Work, health and safety

From traditional to transformative

Deloitte’s holistic approach means we create the right level of oversight and awareness of the true performance of organisational work health and safety. We can help your organisation meet its work health and safety responsibilities, protect your people and profits, and create sustainable, long-term improvements in safety performance.

Deloitte’s Safety specialists in our Risk Advisory practice help you to develop a safety strategy that will improve your business outcomes.

In safety, the strategy of an organisation is mostly about reducing incidents. How do we do this? Our approach relies on setting intent, developing a compelling ‘why’ safety message and creating a story that includes everyone in your organisation.

We also provide coaching to promote the types of behaviour that help your organisation influence safety outcomes.

Safety strategy and Executive coaching

We have come to realise that safety outcomes are often influenced by wider organisational issues that lead to workplace health incidents and affect overall efficiency and productivity.

We offer a breakthrough approach that helps your organisation identify and resolve the business issues that put workers at risk. Rather than implement generic safety-specific measures, Deloitte will help you develop a tailored program to transform operations from within, enhance safety and improve business.

Safety change through 45° – The Business of SafetyTM

Our team provides interactive and innovative training for business leaders and their teams, led by former New South Wales work cover prosecutors. A simulated mock court prosecution will challenge your thinking, push attendees out of their comfort zone, galvanise actions and demonstrate safety management responsibility in a fun and high-impact way.

The objective of the mock court is to provoke people to re-evaluate the priority of safety. It also aims to improve your employees’ understanding of their personal responsibilities in maintaining your organisation’s safety system.


Mock Courts – be the jury

Deloitte recognises that a critical aspect of a safety management system is identifying, assessing and controlling hazards and risks. Our safety risk profiling methodology can help your organisation develop a better understanding of risk exposure – from the top down as well as from the bottom up.

Using risk management tools and information on operational risks, we work with you to determine the risk profile of your organisation. We also develop practice monitoring and reporting mechanisms to ensure that your executives and board understand the full risk landscape for safety, current risks, emerging risks and anticipated risks.

Safety risk profiling

Deloitte can analyse your safety management systems, processes and culture using industry standards and safety objectives; creating a business case for improvement and a program for change.

We offer you internal audits, compliance audits and site inspections. We can also  conduct domestic and international standard gap analyses, assess quality management systems, and design and implement policies and procedures.

Safety assessment and inspections

Deloitte’s team of safety professionals have significant experience helping organisations work through safety problems, overhaul management systems and understand the risk profile of an organisation. 

As organisations focus on understanding and controlling hazards, they often don’t maintain an underlying management system due to perceptions that the system is out of date or doesn’t comply with current standards. This is a risk in itself.
