How do you do WHS?

Every business is different. Large or small, no matter your industry, getting people home safe and sound after being in the workplace is the key goal here. While there are certain risks associated with industry sectors, there will also be risks and hazards that are particular to your workplace.

Everyone can do it. Everyone should be doing it. Its all about keeping people safe.

In partnership with Safework NSW, we visited local businesses to find out about some of the things they are doing to create a safe and happy workplace. Check out the video below…

WHS is for everyone

Work Health and Safety is everyone’s responsibility and good communication is key to reducing risks and improving your workplace culture.

Safework NSW have a range of resources to help you on your WHS journey such as the Hazard library A-ZCodes of practice and the risk Risk radar.

You also have access to practical resources including the Easy to do WHS Toolkit and the Workplace Wellbeing Assessment Tool.

To help you understand how it all comes together under the national WHS framework is the Australian WHS Strategy document.

You can find links to many of the above resources (and more) in the “Eyes on Safety” E-Book.
