Business’ have developed some innovative ways to conduct their operations and reach out to customers over the past year, due to changes in their work environments. Reduced contact points, online meetings, and heavily altered office environments are just some of the ways organisations have managed to continue to deliver an effective service to customers, in a significantly altered environment. However, any change, no matter how small, to the work environment, can potentially result in staff being exposed to new occupational health and safety risks. So, to demonstrate their commitment to meeting regulatory compliance and providing staff with a safe, hazard-free, work environment, business’ should periodically review their work health and safety practices, to ensure that they are meeting their obligations.
To help business’ better understand some useful strategies available to them to help them develop a thorough, effective occupational health and safety management system, Anitech is hosting a webinar on this topic, on the 3rd of March at 11am AEDT. By attending our webinar on How business’ can get the edge by implementing the ISO 45001 OH&S Standards, organisations will benefit from the knowledge and experience of Anitech’s OH&S specialists, who will provide practical insight into the following areas:
- The advantages and key changes that the new internationally recognised OH&S Standards have over the previous ones. This includes how it adopts a pre-emptive approach to OH&S Management, by identifying potential threats before they can impact operations, and then working to mitigate their risk.
- How its holistic approach can provide many benefits to companies. For example, it includes clauses that allow business’ to develop strategies to promote both the physical and mental wellbeing of employees. It provides benefits to business’ through its recognition of the wide scope of potential OH&S issues, and how there are many potential threats that fall outside the category of immediate physical risks. By providing clauses that account for less obvious OH&S risks, including employee mental health, business’ are able to develop more inclusive OH&S practices, which recognise the needs of individual employees.
- How its broader scope works at preventing Work Health and Safety issues from occurring in the first place. The Standards work at ensuring business’ thoroughly audit their existing systems for potential OH&S risks, and then take proactive steps to ensure that the threats are eliminated. By adopting this preventative approach, business’ are working to ensure that there is minimal risk of workplace injury, and that in the event of one, there are clear, straight-forward processes in place to minimise its impact.
- Digital transformation of your health and safety practices and recommended practices in utilisation of software. This includes a discussion of how the standards help your business to develop COVID-Safe strategies across your entire workplace, and utilise digital platforms to conduct many work duties, thus ensuring that your workplace adheres to COVID-Safe measures, including upholding social distancing requirements, and the development of a COVID-Safe work environment.
Our specialists will offer practical insight into strategies for keeping your business safe
The webinar will be hosted by two Occupational Health and Safety and IMS specialists, Julian and Fadi, and Anita Patturajan, director of Anitech. They will be drawing upon their years of experience into helping business’ implement and maintain Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems across their organisation, and will be able to answer any questions you may have about how these standards can personally benefit your organisation. Business’ create and uphold a strong reputation through repeatedly demonstrating to the public their commitment to safety, that they have clear processes and procedures in place for what to do in the event of an incident, and that they have taken proactive precautions to ensure that in the event of anything going wrong, there are clear procedures and processes in place to work towards immediately mitigating the risks, and ensuring that the business stays as safe as possible.
By attending this webinar, your business will gain a clear and thorough understanding of the scope of potential OH&S risks that they are facing, and also be provided with some clear direction about the steps they could take to identify them, record them, eliminate them, and implement safeguarding measures to ensure that the issue does not reoccur.
