Good WHSMS are the foundation of WHS strategy

Good Work Health and Safety Management Systems – WHSMS – ensure the health and safety of the workplace and workers are maintained. By adopting a strong Safety Management System you can be confident of the right level of attention being placed on safety awareness, knowledge, and compliance. We will help you to embed the desired workplace safety cultures and promote commitments to continuous improvements for the benefit of ISO45001 alignment.

What are the costs of not having a Safety Management System? Find out here.

The three main reasons you need a WHSMS

A WHSMS sets out processes for the business to follow, for the business to define expectations in trainings and to start measuring your safety compliance. You wouldn’t not measure your sales performance surely? You wouldn’t stop measuring your production KPI’s surely? So why wouldn’t you put simple processes in place to KNOW where you stand legally in relation to safety law? You can’t go to jail if sales or productivity aren’t where they need to be!!

  1. Improved health and safety performance
    – Make your business safer
    – Be seen as an employer of choice
    – Lower your legal exposure
  2. Reduce costs associated with accidents and incidents
    – Identify sources of injury BEFORE they happen
    – Reduce lost time and absenteeism
    – Lower your workers’ compensation premiums

  3. Improved business outcomes
    – Improve morale by showing employees the business is looking out for them
    – Be seen and corporately and socially responsible
    – Improve employee retention
