An Australian Financial Review article1 at the end of December 2022 described the challenge of finding skilled labour in the current employment market. There are simply not enough qualified candidates out there to fill the jobs required.
On the Seek website there are currently 3,337 advertisements for OHS Consultants and 7,640 advertisements for Health and Safety Managers. You are not alone if you are struggling to find an experienced OHS/WHS professional for your business.
The Australian Financial Review said that the challenge of finding skilled labour will encourage employers to hire more contractors. From enquiries we’ve been receiving, we can tell you that this is already happening as employers look for a suitable temporary solution.
There is no doubt that you need experienced professionals to help your business grow and OHS is no exception. Using our outsourcing service will ensure that you meet all your compliance requirements and minimise your risk exposure while you search for a skilled OHS candidate to join your business.
We’ll allocate your business one of our highly qualified consultants who will develop a close relationship with your organisation and take the time to understand your culture and needs. They can conduct a compliance audit to identify any gaps and make sure that you are compliant with all your OHS/WHS obligations or, alternatively, they can work on a specific project.
At JTA we keep up to date with OHS/WHS legislation and conduct regular reviews to ensure we are abreast of regulatory changes.

This allows our consultants to advise you on the most current OHS/WHS legislation applicable to your business.
