To ensure you comply with legislation it is advisable to review and revise how you manage any critical risks - those that could cause illness or injury serious enough to keep someone off work.
The law says you need to take reasonably practical steps to manage these risks. How you do this will depend on:
- how seriously someone could get hurt
- the chance of an accident happening
- and how much control you have over preventing it.
While legislation can stipulate the framework, its successful implementation depends on multiple factors, such as leadership, organisational culture, worker engagement etc.
Thus, we encourage and guide our clients beyond compliance to robust systems that deliver best health and safety outcomes.
