- Systematically identify and control all hazards in our workplace. Where there are significant hazards we will take all practicable steps to eliminate, isolate and or minimise these hazards to prevent any injury or damage.
- Inform all employees of these hazards and the hazard controls – this will be achieved through participation and consultation during staff meetings, Tool Box Talks & distribution of information via staff memos.
- Ensure all employees/contractors are properly trained and supervised.
- Inform all employees/contractors/visitors of emergency and evacuation procedures.
- Record and investigate all incidents in our workplace, and take all practicable steps to prevent these events from happening again.
