our OHS improvement plan

When you work for Randstad or on any of our client's sites, our ambition is to create the foundation of a safety culture so that you can always feel confident in your workplace well being. We foster open and collaborative partnerships with our clients, and encourage a strong internal process of continuous improvement and knowledge development. We are focused on working together with our clients and employees to promote an environment of safety best practice.

key components

  • Client feedback

    our specialist recruitment consultants are in constant contact with our clients to provide ongoing consultation, feedback and reporting in relation to the safety of our temporary workforce. We offer comprehensive reporting systems to support our service delivery with the key focus of ensuring your workplace is as safe as reasonably practicable.

  • OH&S & injury management surveys

    as part of our commitment to building a strong internal and external safety culture, we conduct regular OH&S & injury management surveys. With a focus on collecting feedback, these surveys assist with identifying areas for ongoing improvement.

  • Safety consultation groups

    we are committed to open and transparent communication of health and safety issues and have created expert safety consultation groups as a formal process for the dissemination of data and to discuss all matters relevant to employee safety, health, welfare and injury management by developing a mutually co-operative consultative environment across the organisation.

  • Quarterly senior management reviews

    we have a vested commitment in setting industry best practice OH&S and injury management standards. On a quarterly basis all relevant members of our senior management team come together to assess OHS improvement and performance against our strategic plan, review corrective action measures and discuss plans for ongoing continuous improvement.

  • Self-insurance steering committee

    as the first labour hire company in Australia to achieve self-insurance status in South Australia, we have created a formal committee to support the development of our self-insurance status across our South Australian operations.

As a Randstad contractor, your safety always comes first - which is why we make it our priority to eliminate or minimise the effect of all hazards in the workplace, as far as reasonably practicable.

For this reason, many of our formal procedures are aimed at ensuring we can anticipate your safety needs, focus on the prevention of injury and manage the environment of our temporary employees.

As part of our overall OH&S strategy, we provide job safety analysis for our clients, comprehensive safety inductions & ongoing risk assessment.

our OHS services

  • Workplace safety assessments

    To protect the safety and wellbeing of our temporary employees, Randstad has a legislative obligation and duty of care to assess every client’s workplace and safety environment. Conducted onsite by our expert & qualified OH&S advisors, our thorough job safety analysis procedure ensures all identified hazards have the appropriate control measures implemented to reduce the risk of injury or illness. Depending on the risk rating of a client site, these assessments are conducted every 12 months to 3 years to ensure the ongoing protection of our temporary workforce.

  • Risk assessment

    Following every workplace safety assessment, we provide our clients with a detailed summary report. This gives us the capability to identify risks, provide recommendations, and set a framework and timeframe for appropriate consultation, ongoing monitoring and advice.Many of our clients view this procedure as highly beneficial, allowing for the continuous improvement & safety of your workplace environment.

  • Temporary employee safety induction

    All Randstad temporary employees are provided with a comprehensive safety induction appropriate to their area of work. In addition to our standard induction, prior to any placement we identify any areas where our temporary employees may require additional need for training to our clients. For areas of high volume supply, our OH&S and account management team will work in collaboration with our clients to design and implement site-specific inductions, customised to the individual safety requirements of your business.

  • Internal safety talks

    To promote our safety culture, and increase the Occupational Health and Safety and Injury Management skills and knowledge of our branch managers and consultants, we hold regular internal safety talks as a training and development tool.
