Often our program participants are in the process of developing a WHS
framework for their business for the first time, while others have had
many years of implementation and reviews, seeing the benefit of having
an independent review as an effective way of maintaining the currency
of their framework.
Who in my business should be involved?
Your WHS framework is not only based around the creation of policies
and procedures – the implementation of these needs to happen within
the day to day operations that occur.
The WHS Health Check visit is open to both administration and
operations sides of your business, “that wont work here” can be
discussed and solutions created by the relevant people in the business.
