12 Dec iEDM Extend V8 Supercars Agreement

As the 2013 season concluded on the weekend with the Sydney NRMA Motoring and Services 500, iEDM are very excited to announce that we have extended our current Engineering Project Management agreement with V8 Supercars for an additional 3 years. The Agreement includes the Townsville 400, Gold Coast 600 and the Sydney 500 V8 Supercar Events, which iEDM have been delivering on behalf of V8 Supercars since 2009. iEDM Chairman John Howe says the agreement reflects the strong relationship between the two companies. “V8 Supercars are an extension of our iEDM family. On behalf of all of the Directors and staff at iEDM, we would like to thank V8 Supercars and in particular the Events team for their continued support of our organisation and our growth over the past 5 years.” Securing the EPM role with V8 Supercars for their major street circuits caps off an extremely successful year for iEDM. “Our reputation for delivery of overlay for major temporary events has led to many opportunities for our group.” Mr Howe says, “Our proven ability to deliver world class event infrastructure in complex public environments secured iEDM the contracts for the Engineering Project Managers role for the 2014 – 2016 Clipsal 500 Adelaide...

iEDM are very excited to announce that we have been appointed by V8 Supercar Events to provide site management and labour services for the 50th Anniversary Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. The 50th Anniversary of the Great Race will be one of the biggest Australian sporting events this year.

29 Mar QLD Workplace Health and Safety – Event Fact Sheet

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland have released a fact sheet on the new Harmonised WHS Legislation aimed at Event Organisers. The Fact Sheet can be found at this link: http://www.deir.qld.gov.au/workplace/resources/pdfs/whs-laws-public-events.pdf Whilst the fact sheet highlights the importance for Event Organisers to have all their WHS procedures in place, we think it probably falls a long way short of the type of information a lot of Organisers and Promoters are looking for. Events are complex businesses when looked at in light of the Harmonised WHS Legislation. We have volunteers, staff and construction activities in public environments and then to top it off, your venue is swamped by thousands of patrons. Most events, under the Act, will be viewed as construction sites and Organisers and Promoters are acting as the head construction company. That’s hard to fathom for a lot of Events and adjustments need to be made in the industry to meet the requirements of the Harmonised WHS Act. Would love to know what you think…...

23 Feb Harmonisation of Safety Legislation

In January 2012, the Federal Government introduced the harmonised Work Health and Safety Act (2011) across all states. Well, sort of… QLD has fully adopted the Act, NSW and SA is nearly there and Victoria and WA have 12 months to adopt the legislation. There is also a range of Codes of Practice which are still to be released. So really, it’s still a bit of a jumble of laws depending on where you do business. What do the laws mean to events? Well that depends on how you treated your event previously. iEDM SafeEVENT have conducted a review of the legislation with regards to its impact on events and can provide customised practical guidelines and applications. Briefly however, here are a few of the items you need to know: 1. Every business is known as a Person Conducting Business or Undertaking (PCBU). 2. The Directors and Senior Management of the PCBU hold a positive duty of care to ensure safety in the workplace and that correct compliance is achieved. This duty of care is to all of the company’s workers, contractors, sub-contractors and volunteers etc. 3. For most events, we would see the PCBU in control of the site / commissioning the works to be...
