WORK HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICY
STAFF OPTIONS is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all staff and our clients. We believe that the health and safety of people at work is a vital factor in the successful provision of services. Every effort will be made to comply with the relevant Acts and Regulations.
Promoting and maintaining occupational health and safety is primarily the responsibility of management. However, to achieve a safe organisation it is important that everyone accepts responsibility for the health and well being of everyone in the workplace. This includes client’s employees, STAFF OPTIONS employees, contractors and visitors to the site.
MANAGEMENT will promote the concepts of health and safety and take all practical steps to identify and address any unsafe or unhealthy conditions or behaviour in the work area to ensure that it is safe and without risks to health. This includes the work organisation and systems of work are safe as well as providing adequate resources, supervision, information and training so that workers are able to perform their duties safely.
STAFF/WORKERS: All workers are responsible for taking reasonable care of their own health and safety, as well as the health and safety of others in the workplace. This includes cooperating fully with any directives of management aimed at maintaining a safe and healthy work environment. It also includes reporting any unsafe or unhealthy conditions and reporting accidents/incidents promptly.
