Rest Easy with RiskEasy

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Sydney, Australia, May 19, 2004.
 


 

Australian workplace safety legislation imposes strong penalties on corporations that fail to provide a safe workplace for their employees, and on principal contractors who don't ensure their subcontractors manage their safety risks effectively. For example, the Electrical Safety Act 2002 in Queensland has a maximum penalty of $375,000 or 3 years jail for corporations and people not meeting their obligations under the Act.

INCOM, in collaboration with Cambourne10 has recently released 'RiskEasy', a bundled package that combines comprehensive Risk Management tools and a library of common workplace hazards in easy to understand everyday language.  The library of risks comes complete with practical controls that will help reduce your employees and subcontractors exposure to harm.

Stephen Boorer, the Managing Director of Cambourne10 said "The RiskEasy package creates a high performance, risk management culture because it's based on true collaboration between management and workers".  RiskEasy allows principal contractors to have a clear understanding of how their subcontractors are managing safety risks. This is not just about ticking boxes; it's about "doing the right thing".

Workgroups enter their risks into a Microsoft Excel RiskPlan.  Subcontractors import those risks into RiskEasy, evaluate, rank and manage those risks, and e-mail them to the principal contractor.  RiskEasy allows a central risk management group or principal contractor to better understand and oversight all risks.

RiskEasy builds collaboration between each level of the workforce, maximising the effectiveness of risk management activities.  This better understanding minimises "mistaken beliefs" between groups, thus allowing corporations to better discharge their obligations under Australian law.

RiskEasy is being used in health services, emergency services planning, police service, local government, federal government, missile engineering, aerospace, manufacturing, mining, insurance, financial, fire protection, applied research and by audit, project and IT departments.

Any workplace dealing in hazardous materials, building or construction, needs to think about implementing a risk management database to help reduce risks, meet regulatory compliance, and provide formal documentary proof they are addressing potential risks.  Incom provides a free demonstration system via their web site at www.incom.com.au
