Safety Consultants In Brisbane Recommend Prompt Action

An ISO safety management system is straightforward to implement and could boost productivity.

If the safety of your employees, customers and other stakeholders is an integral part of your business, doesn't it make sense to include it in an integrated management system ISO?

Of course it does, not only in terms of protecting people, but also protecting your reputation and reducing the down time caused by workplace accidents.

Safety consultants in Brisbane believe taking the time to implement the right procedures actually saves you time in the long run.

When businesses say they don't have the time or the budget to implement management systems, they are being very short-sighted. How do they think it will affect their schedule and their finances if an employee dies in an accident at work?

Protecting your staff 


You can't put a cost on a human life and besides, why would you, as protecting your staff is the right and responsible thing to do.
Far from hindering day to day business, providing a safe working environment is likely to increase production. Why? Because staff like to be treated like people. They are more than happy to put in the effort if they know it is noticed and appreciated.

Integrated management services professionals will be able to fully explain the advantages and benefits of an ISO safety management system. They can also provide training to implement the system, getting all staff members on board.

Facing fines


Providing a safe environment for all stakeholders in your business is your responsibility - and the consequences of not doing this can, at the very least, end with you facing huge fines.

Just recently, Essendon Football Club was fined $200,000 for failing to provide a working environment that was safe and without risks to health.

And Qantas is planning a $680,000 overhaul of its workplace safety procedures after a staff member was injured at Canberra Airport.

So, it doesn't matter who you are, if you do the wrong thing you will have to face the consequences.
