This chapter outlines what to record in relation to workplace injury and disease, and how to analyse your data to assess the safety performance of your organisation.
What is safety recording?
Safety recording is an important part of developing and maintaining an effective work health and safety (WHS) management system.
Safety recording is the method of recording information on work injury and disease in your organisation.
Records of safety performance underpin an organisation’s safety culture. They allow you to assess whether the safety policies and procedures in place are operating effectively.
Preventative strategies are approaches your organisation can implement to reduce the occurrences of workplace injury and disease.
