Workplace Health & Safety (WHS) Inspections
Ensuring Workplace Health & Safety (WHS) compliance can be a complex task, requiring extensive knowledge in multiple areas of safety measures and risk mitigation. To assist you in meeting your Duty of Care, First 5 Minutes offers expertly delivered Workplace Safety Inspections and other services.
The purpose of a Workplace Safety Inspection is to ensure, as far as reasonably practicable, that an organisation is providing a safe and healthy working environment for their employees.
Prior to the inspection of your facility, one of our workplace safety consultants will meet with you (or your nominated representative), where we will ask you to familiarise the consultant with your facility, including your WHS Plan, risk assessments, training records, meeting minutes and other specific WHS issues.
A First 5 Minutes WHS consultant will perform a full inspection of your facility and your existing WHS Plan and Policies. This will include a review of multiple elements such as; the Means of Escape, Emergency Signs and Exits, Staff Amenities, Welfare, Housekeeping, Policies for First Aid, Trips and Falls, Hazardous Substances, etc. This inspection will be performed in alignment with best practice guide, Australian Standard AS/NZS 4804-2001: Occupational health and safety management systems - General guidelines for principals, systems and supporting techniques.
The purpose of the exit interview is to communicate the key issues identified during the inspection and to ensure our consultant has observed and reviewed all relevant information. The exit interview is also an opportunity for you (or your nominated representative) to ask the consultant questions relating to the inspection.
A Workplace Health and Safety Inspection can make all the difference to ensuring your facility is a safe environment, helping to protect both your people and property.
