Workplace Health & Safety

KPMG helps clients identify and understand the Workplace Health & Safety impacts affecting businesses.

KPMG works with clients to identify and understand workplace health and safety impacts.

Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) is a key risk organisations face today and plays an important role in managing the reputation of the organisation, as well as providing a safe work environment.

Health and safety governance is as important as any other aspect of governance. It is core to an organisation’s overall risk management function and a key responsibility of directors.

Organisations are seeking to develop a strong WHS culture and to embed an effective health and safety management system. This enables managers and workers to demonstrate accountability, which can result in significant benefits for an organisation.

Failure to effectively manage health and safety risk and performance has both a human and business cost, and as such should receive the same priority by directors as all other risks. There is a business imperative to provide a safe work environment, but there is also a moral obligation.
