Reduce Workplace Risk Now | CS-VUE

New Zealand businesses are twice as deadly as those in Australia.

Even worse – New Zealand businesses are six times more deadly than those in the UK.

Changes to the Health and Safety Act in late 2015 will require attitudes to change. Health & Safety Reforms, iniated off the back of the Pike River Tragedy in 2010 will require Kiwi business owners to either take health & safety seriously, or face jail time.

‘She’ll be right’ will no longer be enough.

Risk & Hazard Management

Risk is multifaceted. In addition to health & safety risks, a business must also juggle environmental and business related risks. Failing to acknowledge and mitigate these risks can have serious consequences in terms of economic performance and professional reputation.

Do you have a workplace risk register?

The fact of the matter is, you can’t manage what you don’t know. Risk registers as part of a risk management plan enable your business to understand the nature of your risks and develop strategies for managing and mitigating risks.

Ignoring risk is no longer an option. The new Health & Safety Reform Act will introduce the concept of a Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU). PCBUs are business entities, rendering business directors responsible for any mishaps. Under the new act PCBUs will be required to ensure as far as is reasonably practicable, the health & safety of workers employed or engaged so that they may not be at risk from work.

Can you afford a $3 million fine?

The new fines are substantial. In the case where a company has put their employee at risk of death or serious injury or illness, the top fine will be $3 million with up to 5 years imprisonment and/or a fine of up to $600,000 for Officers of the PCBU (Company Directors).

It may sound intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. The first step to reducing your risk is to develop and implement a risk management plan. That’s where CS-VUE can help.

CS-VUE’s new Risk Management suite is designed to meet the upcoming legislation, providing tools to identify, minimise, isolate and eliminate risks.

Our easy to use risk register is responsive and accessible from any online location enabling users to manage their risks both from a central office or out in the field.

Incidents & Accidents Management

While you may have mitigated your risk to the nth degree, incidents do happen. When they occur CS-VUE’s incident management tools provide a practical workflow system to report on and manage incidents.

Avoid repeat events. CS-VUE’s Incident Management tools create a clearly auditable record enabling you to review and evaluate previous incidents to ensure that the same mistakes are never repeated.

Are you prepared to tell your employees loved ones that they won’t be coming home?

We’re setting the benchmark…and this software is very much a part of that benchmark. It adds incredible data management because we were talking about legal activities here – potentially illegal activities if you’re not doing your job right.”
