Bushfire Recovery Local Businesses/Contractors

Calling all local businesses and contractors

Due to the recent bushfires, the NSW Government would like to hear from any local businesses in regions affected by bushfire,  that are able to provide goods and services to their community. The NSW Government is establishing a supplier list that covers all kinds of goods or services.

Registration will be easy with just a few simple questions on a portal. Everyone is welcome to apply.

The purpose of this portal is to connect buyers with regional suppliers and vice versa. It assists buyers to give first preference to an appropriate local supplier based in the same region. Any information gathered that is not commercial-in-confidence will be publicly available on the Procure Point website so everyone can access it.

Register now on: http://tenders.nsw.gov.au/?c=1B1FB6AE

Public Works Advisory:

Contractors wishing to register your interest in cleanup work contact or register with: constructionselection@finance.nsw.gov.au

CHANGES TO AUSTRALIAN BUILDING CODE THAT APPLY IN SINGLETON

Singleton Council is advising all builders, carpenters and designers to be mindful of new requirements under the Building Code of Australia 2019 that affect building applications in Singleton.

The new provisions, which apply to all residential buildings submitted for approval after 1 May 2019, include a range of requirements to mitigate the effects of condensation.

The new requirements have implications to the design and construction of residential buildings, as well as applications for construction and complying development certificates.

To prepare builders and designers, Council has prepared a document to outline the new requirements as well as the relevant parts of Volume 2 of BCA 2019 and extracts from Australian Standards (AS4200.1 and AS4200.2).

PLASTIC FREE JULY – DON’T BE A MUG

In Australia, over 1 billion coffee cups are disposed of each year that cannot be recycled due to the plastic lining that keeps them waterproof. If we lined up all the coffee cups used each year in Australia they would stretch round the world…twice! That’s a lot of coffee cups.

Carry your own reusable coffee mug and you could receive a discount from cafes for using it.

Is your business doing something to reduce single-use plastic items during Plastic Free July? Let us know on the Localised Noticeboard!

SINGLETON LEADS THE WAY IN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO STAFF SAFETY

An innovative program to get Singleton Council staff actively involved in safety in the workplace has been recognised as industry-leading at the Local Government Professionals Australia, NSW Conference Excellence Awards in Sydney last night.

Safety Survivor ran during #SafeWorkMonth in October last year, and encouraged all staff to channel their adventurous side to take a range of “safety challenges” in keeping with a Survivor theme.

Teams were awarded points with the two leading teams facing off in a Safety Survivor Grand Finale with challenges including identifying hazards and dressing up in proper PPE.

The concept was dreamed up by Council’s Integrated Risk Management team, with some help from other business units across the organisation and of course, Council’s very own “Wilson”.
