Safety Management System Design for Australian Businesses

Australia Risk Services have close to 20 years experience in designing safety management systems.

We offer safety systems that identify and seek to remedy safety, environment, and health risks in the workplace. Whether your company is a large industrial plant or a small craft workshop, we can help you reduce and remove plant, manual handling, hazardous materials and other risks. Our wide range of experience in risk assessment means we have a working knowledge of many different industrial and agricultural processes throughout Australia.

When we design a system for your Australian business, you can be assured it is unique to you and your company. There are no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solutions for occupational health and safety, so we scrutinise your workplace carefully. What’s more important any OHSMS developed by Australian Risk Services is completely aligned with the Australian WHS legislation.

We also provide more specialised advice in hazardous materials and confined spaces, as well as surveys of behaviour culture and how this may affect safety and financial returns. We aim to help you manage those aspects that are preventing you from earning money, as well as those that could cost you money.
