Workplace Health and Safety (WH&S)
Woollahra Council recognises its duty to ensure the health and safety at work of its employees and others.
It is our policy:
- To develop and maintain appropriate standards of work facilities and work methods through consultation between employees and managers, and to seek the guidance of knowledgeable advisers as needed to this end.
- That no work will be regarded as so urgent or important that time cannot be made available to establish safe methods and equipment for it.
- That employees will be provided with the information and instruction necessary to understand the risks associated with our work and their role in working safely with them.
- To consult with employees in the implementation of this policy and in the development of health and safety programs at all levels in the organisation.
