Where's the risk?

Keeping healthy and safe at work is all about identifying, understanding and managing risks - including the risk of sore face from smiling!

 

 

The Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA) is an opportunity for you to review your health and safety practices and behaviours, and revise how you manage the critical risks that could cause illness, injury or even death.

Your focus should be on managing your business’s most significant risks before managing less serious risks. Your work activities should be reviewed on an ongoing basis to identify any new risks that need to be managed.
