The Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Essentials Program is a free safety consultation service, administered by WorkSafe but delivered by our experienced and qualified consultants.
The consultant will come to your workplace, learn about your business, identify any hazards and provide practical advice on how you might address them – all then documented in an easy-to-understand safety action plan.
The consultant will contact you post receipt of your action plan to discuss this in more detail and then visit your workplace again within 3-6 months of this visit to discuss any changes you have made based on your action plan and to provide further advice and support.
The consultant will then undertake a final visit within 9-12 months of your initial visit to discuss the progress of key actions identified, improvements made and any challenges that have impacted implementation of the action plan.
