Anitech Consulting has trained staff (OHS Consultants) to conduct hazard audits and to help you to identify and assess hazards within your business and to provide you with recommendations for effective management and control of risks.
Occupational Health and Safety legislation requires “employers” to address hazards present in their places of work. Once they are identified, the employer has an obligation (duty of care) to assess the adequacy of their current controls and to implement any new or additional controls that may be necessary, in order to reduce the risk to an acceptable level (or to be “as low as reasonably practicable”). In many situations, each hazard must then be formally assessed to determine the “severity” of the risk it poses, through assessing the probability and consequences of potential incidents it might cause.
Anitech Consulting’s OHS Consultants help employers identify workplace hazards, assess the “severity” of inherent risk and determine the need for additional or appropriate risk controls — using Hierarchy of Control methodology. We use your own documentation if you have it, our own tried and proven templates, or develop documentation just for your business.
You can ask us to help you with conducting Plant Risk Assessments, Manual Handling Risk Assessments, Traffic Management Risk Assessment, Chemical Risk Assessments, Fall risk Assessments, First Aid Risk Assessments and developing counter measures to mitigate some of the risks to make your workplace safer. We can advice you on implementing permit-to-work systems and safe systems of work for maintenance and contractors, including the isolation of energy (lock out and tag out).
