Why do I need to certify my safety system?
Safe work practice is broadly recognised as a license to operate within the contemporary business environment in Australia and around the world business environment in Australia and around the world.
Zero harm and 100% legal compliance is the goal for many organisations when it comes to safety. Both of these challenges require systematic management discipline.
So we are committed to safety but why do we need Safety Certification?
The main reason for Safety Certification is because external stakeholders like your customers, regulators and governments want an external independent assessment that your safe system of work is robust and will facilitate safe outcomes so far as is reasonably practicable. New customers (in particular principals where you may be operating on their site) want to know you have robust safety processes in place well before you start work. Safety Certification is also a good tool to help you manage risks, legal compliance, improve your processes and focus the organisation.
Certification of your Safety system is a powerful marketing tool. You have done the hard yards implementing the system so show people you have a commitment to your workers, to safety leadership, to the community and to meeting your customers’ expectations.
