Online self-assessment tool

Available from late-August 2018, the SafePlus Online Self-Assessment Tool will help you identify gaps in your health and safety performance, and provide guidance and advice on how to improve.

The Online Self-Assessment Tool will be free for any business to use. The first version is being designed for small to medium sized businesses, with further development planned to tailor for larger and/or higher risk sector businesses.

The information you enter into the tool is secure, and is only available to the Government in an anonymous and summarised format, maintaining your commercial privacy.

The online tool will help businesses to engage with their employees, contractors, suppliers and others. They will be asked questions about risk management, leadership, and worker engagement. Their anonymous responses are used to create a ‘snapshot’ of health and safety performance perceptions and areas for improvement, which is presented in a report for the business to improve their health and safety performance.

Businesses will be able to reuse the online tool to measure their performance over time. The online tool can also be used to target different divisions or locations of your business.

As more businesses use the online tool, you will be able to benchmark your business’s performance against similar sized businesses and industry types.
