Queensland – Small Business OHS Workshops

We visit lots of small businesses as part of our consultancy activities.  One thing that we’ve noticed is that lots of our clients would like to invest more time and money in improving their OHS practices, but unfortunately, the budget and time available just don’t stretch that far.
