Gallagher Workplace Risk

A well established and functioning health and safety management system (SMS) can provide a structured and systematic approach to successfully identifying, managing and controlling their health and safety risks. A documented SMS can be good practice and a well-functioning system is proven to manage and reduce health and safety risks in the work environment. Independent audits of systems, processes and procedures provide Board members, Directors and Senior Managers of organisations with an independent overview of their Work, Health and Safety (WHS) systems.
