Work health and safety

Introduction

Work health and safety, or occupational health and safety, is about managing the risks to the health and safety of everyone in your particular workplace, including your employees, customers and suppliers.

While creating a safe workplace is a legal requirement, it’s also critical to the long-term success of your business, and can help you:

  • Retain your staff
  • Improve staff productivity
  • Reduce injury and illness in the workplace
  • Reduce the costs of injury and worker’s compensation
