“I like everything about Online WHS!

Online WHS has made a massive difference to our company. It has allowed me to manage all the many aspects of WHS in an easier and confident manner. The dashboard gives me an immediate view on what modules I need to look at and this has been an incredible time saver. The introduction of QR codes has been a fantastic inclusion.

I am impressed with the continued improvement made to Online WHS and also very happy that the company takes improvement suggestions from its customer and where possible, introduced them into the module.

There are so many WHS aspects that companies need to be across and at times, it can be a bit overwhelming. Now that we are fully using Online WHS, I have a high level of confidence that we are meeting all the necessary requirements, and that is extremely reassuring to both myself and our PCBU. I have also received great feedback from external auditors and other external entities.

I would recommend Online WHS to all companies, it will truly make a difference to how you manage WHS requirements.”
