Employees often have a detailed knowledge of their work and how it can be made safer. This guide shows how workers can use this knowledge to actively liaise with managers to improve workplace safety and health. It outlines the respective roles, responsibilities and legal duties of workers, their representatives and employers. It gives concrete examples of steps that all parties can take to meaningfully improve occupational safety and health. This guide also contains a useful ‘checklist’ that workers and their representatives can work through to ensure that they are doing their utmost to reduce risks.
