Right across Australia, you’ll be hard pressed to find any workplace in any industry that doesn’t have any hazardous substances on its premises. Even something as commonplace as washing detergent or floor cleaner can be harmful to a person if not used correctly or in the manner intended. A study from WorkSafe Victoria found that 25% of all employees across Victoria regularly use hazardous substances and dangerous goods in their line of work. If they’re not used according to OHS regulations, the consequences could be catastrophic for both the worker and the business. AMCOSH can provide a comprehensive dangerous goods audit of your business to ensure any potentially hazardous products are being used correctly in order to minimise risk.
A dangerous goods audit enables you as business owner or manager to uphold your legal and moral obligations to your business and the employees. AMCOSH will visit your workplace at an agreed time and date to conduct a thorough audit of the hazardous substances and dangerous goods on site, identifying any potential risks to employee safety. Upon completion of the audit, we’ll provide the business with any necessary information or training resources on managing and minimising these risks.
A dangerous goods audit helps to create a safer workplace for all. To organise an audit of your Melbourne business, call AMCOSH today.
