Health & Safety

Health & Safety

A holistic vision of safety in the workplace means not only protection from physical hazards, but also moderated workloads and opportunities for rest; respectful treatment; prompt, good-faith resolution of conflicts; and—because it affects everyone’s well-being—knowledge of one’s rights and protections.

This section covers primarily workplace safety plans and policies that are aimed at physical hazards. The next section, Human Relations, addresses the skills, strategies, and resources for managing relationships, including reviews and evaluations, harassment policies, conflict and grievance resolution, and disciplinary action, which are also important for keeping your team healthy and safe.
