Company Culture – Safety Climate

Workplace Safety Participation is an investment with measurable benefit, engagement and improvement is an asset for your business.

Good OH&S/WHS = better productivity and improved culture.

Workers feel cared for and trust organisation commitment in a healthy and safe workplace, which in turn promotes a better company image, loyalty and trust.

Promote your company image, engage your team and be proud of your commitment to safety.

Manage your risk by adopting 4 simple guidelines.

In a reporting culture, everyone is encouraged to speak up and report safety concerns without the fear of reprisal, fostering a spirit of trust that exists between the entire team, management and employees.

A Flexible Culture is one that builds the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties and tough times. It adapts to unforeseen developments and make changes based on incoming information and it allows a business to push past obstacles when something new or different happens.

In a Learning Culture, team members collect, assess and share information, both formally and informally. That includes engaging your team in all safety concerns, education and training. It is important for employees to learn from their experiences and apply that knowledge to their jobs.

Everyone does their part.

An engaged culture binds the other three cultures. The key is engaging ALL team members to demonstrate they value safety and get involved.

“The Master Locksmiths Association of Australasia Ltd (MLAA) represents the interests of over 700 locksmithing businesses in Australia and New Zealand. The MLAA needed a comprehensive range of Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) for use by our Business Members. Risk Management Essentials developed a series of SOP’s specifically tailored to the needs of a locksmithing business.

RME did this promptly and for a fair and reasonable price, and our Business Members are now using these SOP’s extensively, and in the process working towards meeting their statutory obligations”.

Tim Bunn, Director of Golf Operations Yarra Bend Golf Club

I have recently completed a 15-year membership period as a Director and Deputy Chairman of Thomas Carr College. In 2018 I reached a conclusion that in the current risk environment facing Boards at organisations such as the College, there was a significant need to address the risks faced by the College and in so doing to reduce the potential liabilities faced by the Board, a conclusion the Board agreed with. The Board and College Management reviewed a number of products to address these issues and selected Risk Management Essentials to undertake a risk assessment for the College.

The RME onsite assessment and 12-month action plan with quarterly reviews was comprehensive, concise and easy to follow and was very well received by the Board with us all believing it was of very significant value to us. The Board all felt they were breathing somewhat easier with this in place and that we were surpassing our obligations to provide a safe and engaged workplace and school for our students.

I was also a Board member and Chairman of Catholic Homes, a large Retirement Living and Aged care Not for Profit organisation, for a 10-year period (2004 to 2014). If the RME product had been available during this period, I would most definitely have engaged RME to undertake a similar comprehensive assessment of our risk profile.
