Before any work  commences, we spend time studying the way work is performed in the workplace.  This enables us to draft tailored solutions that suit the environment.

 

We use a proven 4D project methodology involving four basic steps:

  1. Diagnosing (needs)
  2. Developing (solutions)
  3. Deploying (solutions)
  4. Determining (effectiveness)

1. Diagnose

To ascertain organisational needs, we conduct a thorough assessment to uncover any compliance gaps against relevant legislation and/or safety standards (such as AS/NZ 480)1, as requested by the client.

 

This is done by conducting:

  • An OHS audit against set criteria; and
  • Undertaking a workplace risk assessment.

 

2. Develop

This step involves studying work processes, observing work being undertaken and then developing solutions which suit the business, such as:

  • Refining or developing work instructions and standard operating procedures;
  • Developing policies to ensure an operating framework for procedures; and
  • Developing training and assessment material.

 

3. Deploy

This step involves developing techniques and strategies to embed safety solutions in your business. The key to this step is management commitment and employee engagement and involvement. 

 

Strategies may include:

  • Training and demonstration;
  • Online solutions including:
    • records management;
    • contractor management;
    • learning management;
    • Hazard and risk management; and
    • Development of online training.
  • Workshops;
  • Staff meetings; and
  • Presentations.

 

4. Determine

This step is designed to ensure that safety objectives have been met and further refine solutions if required. This can be done in the short term by:

  • Observing solutions in action;
  • Extracting reports from electronic systems;
  • Measurement against established metrics;
  • Discussing effectiveness of solutions with workers.

In the longer term, we can gauge effectiveness of solutions by examining your safety statistics such as the number of injuries and claims.

 

Our clients also have the option of choosing to undertake some of these steps on their own or with our assistance. We work flexibly and in a way that suits the client’s needs and  budget.
