The WorkSafe Plan is also available on the website. The WorkSafe Plan is an assessment process that rates safety and health management systems and directs attention to areas that could be improved. The WorkSafe Plan is not intended to prescribe how to manage safety and health, but to provide a systemic way of measuring how well it is being managed.
WorkSafe works with employers, employees and employee representatives to set up and maintain systems of work so that employees are not exposed to hazards. WorkSafe has seven safety priorities: mobile plant; manual tasks (particularly lifting); electricity; work at heights; slips, trips and falls; hazardous substances and machine guarding.
