We conduct safety audits and provide reports with practical recommendations which enable you to comply with the OH&S Act and Regulations.
MSS site audits involve one of our expert consultants attending your site to assess and review your OHS systems and practices to ensure your organisation is meeting its responsibility across all legislative requirements. This includes, but not limited to:
MSS will provide a detailed site audit report outlining our findings, including advice and recommendations on the most practicable way to address any problems found, this may include:
- Action list detailing level of urgency
- Document review
- Information on further guidance if required
Your MSS consultant can review and assess your organisations SWMS to ensure they meet 2017 Victorian OHS Regulations, are relevant to site conditions and address all hazards associated to the site. Review and assessment will encompass all facets of a compliant SWMS including but not limited to:
- All hazards are identified
- Risk levels are assessed
- Control measures are practical and effective
- Responsible persons are identified
- All personnel performing the task have read and signed off
- SWMS are not convoluted
Your MSS consultant can provide guidance on revising and updating your organisations SWMS if needed, alternatively we can revise and update them for you.
Your MSS consultant can develop SWMS your organisation may require. SWMS provided will comply with 2017 Victorian OHS Regulations and contain guidance for site use. Your organisation must have SWMS for all tasks/activities that have associated risks.
Your MSS consultant can assist with reviewing and complying with WorkSafe notices. The notice will be reviewed and your organisation will be provided with a clear and concise plan in order to meet your compliance obligation within the WorkSafe allocated timeframe to avoid prosecution and fines where possible.
All incidents/accidents should be investigated, primarily to identify all causation factors and implement control measures to prevent a reoccurrence. Other reasons for investigating include insurance claims, workers compensation payments, reputation of the organisation, litigation, requirements under contract terms.
MSS consultants are experienced in incident/accident investigation, they provide clear guidelines on key elements of the investigation process including evidence gathering, communication process and analysis techniques. Having involvement in the investigation from the start will enable MSS to carry out the investigation efficiently, evidence and our recall of events diminish over time, so it’s important that an investigation is undertaken promptly.
Although the process of incident/accident investigation is reactive, by implementing practical corrective measures, it is also one way we can contribute to achieving a safer workplace and hopefully prevent injuries and fatalities at work.
