You would hate to be responsible for someone being hurt or falling ill because of your business. And the financial consequences can also be severe. That’s why having an effective and compliant work health and safety system in place is essential to long term, sustainable success.

As a business owner, you have a responsibility to make sure that your employees, customers and the public won’t be harmed by anything your business does.

And creating a safe work environment not only helps you meet your obligations — it can also help you retain key staff and maximise productivity, by avoiding unnecessary costs from workplace injury and illness.
