Ensuring your business has a safety program is taking care of your business. The Occupational Health and Safety Program Guide for Small Businesses will step you through the process to build and maintain a program that protects your workers' well-being and your business.
No matter how small your business is or the type of work you do, you must provide and maintain a safe workplace.
With a written OHS Program, you create an action plan for how you:
- Define safety responsibilities;
- Identify and control hazards;
- Train workers in safe work practices; and
- Document and track health and safety in your business.
This guide can assist you in building and implementing your OHS program.
