Policies and procedures assist and guide workers to put safety and health into practice at your workplace. They form an integral part in your approach to safety in the workplace. All policies and procedures should be tailored to your local government, to ensure they can be implemented and adhered to by workers.

The OSH team can provide assistance with the development of your policies and procedures.
