All businesses, big and small, must have effective health and safety programs. However, the smaller the business the harder it is to develop a plan that successfully prevents injuries and illnesses. If you're struggling to find the time, money, and resources for injury and illness prevention this workbook will help you.
Taking risks is part of running a business, particularly for small business owners. You take risks in product development, marketing, and advertising in order to stay competitive. But there are some risks that should never be taken. One of these is risking the health and safety of those who work for you.
The program is divided into specific health and safety topics. These topics have been broken down into modules which include discussion points, directions, exercises, forms and suggested documentation. Each module has been designed so that it can be completed in 30 to 40 minutes. The method that you use to implement each module of each section is up to you. You may choose to cover one module at a time but keep in mind that the more modules you cover in one session the quicker you will begin seeing positive results from your health and safety effort.
