What is a WHS Policy?

A WHS Policy (Workplace Health and Safety Policy) is the document that outlines your commitment to ensuring the health and safety of your employees and others in your workplace.

The goal of this policy is to achieve a safe and incident free workplace. Having a good workplace health and safety policy in your business helps to ensure risks are identified and managed appropriately.

 

Do I need a WHS Policy?

Yes! Business owners have an obligation to provide a safe workplace for their workers and other people that interact with their business. Part of this duty is to identify and eliminate or reduce risks.

By having a workplace health and safety policy, it shows people the steps you’ve taken to achieve this. It also sets out clear guidelines as to how your staff and others need to contribute to a safe workplace.
