Construction work can be dangerous! Due to uncontrolled and non-routine environments, the incident and failures occur frequently, resulting in number offatalities. Daily construction failures on news coverage are now almost the norm.
Employers and construction management need to focused attention on the areas in their respective construction operations, where a massive loss could be detrimental to effective future business operations. It is a dire need to entrust construction compliance to a reputable and competent OHS consultant. In not doing so the employer is faced with severe risks. Massive OHS capital inputs are made on each project without positive OHS growth in the company. On completion of a project OHS is zeroed, leaving the business without any OHS assets. There is no business sense in this approach, a reputable consultant will guide the financial input towards OHS Asset growth, resulting in a business that becomes self-sustainable in the OHS science with the exact needed OHS assets employed.
