Our core services
Our services are flexible and varied to meet your holistic workplace health and safety needs. Our core services include:
Developing and reviewing OHS Management Systems
OHS management systems are a collection of all the policies, procedures, activities, and responsibilities that together, form the systematic approach for how your business manages occupational health and safety.
CCI can assist your business develop and review these systems to ensure your business is compliant with relevant OHS laws.
Filling the OHS gap
Not all workplaces have the resources to have their own in-house OHS expert. Our consultants are available to work on-site to perform the ‘in house’ OHS Advisor or Manager role, or work with a staff member new to their OHS role.
This can be for a short or long term and can be available full or part time. Even just one visit per fortnight may be enough to keep on top of your occupational health and safety duties and responsibilities.
Responding to tender requests are becoming tougher with the OHS component requiring more evidence and having more decision weight placed upon it.
CCI's experienced and highly-qualified consultants have assisted many CCI Members with OHS requirements in the tender proposal process who have gone on to win the opportunity.
Workplace inspections and audits
Members see the value in a fresh set of eyes objectively measuring the OHS of the business. This can be done in a number of ways including a comprehensive workplace inspection or audit.
CCI Consultants are experienced in auditing the OHS of a business against WA’s legislation or the model Work Health and Safety legislation, against AS/NZS: 4801, or an internal audit against the business’s OHS management system.
Occupational Health and Safety can be of great benefit to your business. It assists your business to meet your OSH duty of care, encourages best practice work methods, increases compliance and productivity, mitigates risk and reduces costs associated with incidents in the workplace.
