Complying with OHS legislation is an important priority for organizations.
Stronger enforcement of OHS legislation and an increased community awareness at both an organizational and individual level means that employers must take active steps to improve workplace safety standards.
Understanding OHS legal obligations and implementing systems can be challenging due to the different regulatory systems in each State and the myriad of Codes of Practice and Australian Standards. We draw upon our local and international OHS experience to assist organizations to understand and meet their OHS legal obligations and to provide proven strategies and practical guidance to assist in developing safer workplaces. Our 24-hour OHS emergency advice line is part of our commitment to provide our clients with the highest level of legal service.
We have worked with organizations from a diverse range of industries for over 15 years. Our legal advisers appreciate that one size does not fit all. When addressing OHS legal risk, we consider the specific operational and cultural requirements of each organization. Our holistic approach gives depth and meaning to our advice and provides organizations with a clear understanding of their OHS legal risks and more importantly the practical steps they must take to address these risks. The five key components to our approach are:
- Ensuring compliance
- Incident response
- Legal protection
