[dt_sc_h3]Why is WHS necessary? [/dt_sc_h3]
Safe Work Australia compiles statistical data and reports on work-related injuries in Australia. The last survey conducted has put a value in excess of $60 billion on the cost associated with such injuries. With over 100,000 Workers Compensation claims in the last year, not including injuries to those who were self-employed, there is a considerable loss of productivity and time/money spent on worker rehabilitation.
Knowing the WHS laws, previously known as Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), will help you avoid unnecessary costs and damage to your business caused by workplace injury and illness. It will also provide your business with a strong foundation to achieve long-term success. WHS shouldn’t be seen as an additional cost. It is better to deal with health and safety issues before they escalate.
[dt_sc_blockquote type=”type1″ align=”center” cite=”business.qld.gov.au”] “As an employer, you must provide work health and safety training in order to keep your workplace safe for you, your staff and any visitors or customers. You need to train your staff when they start working for you and provide regular refresher training.” [/dt_sc_blockquote]
RMTO recognises that organisations have a statutory obligation to train staff as well as the obligation for workers to be competent and involved in ensuring a safe workplace. We provide managers and practititoners with a library of short courses created for any facility or building using:
[dt_sc_fancy_ul style=”tick” variation=””]
- Model Work Health and Safety legislation
- Australian Standards
- Codes of Practice
- Industry Best Practice
Each course has been developed to help satisfy WHS requirements for managers and individuals, all having responsibilities under legislation. Our courses are short to ensure that we take advantage of the recognised 10-15 minute attention span of the learner. Our presentations are colourful, precise and informative, with the successful completion of a short quiz rewarded with the issue of a Certificate of Achievement. RMTO have the capacity to manage a training programme on behalf of large organisations, with documentary reports provided as evidence of ongoing commitment to WHS training. Significant discounts are available for group bookings.
