It is the dual responsibility of both you, as an employer, and your staff to maintain a safe, healthy workplace. As a business owner you are obligated to create a safe environment for your team. The health and safety of all our employees is Workplace Central’s highest priority. We partner with workplaces, supplying them with the appropriate tools and processes to ensure the ongoing safety of their workers.

Too many accidents involving machinery happen in Australian workplaces. These accidents could have been prevented by properly maintaining items of plant and tools.

Football star, Shane Webcke, lost his father in a tragic machinery incident, which Shane believes could have been avoided. Maintaining equipment may seem like a hassle, but it will save the lives of colleagues, customers and yourself. Failing to maintain workplace equipment will likely result in serious injury or even death.

Workplace Central supports businesses with the implementation of Workers’ Compensation Insurance. However, if you or an employee is injured, no amount of money will compensate for the loss of a loved one. So make sure you protect yourself and the people who work for you. If an incident has occurred and an employee has been injured, Workplace Central facilitate rehabilitation with a designated coordinator to help them get back to work as soon as possible.

New employees are at higher risk of hurting themselves, than long-term workers. Workplace Central conducts a General Health and Safety Induction for new staff, to proactively minimise this danger. Reviews of onsite health and safety systems are performed annually, to make sure your workplace continues to meet updated safety regulations. Workplace Central also surveys staff regularly, on health and safety issues, to ensure staff keep safety front of mind.
