The OHS Policy is the key that will drive your overall business direction.
It should be simple, clear and foster your workplace values and behaviours.
Below is an OHS Policy template that you can use for your Business.
OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY POLICY
To foster a workplace culture across Business operations where safety is considered a core value,
safe behaviour is encouraged and respected, and continual improvement is considered to be part of normal
To eliminate work related injury and ill health, to provide work environments that do not compromise the
safety of any individual, and to ensure that occupational health and safety is proactively managed throughout

Implementing risk management systems to identify, assess, monitor and control workplace risks and hazards.
Maintaining a program of education and training to enhance the skill levels and safety awareness of all staffs.
