No matter your line of work, the size of your workforce or the location of your place of business, Workplace Healthy and Safety (WH&S) is one factor that is paramount to the protection of your most valuable asset: your team.
Often times WH&S considerations can be put on the back burner, updates to WH&S policies can fall to the wayside and the seriousness of possible hazards can be taken too lightly.
And as whole, while the attention to vital WH&S policies and procedures continues to make leaps and bounds with every decade that passes, it is the day to day, month to month and year to year heedfulness within each individual business that keeps staff safe and reminds us to never become complacent.
Viridis Consultants takes the well-being of our staff and those affected by our operations very seriously and as part of our Workplace Health and Safety Policy we have a commitment to regularly review our policy and report outcomes.
In the year 2018, Viridis is please to report the following outcomes.
