Safety Audit, Gap Analysis & Monitoring
It is important to establish the readiness of your business to manage hazards.
At Safety Management Solutions we are highly experienced in undertaking auditing, gap analysis and monitoring, that can identify opportunities to improve and streamline process, reduce administrative burden, reduce risk as well as increase safety and profitability. Our team have experience of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and the Safety Standards ISO45001, OHSAS 18001 and AS4801 in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, health, government, construction, utilities, energy and power generation, gas and oil, transport and white collar environments.
ISO 45001: Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems is currently in draft release and is anticipated to be finalised in late 2016. As a company, we closely monitor this standard and are experienced in transitioning companies to new and revised WHS standards. We can help with gap analysis or implementation work required to meet the new global standard.
Legal compliance reviews and due diligence
Our compliance audits focus on the way your organisation identifies and complies with legislation relating to its operation. We determine whether your systems and processes are legally compliant and are actually achieving what you need them to achieve. We will also help you ensure they stay that way. We see lots of systems that have the words but do not have the processes or outcomes.
Remember at the end of the day it is about risk management and keeping your people safe, your business profitable and improving the status quo.
Scheme or Self-Insurance auditing
Take control of your insurance audits with quality services delivered by Safety Management Solutions. We are experienced across all schemes including the NSW Retro-paid loss premium scheme, the National Self-Insurer and others such as SafetyMAP, the Self insurer case management self audit, and the South Australian Performance Standards for Self-Insurers. We can also assist in preparing for entry into schemes such as the NSW Retro-paid loss premium scheme.
Property Risk Auditing (PRA)
Safe, effective, and compliant property management requires a comprehensive safety and risk program. We’re experienced in undertaking full property risk audits as part of your due diligence; purchase, acquisition or monitoring program. Routine elements that we consider include plant safety and compliance, cooling tower management, asbestos management, and public liability.
Supply chain, contractor prequalification and site auditing
Engaging suppliers or contractors that don’t have or implement adequate management systems, is a risk to your workers, clients, business operations and reputation. Breaches of safety or environmental laws by them, can result in a breach of the law. In fact, the ongoing monitoring of suppliers and contractors is critical in the areas from safety and environment, to social equity and quality.
Hazard specific audits
Hazardous work activities require greater attention and focus, with identifying and controlling the risks involved. Company Officers are required to be aware of hazards that include confined spaces, hazardous plant, rotating plant, noise and falls, to asbestos and electricity.
Our audits and gap analysis’s identify whether you have hazardous work activities in your operations and assess their management and provide a detailed report of them.
Development of auditing protocols
Remove the risk involved in using downloaded generic audit tools by allowing Safety Management Solutions to develop audit tools and protocols that are specific to your business risk. Our long-term solutions are designed around your business, to be in tune with its needs.
