The consulting service uses a Risk Management Framework Self-Assessment Tool (RMFSAT). icare tmf-member agencies can engage SRS to facilitate a Risk Management Performance Review. Following the review, SRS presents a written report addressing the agency’s risk profile, maturity and opportunities for improvement to key decision-makers.
For further information on the RMFSAT please contact Bronwen McFarland on 02 8121 1233.
Self Assessment Tool: Work Health and Safety Management
SRS provides icare tmf member agencies access to safety performance improvements through consulting services and support using a WHS Self-Assessment Tool (WHSSAT). The WHSSAT is a WHS Management System maturity assessment tool based on WorkCover’s OHS&IM Improvement Standards, Australian Standard 4801 and current NSW WHS legislation. It has 12 standards, each one representing a fundamental component of an effective safety management system. By completing the WHSSAT as a self assessment or under the guidance of SRS through a facilitated assessment, agencies can learn the maturity of their safety systems against these standards.
