The past year been particularly tough for business’ across Australia, and many just want to go back to some semblance of normality. One of the biggest challenges that companies face in working towards this goal is ensuring that their current work health and safety practices meet regulatory guidelines, whilst still providing staff with an accessible, supportive work environment. Developing effective COVID-Safe work practices across all worksites, while also ensuring that your company’s ability to deliver a superior customer service experience is not impacted, can be challenging for business’, who are obligated to ensure that they stay up-to-date with all changes to workplace legislation, whilst also working to ensure their operations is not detrimentally impacted by any changes.
To help business’ develop some effective strategies for getting on top of this, Anitech is hosting a free webinar on Wednesday, the third of March at 11am AEDT.The webinar is called How business’ can get the edge by implementing the ISO 45001 OH&S Standards, and it will be an informative, engaging hour-long session, in which business’ will gain clear insight and instruction into how the implementation, or migration, of the internationally recognised ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health and Safety Standards will help business’ develop an effective OH&S Management System. It will discuss how this will help them achieve their work health and safety goals, in a clear, structured manner.
It will be hosted by Anita Patturajan, director of Anitech, and feature two of Anitech’s Integrated Management Systems specialists, Julian and Fadi, as key speakers. They will all be offering practical insight into both the immediate and long-term benefits that business’ stand to gain by implementing the ISO 45001 Standards. Some of the key points to be discussed will be how these standards distinguish themselves from the older OH&S Standards, which are being phased out, and what additional benefits companies can receive by implementing them.
The session is scheduled to run for one hour, with the first fifty minutes of the webinar being an informative lecture from these key specialists, who will discuss their first-hand experience implementing these standards to business’, while the final ten minutes will be an informal Q&A session, in which attendees will have the opportunity to put forward any queries they have about how these standards apply to their own operations, and have their questions addressed by specialists experienced in helping business’ certify to these standards.
A Frequently Asked Questions section discusses common problems and their solutions.
This ten-minute Q&A session will give business’ the opportunity to ask any questions about their own business structure, and how the standards could be effectively implemented across them to ensure the operations reaps the maximum benefit from them. Attendees are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to pose their questions to two IMS specialists, who will be able to address the query from a specialist perspective, offer practical insight as an answer, and if needed, suggest an appropriate follow-on course of action.
Organisations often focus on their own business structure, and what distinguishes it from other business’ in their industry, or other companies of their size or type. This means companies want to know how the standards could be applied to their specific operations, to ensure it gets maximum benefit from them, while also gauging whether it is a worthwhile investment. Therefore, some of the common queries we expect to be asked, are regarding issues such as:
- My business is really small, with only a few employees working at a single site. These standards obviously work well with large organisations, but why should my operations get certified? What is in it for me? – Our specialists can explain how these standards are equally important to both large and small operations, and further, may be even more relevant to smaller operations, because of their unique operations which may be at risk from outside threats. They will be able to explain how certification to these standards will benefit business’ of all sizes.
- What steps need to be taken to migrate to the new standards? – They will be able to explain how it is a three-step migration process which, if successfully followed, allows for easy migration and certification to the new standards.
- My business has experienced a financial downturn because of the pandemic, can I afford to implement these standards across my organisation? – They will explain how the successful implementation of these standards provides business’ with a clear method of meeting their OH&S obligations, and its implementation can actually help the business reduce overall expenditure.
