Proactive, rather than reactive, steps are essential to managing health and safety in the workplace. A constructive employment relationship is fundamental to achieving this and also to creating a culture in the workplace regarding health and safety as part of everyday work practice.
Employers have strict obligations to minimise the risk of harm to employees and others associated with the workplace. When an accident does occur, it is essential that the response is managed and coordinated well to ensure minimal disruption and cost.
