Staff safety and wellbeing is a hot topic in New Zealand.
Ensuring your staff and those onsite make it home at the end of the day is at the top of priority lists. With the various types of safety products needed and the range of brands to choose from, it can be an overwhelming task making a decision.
As a result, just having any equipment in your workplace can seem like enough.
However, without the correct products and training you could be leaving your business open to a range of risks.
The use of inadequate products or training can lead to:
- Misuse of PPE
- Exposure to dangerous situations
- Injury to your staff and those onsite
- Potential LTI incidents.
On top of this, If you are not taking all reasonable measures to ensure the safety of your staff, you will be liable for any incidents that occur. This can lead to prosecution and fines. On top of this your reputation as a safe business could be tarnished with this often being the most difficult issue to restore.
