On-Course Safety Notice
The Occupational Health, Safety and Welfare Act requires an employer to maintain a safe working environment. The Werribee Park Golf Club has adopted the following safe work practices to protect injury to staff from golf balls.
When the flag has been removed from the hole, the green is out of play and golfers are not to hit to the green until the flag has been replaced and course staff are clear of the green.
FAIRWAYS and ROUGH MAINTENANCE
Golfers must wait for an approaching vehicle or mower to pass behind or out of range before playing their shots. Alternatively the machine operator may call golfers to play their shots.
In all other situations, before playing a shot, golfers must receive an acknowledgement from ground staff who may be in range.
Failure of a golfer to comply with the above procedures may result in prosecution under the Occupational Health, Safety and Welfare Act.
