Workplace Health and Safety

Organisations, workers, contractors and the self-employed each have responsibilities for ensuring their own health and safety, as well as others in the work including anyone who may be on the premises, or affected by work activities.  The Work Health and Safety Act 2011 outlines duties to provide a healthy and safe working environment. Failure to comply can result in fines for individuals and organisations and common law action.

The Act relies on the principle of doing everything that is reasonably practicable to ensure health and safety. This means that risk management is at the core of compliance to these requirements. Implementing strategies to manage key compliance areas aims to reduce the risk of non-compliance.

DWS supports your organisation to define and implement effective risk strategies in key compliance areas by:

  • Auditing current compliance levels;
  • Reviewing or creating documentation and systems;
  • Training management and staff; and / or
  • Providing advice and support for issues as they arise.

We can provide support in a variety of risk areas such as:

  • Consultation, Communication and Co-operation
  • Worker Management

The Christmas decorations have come down, the New Year celebrations are over and Australia Day is a distant memory, it’s time to take some relaxation time… Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but with March comes the deadline for your AUSTRAC report.

When we think about renovating a venue, most of us will think of renovating in terms of the physical environment – the look and feel of your venue. But have you ever thought of renovating your team?

Work Health & Safety Regulations are not overly clear and the lack of understanding means the majority of us choose to avoid WHS until we receive a warning from the Safety Officer to ‘do things better’ next time. What if there is no next time?
