Workplace Health & Safety Checklist

Published May 18, 2022 - NZ Operations Manager

No matter how big or small your business is, ensuring the collective health and safety of your staff is crucial. Workplace injuries can lead to increasing costs, loss of revenue, and impact your personnel. Practising workplace health & safety (HSW) guidelines is a sensible way to boost employee morale and protect your business. Maintaining safe standards and implementing protocols go a long way in improving your business and affecting your employee productivity.

Your duties as an employer include looking after the health and well-being of your employees. There are several ways to achieve this:

  • Conduct training sessions to share information about workplace health & safety guidelines with employees
  • Record health & safety training provided to staff
  • Consult with in-house or external trainers for maintaining safety standards and protocols
  • If employees are working from home, then ensure their home is safe space to do so
  • Create a workplace health & safety checklist for employees

To help businesses stay prepared and one step ahead, Employsure has created a complimentary Workplace Health & Safety Checklist. This checklist contains all the essential information business owners and employers need to keep the work environment safe and secure. Our workplace health and safety checklist is specifically designed to achieve the best results for your business.

The Employsure HSW checklist answers some important questions such as:

  • What are the procedures involved?
  • What are the qualifications necessary?
  • What can I do to make my workplace safer for my employees?
  • What documents can I provide to my employees?
