Keeping Everyone Safe
Working Together for Safety Management Systems
Safety on the job is only achieved when there is an effective safety system in place and everyone understands how it works. A safety system is not tangible but rather a process that continuously operates to reduce hazards and prevent incidents. It includes core principles that protect the safety and health of employees.
Establishing and maintaining an effective safety management system involves holding management accountable for safety by setting practical and attainable goals, defining roles and responsibilities, establishing effective performance measurements and holding individuals accountable for their responsibilities.
A safety management system can take considerable time and effort to develop, but once established there is a structure to live by.
