35 years ago Occupational Safety and Health Associates – or OSHA Aust – was launched by a small team with a passion for providing the highest quality of health and safety training and consulting. Over the years OSHA has expanded and gained immense experience across a range of industry sectors.
However, the intrinsic passion for the highest quality of health and safety remains constant.
Rather than just do policies and procedures, we put PEOPLE back into work (& occupational) health and safety – WHS or OHS. And ‘work’ is something we DO, not just a place we go.
Our clients from across Australia and around the world tell us that they choose OSHA because of the breadth of our experience and our practical and effective approach. OSHA’s unique expertise lies in using health and safety as the ‘window to your organisation’. By working with your people – from the top to the bottom – about their perceived health and safety issues we are able to pinpoint other opportunities to improve the way the whole organisation functions. We believe health and safety concerns often indicate other more fundamental issues, so we explore the opportunities to add value to the whole organisation – not just through controlling hazards and risks to peoples’ health, safety and well-being – but through overall organisational health, productivity and morale.
Global clients that benefit from OSHA’s practical and realistic approach, include DuPont, ExxonMobil, Nufarm, Motorola, Aust Dept of Defence, Thales (Aust Defence Industries), FM Global, Goulburn-Murray Water, Fluor, Kodak, Boral, Dept of Justice (Vic), Esso, BP, National Rail Corporation, Mercer (Aust), Telstra, Thiess, Sumitomo (ABA), GSK, CSIRO.
OSHA is committed and passionate about helping people at all levels in an organisation, not only improve the standards of their working conditions, but moreover making their organisation more ‘fun’ to be part of.
