The Leading Safety and Risk Management Consultant Australia Wide
Safety and risk management is a vital part of any Australian business. However doing it right and in line with the new Australian WHS legislation is a complex task where many variables need to be considered. Every business is different and has a unique set of risks that may affect the safety of the employees. That’s why experience is essential.
Australia Risk Services are the leaders in performing safety and environmental risk assessment in Australia. We have a long history of providing quality risk assessments, safety auditing and training to our clients nationwide.
Services that are aligned with the WHS Legislation
At Australia Risk Services, we can ensure that your company complies with all the relevant safety legislation. This includes the WHS Act 2011, WHS Regulations 2011 as well as ISO 18011, which lays out how an Occupational Health and Safety Management System should be established; ISO 31000, which sets own the general guidelines for risk management in Australia; and ISO 14001, which goes into more detail on environmental management systems with the goal of measuring and improving environmental impact.

Risk Assessment for Manual Handling
Any business is exposes to risks of manual handling, particularly those in manufacturing, processing, or transport, who at a greater risk of their staff suffering a physical injury. To reduce the chance of injury and the associated costs, we offer a specialised manual handling risk assessment. We will identify the hazards your staff are at most risk from and offer systems that will reduce or remove these hazards.
Risk Assessment for Global Businesses
We are also experienced in assessing enterprise wide risk. As many global companies are coming under fire for their safety records, international standardisation boards are requiring greater compliance and accountability to safety standards. Australia Risk Services is an independent company who can provide documentation of enterprise wide risk assessment to be used for such bodies or for overseas head offices.

Our range of risk assessment services is wide-ranging. Whichever industry you company operates in, we can improve your safety record and reduce the compliance costs. We aim to improve business performance by reducing the processes which are preventing you from earning money (such as inefficient work practices and downtime caused by injury), as well as preventing events that would cost you money (such as public liability cases, reputational loses). At Australia Risk Services, we work with your company to ensure its working as well as it can.
