Don’t sweat on the stuff you DON’T need.
You CAN get the health and safety beast under control!
The first step is to define precisely what you need for your specific undertaking.
Keep in mind that health and safety is fundamentally about HAZARDS.
It’s about identifying, assessing the risk of and controlling – hazards.
No Hazard = No requirement for health & safety!
There’s so much health and safety legislation these days that it’s getting harder to KEEP it simple.
Workplace health and safety is now a significant part of the business management process.
So really, the only logical place to start planning or overhauling a system is to understand precisely what you need!
Don’t be overwhelmed by the task of preparing, implementing, monitoring and reviewing a health and safety system. Simple WorkSafe can help with that.
When you know exactly what you need, that’s a great start, and we can help you put the “nuts and bolts” of the system together.
Systemise your work health and safety
Health and safety management should have the same approach as accounts management.
It’s very rare to find a business today that doesn’t use accounting software. Most of your business is probably already managed with a software solution. Synchronising, linking and tracking all the many issues involved is almost mandatory
Yet we don’t use this same approach to health and safety management!
We tend to go back to filing cabinets, manila folders and pens and pencils for managing our health and safety system. That’s curious in the digital age, especially when a health and safety disaster could cost you heavily!.
You need to be able to find any piece of data instantly (from any device) and see all the resources that the issue is related to.
Simple WorkSafe, through our many tools, can provide this level of management to your workplace health and safety system.
Here’s how to complete a health and safety system evaluation using Simple WorkSafe.
