What are the benefits of outsourced safety management?

Safety management is an integral part of any sound business plan, but it can be complex and time-consuming. Business owners often can’t find the time to keep up with all the compliance tasks, reporting and auditing and can let important matters slip. Fortunately, there is a simple solution: outsourced safety management. 

Through outsourced safety management you can benefit from:

  • Removing the burden of safety compliance 
  • Preparing your business for unexpected workplace incidents
  • Saving your business time and money

Removing the burden of safety compliance

Hiring a professional safety management team to handle your safety compliance needs removes a huge burden from your shoulders. You’ll free up more time and headspace for running your business and you can rest assured that all your safety compliance needs are met. By choosing to outsource your safety management to experts with in-depth knowledge and experience of your industry you won’t just have your compliance needs met, you’ll also benefit from their expertise and receive tailored, valuable advice on how to improve your business.

Preparing your business for unexpected workplace incidents

While we may not be able to predict the future, we can prepare for it with smart safety management strategies. Unexpected workplace incidents can have potentially disastrous effects on your business. Injuries and illnesses caused by workplace hazards won’t just lead to stoppages and interruptions to your business they can also lead to expensive lawsuits and compensation payments. 

Outsourced OHS management can help your business prepare for and prevent workplace incidents by:

Identifying and eliminating workplace hazards

The most important aspect of any safety management process is risk assessment. During this process, your safety management consultant will conduct a thorough assessment and gap analysis of current risks and hazards to your business. They’ll review your current processes and policies and identify potential risks and non-compliance areas then advise you on how to improve them. 

Safety management is a process of ongoing improvement. Your safety management consultant will help you not only eliminate risks but find opportunities for future improvement. 

Training and preparing staff to respond to and prevent workplace risks

Your staff are the ones who will be most at risk from workplace hazards and it’s crucial that they are trained to prevent and respond to incidents in the correct way. Our safety management consultants can provide expert team training which educates your staff on your safety management system. They’ll also show your team how to use the documentation and application features of your safety management plan to maintain safety compliance.

Expert staff training minimises the risk of workplace incidents occurring and ensures team members know what to do in the event of an emergency or hazard.

With expert training, your team will be able to identify and respond to workplace incidents and risks in ways such as reporting a hazard, putting up signs to alert other team members until a hazard has been dealt with, or taking the initiative to proactively minimise workplace risks.

Reducing your company’s downtime and associated costs

Disruptions to your work processes can be costly. If a hazard needs to be dealt with or a staff member is taken out of action your workflows can be interrupted with potentially serious delays as a result. With an expert safety management framework and set of controls, these workplace disruptions can be kept to a minimum. This can include enacting a plan that ensures your business won’t grind to a halt following a workplace incident. 

Through a range of practices, your consultant can help you minimise the costs of stoppages at your workplace through things like workplace insurance, employee insurance, public liability insurance premiums, or an internal emergency fund.

Saving your business time and money

Every aspect of your business needs to be as efficient and cost-effective as possible, including your safety management. By outsourcing your safety management to professionals you’re getting expert safety management services without the cost of hiring an in-house specialist. Plus, thanks to services like audits, training and management systems your business can save money by minimising injuries, illnesses, downtime and legal costs and by improving the efficiency of your workforce.

Using professional OHS consultants, Brisbane businesses can create a safe and healthy workplace for their staff with a reduced risk of workplace incidents — and reduced costs.

Reducing the risk of fines, lawsuits and penalties

Legal actions can not only cost you money but cost you your reputation. 

All businesses must follow their State’s WHS legislation, with non-compliance leading to costly fines and increased risk of injury and illness to your employees. By investing in outsourced safety management can help your company avoid expensive legal action along with costly delays and prolonged staff downtime.

An effective safety management system ensures staff are empowered to identify and eliminate hazards, minimising the risk of workplace incidents.
