Safety Management Systems
Safety Management Systems
A robust Safety Management System (SMS) is the cornerstone of effective safety management. Getting this right will be integral in providing a safe workplace as it helps to establish safe systems of work. At Sentinel Safety Services we understand that every business is different and generic solutions will not necessarily be efficient or effective for everyone. Our systems are customised and tailored specifically to your business. We undertake a thorough assessment of your business activities and develop an SMS that works in practice, not just a binder to put on a shelf.
Contact us to discuss your SMS requirements today.
If you want to take your Safety Management System online we have partnerships with leading providers of software for online safety management systems including integration of QR code technology to simplify safety management processes.
If you would like to know more, contact us for the range of options and an obligation free demonstration.
If you already have an SMS and want to know how effective it is, you can now do a simple online assessment at your own convenience. We have partnered with the Health & Safety Index which enables organisations to measure, benchmark and act on improvements that matter.

Health & Wellbeing
Health & Wellbeing
Health and Wellbeing in the workplace is about ensuring your workers are not only healthy but also happy and engaged in your business. This often requires providing assistance to workers following injury, management of fitness to work and promoting health and well-being programs.
We support your business through:
Injury Management Services
Workplace injuries have a major and costly impact on both the injured party as well as the business. Sentinel Safety Services is invested in successfully returning injured workers to duty through services such as developing rehabilitation programs and assessment for suitable duties that the employee can return to. This helps to minimise the impact that low morale can have after an incident and prevent an increased staff turnover. We will also assist with the workers compensation claim paperwork and liaison throughout the process between worker, doctors and insurers. At such a critical junction, our expertise and knowledge could save your business on claims costs and penalties.
Fit For Work Programs
It is imperative that your workers present fit for work each day to perform their duties. We can develop a Fit For Work Policy and program and assist you with implementation. Our programs help navigate through issues such as alcohol and other drug abuse, fatigue and pre-employment medicals.
Mental Health Programs
A mentally healthy workplace is beneficial to both workers and employers. A well-designed mental health program can provide the support and assistance required in today’s fast paced challenging world. This leads to reduced absenteeism, less injuries and increased employee engagement. We can design a program to meet the needs of your organisation and deliver the program to your workforce.
Call us today if you have experienced an incident and need assistance to navigate your way back or require help with development of a health and well-being program.
Empowering your employees to perform their jobs safely is the ultimate goal of Health and Safety Management. Providing training and development opportunities can often be overlooked but are just as often contributing factors to incidents.
We offer a range of training packages to suit your needs including:
- Development and delivery of customised training programs or modules.
- Preparation toolbox talks for delivery by your own teams.
