Occupational Health and Safety (or, if you’d prefer, WHS--Workplace Health and Safety) are the regulations, laws and compliance codes that detail the responsibility of workers and employers to ensure safety is maintained at work.
Each business or industry will have its own risk to identify.
The OHS overview for a construction site will be different from that of a hospital.
A pharmacy will have different risks than a school.
OHS is part of an employer's duty of care, and it’s obviously super important.
We all deserve to get home safely.
But what's the best way to make sure your team know how to stay safe?
Making your physical work environment safe is your business.
Helping with the information and instruction, and getting the message across—well, that’s ours.
It’s not enough to just have OHS guidelines, they have to be clear and easily understood by everyone, regardless of age, background, or language.
And that’s where we can help.
The beauty of a sketch video is that we can take complex or dry information and make it easily understood, in a language and style that your employers will respond to. We can craft words and pictures for you that will help create a safer workplace.
Whether it's for an induction process, or part of regular ongoing training.
Perhaps you need to alert your workers about new legislation that affects your industry, or there’s been an accident and you want to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
You need to make sure that this important OHS information is understood and absorbed.
Draw everyone a clear picture. Sketch it out.
Talk to us. We'd love to help.
