In the process, yououtline policies and procedures to achieve your health and safety goals.What is a health and safety Program?There are seven essential elements to a successful health and safety management plan: 1. Management commitment 2. Labour and management accountability 3. Employee involvement 4. Hazard identification and control 5. Incident/accident investigation 6. Worker Training 7.
