The safety and welfare of employees is critical to all businesses and a legislative requirement throughout most of the world. Within Australia for example there are now criminal sanctions which can applied to individuals (company directors) for breaches of WHS (OHS) obligations. Strategic Risk Solutions recognise that the management of this key organisational risk is crucial not only from a legislative perspective but in the protection of your organisation’s key resource: your people. With the advent of national harmonisation laws in January 2012 your obligations for Workplace Health & Safety have never been more important.
Our WHS experts hold comprehensive qualifications, training and accreditations including WHS diplomas, occupational therapy, auditing certifications and other training qualifications. Accordingly we are well qualified to provide a range of WHS services to our clients including:

We can also facilitate certification of your existing systems.
Site safety Management Plans & Safe Work Method Statements: Strategic Risk Solutions can develop a site specific safety management plan for any projects where either the legislation or the principle contractor requires it. A certified safety auditor will come to the site, review the processes and develop a site plan that meets all of the requirements for that site.
