Health Safety Environment OHS WHS Assessment HSE Australia

Occupational Health & Safety Gap Analysis

We partner with you to review your existing programs and help you identify any gaps before public or more formal audits. Our confidential approach helps enhance corporate profiles and company reputations for workplace health and safety compliance (OHS compliance). HSE Australia’s WHS Practitioners support industry and government across Australia. We understand the need for compliance and the increasing rate of change in workplace health and safety legislation. Our ability to act independently, confidentially, and quickly continue to be our strength, and success, in this area.

Our WHS compliance reviews cover systems and programs such as:

WHS standards and legislation often change. Our expertise covers the following areas:

  • Self-Insurer Standards
  • AS/NZS 4801 / 4804
  • AS/NZS 14007
  • Environment and Protection Act & Legislation

Compliance with WHS Act and Regulations

The goal of a Workplace Occupational Health and Safety Compliance and Gap Analysis is to evaluate an organisation’s current WHS policies, procedures, and practices to ensure compliance with the WHS Act and Regulations.

During such a Work Health & Safety audit we will identify any areas where the organisation is not in compliance with WHS requirements, as well as any gaps in the organisation’s WHS management systems relevant to business operations.

This process can provide valuable insights into an organisation’s WHS performance and can help identify areas where improvements are needed. Even small improvements to a company’s WHS management can help to minimize the risk of workplace accidents and worker injuries, reduce legal liability, and improve overall workplace safety.

Additionally, the process can assist companies to stay updated with the relevant WHS Act and Regulations and make necessary changes to comply with them.
