Health and Safety is everybody's responsibility and we must all be continuously aware of our own safety and the safety of others in everything we do. The management of health, safety and welfare and the effective control of workplace hazards is an integral part of every manager’s job but everyone has a part to play in ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of employees and the community.
