- The level of commitment to workplace safety: As a leader in your business, are you committed to safety, if so how committed are you?
- How much have you invested in your Leadership to give them the skills to manage workplace safety effectively and consistently?
- Have you invested in specific and meaningful training to equip your staff with the skills for your workplace activities and safety procedures? Did you know, this investment is far cheaper than the cost associated with a workplace injury?
- Improve your consultation process by empowering staff to improve WHS performance by involving your employees in the entire process and on the merits of possible solution. As well as, the implementation of ‘Best Practices’ using a Safety Action Plan and regularly reviewing safety performance.
- Active Injury Management and a proactive Return to Work program will minimise and reduce the cost of workers compensation and assist in getting employees back to work sooner.
- Working closely with your Insurer and Risk Management team can help minimise the cost of workplace accidents and the financial costs involved with an accident and/or dispute. Consistently, investigate appropriateness of workers compensation estimates and premiums.
- Change workplace behaviours by developing a safety culture of accountability and defined responsibilities. Develop a culture that makes it easier for people to speak out about workplace safety and bullying issues.
- Make safety a priority in your business. Plan for it, invest in it; manage it and regulate it. In short, make safety an intrinsic part of managing your business!
