Attention business owners! Are you taking care of your most important assets?

by , 20 June 2014
Your company has of a lot of assets. Your premises, vehicles, equipment and financial assets; all of them are of huge value.

But there's one asset you may not think of as an 'asset'. And it's the one asset your company can't run without.

No, it's not your finance department.

It's your general workforce! It's the men and women who do the work in your company.

Without these people, your company will come to a grinding halt. To prevent this, you need to take care of your workforce. Here's what you need to do to ensure they're safe and working at their best.

Take this quick quiz to find out if you can handle the DoL hot seat
Which risk assessments have to be checked by an approved inspector every two years?
Is it absolutely necessary for your company to appoint and train someone as a risk assessor?
When was the last time you did a risk assessment? (Is that too long?)
Have you checked and double checked the less obvious health hazards?
If you can't answer even one of these questions you're not only putting your employee's lives at risk; you're also putting yourself in danger of massive fine from the DoL.
Don't wait until it's too late.

Protect your most important asset with risk management

To protect your workforce, you need to know what dangers they face. This is the only way you can carry out effective risk management at your workplace. 
To help you do this, you must do a risk assessment. By identifying the hazards and risks, you can implement specific safety precautions. 
These create a line of defence between your company's life-blood and the dangers they face.
But you can't stop there. To effectively protect your employees, you need to ensure they can protect themselves too.

Train your employees to protect themselves to improve your risk management

If you just put safety measures in place and don't train your employees on how to use them or why they're there, they'll be utterly useless. 
For your new safety procedures to work properly, you must give your employees OHS training on them. 
This training must cover the dangers involved in their work. Then train them to use or follow safety procedures to protect themselves from these dangers.
By following this process, you'll be able to protect your workforce and keep your company running like a well-oiled machine.
