PRACTICAL SAFETY MANAGEMENT
Most senior management recognize the essential need for a safety program to protect their corporate assets from damage or harm, particularly employees. Determining how to deal with these issues can be difficult. Practical Safety Management is designed as a generic guide for companies wishing to create a cost-effective health and safety system. Management is shown the principles behind effective practices needed to establish and maintain systems of work so that employees and property are not exposed to hazards. These management systems are a fundamental component of the general duty provisions of the Occupational Health and Safety Act as well as providing “due diligence”.
Safety management begins with the following premise, “that every company and its management have a financial, legal, and moral obligation to deal with health and safety issues at their workplace”. This course includes a brief description of a management system that provides all the required elements laid out in the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations.
