WHS (Work Health & Safety)

What does WHS mean for your organisation?

Work health and safety (WHS), or workplace health and safety, is a legal requirement concerning all organisations in Australia where people are employed to work.

Across every industry, WHS standards exist to provide a safe workplace free from the risk of hazards which can be biological, mechanical, chemical or even psychological. WHS systems are a means of protecting staff and the community from these hazards, which can cause wide-ranging effects from injury to low morale and lost productivity.

What we do

Our WHS consultants will review your policies and procedures against current legislation and international standards in a collaborative process that involves:

  • Auditing – identifying gaps in your WHS system and conducting site-based mandatory and voluntary WHS audits
  • Intelex – Provision of  Intelex WHS software solutions
  • Hazard and risk registers – pinpointing hazards and risks associated with either a project or the organisation as a whole
  • Risk assessment – determining the probability that risk will eventuate from a hazard
  • Writing policies and procedures – using your existing policies & procedures or starting from scratch to develop effective policies
  • Setting up WHS committees – a legal requirement if you have more than 15 staff
  • Certification – enabling certification to international standards such as AS/NZS 4801 or OHSAS 18001 (which must be recertified every 3 years)
  • Staff training – giving all levels of staff guidance and tools through in-house sessions and Intelex software training programs
  • WHS Management Systems – we develop, or support our clients to develop, WHS management systems including those based on the Intelex WHS software solution
