A new resource is available to help organizations establish and build upon their health and safety efforts. The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has developed a manual that provides guidance for organizations on how to implement and maintain an effective occupational health and safety (OH&S) program.

This 134-page manual (in 8.5x11 inch format) will help organizations create an OH&S program with emphasis on effectiveness, compliance, diligence and documentation. It focuses on preventing or reducing hazards and risks to employees, equipment, material and environment by using workplace hazard assessments, and monitoring and improving your OH&S program.

The manual provides over 50 sample policies and checklists for the implementation of an OH&S program, and is organized by sections that cover commonly required components of an OH&S program. It will assist employers, owners, managers, supervisors, operators – and the organization as a whole – by providing guidance on the development, maintenance and continual improvement of an OH&S program.
