Don’t Waste Money On High Priced Safety Audit Consultants
Many companies are finding it an increasing burden to comply with work health and safety requirements.
They are fully aware that not having a relevant, up to date health and safety system places workers at risk and can result in a massive burden of fines, convictions, and personal stress should an accident occur.
There’s a perception that managing health and safety is better left to “professional” safety consultants. After all, they DO have a better knowledge of the law, and of system’s requirements don’t they? So, it makes sense that outsourcing will better enable a business to comply.
However, there’s a big problem with outsourcing to safety audit consultants!
An outside safety consultant knows NOTHING about your business!
Health and safety law in most countries make the duty of care NON-transferable.
So if the safety consultant misses a vital function or process in a business operation, the liability still rests on the shoulders of the business owner!
Every business is different! Even operations within a specific industry, like farming, have a vastly differing day to day operation.
A health and safety system’s must fit the business’s uniqueness. External safety consultants are seldom familiar with that uniqueness.
Many business owners have found out the hard way that smart health and safety lawyers can easily spot an irrelevant system. These lawyers will exploit that to the full to get the maximum possible payout for their client. That client is more often than not a current or past employee.
