Safety Management Systems
Sometimes it’s difficult to understand what the challenges in your safety and health environment are. Information might be difficult to come by. Many times, collecting the information consistently is a problem. Merely understanding why safety issues become a problem is a challenge.
That is exactly how OHS Compliance Group can help. Our experts will be on-site and conduct a full audit – not matter what industry your business operates in. Their focus will be on the hard and soft issues – from safety equipment and standards to attitudes and knowledge of the staff.
Safety Risk Assessments
OHS Compliance Group develops, reviews, manages comprehensive human health risk assessments.
We leave no stone unturned and will investigate even what may seem to be the smallest of challenges and find the root causes.
Constant and consistent awareness and communication backed up by reinforcement by supervisors, managers and leaders are what changes cultures and behaviour. OHS Compliance Group will provide an array of communication techniques to keep safety awareness at a high level.
Some of these communication tactics include multi-media, quizzes, poster campaigns and refresher training.
Environmental Impact Assessment:
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a process that identifies both the positive and negative environmental effects of significant developments prior to planning permission being considered. It aims to prevent, reduce or offset any identified significant adverse environmental effects of development proposals.
Our assessment ensures that an organization’s decision-makers consider environmental impacts before they reach a conclusion to proceed with new projects.

Health and Safety Programmes
A Health and Safety Programme sets out a plan to back up an organization’s health and safety policy statement.
We help clients achieve positive results in productivity, quality and health and safety by integrating all aspects of a company’s operations in our H&S programme.
Health and Safety Files:
The Health and Safety File is a repository of health and safety information and serves as a legal record that will be of use to both clients and end users. It is a vital source of information which should form part of any health and safety management system in place for projects.
The level of detail of the file must be in proportion with the risks involved, and the degree of effort and resources expended to compile the health and safety file must also be proportionate to the risks in the project.
We customise this file to include everything you need.
Health and Safety Agents:
Our Health and Safety Agent ensure that projects comply with statutory requirements under the Construction Regulations.
Safety Policy and Procedures:
Safety procedures cover specific safety activities. These procedures outline the steps to be taken to implement a policy. Some procedures are specific to a job or task while others are general descriptions of how to implement a policy.
ISO 45001 has now been published and provides emphasis on proactively taking steps to minimise harm to workers through leadership and participation, understanding the context of the business taking action to manage risks.
Our ISO 45001 consultants help clients transition to the new standard, perform internal audits and facilitate third party certification.
