At SGC Safety it’s our belief that health and safety consulting is about listening to you – the client – and evaluating the options that work for your organisation, not just a pre-packaged solution. Our consulting staff have a wide background in numerous areas such as policy and procedure development, occupational hygiene, emergency response, emergency management, injury rehabilitation and workplace well-being.
PPE Fit Testing
We provide Quantitative Fit testing of both respirators and ear protection, which is becoming increasingly mandatory across work sites and industries throughout Australia. Providing workers with PPE without ensuring they have correct protection could leave employers open to future litigation, and Australian standards now call for a Respiratory Protection Program (of which Fit testing is an important part).
Portable Fire Equipment Inspections
Our qualified technicians will inspect all your portable fire equipment including extinguishers, blankets and fire hoses to the relevant Australian Standard. SGC Safety fire safety inspectors shall appropriately tag your equipment and provide you with a “Fire Equipment Register”. SGC Safety can also offer replacement equipment as required.
Working at Heights Equipment Inspections
Australian Standards state that periodic inspections on height safety equipment must be carried out by a height safety equipment inspector. SGC Safety height safety inspectors shall appropriately tag your equipment and provide you with a “Heights Safety Register”. Any equipment found to be non-compliant, will be disposed of in consultation.
Drug and Alcohol Testing
Many workplaces are now adopting strict drug and alcohol policies to ensure maximum safety in the workplace. SGC Safety offers on-site and confidential Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing services, as well as aiding clients in generating customised policy procedures. We can also help tailor new testing policies and procedures for your own workplace.
Under Australian legislation Audiometric Testing must be provided to workers within 3 months of employment and at least every two years thereafter if frequently exposed to noise above the exposure standard. SGC Safety provides comfortable, safe and painless Audiology Testing either at our offices or your own workplace. Contact us for further details.
