Since the change in health and safety legislation was passed last year, we have felt a big shift in what we need to do to comply with these standards.
Although the requirements are not a new concept, it has now become mandatory to supply health and safety documentation for many of the building firms and large industrial companies.
Why should I worry about trying to align with current standards?
As an owner of a business, you are responsible for the health and safety of yourself, and your staff. Under the current HSWA (Health and safety at Work Act), the owner of the business/the business entity, or otherwise referred to as the PCBU (Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking), has a primary duty of care to ensure their staff are adequately cared for. If it is found that the PCBU has not provided a safe working environment, and harm comes to the employee, there are now serious consequences to face. In the most extreme case the PCBU could find themselves facing incarceration.
For most people, health and safety isn’t something they have time for, or, it makes no sense at all.
I know how to utilise your existing systems to provide adequate paper work to meet current standards. I have had experience with many various health and safety systems i.e. HazardoCo, Site Safe, NRG and customer specific documents, which has equipped me with the tools to help you with your business.
Let me remove this stress and help make your jobbing process quick, easy and more streamlined.
What services can I provide?
If you don’t already have a health and safety policy, I can help you find a suitable option. As previously mentioned, I have worked with various other health and safety systems and will apply this knowledge to offer recommendations of which system would suit your business.
