It is essential for employers to ensure that their employees work in a healthy and safe work environment. It is the right of an employee to work in a safe work environment that abides by the law. A health and safety policy provides the necessary information related to guidelines, approaches, policies, procedures, and methodologies in place to ensure and manage health and safety in the workplace. This specific document covers essential topics such as who does what activities, when, and how they do it.
Adhering to health and safety practices and being in compliance with suitable health and safety regulations are the responsibilities of all employees and employers. As an employer, it is committed to implementing relevant health and safety policies within the organization and has to publish at various levels such as national, sub-national, local and governmental levels through public oversight corporations. Employers possess legal responsibilities to make sure that their employees are aware of the relevant safety procedures and adhere to them properly. The national occupational health and safety organizations put a great focus on this.
