Cost Recovery
Offset costs with Cost Recovery through revenue generated from users through booking or inspection systems. This approach allows Silkea to not only ensure compliance with OHS regulations but also create a sustainable financial model for OHS implementation.

In addition to generating revenue, implementing a Health and Safety Management System (HSMS) offers several other benefits:

1. Decreases Workload and Hours, Increases Productivity: An efficient HSMS streamlines processes, reduces manual tasks, and improves productivity, enabling employees to focus on core responsibilities.

2. Easy Scheduling and Management: A comprehensive HSMS provides tools for easy scheduling, tracking, and management of inspections, trainings, and other safety-related activities.

3. Holds People Accountable: With an HSMS in place, accountability becomes a central part of the safety culture. Individuals and teams are held responsible for their actions, leading to improved compliance and adherence to safety protocols.

4. Decreases Legal Liability: By proactively implementing an HSMS, Silkea reduces the risk of non-compliance with OHS regulations. This, in turn, helps mitigate potential legal liability and associated penalties.

It is important to note that fines for OHS violations can be significant. For a first offence under the OHS Act (Section 74(1)), fines can reach up to $500,000 and/or up to 6 months in prison per violation. Continuing the offence may result in additional fines of up to $30,000 per day.

For second or subsequent offences, fines can be as high as $1,000,000 and/or up to 12 months in prison per violation. Continued offences may also lead to fines of up to $60,000 per day. Additionally, all fines are subject to a 20% Victim Surcharge.

Implementing a robust HSMS not only mitigates the risk of fines and legal consequences but also fosters a safer work environment, protects employee well-being, and promotes a culture of compliance and accountability.

By engaging Silkea for OHS compliance software and leveraging the benefits of an HSMS, you can proactively address safety requirements, reduce legal liabilities, and enhance overall operational efficiency.
