Health & Safety Manual Consulting & Writing
OH&S Manual Development and Review
The effectiveness of a workplace health and safety program is weakened when employees don’t know or don’t follow proper safety procedures. This puts workers at an increased risk of injury or disease, and their employer at an increased risk of financial losses through lower productivity and potential legal trouble. Having health and safety manuals outlining correct, step-by-step, safety procedures is a vital part of a robust health and safety program. JMB Risk Management has many years of experience consulting with companies in the development of easy-to-understand health and safety manuals.
Posted where needed in a workspace, manuals provide a written list of best safety practices. They allow quick and easy access to everyone coming in to a workspace: new and young workers with no experience, workers returning from long absences, workers needing or wanting to refresh their knowledge, and visitors. To continue to provide the best protection, manuals need to be updated when there is a change in the job, machinery, conditions and legislation.
