An overview of our OHS Consulting Services
Ergonomic Assessment. Repetitive and prolonged use of an incorrectly setup computer workstation can lead to muscle discomfort, which may result in injury and reduce productivity. As an employer, you have a duty to provide a safe workplace. Our core ergonomic assessment services will provide you with confidence that your workers have their workstation setup safely and understand what good workstation setup looks like.
Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE). FCE is a series of standardised tests, practices and observations that are combined to objectively assess a worker’s functional ability to complete work tasks safely. FCEs may be used to strategically develop Return-to-Work (RTW) Plans that allow light duties be identified. This will assist a worker to be safely returned back to work and reduce the likelihood on an aggravation;
Health Promotion. Workplace health promotion is the process of enabling workers to increase their control over the determinants of health and thereby improve their wellbeing. We work with you to plan, develop, implement and evaluate health promotion policies and projects using a variety of strategies, including but not limited to health education, media and consultation. Workforce development and capacity building strategies are also important components of health promotion practice.
Occupational Hygiene. Noise and Dust Monitoring. Workers who are exposed to excessive workplace noise and dust can incur associated health problems. The legislation outlines Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs) for workplace noise and dust hazards that a business must comply with for all industries. Our core noise monitoring and dust monitoring services are conducted in line with the appropriate Australian Standards. Monitoring methodologies are developed specific to the OHS needs and OHS objectives of your business.
OHS Auditing. An OHS Audit assists businesses to evaluate how effectively safety is implemented into their operations. Undertaken strategically, an OHS audit program will assist a business establish a safe workplace that continues to improve. Our OHS audit methodology identifies the strengths of how a business manages workplace safety, and the opportunities that are available to improve safety performance. Our core OHS audit services include OHSMS Audits (against AS4801), WHS Director and Officer Due Diligence Audits (Section 27-5, Model Work Health and Safety Bill) and the development of Site Specific Self OHS Audit Tools.
OHS Management System (OHSMS) Development. An OHSMS is the documented OHS policy and OHS procedures that define the intentional way that a business creates a safe workplace and improves their OHS performance. An effectively implemented OHSMS is fundamental to deliver an organisationally consistent and effective approach to safety. Our core service sees us work closely with your business to develop an OHSMS that is specific to your business’ needs and that addresses your business’ OHS hazards.
Physical Demand Statements. Businesses have a duty to provide a safe workplace for their workers. How do you currently quantify the physical demands placed on workers at your workplace? How do you know what the actual physical demands of the light duties offered at your workplace are? The development of Physical Demand Statements will take the subjectivity out of this and improve the effectiveness of pre-employment medicals and Return-to-Work.
