Worker participation in Occupational Safety and Health - a practical guide

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.
