Health and Safety

The Health at Work Act prescribes a primary responsibility on Employers to take all practicable steps to ensure the safety of Employees while at work by providing and maintaining a safe and working environment for those Employees. The legislation is preventative in outlook which means that harm does not need to occur in order for liability under the Act to accrue. Owners and managers are personally accountable.
Through Employers Assistance you have available a very experienced OSH team. You can involve us to whatever extent you want with getting systems in place. Hazard identification, hazard management plans, training staff in what they need to know and do, training your safety officer and on-going support OR we can provide you with the tools to do it all yourself.
The variety of options regarding installing and implementing the systems of OSH make them affordable and they can be completed at the convenience of the business, thus saving money and time.
Let us give you an audit (a costs only fee) then send you a proposal on what your business needs for your consideration. At worst you will then know the exposure and risks your business faces.
