The end of the financial year is a busy times. There is a lot of work to be done and satisfaction in looking at the accomplishments of the past year.
For many of us the end of this month marks something else too. It’s six months since the harmonized Work Health and Safety laws came into effect.
These laws marked a big shift in WHS policy and meant taking the time to ensure that we comply with the new requirements.
Have you made the needed changes? Are they working in your business?
What can I do?
Here are some simple steps you can take to review the effectiveness of your systems:
- Has our health and safety policy been reviewed and updated since January 1?
- Look at your injury and near miss reports for the last six months. Has there been a decrease? An increase? Has a new problem started to occur?
- Have you meet your positive performance indicator goals?
- If appropriate, does your WHS committee meet regularly and follow up on it’s decisions?
These are just some of the things that you can do to review the effectiveness of your WHS systems and continue to improve your business.
