Food Manufacturing Companies
Australian Risk Services is known as one of Australia’s leading risk consulting firms. Having conducted extensive risk analysis across the food manufacturing industries throughout Australia and Asia Pacific, our extensive experience translates into in depth knowledge of typical latent conditions that contribute to incidents involving heights, confined space, manual handling, plant and equipment and dangerous goods. Consumer’s health can be compromised, and losses can be unimaginable when it comes to safety issues arising from food manufacturing businesses.
Quality assurance and the implementation of high standards of quality control processes and procedures, are crucial to avoid any form of contamination that can be extremely detrimental to a food manufacturing business. Automotive machinery also plays an important role when dealing with manufacturing and transportation of food products. Accidents and incidents, if they occur, can have serious consequences on staff and clientele, as well as their families. The viability and ongoing operations of a food manufacturing company can be compromised and business owners but employ strict processes and procedures to manage and minimise these types of incidents.
Our ICAM Lead Investigation Training and Technology is an advanced Investigation process that allows Investigators to critically analyse and breakdown all relevant processes and root cause to prevent re-occurrence and the removal of other latent conditions that are not considered root cause but if not addressed could lead to other unrelated accidents in the workplace.
Australian Risk Services have conducted countless risk assessments for companies within the food industry including: Classic Foods, Dairy Farmers, Fresh Cheese, Fonterra, Heinz Wattie’s Australian, Parmalat, Sugar Australia and Vita Sot. Our team at Australian Risk Services are fully trained and qualified to give clients the risk assessment guidance they need to ensure their business is safe for staff and consumers alike.
We found that Australian Risk Services were well versed in the compliance of PIW and in particular PIW of a Dangerous Goods nature. Based on our dealings with Australian Risk Services, I have no hesitation in recommending their services.

I have found Australian Risk Services to be extremely passionate and dedicated to their task at hand, very knowledgeable, and on the whole, open and frank in identifying both strengths and weaknesses.
