It’s Business Clean-Up day on the 25th of February and as organisation’s all around Australia get ready to fulfil this important corporate social responsibility and make a difference to our environment, another very important measure of clean-up has crossed our minds here at Safetrac – how organised is your business’s compliance and regulatory obligations?
Although compliance addresses the external regulations that affect a business and how it runs, it has a profound impact on your organisations social responsibility towards society and its positioning within the marketplace. At the very least, compliance training is intended to prevent and also identify legal violations that may result in criminal or civil liability – a truth that has been highlighted in the media with major corporations being susceptible to this oversight. A thorough approach to compliance will assist to establish integrity with company stakeholders, as well as provide a form of insurance for any breaches that may occur.
In fact, it’s the perfect time to undergo a compliance ‘clean-up’ as we embark on a new decade where compliance and regulatory responsibilities will continue to play a lead role in the integrity and longevity of a company. Conducting a compliance audit will enable your business to hold a sturdy legal and regulatory structure, whilst enhancing your workplace culture. Furthermore, compliance training will assist in mitigating any potential risk to your business. Compliance and regulatory obligations are not going anywhere, anytime soon.
So, how can you ‘clean-up’ your compliance?
Become familiar with compliance as an organisational principle.
That is, understand what your organisation needs and its obligations, from an individual employee and an overall business viewpoint. Our training course can assist in educating your team on this.
Check whether your compliance training courses are working.
As each business has unique requirements, it is important that compliance training is relevant to your employees in order for practical application to occur within your business. Online courses need to employ adult learning principles, interactive scenarios and testing functionality to ensure engagement and understanding of the training.
Leave it to the experts.
Compliance training needs to be done well, and with expertise that will ensure that your business is adequately protecting itself from risk. Thus, it is imperative that your compliance training courses are up-to-date with changing legislation and contains content that is legally accurate and relevant to your industry and jurisdiction.
Prevention is better than cure.
Don’t wait to clean-up your compliance. A sturdy compliance training function will ensure that your organisation will be safe from any potential risks – whether it be Work Health and Safety or Anti-Bullying and Harassment awareness, it is imperative to your business health.
