Smart OHS systems is the premier OHS management tool in the competitive
The system was developed by Chris Beasley, whose company, Smart OHS has
been delivering OHS consulting and training services to the large and small
companies, such as: AHA (NSW) and RailCorp since 2005.
Why Smart OHS?
By talking to many different business owners and their staff over this
time, Chris experienced first hand just how little time most had to commit
to OHS. It became increasingly clear that some workplaces (who did have
systems) were using over-complicated and extremely complex systems. What
was even more worrying was that some workplaces didn't even have an OHS
system in place.
With or without an OHS system in place, Smart OHS systems adapt to
your workplace to make OHS quick and simple. Best of all, the
system is about to be upgraded and offered at a low annual subscription
basis (and sometimes for free) through your Workers Compensation insurer.
How Smart OHS systems works
The Smart OHS system works by issuing an ongoing series of email reminders,
which prompt members to undertake OHS-related tasks.
A typical member would login four times per month and would perform such
A monthly workplace inspection, new staff inductions, load some contractor
insurance details (so they cannot lapse without the member knowing), and
possibly lodge an incident report.
Each system task is very easy to perform and the details can be saved by
keying into the online Smart OHS system. One of the key features (of the
system) is that each task records a date for follow up so that the member
will be notified through an email when they need to monitor how an issue
has progressed. Each member can also view a 'My History' section of all
records created at any time. Using Smart OHS makes OHS very easy. Smart OHS
makes OHS sense.
Who needs Smart OHS?
The answer in short - every small - medium sized business in most fields.
It is a common misconception that OHS and having an OHS (management) system
is optional. This is not the case.
According to the various state-based OHS Acts, Regulations and Australian
Standard 4801 (OHSMS), every business in Australia must have a mechanism in
place to routinely review and improve OHS within the workplace (an OHS
Management System). With Smart OHS, businesses can feel more comfortable
that they are compliant with all relevant OHS legislation.
