Employers are under on-going pressure to provide a safer working environment for employees, contractors, sub-contractors, visitors and members of the public.
There is also a growing onus on senior management to invest in Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) management systems to remove workplace risk, comply with OHS legislation and maximise the financial opportunities associated with workers’ compensation insurance.
Gallagher Bassett has a holistic philosophy to the reduction of claims related costs where the essential elements of prevention, compensation claims management and rehabilitation are integrated into an effective, comprehensive OHS management system.
To assist clients to take proactive steps in eliminating or reducing risk in the workplace, Gallagher Bassett’s OHS Advisory Team will guide you through the following elements required for a prevention program:
- the development of a positive safety culture based on awareness, training communication and accountability
- the integration of OHS into daily business practice and long-term strategy
- the encouragement of employee involvement and consultation in the planning for a safer work environment
- the development of an OHS management system that complies with legislative and best practice requirements
- improved operational and financial performance through reductions in occupational injury and claim costs.
The following flexible services tailored to suit individual client requirements are provided to assist in the development of an OHS management system.
Gallagher Bassett OHS Advisors will then conduct a worksite inspection to verify the assessment findings and assess the level of compliance with OHS legislation and good risk management practices.
Careful evaluation of the information gathered will identify areas of concern in the workplace and assist your organisation to prioritise and plan your approach to managing health and safety.
Our advisors work with client staff to ensure all hazards and risks in the workplace are identified, what the relevant contributing factors are and the specific controls that may be implemented to eliminate or the reduce risk.
The calendar is available through the Gallagher Bassett website at: www.gallagherbassett.com.au or by contacting our office for a hard copy (firstname.lastname@example.org)
These sessions are offered free of charge to Gallagher Bassett clients. Training can also be tailor made and conducted at client premises.
