Your Workplace Safety
Workplace safety philosophy is as simple as ensuring your employees make it home in the same condition as they arrived to work.
Complying with Health & Safety Legislation can be confusing, time consuming and a legal minefield. Non compliance can have serious consequences, including death or serious injury to an employee, resulting in fines, prosecutions and lost productivity to your business.
There have been many recent prosecutions in various industry sectors that have resulted in expensive and unnecessary court battles for the companies involved. Had these companies been able to show they had stringent health and safety policies and procedures in place, the out come could have been very different.
Do you find yourself asking these questions?
• Where do I start when it comes to health and safety?
• How do I know if our business complies fully with the Health & Safety Employment Act?
• What do I need to do to be fully compliant?
• How can I get compliant without spending a fortune on unnecessary systems?
• How can I get the expert health and safety advice I need without having to employ my own in house Health & Safety Manager?
If you do then TriEX can help.

Do you take ‘all practicable steps’ to prevent harm to workers while they perform workplace tasks? To fulfill this requirement a detailed analysis of the tasks performed is required to identify all potential hazards and eliminate or reduce the risk of harm. The workplace hazard and its associated controls can then be added to your hazard register and hazard control plans. The hazards and corrective actions can also be included in your safe operating procedures (SOPs) and used as part of your task specific training plan.
