Audits & Inspections
Do you have a major audit coming and unsure how to show compliance? Do you have a goal to become certified to a recognised standard? Are you concerned work being done in your workplace doesn’t match the way it’s described in your system? We can help confirm where you are and what you need to do to improve your compliance and/or performance levels.
Leadership & Culture
Have you got the HS culture in your organisation that you want? Are your leaders unclear or uncertain about the type of HS behaviours that lead to a good HS culture? We can develop and implement programs that improve your HS culture and your HS leadership performance.
Have you got a short-term HS resource issue, either to bridge a gap between recruitment, tackle an urgent project, or supplement your existing team for a specific period? We can provide you with specialist HS resources, that work with a coaching philosophy, to help you tackle your short-term HS resource needs.
Is your existing System too cumbersome or bureaucratic? Have you got repetitive HS issues that you’re struggling to fix? Is Contractor Management a problem that needs to be improved? We can work collaboratively with your team to develop and implement solutions that resolve HS issues, improves performance and increases efficiency.
Frequently Asked Questions
As an employer you are required to provide and maintain a safe place of work, where so far as is practical, your employees are not exposed to hazards. Additional responsibilities include providing employees with instruction, information, training and supervision, a method for consultation on WHS issues and measures to provide protection where exposure to hazards is not preventable.
In practice, it is often the way WHS responsibilities are carried out within a business that have the greatest impact on its WHS performance. This is a key area where Barclayss® can help you and your team.
The first stage is to decide whether you need to, or want to achieve a particular HS standard. This provides a guide for defining the structure of your HS Management System. Even if it isn’t your main priority, it’s a good idea to follow this route, as if you decide to target achievement of a standard in the future, your Management System will be restructured in an appropriate way.
The next stage is to conduct a gap analysis of your current system/documentation against the selected structure to highlight the areas that are absent or need work to bring them up to the required level. Then the work begins….. creating new documentation and updating or improving current documentation to ensure that it provides the required level of information for the system users.
The final stage is to implement the system, through a coordinated roll-out process. This stage will involve training leaders and employees in the key responsibilities and actions that they need to do to comply with the system.
Sounds easy! It can be, but it also can be resource intensive and technically complicated, and these are areas where Barclayss® can help you get started.
The route to certification starts with a conversation with an accreditation provider. The provider will share the expectations and requirements needed to gain certification. They will also confirm the process that you need to follow.
The next step us typically a gap analysis audit that reviews your system against the relevant standard and highlights areas for improvement prior to the formal certification audit.
The certification audit will assess your level of compliance against both the standard and your own system requirements and highlight any areas of non-conformance. If minimal non-conformances are identified, you can be granted your accreditation shortly after this audit. However, this is not usual, as most audits identify a mixture of major and/or minor non-conformances that require work to fix them. Once resolved, the provider will return to assess the non-conformances and confirm whether they can be closed out. Once closed out, the provider can recommend to the certification body that your organisation receives its certification.
Again, this is a resource intensive and technically complicated process and Barclayss® can help you with managing your journey to certification.
The new WHS legislation is expected to be enacted in WA from January 2022.
Within the legislation, if WHS duties are new, or have changed substantially from the current arrangements, there will be a transition period for WA businesses to adopt the new requirements. During this transition period, businesses will have time to assess the implication of the new arrangements on their current operation and work out what changes they need to complete to achieve compliance. Barclayss® can assist you in identifying the required changes, developing any new/modified systems, work methodologies and/or operating practices and implementing them in your workplace.
Where the new arrangements are identical/very similar to the current requirements, it is anticipated (although not guaranteed) that the established processes within a business will ensure compliance, when the legislation is in place.
However, it’s recommended that businesses conduct a review of their existing HS Management System against the requirements of the new legislation, even where it appears that the legislation hasn’t changed significantly, to identify where there may be gaps and the need for improvement. Barclayss® can help you with completing these reviews and tackling any improvement areas that they reveal.
