A workplace health and safety management system is a set of policies, procedures and plans that systematically manages health and safety at work with the aim of minimising the risk of injury and illness from workplace operations. Altius Group provides risk analysis and implementation plans to enhance existing systems or to assist in the development of a WHS management system from the beginning.
Our safety systems ensure legislative compliance and provide a safer working environment for employees. The system may be paper-based or in the form of compliance management software, such as AltiusWHS.
We work with businesses large and small, across all industries, to support the development and/or continual improvement of their safety management system. Our services are scalable to suit your needs.
