  • Reduce hazards and the risk of personal injury to its Employees and Occupiers and visitors arising out of its activities;
  • Maintain a safe and healthy place of work; and
  • Reduce hazards and the risk of damage to property.

In particular, the Employer shall:

  • Continue to identify hazards and assess risks to health and safety;
  • Provide and maintain safe equipment and systems of work that are free of risk to health;
  • Maintain any place of work under its control (including access and egress) safe and free of risk to health; authorise the Safety Advisors and Supervisor to STOP unsafe works and conditions.
  • Provide safe arrangements for the use, handling, storage and transport of articles, goods and substances;
  • Provide adequate and appropriate information, instructions, training and supervision;
  • Consult with all the Employees on health and safety matters;
  • Liaise and coordinate with occupiers and contractors who may share temporary occupation where necessary;
  • Monitor, inspect and review the implementation of this Policy; and
  • Review and update this policy annually.

To this end, proper implementation and application of this Policy by everyone is paramount. Employees are required to comply with the terms of this Policy and any related arrangements or policies from time to time in force; take all reasonable steps to protect their own safety and that of other Employees; and co-operate with management in the implementation of this Policy.
