OHS Strategic Planning

OHS strategic planningOHS Strategic Planning provides a planned, documented and quantifiable approach for the comprehensive and systematic management of OHS business planning and continuous improvement.

RiskPro’s strategic model encompasses the areas of leadership, behaviour, incident prevention, management and OHS data analysis and supporting risk management processes.

Our planning process is linked to operational aspects of the company which are complimented with various management tools. The strategic planning process can be implemented on a Project by Project or day to day organisational basis.

OHS Strategic Planning provides the architecture to embed a consistent methodology of managing OHS that includes the integration of deliberate practices, processes and linkages, while remaining sufficiently flexible and responsive to meet changing demands and environments.

The advantages of adopting the OHS strategic planning process include:

Increased Leadership Commitment >>>

Increased leadership committment and drive through the implementation of a comprehensive Leadership Commitment Programme (LCP) with automated reporting metrics;

Improved Behaviour >>>

Improved behavioral base and participation of the work force through the development and implementation of a Behavioural Based Safety (BBS) programme with the provision of Behavioural Observation tools;

Improved Risk Identification >>>

The process aims to increase awareness of the Company's risk profile through assessment and the implementation of robust risk management processes and tools (risk management database, incident database, reporting database);

Greater Risk Mitigation >>>

Increased understanding of the Company's risk profile enables more informed decision making when determining risk mitigation measuresof risks through a robust risk management process;

Cost Reductions >>>

Cost reductions to WorkCover and the injury management process through greater participation and understanding of the OHS programme; and

Improved Systems & Processes >>>

Robust systems and processes for ongoing management, continual improvement and increased profitability are developed to suit the structure of the business.

Strategic Planning Model
 Step Methodology

1. Mission, Vision & Values

Develop and describe the Company's OHS vision and its interaction with business sustainability, production, profitability and the future wellbeing of management and the workforce.

2. Situational Analysis

Identify the current gaps in structures, behaviours, processes and systems and conduct an OHS Health Check on the current status of the business. OHS data analysis is critical to understanding the historical context for present and emerging issues.
3. Strategic Methodologies Analyse and prioritise the findings from the situational analysis. Further, understand the effects of inadequate structures, behaviours, processes and systems and identify the opportunities associated with change to these elements.
4. Strategic Plan, Documentation & Tools Develop strategic planning documentation and strategic management tools which include the implementation of a Leadership Commitment and Behavioural Observation Programme.
5. Communicate, Implement and Train The strategic plan, processes and initiatives are communicated throughout the Company via interactive sessions. The workforce is given ownership of the programme to ensure the initiatives continued growth.
6. Evaluation & Control The Continual Improvement process is implemented. Aspects of change and development are implemented over a period of time. Bench marks are set and monitored on a regular basis. The effectiveness of the processes are monitored to ensure the strategy maintains its currency and validity within the organisation.
