All Australian businesses have the important responsibility to ensure they are looking after the health and safety of their employees as per the regulations and policies set by Safework Australia.
This workplace health and safety (WHS) also known as Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), involves the assessment and mitigation of risks. These must be documented policies which are easily accessible to all employees with a system in place to record any incidents as they happen. Therefore having a good document management system in place is important to ensure these requirements are met.
