Verus’s knowledge and experience in developing, reviewing and implementing health and safety management systems for self-insurers saw us selected as the consultant on a project to streamline a multinational manufacturing organisation’s OHS management framework.
The framework had been developed 20 years earlier, and the occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS) had become an administrative burden. It was acknowledged the system had become complex and 'bloated', requiring bureaucratic effort by safety resources rather than focusing on the people and solving safety issues.
- Identify opportunities to streamline and improve the efficiency of the OHSMS.
- Structure the updated framework differently, for a better business impact.
- Make better use of existing resources.
