Title: Is Your Business Falling Victim to These Avoidable Health and Safety Mistakes?


1
Is Your Business Falling Victim to These
Avoidable Health and Safety Mistakes?
2
Workplace health and safety risks
  • Safety hazards are every businesss concern, be
    it a small retail store or a large corporation.
  • Workplace health and safety risks, if ignored or
    not properly assessed can impact an organisation
    and its leadership team in many different and
    quite significant ways that go much broader than
    any direct impacts on the person that might be
    unfortunately injured at work. While many
    organisations understand this fail to maintain a
    constant, holistic and risk based focus on
    ensuring a safe work environment for their
    people, and this can sometimes end up creating
    seriously unsafe working conditions for their
    employees and staff.

3
Some common mistakes
  • Listed below are some common mistakes that impact
    on the welfare and safety of your employees and
    that can cost your business a great deal of
    reputational, productivity and financial damage
    if not managed efficiently and effectively at all
    times.

4
Not understanding the personal responsibilities
and liabilities of leaders
  • Australian Workplace Health and Safety
    legislation makes a clear link between the
    establishment and operations of a safe and
    healthy workplace, non-compliance with the
    legislative requirements and the personal
    accountability and liability of the senior
    manager(s)/Director(s), with ultimate
    responsibility for decision making and operations
    of the workplace.
  • This means that key senior managers can be
    personally sanctioned (including significant
    fines) where breaches have been proven and
    management planning and action has been found
    lacking.

5
Failing to properly identify workplace health and
safety hazards
  • Though this seems a bit obvious, every business
    must be aware of potential WHS risks and threats
    around their company and employees and do
    something about them.
  • Irrespective of your industry and specific
    organisational operations, health and safety
    risks and hazards are always present. While with
    some industries some hazards are less or more
    likely to occur, it is crucial to take the time
    to properly assess the ones that relate to your
    business.

6
Inconsistent focus on staff training
  • Every business should have regular and ongoing
    assessments made by a competent risk WHS expert,
    to enable them to proactively identify and manage
    their workplace health and safety environment.
  • Once the environmental assessment has been made,
    it is also vitally important to provide necessary
    training to all the employees to ensure that they
    understand the work environment and their role in
    ensuring that it is a safe and healthy place for
    all.

7
CONCLUSION
  • These were just a reminder of some of the issues
    that all workplaces need to have front of mind
    in relation the WHS.
  • For further assistance in evaluating the WHS
    environment for your organisation, identifying
    and assessing risks and ensuring compliance with
    the requirements of the legislation, contact HBA
