Are you choosing to take the gamble that could lose you everything? An accident in the workplace will certainly mean increased WorkCover premiums but, if prosecution and litigation for damages are pursued, the cost could be millions! Workplace Health and Safety issues are covered (and enforced) by law.
It is not the role of company executives to know all the details of WH&S issues and regulations but it could mean the whole future of a business if the responsibilities and legal obligations that bind company owners and management are overlooked.
As this is a specialist and highly trained area, few company owners or managers take the time to qualify themselves as WH&S professionals. This is the specialist, professional help and advice that is offered by DRA Safety Specialists.
DRA Safety Consultants usually will begin with a full inspection of your workplace and assemble a complete audit of the property that covers all areas of health and safety.
The report issued following the inspection and audit identifies hazards and areas of possible danger to workers and visitors. Areas of possible legal liability are identified with the report showing the minimum statutory standards required and giving recommendations on how to meet or exceed these standards. The specialist needs of individual industries and businesses are fully assessed on behalf of the company during the audit for detailed consideration of legal and insurance requirements.
DRA Safety Specialists will undertake specialist services such as workplace noise monitoring and lighting surveys. Incident investigations are covered in the training seminars but these and other services can be carried out by DRA Safety Specialists on behalf of the client if required.
DRA Safety Specialists provides special services including:
- Noise mapping
- Noise dosimetry
- Noise monitoring
- Lighting level surveys
- Ergonomic assessments of workstations
- Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Measurement
