Workplace Health & Safety (WHS) Inspections & Risk Assessments

What is a Workplace Inspection?

A Konekt workplace inspection is a comprehensive onsite assessment designed to identify potential workplace hazards. Using a thorough and structured assessment process, along with discussions with key staff in the workplace, hazards are identified and suitable control measures are recommended. Following an onsite inspection by a Konekt safety professional, a report is provided detailing hazards that have been identified, along with recommendations for control measures. A plan is also provided, identifying priority actions recommended to reduce the risk associated with the identified hazards. Where relevant, compliance can also be measured against the relevant WHS legislation and published guidance material (for example, AS 1657 – fixed platforms walkways, stairways and ladders, and the Building Code of Australia)

 

What is a Risk Assessment?

A Konekt risk assessment is a more focused assessment, used to identify hazards and risk levels associated with a particular work task, activity, or system, so that suitable control measures can be identified and implemented. A risk assessment can be undertaken in addition to a general workplace inspection or as a stand-alone specific service. Following a risk assessment by a Konekt safety professional, a detailed report is provided noting any hazards that have been identified, along with recommendations for suitable control measures. A plan is also provided, identifying priority actions recommended to reduce the risk associated with the identified hazards.

 

Why Organise a Workplace Inspection Risk Assessment?

Is your workplace as safe as it could be? It can be a challenge for an organisation to internally assess their operations and workplaces in an objective and thorough manner. Without an expert, independent, and objective assessment, an organisation may never realise its full potential for improving safety. Konekt professionals have experience conducting inspections that cover a broad range of workplaces and associated environments, as well as undertaking specific risk assessments for high risk areas (such as; slips, trips and falls, ergonomics, manual handling, traffic management).
