Australia-first app combats workplace safety compliance minefield
Australia’s first workplace safety mobile application will help businesses be compliant with Work Health & Safety legislation, says Director of Systems on a Shoestring, Emma Bentton.
The SOAS Simple Safety application is the only step-by-step system in Australia to help SMEs, such as carpenters, hairdressers and café owners, to meet Work Health and Safety compliance needs while on the go.
According to Ms Bentton, business owners have struggled to stay on top of changes to the Work Health & Safety Act, regulations and codes of practice, which equate to more than 2000 pages, potentially placing their staff and their business at risk.
’Each day in Australia, an average of 360 workers are injured at work. Instead of focusing on actual workplace safety, many business owners are concentrating on meeting the red-tape regulatory requirements.’
