How can safety solutions help you?

HIA can help your business implement sound workplace safety practices with its comprehensive package of safety systems, tools and advice.

As an independent safety practitioner, HIA can perform a gap analysis of your safety practices and help your business implement the safety systems it needs.

HIA Safety Management Systems

At HIA we have extensive experience in navigating the complexities of the Work Health and Safety regulations that govern our industry. Our team of experts have developed a comprehensive system designed for residential construction businesses to proactively understand their obligations, comply with regulations, protect people, and avoid unnecessary costs.

The system includes essential policies, procedures, and documents designed to provide guidance on managing risks and implementing appropriate control measures. 

The right tool for the job

What you can achieve by implementing an effective Safety Management System: 

  • Meet your responsibilities under the safety legislation
  • Identify and measure risk and implement appropriate control measures to manage risk.
  • Make informed safety decisions to mitigate risk and increase efficiency.
  • Reduce costs by proactively identifying risks before they result in an incident or major accident.

We help businesses by providing Trade Contractor and Residential Builder Safety Management Systems. Each of these systems can be scaled to suit the size and complexity of your business. Adopting a system fit for your business will enable you to achieve the safety outcomes appropriate for the activities undertaken in your business. 

To ensure your staff, workers and subcontractors can understand and use the system components appropriately, HIA offers full training upon implementation of your new Safety Management System as well as ongoing support throughout the lifecycle of your business. 

Comprising over 100 documents, the Builder Safety Management System includes:
