Delivering practical, customised safety solutions that empower our clients to manage their safety obligations in-house.
It is no longer a requirement under Work Health and Safety Legislation to have an accredited Work Health and Safety Officer or WHSO as they were more commonly known. This change however, does not remove your requirement to keep abreast of work health and safety legislation, issues in your workplace or an effective safety framework. When was the last time you conducted a workplace inspection, chaired your Work Health and Safety Committee, ran a fire drill or undertook an investigation into a workplace incident? Do you know the latest changes to the safety legislation in your industry? You need to, and STAR Consultancy can help.
Engaging a STAR Consultancy Locum provides the client with a hands-on safety service relevant to their workplace.
Very often, safety requirements can be “out of sight, out of mind.” In the everyday hustle and bustle of a busy work environment, it can be difficult to keep the safety of our workplace at the forefront of our minds. Engaging STAR Consultancy as a Safety Locum, gives your workplace a hands on safety resource dedicated solely to ensuring the safety in your workplace. Your locum can organise and chair Safety Committee Meetings, hold training courses, conduct incident investigations, work on policy and procedures, undertake audits and inspections or just provide general advice to you and your workforce. Arrangements can be made for your Locum to attend the workplace as little or as often as you require and are flexible to meet your business’s needs.
Prevention is better than the Cure.
Depending on the size and associated risks of your business, a safety audit should be conducted every 1 to 3 years. The type or complexity of the audit required will also vary depending on your clients and business’s needs. STAR Consultancy has a range of audits to suit your businesses requirement, timeframe and budget.
Three levels of service are available:

Who, When, Why and How?
Should an incident occur in your workplace it is essential that you conduct a full investigation as soon as possible. Quick action can prevent further incidents from occurring and ensure that you meet your legislative requirements. This process may also highlight deficiencies in your existing safety management system or gaps in your staffs training and/or skill set. STAR Consultancy will attend your workplace the day of the incident and, using the best suited incidents investigation model, provide a detailed report of the root causes to the incident and suggested control measures to implement.
