Providing advice to clients on their legislative obligations is a core activity for Kirwan & Associates.  We advise clients on the minimum level of performance required within their workplaces to meet these obligations and how this level of performance can be achieved and surpassed.

The legislative obligations for an organisation now encompass the following areas:

  • Codes of Practice;
  • Australian Standards;
  • Industry Codes of Practice; and,
  • Regulations,

which creates a complex web of information that needs to be analysed and collated so proper advice can be given.

With extensive knowledge of each of these areas and vast experience in providing such advice, Kirwan & Associates should be your organisation's first step in ensuring legislative compliance.

 

Kirwan & Associates believes that Safety Management Systems are integral to a 'Best Practice' approach to Workplace Safety for any organisation.  This has been an original component of our services provided for more than 35 years.

Occupational Hazard Management is a technique which has been developed by John Kirwan to enable organisations to implement a systems based approach in managing their exposure in relation to Workplace Safety concerns.

Our Occupational Hazard Management Program has a proven track record across a wide spread of Industry Sectors over its 35 year history.  A key feature of this program is the fact that it can integrate into both Environmental & Quality Assurance to address the increasing trend towards an Integrated Approach in these areas.
