Benefits of a Chain of Responsibility Management System
Chain of responsibility compliance is critical for any business who has a role in the supply chain. Legislation changes in 2018 have tightened regulations in the industry, putting more responsibility in the hands of management to ensure compliance with these laws.
There are plenty of benefits to implementing a chain of responsibility management system – see a few examples below:
- Can be incorporated easily into an existing Work Health & Safety (WHS) management system;
- Helps demonstrate WHS compliance with regulatory requirements;
- Provides systems for ensuring any changes or updates to current processes are considered and any corresponding risks/opportunities are assessed prior to implementation;
- Protects the health, safety and welfare of workers;
- Provides managers with a means of supporting their workers;
- Demonstrates an organisation has the ability to engage with their customers and suppliers on their specific requirements to ensure on-going compliance;
- Provides the mechanisms for determining continuing suitability of the management system (internal audits, reviews and evaluations and analysis processes).
Chain of Responsibility is an actionable way to prove your businesses dedicated to the safety of your employees, and the general public. Any business who plays a part in the supply chain needs to ensure they are CoR compliant to avoid fines and possible legal action.
