Outsourced Safety Services

Do you need an innovative and contemporary thinking safety expert on your team?

Overview

Let Us Take the Stress Out of Managing Safety and Risk

There are many reasons an organisation may wish to ‘outsource’ or supplement its existing safety resources. These can include:

  1. Not commercially viable to employ a safety expert into a full-time role;
  2. Trained safety resources leave the business and loss of continuity  or business intellectual property/knowledge;
  3. Temporary leave of absence of a key safety resource within your business;
  4. Temporary or longer term growth in your business and the need for additional strategic or operational support during this period;
  5. Good operational safety resources in the business, however you require some strategic support to coach/mentor and guide the strategy;
  6. Recent injuries and/or prosecution has highlighted to need for significant investment into ‘getting safety back on track’
  7. Many more reasons including mitigation or optimisation of legal, financial, reputational and/or cultural business drivers.

 

Gallagher Workplace Risk is your Safety Partner Solution

Gallagher Workplace Risk has developed a tiered program of outsourced support that caters for small business right through to multinational businesses. Our outsourced program includes access and use of online safety management system Risk360 – powered by Smartsheets. Together with Risk360, we take every outsourced safety partner engagement through a process of:

  1. ‘Discovery’: we take the time to understand your business, we assign you a dedicated safety consultant and visit your workplace to ensure key risks/needs are captured;
  2. ‘Co-Design & Guidance’: any existing forms and tools that are in active use are reviewed and built into Risk360° as digitised forms (i.e. existing processes in your business can be digitised rather than force you to conform to any one way), workflows and notifications/alerts are configured in accordance with your business needs. The safety planner is populated so that you never miss a future compliance event or requirement. Hazard/Incident reporting, workplace inspection, contractor management and actions modules are all configured to your needs.
  3. ‘Oversight & Support’: we provide you with flexible options of support that can include as little as just being available should their be a query related to safety, workers compensation or injury management, right through to regular monthly attendance either in your workplace or support being undertaken remotely.

Gallagher’s experience demonstrates that our Consultants become part of your workforce and feel like part of your Team.  This provides your workers with knowledge that they are technically supported and your Management Teams with the confidence that there are internal resources to provide adequate guidance and support in meeting safety obligations.
