Do you want to look more professional?

Do you fill out paper based forms?

Do you want to work smarter to make more money?

Today I want to tell you the truth about what happens when people get sloppy with reporting. It may not be pretty, but my job isn’t to sugar coat. My job is to lay out the facts and help you to both protect yourself and profit from what lies ahead, despite what people think about something as unsexy as reporting.

Sloppy reporting is a surefire way to bankruptcy. You might experience some of these problems:

  • You are not winning the big jobs
  • You don’t look as professional as you could
  • You don’t know how to boost profits
  • You can’t meet market demands
  • You can’t keep up with your competitors prices
  • Your sales have decreased
  • Your cost of production has increased
  • You have to lay off employees

You must understand the industry has changed. Adapt to changes or you will go bankrupt. It’s your choice.

  • In the last 20 years China has started producing cars with cheaper labour and innovative productivity means such as robots.
  • Australian industry cannot compete with China’s productivity due to our high labour costs
  • Australian industry forced to lay off workers to compete with competitive prices
  • Australia’s car production has plunged by almost 50% since 2004
  • General Motors has cut 270 jobs
  • Toyota has cut 350 jobs
  • Ford announced it would cut 440 jobs and a possible end to Australia-based production

The secret how successful companies comply with all OHS regulations and still increase productivity and profits.

Here are the facts you need to know:

Complying with every health and safety law (OHS) takes a lot of time and effort, so unfortunately we can sometimes cut corners but is it an area where we can afford to? In today’s world a lack of thoroughness in complying with OHS laws creates severe problems for your company, including bankruptcy and jail.

Not to mention you will not win bigger & more profitable contracts!

Bigger companies will monitor your company’s compliance to OHS laws through inspections and audits. But what could they really do if they found a breech or if your system isn’t up to par?

  • You will lose your contract immediately.
  • Your business will look very unprofessional.
  • Regulators have the right to shut down your operations until you do comply with regulations.
  • The cost of shutting your business is substantially bigger than the amount you’re saving by not training your employees properly or by overlooking safety hazards on site.
  • It is not unlikely that OHS regulators will fine you for failing to comply with regulations, especially if an employer is injured.
  • These fines are separate to the individual law suits that can be filed against you by the worker.
  • Not complying with OHS regulations could seriously leave you bankrupt or even worse in jail.

I bet you are thinking…

“There’s no way I can comply with all OHS regulations without decreasing productivity”

Yes, you can. It’s easier than you think. Let me explain.

To win bigger contracts you need to demonstrate you have a professional systems that manages all your paper documents. The better and more innovative system you have the more professional you look. Image is everything.
