiction orientated. For example google "safety management plan au". You can see the requirement stems from Act and Regs, depending on client (if you are PC) the client may have their own expectations. If you are contractor working for PC, typically, here, you are entitled to have PC provide their plan for you to use as input into your own.

I tend to think of a Project Plan as an opportunity to cherry pick which parts of our larger system will apply on this project. For example, if I have 4 monitoring tools (site inspection systems) I may nominate the one(s) we intend to use on this project. Like going to dinner and selecting from a menu of options to eat.

Again, maintaining an extensive list of relevant legal and other requirements is valuable if you are going to be working with this type of thing. Developing the list requires research, and checking out "referenced" items in other documented requirements/specs/standards/acts/codes/guides etc.

Hope this helps

One of my local instruments (WHS Reg 2011) states:

309 WHS management plan—preparation
(1) The principal contractor for a construction project must prepare a
written WHS management plan for the workplace before work on the
project commences.
Maximum penalty:
(a) in the case of an individual—$6,000, or
(b) in the case of a body corporate—$30,000.
(2) A WHS management plan must include the following:
(a) the names, positions and health and safety responsibilities of all
persons at the workplace whose positions or roles involve
specific health and safety responsibilities in connection with the
project,
(b) the arrangements in place, between any persons conducting a
business or undertaking at the workplace where the construction
project is being undertaken, for consultation, co operation and the
co-ordination of activities in relation to compliance with their
duties under the Act and this Regulation,
(c) the arrangements in place for managing any work health and
safety incidents that occur,
(d) any site-specific health and safety rules, and the arrangements for
ensuring that all persons at the workplace are informed of these
rules,
(e) the arrangements for the collection and any assessment,
monitoring and review of safe work method statements at the
workplace.
310 WHS management plan—duty to inform
The principal contractor for a construction project must ensure, so far as
is reasonably practicable, that each person who is to carry out work, made aware of:
(a) the content of the WHS management plan for the workplace, and
(b) the person’s right to inspect the WHS management plan under
clause 313.
Maximum penalty:
(a) in the case of an individual—$3,600, or
(b) in the case of a body corporate—$18,000.
311 WHS management plan—review
(1) The principal contractor for a construction project must review and as
necessary revise the WHS management plan to ensure that it remains up
to date.
Maximum penalty:
(a) in the case of an individual—$3,600, or
(b) in the case of a body corporate—$18,000.
(2) The principal contractor for a construction project must ensure, so far as
is reasonably practicable, that each person carrying out construction
work in connection with the project is made aware of any revision to the
WHS management plan.
Maximum penalty:
(a) in the case of an individual—$3,600, or
(b) in the case of a body corporate—$18,000.
Then is goes into SWMS's. The legislation is the base, then a Code of Practice is more detailed, and then there are standards and guides that are more detailed.

Google NSW WHS regulations 2011 to see that example.
