Safe Working Procedure – Working Environment

Safe Working Procedure - Working Environment

Set your work objectives to include;

“...tasks/ activities are to be completed on time and in a manner that does not cause harm to the employees, customers, other non-employees, or the company/ organisation.”

  • Three key questions to start with are…
  • What can cause harm?
  • What are you doing about it?
  • Is it enough?

Remember the process is simple but it is NOT to be considered simplistic.
