myosh are pleased to announce a New Diamond Corporate Partnership with The Safety Institute of Australia. As the National Association for the Health and Safety Profession, building the capability of the profession and acting as a voice for Health and Safety Professionals, the SIA’s vision aligns firmly with the myosh vision, for safe and healthy workers in productive workplaces.
myosh Director, Adrian Manessis, explained that myosh was drawn to the SIA because of its leadership in the field of health and safety, and commitment to systemic improvements contributing to the quality of advice that employers receive. “We think the SIA is right on track with their capability agenda. The OHS Body of Knowledge, Accreditation of education, the Global Capability framework, Certification and high-quality professional development are all critically needed elements for the health and safety profession and healthier, safer workplaces, and we want to make our own contribution” he said.
SIA CEO David Clarke welcomed the partnership. “The work we do to make workplaces safer and healthier is not-for-profit, but there is a critically important role for Australia’s companies to play in supporting that work.”
“An increasing number of companies want to be part of investing time and expertise in long-term solutions and showing leadership - not just because it might be good for business, but because they see it as a way they can express their desire to make a corporate social contribution to positive change,” he said. “We welcome their investment and put it to work to improve education, training and so much more,” he said.
Over the next two years, myosh will be working with the Institute on a number of not-for-profit projects and activities starting with a series of free webinars for the profession on a range of health and safety issues. The two agencies will also be exploring issues associated with Benchmarking and providing open-source free resources for practitioners and professionals. myosh is also a foundation sponsor of #SafetyScape in Melbourne, 23-24 May this year.
Organisations have been using myosh for over 15 years, to improve health, safety, quality and productivity. The software constantly evolves through client feedback, regulatory compliance and the need to address future challenges. myosh aims to work with the Safety Institute to promote knowledge and technology throughout the Industry.
We look forward to a long and productive partnership with the SIA
