It All Starts With a Safety Review
- have limited safety processes.
- have some safety structure but want to take a step towards improvement.
- are established with reasonable safety systems, but want a 3rd party opinion of the practical application of their safety processes.
The review covers a number of points is assessing current performance and future activity for improvement. These include documentation, communication, risk management, work environment, culture and what is happening on the ground to provide a clear picture of current performance.
The purpose of the initial review is to provide a benchmark measurement of your OHS capabilities at a particular point in time. This will be used to create an action schedule, focusing on priority safety issues and to be referred to when measuring the businesses ongoing performance, highlighting the effectiveness of the initiatives introduced into the business. This is why the safety review and inspections are used as the first step in safety development.
Don’t be talked into expensive safety management systems or other safety packages until you have bench-marked your current performance and understand the gaps in your business processes. Once you have a handle on your requirements you can then start planning on correcting the high risk elements first, working though the list.
By this time you will have a much better understanding of the safety requirements of the business and what resources you really need to support your safety development into the future.
