Workplace Health and Safety Policy
My Pathway, is committed to implementing, maintaining and improving, the highest standards of workplace health and safety for all employees, contractors and visitors. Our aim is to ensure that the appropriate resources are available and effectively utilised in the areas of risk assessment and control, training, supervision, and the prevention of workplace accidents, injury, and ill-health.
This occurs through our commitment to:
• Implementation of our workplace health and safety management system
• Eliminate, reduce or otherwise control hazards within the workplace
• Ensuing that all employees, contractors and sub-contractors demonstrate commitment to maintaining and improving workplace health and safety
• Development and maintenance of a safe and healthy work environment where there is an emphasis on preventing accidents and work-related illnesses.
• Comply with WH&S legislation
• Establishment of WH&S goals and monitoring our performance against these goals in order to continually improve the management of WH&S
• Promote and support communication and consultation between employees, their representatives, customers, suppliers and management on health and safety matters
• Establishment of a Safety Committee and Safety Representatives covering all our business activities
• Commitment from senior management, supervisors and employees to WH&S. This commitment will be recognised by inclusion of WH&S responsibilities in individual Position Descriptions
We recognise that the overall responsibility and commitment to provide a safe workplace rests with management, who will be accountable for the implementation of this policy. The commitment and responsibilities include:
• Management review meetings to establish measurable objectives and targets and to ensure continued improvement aimed at the elimination of work-related injuries and illnesses; and
• Ensuring that all WHS policies and procedures are documented, reviewed, implemented, maintained and communicated to all employees;
• Providing adequate resources to meet these WHS commitments.
• Employees also have responsibilities, which include – following all WHS policies and procedures; and
• Recognising and reporting hazards which may affect the health and safety of themselves, others, or the environment.
We are committed to encouraging consultation and co-operation between management and employees and will formally involve elected employee health and safety representatives in any workplace change or any matters that may affect the health and safety of employees in any workplace.
