by , 23 October 2014
If your employees don't comply with your health and safety rules, you'll still be the one who faces penalties.

It doesn't matter if you've done everything legally required to keep your employees and workplace safe.

Don't let your employees be your downfall!

Follow these five steps to get your employees to comply and uphold your health and safety compliance...

 

Make your employees to comply with your health and safety rules in just five steps 

 
Step 1: Involve your employees in discussions on health and safety issues. If your employees feel they have a say when it comes to your health and safety, they're more likely to follow the rules.
 
Step 2: Create a health and safety policy that outlines the health and safety rules you expect your employees to follow. Include the punishment for not complying with these rules.
 
Get all your employees to read and sign a copy of this policy so you can verify they're all aware of these rules.
