WHS for SMEs
Modern business is complex and fast paced. Most roles require some level of multi-skilling. In Small to medium enterprises (SMEs) many of the same obligations apply but with less people to resource them. Staff may ‘wear many hats’, dabbling in disciplines that large organisations employ specialists. Furthermore, with small financial resources available, SMEs are less able to hire in external expertise.
Health & Safety is one of these specialist obligations that SMEs must face. For most, health & safety is an issue that floats up and down the priority list as issues arise and are dealt with. It can suddenly become a priority if something goes wrong, someone is hurt or worse. Work related injury or illness can have terrible impacts on workers and their families. In large businesses they are costly and disruptive. In SMEs they can be financially and operationally devastating, bringing the business to its knees and potentially resulting in closure.
Work Health and Safety Compliance Check
OSHEM Solutions recognise that SMEs are both time poor and financial stretched. We also recognise that the Jan 2012 introduction of new Work Health & Safety (WHS) laws introduced a large and complex legal burden on NSW SMEs. That is why we developed our WHS Compliance Check.
The WHS Compliance Check is a quick and efficient way of determining if your organisation is meeting the key obligations of the law and managing the type of risks that could hurt your workers.
