Frequently Asked Questions

We have a large, geographically dispersed business model. How can DRB service our footprint?
DRB partners with peer consultancies that share our values and work ethic to support clients around Australia and Internationally. We currently have resources in Queensland, Victoria, Sydney, Perth and Hong Kong.

Leadership drives culture within a business. Safety leadership is just leadership framing the desired safety culture. What we coach is how leaders can lead safety effectively. We highlight the difference between ‘managing’ and ‘leading’.

We use the GROW coaching model to support leaders across all levels of the business achieve their desired goals.

A WHS risk framework provides the business with the basis for managing WHS risk within the business. WHS legislation places a legal duty on Officers (Directors/Executives) to protect their workers and others from harm by eliminating risk or where this can not be achieved, by minimising risk so far as is reasonably practicable.

It’s not only the law, which can result in significant penalties if risks are not managed, it is also our morale obligation to our workers to protect their health and safety, for them and for their families. If we care about our people, then we care about their health & safety.

Having a robust risk framework (modelled on best practice ISO31000), is a great start to identifying hazards, assessing their risk, implementing controls and then monitoring and reviewing for effectiveness.

Implementing your risks framework is only part of the process. If we take a Plan, Do, Check, Act (continuous improvement) view of risk and controls, our assurance framework is there to provide confidence to the business (Directors/Executives) that the risk controls we have identified remain understood by our people, applied in practice and maintained as effective. 

WHS legislation also requires Officers (Directors/Executives) to exercise ‘due diligence’ in ensuring the safety of workers and others at the workplace. A key element of this due diligence is verifying that resources and processes remain in place and effective. An assurance framework supports this obligation.

We recognise that each business it at a different level of WHS performance and maturity. This is not a bad thing as it provides a baseline for the next level of maturation. We determine your baseline through a series of assessments and diagnostic practices (current state).

We’ll work with your leadership team to set the vision for WHS (future state) and partner with you to identify and develop strategies and initiatives to achieve the desired outcomes.

Similar to a risk assessment of potential hazards that may result in physical harm, a psychosocial risk assessment assesses aspects of the work environment that may result in psychological harm and identifies controls to eliminate or mitigate harm.

SafeWork Australia defines a psychosocial hazard as anything that could cause psychological harm (e.g. harm someone’s mental health).

Examples of common psychosocial hazards at work include: Job demands, poor support, lack of role clarity, remote or isolated work, bullying, harassment, violence & aggression.
