It goes without saying that Health and Safety is critical for any business. A safe and healthy workplace not only protects our workers from injury and illness, it can also lower injury/illness costs, reduce absenteeism and turnover, increase productivity and quality, and raises employee morale. In other words, safety is good for business.
HR4U can help create and monitor a Safety Committee, provide guidance and support in the areas of compliance with Health and Safety regulations both Federal and Provincial, such as OHSA and other local regulations, as well as implementing and maintaining a comprehensive company Health and Safety program. This can include providing training to employees on Health and Safety topics, conducting risk assessments, and developing emergency response plans. Additionally, HR4U can also assist your organization in creating a culture of safety, by promoting safety awareness and encouraging a proactive approach to identifying and addressing health and safety concerns.
