Opinion: The compliance challenge for privately owned business
Organisational and legal compliance has never been more complex. There is an increasing burden on business owners to ensure that staff understand and comply with all existing laws as well as with new ones, like the new Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.
If you are an owner or director of a business, many of the new rules make you personally liable. To help guard against this, you and your business need to be able to demonstrate through comprehensive compliance reports that staff understand their legal obligations. For many kiwi privately owned businesses, training employees and reporting on this training can be an expensive and time-consuming process.
A focused solution for small and medium businesses
With this in mind, leading law firm MinterEllisonRuddWatts has developed an off-the shelf training system called Safetrac. They have bundled the six essential courses that privately owned business need to ensure their staff are trained in, and they can all be completed through Safetrac’s online compliance training platform. It’s a great solution for helping kiwi businesses manage their compliance requirements.
Dr Ross Patterson, the founder of Safetrac and a partner at MinterEllisonRuddWatts, knows that this online compliance package is going to be a game changer in the New Zealand market. “Helping up and coming businesses to meet their compliance needs in a timely and cost-effective manner is one of the main reasons we created Safetrac. Our online training courses are the new benchmark in comprehensive compliance training.”
A package tailored to your needs
One company in New Zealand has been focused on finding a solution for kiwi privately owned businesses so they can get back to what they do best - running their business. Safetrac provides a customisable online Compliance Management Platform. Being online means that the training, once set-up, practically runs itself. Courses are automatically scheduled, reminders are sent out automatically. At the back end reports are produced which show completion, pass rates and a whole lot more.
Your business benefits as employees getting a good grounding in what they need to know. The package covers:Health and Safety (up to date with the new Health and Safety at Work Act); Discrimination; Bullying; Business Ethics; Privacy; and Cybersecurity, which is an increasing risk to all businesses.
