Many jurisdictions require employers to have OHS programs that contain certain elements. Even if your jurisdiction doesn’t require such programs, having one is an effective way to protect workers’ health and safety and ensure compliance with the OHS laws.
HOW TO USE THE TOOL
Adapt this checklist for the requirements for OHS programs under the OHS laws in your jurisdiction (if applicable). Use the checklist when implementing an OHS program to ensure that it has the necessary components, complies with the OHS laws and is effective. You can also use it to audit an existing OHS program. If the checklist identifies any gaps or deficiencies in your program, make sure you take steps to address them.
