Safety Consultant Service

Health and safety management

All organisations must comply with prescribed  health and safety requirements and apply reasonably practicable risk management to things of potential harm in the workplace. It’s generally the role of the person tasked with coordinating health and safety for the organisation to identify applicable prescribed health and safety requirements, and to guide what constitutes reasonably practicable risk controls when actions aren’t prescribed by regulation. To achieve this, it’s vital that both suitable expertise, and adequate time is dedicated to performing the job.

For some organisations, particularly those in mining and construction, the major hazard environment means that health and safety demands attention and receives considerable investment. For other organisations health and safety requirements often sit quietly in the background, afforded minimal time and expertise,  unfortunately only receiving the necessary attention when it is too late ie. when an incident occurs or a Regulator makes enquiries (this is an expensive way to manage safety!).

Management Obligations

All organisations need to ensure they coordinate the management of health and safety, an obligation that rests clearly upon the employer ie. the person in control of the business or undertaking. This means ensuring both suitable expertise, and adequate time is dedicated to managing health and safety. This may be achieved by internally resourced positions, by engaging consultants to take on the task, or by a mix of both ie. engaging consultant support where needed to assist the internal people tasked with performing the job.
