RiskTeq integrates risk management, safety and WHS compliance to ensure workplace activities are completed safely and within a controlled risk environment.
The new harmonised workplace health and safety laws took effect in many states on January 1, 2012, with all states and territories expected to be signed-up in the near future.
The new harmonised Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) legislation includes strict penalties for WHS breaches, including hefty fines and even the prospect of goal time.
A fragmented WHS system could be exposing you and your organisation to major risk and liability.
In our experience, many companies haven’t fully understood what the recent changes to WHS law mean for managing and engaging with contractors, and they are opening themselves up to considerable risk.
What happens when your workforce does not follow the plans laid out for them? If there’s an accident, are you responsible? Are you liable?
A lot of time and money can go into designing and implementing the right WHS systems for your organisation. But WHS compliance isn’t a purely technical matter.
If you're an existing RiskTeq user you'll be pleased to hear that numerous features have been enhanced for the Version 2.6 software release.

This infographic, which you can share, print out, and post around your workplace, is a reminder of just what’s at stake.
