Occupational Safety and Health Audit

Issue

A Board Member of Wanslea identified that whilst Wanslea was very focused on their client's needs they had little in the way of procedures focussing on their own employees and volunteers.

Solution

Ringshaw Consulting undertook a comprehensive safety audit to determine how well Wanslea was meeting it's occupational safety and health legislative responsibilities.

This audit required Neil Ringshaw to provide information to Wanslea personnel on the scope of the audit, as well as eliciting all relevant material pertinent to the audit. He had to learn about a different industry and ensure the staff and other personnel were comfortable and well informed about the audit process.

On completion of the audit a comprehensive strategy to address the outcomes of the audit was prepared, presented to and accepted by the board.

The recommendations were implemented by Wanslea over the following 6 months.

Ringshaw Consulting have since clarified and assisted with any Occupational Safety and Health issues that have been raised as well as offering lateral, cost effective solutions to Wanslea's information and training needs.

Neil has provided ongoing consultation and informal training to management and staff relating to occupational safety and health matters.

These services were provided at no cost to Wanslea Family Services.
