Victorian OHS Essentials Program
RECOVERY PARTNERS: THE SAFETY EXPERTS
What is the Victorian OHS Essentials Program?
OHS Essentials Program is a WorkSafe Victoria government program that offers free independent advice to keep your employees safe. Choose an accredited Safety Provider to assess your workplace, identify hazards and provide a practical safety action plan, tailored to your business.
Recovery Partners are a accredited independent Safety Provider with highly qualified Safety Consultants.
Contact Chi Ly – our General Manager of Safety & VIC – to find out if you qualify for the program.
If you don’t qualify for the free program, Recovery Partners Safety Consultants can assist you to keep your employees safe by meeting your OHS requirements.
MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The program is confidential, independent and personalised. A Recovery Partners Consultant is an independent OHS consultant who is not employed by WorkSafe Victoria and their recommendations are completely confidential.
Our consultant will visit your workplace and make recommendations right for your business. The first on-site visit will last up to 3 hours. The Recovery Partners consultant will work with you to identify hazards and risks and provide a report with a plan, specifically for your business.
Given the ongoing number COVID-19 cases in the community and changing lockdown restrictions in Victoria, we have also developed a virtual approach to the OHS Essentials Program. Our consultants will assist your business with OHSMS Development, to ensure your workplace is set up with foundational OHS rules and compliant with Victorian law requirements. The free program also includes upskilling your employees to understand risks and controls associated with their role, including supervisor leadership.
