Those who work in the building and construction industry have many different elements to account for when making safety decisions which can often make it a complex and challenging process. Along with promoting and creating an environment where the workers feel safe, consideration needs to be given to legislative requirements and current systems and processes.
To assist organisations in improving their workplace safety, Master Builders SA offers a safety advisory service where we focus on assessing, identifying and controlling safety processes. The programs within this service are designed to work within your workplace’s current systems, not create new ones.
Our industry often requires engagement with contractors or subcontractors. Where this exists, contractor risk management needs to be an integral aspect of your safety management system. The complexity of contractor management systems and processes differ depending on the type of work that the contractor is engaged in.
Our consultants can work with you to develop management systems and processes that address all aspects of legislation applicable to contractors, including but not limited to safety policy and procedures, safety checklists, safety induction and/or safety training.
Should you already have a contractor management system in place, we can conduct a review of these processes to ensure you are up to date with current work health and safety legislation and meeting industry standards. We can also provide recommendations for improvement should they be needed.
Our consultants can provide you with an objective and independent analysis of your workplace incidents through an investigation that involves identifying and recording critical information, conducting interviews, analysing data and determining causes.
Our goal is to highlight inadequacies or weaknesses within your workplace systems and processes, not to determine who or what caused the accident.
The information gathered will be presented in a written report outlining areas of concern and unsafe behaviours with recommendations on more effective control strategies to reduce and/or eliminate potential issues in the future.
You don't need to be an expert in safety when you're a member of Master Builders. Just call us and we can help.
