By law an employer must, so far as is reasonably practicable, provide and maintain for employees of the employer a working environment that is safe and without risks to health.
An OHS Policy is a method of stating how you, your employees, contractors and visitors agree to meet their obligations under health and safety legislation when they are on school property or performing school-related activities. As an employer, you are required by law to provide a 'safe system of work.'
Under 'Resources' there are a number of policy and procedure templates on a variety of OHS topics, which schools can modify to suit their needs and adopt.
