National Safety Services will customise a total Work Health and Safety Management System that will enable your organisation to improve their safety performance and compliance to health and safety legislation and standards. You will establish a safer working environment that protects people by minimising and better managing, health and safety hazards.
Site Safety Plans
A Work Health and Safety Management Plan demonstrates the integration of WHS requirements, according to clause 309 of the WHS Regulation 2011 or your states relevant legislation, with the project procedures, practices and safety management of the project. The size and complexity of a WHS Management Plan will be relative to the size and complexity of the project and particularly to the amount of high risk work being undertaken.
Machinery guarding, building and workplace assessments assist to form a component of your successful safety program delivering both long and short term benefits ensuring sustained results, continual improvement and to make safety awareness and compliance an inherent part of your organisations culture.
Our manual handling training courses can be designed to meet your specific requirements. We have a range of courses that we can offer employers and PCBUs either at your workplace or our training facility.
Fire and Emergency Response Plans
Emergencies are the one thing every workplace wants to avoid. Preparing for emergency situations greatly reduces the risk of injury, illness, and fatalities and may limit the damage done to infrastructure and surrounding areas. Well developed and rehearsed emergency preparations assist staff and internal emergency response personnel to respond quickly and effectively to an emergency.
Under Section 43 of the Work Health and Safety regulation 2011 A person conducting a business or undertaking must ensure that an emergency plan is prepared for the workplace. In addition to Emergency Plans we can assist in the development of evacuation diagrams.
Under section 3.5 of the WHS legislation, it is required that the provision of evacuation diagrams be displayed in all workplaces and facilities. These diagrams must be updated each time there is a change in the floor plan.
In addition, the diagrams are only valid for a five year period.
A consultant will visit your workplace to undertake a comprehensive evaluation and determine issues such as:
Assembly points Egress paths Firefighting equipment locations Diagram locations
Facilitation of risk assessments, risk workshops, task associated Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) is a service we offer to set out work activities in a logical sequence and identifies hazards and describes control measures especially for those involved in High Risk Work. This enables supervisors, workers and any other personnel at the workplace to understand the requirements of conducting high risk work in a safe and healthy manner. Risk Assessment includes a systematic analysis of each activity for hazards and potential incidents. Our team draws on their extensive construction, mining, industry and retail knowledge to develop tools to cater for your organisation’s needs.
OHS Policies and Procedures
Policies are a statement of purpose, which highlight broad guidelines on action to be taken to achieve that purpose. Procedures explain how to perform tasks and duties. Whether the changes are driven by new legislation or regulations and codes of practice your organisation needs to meet and maintain the minimum obligations to comply with Work Health and Safety. You may need policies and procedures developed or a review of your current policies and procedure to ensure that you are up to date and working in accordance with best workplace practices.
Auditing is a method of assessing the current level of compliance of an organisation with the mandatory standards in order to identify potential issues and recommend corrective actions where necessary. It is a pro-active approach to safety management through measurement, evaluation and management review. It also demonstrates that your organisation prioritises safe workplaces, plant and systems of work. Audits are conducted in accordance with the AS/NZS 4801 “Occupational Health and Safety Management System – specifications and guidance for use” by RABS QSA qualified auditors. This is the national standard for work health and safety management.
