Expertise in Action
When a workplace environment is deemed high risk it may be due to environmental factors which effect workers such as heat, cold, altitude, depth, air quality, confined spaces, heights, remote location and stability. It may also refer to the types of products being dealt with such as minerals, fuels, chemicals, fibres, liquids, fires and gases. In Australia Work Health and Safety regulations require rigorous and thorough risk assessment, planning and safety procedures be put in place and emergency response in the form of hazard or medical response adequately available. Our experts have extensive experience in the provision of WHS compliant plans and management strategies to Australian and International companies.
