All workers should come home safely at the end of their workday, from the first shirt right through to retirement. That become possible when government, employers and workers collaborate to create a healthy and safe workplaces. A combination of best practices, education, awareness, and complicance with occupational health and safety (OHS) laws helps achieve that goal. By taking action before an incident occures, workplace illnesses/injuries can be prevented. We accomplish this by empowering workers, and enforcing workplace health and safety laws.
