3 Ways Every Company Can Protect Itself From Health & Safety Compliance Risks

Having workers who are unfit for work can lead to serious health and legal risks for you as an employer, leading to fines and lawsuits. Don’t let this happen to you.

Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) is important to every industry. That assertion is not up for debate. It is a fact! However, it is also one of the top challenges facing businesses today.


OHS standards are created to help protect workers from being physically, mentally, or emotionally injured while on the job. Compliance with these standards is required by law in most countries and can cost any business heftily if they are found defaulting.


Nowadays, the rise in the number of workplace injuries leading to compensation claims and fines has prompted more industry standards, like the Safety Critical Worker (SCW) classification, to ensure employers monitor the physical and mental health of their staff.

HSE regulators are cracking down on companies that don’t ensure their workers are fit for work each day. By not complying with such standards, businesses are risking costly fines and dangerous lawsuits which can negatively impact their brand image.


Achieving Health and Safety compliance is important but can be challenging and time-consuming. This often leaves business owners wondering how they can guarantee that their employees are safe and healthy while meeting legal obligations, while also maintaining a productive workforce and a profitable business.


That can be quite daunting.

Not only are occupational health and safety risks a burden to companies, but they are also extremely costly in terms of revenue and productivity. This is not something you want to deal with.

These 3 Ways Can Help You Efficiently Maintain HSE Compliance

Register, Identify & Verify

Adopting these capabilities can place you on the path to compliance with Fit For Work regulatory standards, protect your business and improve workplace safety and productivity.


Businesses will find it easier to comply with OHS regulations by utilizing automation platforms to digitally capture (register) workers’ and maintain their occupational health records; automatically carry out biometric verification using facial recognition to prove (identify & verify) that a worker is who they say they are — all without losing focus on profit-generating activities.

Digitize Occupational Health Passports

These digital passports can be easily accessed via a worker’s mobile or wearable devices. Health records can be automatically updated and instantly available to employers in real-time after a worker’s health assessment or surveillance is completed.


By digitizing health records, employers will no longer need to deal with paper health documents that often get lost, faded or damaged; send multiple email trails, attach PDFs, or maintain spreadsheets of workers’ health records.

Automate Compliance

Businesses have multiple regulations governing their activities. It can be hard to get a clear picture of what the best practice is or where to start with compliance.


By leveraging industry-tailored digital platforms built with regulations in mind, businesses can ensure that they are automatically complying with HSE standards without spending time and resources on ineffective risk management processes.
