Develop an Occupational Health & Safety Policy Assignment

This assignment is for you to develop an Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) Policy.

 

Here’s the scenario.  You are an HR/OHS manager that was just transferred to the newly retooled automotive assembly plant in Windsor.  You notice that the accident statistics are very high and there does not seem to be anything in place to try to bring them down.  Morale amongst the workers is very low and there is much conflict between workers and management.

 

You notice that there is currently no Health & Safety program in place so you want to start to implement one.  The first place to start is an Occupational Health & Safety Policy because not only is it legally required under section 25(2)(j) of the Occupational Health & Safety Act but a written Occupational Health & Safety Policy helps promote an effective Occupational Health & Safety program.

 

You will want to utilize the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health & Safety (CCOHS) website or OH&S Notebook 10.3 from our textbook for assistance with items required in an Occupational Health & Safety Policy.

 

Be sure to reference material from the lesson learning.
