Konekt is a provider of the free OHS Essentials program supported by WorkSafe (Victoria). Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) and its legislation can be difficult to navigate at times, so this free service funded by the Victorian Government is a great way for small to medium sized businesses to obtain personalised advice from an OHS expert.

By taking part in the program which runs over 9-12 months you can:

  • Receive three consultations of free expert advice to improve the OHS at your workplace
  • Ensure that you are meeting your legal requirements to keep your workplace safe
  • Receive a good understanding of your main problem areas related to OHS, including a documented action plan and resources which you can use to improve the workplace

Although WorkSafe are funding the program, they are not notified of the results of your involvement with Konekt.
