These assessments are structured to identify existing hazards with the potential to cause accidents/incidents, injury, illness, environmental impact or financial loss. Our inspection process can be customised to suit the requirements of your property and specific workplace hazards. We continue to work across a range of industries including energy, retail, food processing, agriculture, construction, manufacturing and government.

What is a Safety Consultant?
A Safety Consultant is a professional qualified in the matters of health and safety in the workplace who helps businesses in ensuring they are compliant and follow the best practices in this area.

Each one of our Safety Consultants have maintained at least Certified OHS Professional certification with the Australian Institute of Health and Safety and Exemplar Global as Lead Auditors across a range of safety topics including Hazardous Chemicals and Safety Management Systems.

What does a Safety Consultant do?
Professional Safety Consultants are not restrained by the business direction placed on Safety persons in general business but are able to expand their knowledge to boarder encompass specialised knowledge and provide expert advice on what a business can do to improve the overall health and safety of their workplaces. Our Consultants have also worked in the ‘real world’ in supervisory and management positions and )more than likely) experienced what you are going through.
Who needs Safety Consulting Services?
Any organisation can become stagnant in thinking or alternatively attempt new and exciting strategies. Before stepping off on these paths, having a person who has experience in these matters can often assist and be of immediate benefit to any business.

Sometimes it is about having another neutral person to bounce ideas off of to gauge the path forward.

What are the benefits of outsourcing WHS Services?
Outsourcing to professional workplace health and safety consultants, reduces your costs of maintaining specialised in-house staff qualified in WHS matters. Some of the key benefits to you as a business owner, are:

– Better safety and compliance – as a professional consulting firm we only employ consultants with proven track records. We do NOT pass our work on to other consultants so as to ensure we keep our reputation with our clients.
– Less stress – Consequently, having access to better advice, means you do not have to worry about health, safety and compliance matters as much, by comparison.
– Cost reduction – There are a number of overheads involved in maintaining in-house staff, especially in positions that are not always constantly required in your business. Outsourcing allows you to avoid those costs, by giving you access to professional consultants only when you need their help.

Why choose DRA Safety for your Safety Consulting needs?
DRA Safety has been in business for almost 30 years with a strong client base.

Over time some clients have chosen to leave for a lower price only to return due to the service and quality out put we provide.

We can assist with an initial workplace audit?
We use a range of audit tools considering the level of compliance already at an organisation. We complete the job site audit to identify and assess the health and safety matters and concerns regarding several key areas of said site (where and as applicable):

• Health and Safety Policy
• Responsibility and Accountability Statements
• Sub-Contractors and Purchasing Controls
• Health and Safety Consultation
• Risk Management
• Provision of Information
• Staff Training
• Reporting and Investigation
• Emergency Planning
• Fire Evacuation Plan
• Emergency Equipment
• Traumatic Incident Response
• Workplace Specific Issues (as relevant)
• Electrical Equipment
• Hazardous Chemicals
• Plant
• Noise
• Vehicles
• First Aid Facilities and Communicable Diseases
• Personal Protective Equipment
• Work at Height
• Ergonomic / Manual Handling

Once a suitable score is attained we generally move organisations to the National Self-Insurer OHS Audit Tool ordinarily used for organisations across Australia that self insure for workers compensation.

– The documentation of WHS processes, procedures, and training programs
