Developing a Safety Procedures Manual

Developing a Safety Procedures Manual
Enquire Now

Safety procedures are a requirement in how organisations manage their health and safety and a safety procedures manual provides a logical format for this information to be accessed and shared by employees both current and prospective.

According to the Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011, a procedure is a form of administrative control that means a method of work or a process is designed to minimise risk, so developing a safety procedures manual will have benefits for the employees working at your company, and the company themselves as they will be following legal guidelines in terms of health and safety. This course will give you a foundation to start writing effective safety procedures with immediate effect.

We recommend that you review samples of your company’s procedures (safety, quality and environmental) before you start the course. If there isn’t one available, you will be able to research a company that does as many present this documentation on their website.
