One-day Site Inspection and Report

Using a tailored assessment tool, this looks at how your business is complying with its obligations under WHS legislation. The Report identifies deficiencies and provides suggestions and recommendations to correct those shortcomings.

COST – $935

Work Health & Safety (WHS) Gap Analysis

Generally, 4 days’ duration. One day is spent conducting an off-site desktop review of the businesses safety documentation. This is followed by one day on-site, which includes an interview using a Gap Analysis questionnaire specifically designed for the purpose, followed by a site inspection. You will then receive a report identifying all the areas of WHS legislation that applies to your operation together with an assessment of your current compliance position and suggestions for improvement.

COST – $ 3,740

Sub Contractor System Development

Need to have a Safety Management System approved before you can work on a site? Approval company being a total pain? We come to you, review what you have got from the approval company, work out what you need and put together a system to get you the approval you need. We quote 5 days work and if you still get knocked back, we give you another 2 days for free. If you need us to develop Project Specific Plans later, we can do that too

PROJECT SPECIFIC PLANS – $1,100

Incident Investigation

New Zealand Safety System Development

The introduction of the Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA) and associated Regulations recently in will dramatically change the way safety management is handled throughout New Zealand. This legislation is modelled on, and is heavily influenced by, the Australian WHS Act and Regulation. And this is where the experience of the WHS Act HELP Team comes into its own. All our members have been directly involved in helping businesses, small and large, to develop WHS compliant systems and processes from the very beginning of those laws commencement in Australia in 2012.

In fact, that is exactly how WHS Act HELP got its name!

You will save significant time (and therefore money) by utilising our experience, expertise and ALREADY PREPARED system documents for your business. Our work in Australia has already exposed us to the requirements of what will eventually be your own obligations as new Regulations are passed there. And yes, we will work with you to ensure the system covers your Kiwi obligations and is not just some Aussie template.

COST – as with the previous Incident Investigation example, these Projects can extend over a period of time. And for that reason, we charge the sliding scale mentioned there as well. All prices are in Australian dollars. You may also like to consider joining up with other businesses near you. This helps spread the costs and the time (thus bringing in the long-term rate reduction).

A Typical Audit or Gap Analysis

  • We get you to send us your existing system so we can do what’s called a DESKTOP AUDIT to make sure your system, documents, procedures and processes match up to what is required under existing WHS obligations
  • We arrive at your workplace at a prearranged time and date
  • We ask you a predetermined set of questions to identify the areas of the WHS Act and Regulation that applies specifically to you (a lot of sections apply to every business but there are also many sections and clauses that do not apply to your operation)
  • Once we have this information we know what you should have and the Gap Analysis applicable specifically for your business really starts

In about 5 days, you will receive;

  • A report that identifies the sections of the WHS Act and Regulation that applies to you. Any sections that don’t apply to your business will have been removed to make the report easier to follow
  • Each section will be color coded to show you exactly where you stand (RED for gaps in your system, BLUE where we think you can improve and GREEN where you are covering off on the area) – straight away you will see the things that need some work
  • Any gaps or areas that need improvement have an explanation of why something needs to be done
  • Included with the report is an assessment of the documents sent through for the Desktop Audit where we believe some improvement is possible
  • The report includes an Action Plan giving recommendations on how you can move your system towards legal compliance

In addition to the report, we will provide supporting documents (in editable WORD or EXCEL format) to help you move forward
