Workplace health and safety is an integral part of a business, implemented to protect employees. However, more than 100,000 serious workplace injuries still occur every year in Australia. Ranging from mental stress, to trips and falls, to collisions with objects.
How can SAI Global help?
SAI Global is a global risk management provider that has audited and trained thousands of organisations seeking to meet the ISO 45001 international standard for workplace health and safety.
“SafeWork Australia reveals that 40 per cent of claims have been made by employees in administration, professional services, sales, community work and management,” workplace safety spokesperson at SAI Global Rod Beath said.
“Our audits reveal that risks are most significant in those organisations where management has not taken on board the company’s Workplace Health and Safety policy, or have not included and consulted everyone in the company.”
