Health & Safety Essentials: Worker Involvement
Health & Safety Essentials Part 4 - Involve Your Workforce
Consult with your workforce and let them know that you care about their health and wellbeing. This is not just a requirement of Health & Safety law but also a good business move. Your employees can help you spot workplace risks, they can also let you know if working methods are unsafe and they can even help to identify if the management team's health & safety controls are workable.
You should record your employees' views and act on them in order to improve processes. You also need to make sure that if a union or employee representative for safety have been elected that you share necessary information with these individuals.
