Online kit makes safety simple for small businesses

The digital version of SafeWork NSW’s popular Easy to do WHS Toolkit has been launched.

SafeWork NSW launched the digital version after small businesses across the state showed they embraced the support in improving health and safety in their workplace.

SafeWork NSW Executive Director Specialist Services, Andrew Gavrielatos, said the hard copy of the Easy to Do Work Health and Safety toolkit has been downloaded more than 9,500 times and more than 5,600 hard copies handed out since October 2018.

“The toolkit is an essential small-business tool, enabling operators to improve their awareness, knowledge, and capacity to manage health and safety in their workplace, Mr. Gavrielatos said.

“This digital version is a real benefit to the state’s 700,000 small businesses as it provides an online self-assessment tool with tailored advice, information and practical templates.

“A lot of small businesses don’t always feel they have the time, resources or expertise when it comes to managing workplace health and safety – this digital kit makes it easier.

“The kit helps operators fulfill their obligations in putting together a Return to Work policy, as well as covering topics like reporting of incidents and making the workplace safer

“A safe working environment means designing and maintaining your workplace to minimise physical and mental health risks – and this toolkit helps you identify what those risks are,” Mr. Gavrielatos said.
