Outsource Safety has over 20 years’ experience providing strategic commercial risk management services to a diverse range of industries.
Minimising occupational health and safety risks in the workplace and maximizing productivity.
Independent safety auditing can thoroughly and systematically:
Identify existing hazards
Identify potential hazards - before they have the chance to become dangerous
Assist in developing risk reduction plans that can be practically implemented
A Legal, Ethical and Financial Obligation
From a business perspective, safety auditing is a crucial business process. Identification of hazards and the resulting planning:
Reduces legal risk - you can avoid the costs and penalties associated with non-compliance, or worse, the issues resulting from the occurrence of an accident
Is ethical - as employers, there is a moral obligation to keep workers safe and healthy as far as is practicable
Maintains productivity - injured or ill workers are unable to be productive, and the downtime associated with accidents can be extremely costly
