How do you assess and manage

OHS risk in the workplace?

Your Duty

You and your employees both share the duty to do all that is reasonably practicable to manage risks in the workplace. Risk management is a proactive process that helps you respond to change and facilitate continuous improvement in your business.

The Benefits

Managing risks improves worker health and safety, as well as productivity. Safety should not be seen as a cost, but as a way to add value to your business. Working to prevent workplace injuries means you reduce any costs associated with managing these after the fact. You will improve employee well-being, productivity and the quality of their work as well as fostering innovation among your employees.

Our Approach

Risk management is a proactive process that will allow your business to continually improve. You should have a planned, systematic approach that covers all reasonably foreseeable hazards and associated risks. There are 4 simple steps you should follow to ensure you are complying with OHS law. They are: 

  • Identify

  • Assess

  • Control

  • Review.

Do you have an OHS Management Plan?

Your Duty

As a business owner you have a duty to your employees, customers and other stakeholders to provide the highest level of protection against risks to their health and safety. With so many components to manage it can be challenging to ensure you are doing everything reasonably practicable. 

The Benefits

  • Provides a way to measure and verify your OHS system performance.

  • Demonstrates that your business is meeting its legal requirements.

  • Enhances your business's reputation, so that you are operating on a level above the pack.

Our Approach

We then create an action plan that includes monitoring and the check points needed to ensure you remain compliant.

  • Work out your plan

  • Put your plan into action

  • Review your performance

  • Improve your performance

The Benefits

The same principles apply to managing OHS. Well trained employees will identify hazards and manage risk more effectively, as well as performing all the other duties to keep your OHS plan in Action.
