MANAGING OHS MAKES GOOD BUSINESS SENSE
When it comes to complying with OHS legislation and controlling safety risks within rural regional enterprises,
make no mistake- the biggest risk of all is to do nothing!
OHS risks associated with rural workplaces are not only felt in terms of pain and
suffering, but also relate to increasing threats of litigation and heavy financial loss.
Demonstrating OHS due diligence has never been more important for employers, company
directors and managers. Organisations, no matter what their size simply can’t afford not to address OHS
risks as an integral part of their business management.
In spite of what is commonly seen as an increasing burden and real threat to the long-term viability of rural
industries, the good news is however, with proper guidance and the leading expertise offered by RuralSafe, OHS risks
