Everyone has the right to go home at the end of the working day as fit and healthy as when they arrived.

But a safe workplace doesn't just happen by accident. It takes a lot of effort from everyone involved - whether you're the owner, a staff member or a worker.

In this unit, we'll look at the factors that help to keep a worksite safe.

We'll start with the different types of procedures used to document 'approved' ways of carrying out a job.

We'll also examine the laws and regulations that control safety in the workplace, the process of carrying out a risk assessment, and some of the procedures used to handle hazardous substances and deal with emergencies.

This unit is designed for people who work in the flooring technology sector, including on-site installers, warehouse store persons, showroom salespeople and administrative staff.

Although the specific risks you face each day may be different from those faced by others in your organisation, the general processes used to minimise risks and keep the workplace safe are much the same.

It all comes back to having a systematic approach to dealing with hazards and using approved 'low risk' techniques in all your activities.
