All workplaces require systems for managing health and safety. Having effective health and safety practices in the workplace will assist in identifying, eliminating or at the very least mitigating risk factors which can lead to injury or illness.
Being proactive is the most effective way of preventing injury, which is why there is a need to place greater emphasis on the assessment and monitoring of operations and processes that may generate hazards in your workplace.
