Has one of your workers been injured?

Have you had a wake-up call and realised that maybe you're not managing safety  so well, you've just been lucky?

 

If someone has been injured at work, you want to be sure that it can't happen again.  Perhaps there are other situations where your workers could be injured niggling in the back of your mind.

 

SafeSense Workplace Safety can visit your workplace and carry out a site safety audit. We will identify potential safety issues and bring you the latest solutions and industry practices to help you manage your safety risks.

 

Just because you don't have a lot of injuries doesn't mean it won't happen. There are usually minor 'lead-up' events, near misses that can indicate there is the potential for things to go wrong. We will observe your work practices, identify high risk tasks and together develop safer work practices.

 

Call us now - our first visit won't cost you anything except for your time.

 

 


 

 

Worried about compliance?

SafeSense works closely with clients to develop a tailored safe solution to demonstrate compliance.  This involves documenting how you work safely and comply with the law and includes:

  • Consultation Systems and Records
  • Safe Work Method Statements for your high risk tasks
  • Tools and checklists to monitor safety standards and equipment
  • Training, induction and supervision

 

Every business is different and we look at what you’re already doing well and ‘piggy-back’ off that, so safety becomes part of everyday life – not an add-on.  You will benefit from our experience to make this a quick and easy process.

Rapid growth in your business?

When businesses experience periods of rapid growth, production increases, extra staff are employed - it's all hands on deck. Working in the business doesn't allow you time to work on the business. Human Resources and safety systems don't grow at the same time. But more people and more production means you're exposed to more risk.

 

SafeSense Workplace Safety can:

  • Be your on-site safety advisor and get your systems in place while you focus on running your business
  • Work with your resources to provide expert advise and assistance to get the foundations in place and get you on your way to implementing a safety system that suits the size of your business and your risks

 

It's more cost effective to use an experienced consultant than to employ a less experienced safety practitioner - just ask our clients!
