Health & Safety – is your company compliant?

As a business owner, are you confident that your company will pass a Department of Labour health & safety inspection? Making your work environment safe is about more than just providing fire extinguishers and first aid kits. It’s about being aware of risk areas … putting safety procedures in place … and making sure that staff are properly trained in the use of all equipment and machinery. Whether your business environment is relatively low risk – e.g. offices or a retail store – or carries the higher risks associated with manufacturing, logistics or construction, Hesscon will provide you with everything you need to meet the legal requirements of the OHS Act. But, more than just ensuring your business is compliant, we’ll help you grow a safety culture in your company, that will protect your staff and customers from accidents and injury.

Hesscon – it’s all about safety

We offer three core services:

  1. Health and Safety consulting;
