The WorkSafe Plan (opens in new window) 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.
