Your employees are your best asset. Look after them.

Workplace injuries totalled 128,050 across Australia in 2011-12.  Employees spend a third of their day at work; it is important that as employees we make the workplace as safe as possible to reduce the chance of injuring our employees and to minimise the legal risks to our businesses.

OHS practices may always be at the back of your mind, but do you have sufficiently well planned and defined OHS systems that are; practical, understood and followed by your employees? Do they address all applicable legislation?

In reality for most businesses the answer to these questions is no!

This is where workers are often exposed to unnecessary risk and employers can be exposed to remorse and prosecution.

We at QIAS can help you. We have experienced consultants who can work with you to:

  • Identify the hazards within your workplace and assess the level of risk associated with each of those hazards.
  • Identify each part of health and safety legislation that applies to your workplace.
  • Establish and implement effective and user friendly OHS management systems aimed at ensuring the hazards have either been eliminated or the level of risks associated with hazards has been minimised AND ensuring that you have effectively addressed each part of the applicable health and safety legislation.
  • Provide the level of support necessary to ensure your OHS management systems remain current, relevant and most importantly, complied with.

    If your business is involved in construction we can help you with development of:

  • Safety management plans (SMP’s).
  • Safe work method statements (SWMS’s) for all your high risk construction work activities.
  • Systems necessary to achieve accreditation to the Australian Government Building and Construction WHS Accreditation Scheme.

If you want the added comfort and peace of mind that comes with having your OHS management systems independently confirmed as meeting the nationally and internationally recognised standards of AS/NZS 4801 and/or OHSAS 18001, we can guide you through that process in as painless an experience as is possible. 

We have a wealth of experience in successfully helping businesses to establish, implement and maintain OHS management systems and achieve certification to AS/NZS 4801 and OHSAS 18001.

In 2014 there were 184 workplace fatalities in Australia. Not only does this impact on the family and loved ones they leave behind, but it has a profound negative impact on the workplace and will limit your ability to function as an organisation.
