Safety and Health – include it as a matter of course

The importance placed on safety and health is determined by how much these topics are integrated into everyday work as a matter of course. An example of how this can be achieved is by making safety and health a standard part of regular meetings or when purchasing machinery and services. Embedding them in a mission statement or guidelines can help to make them even more binding.
