4. Safe Workplace Management System

As a business operator, the WHS Act 2011 places significant obligations on you to demonstrate active participation of Workplace, Health and Safety prevention. Failure to do so can attract fines of up to $3 million per breach of a corporation, $600,000 per breach for an officer, $300,000 per breach for an individual and up to five years' imprisonment.

Now imagine a complete online Safe Workplace Management System that creates a Workplace Health and Safety plan tailored to your business within minutes of signing up. It keeps you informed of your obligations, safeguarding against costly breaches. It’s accessible anytime via any internet enabled device. And it only costs $275 per annum (including GST).
