For small businesses, adding a separate new management system can be a huge commitment. But, with the constantly evolving laws concerning workplace safety, they feel they have no other choice. The good news is that there is a solution and that's choosing an integrated safety management system.
ISO management systems have been designed to work well together. The experts who write these systems realised that for smaller organisations, implementation could be very time-consuming and expensive. So gradually, as the management systems are reviewed and updated, it's getting easier to integrate them.
Integrated Management Services
Some management systems integrate better than others; for example, workplace safety integrates well with environmental management and quality assurance. The best way to achieve all this is to work directly with integrated management services in Brisbane.
Who has the time to do it all themselves when you can call in experts who not only tailor-make your management plan but also help roll it out and train your employees? It's a win-win situation.
Workplace Safety is Changing
It's worth noting that the integrated safety management system is changing because workplace safety is changing. Businesses are being reminded to update to the new ISO 45001:2018 safety management system.
ISO 45001:2018 combines AS/NZS 4801:2001 (Australian Standard) and OHSAS 18001:2007 (International Standard).
|Safety Management System|
It's been shown that implementing an integrated safety management system helps reduce the number of work-related injuries, prevent accidents and improves productivity. Built into the system are the tools needed to comply with Legislation, Regulations and Codes of Practice.
Protect Yourself and your Employees
Remember, your turnover and your reputation depend on the health and safety of your employees. Organisations that deliver poor safety performance find that their costs rise excessively and they even face downtime. An integrated safety management system protects you and your employees by helping identify and control risks, and comply with health and safety legal requirements.
If you haven't yet made the change to an integrated safety management system, now's the time.
