Workplace Safety

Companies have legal obligations to meet certain safety requirements, but many go further than the minimum obligations. Safety standards and procedures must be put in place, and everyone needs to follow the standards in order for them to be effective.

These may include conducting regular safety audits, providing training on proper safety procedures, and offering incentives for employees to work safely. By taking these measures, employers can help create a safe workplace where workers can thrive.
