What is a Health and Safety Checklist?
A health and safety checklist is a tool used to ensure that Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) practices are implemented and followed across the business. Performing workplace health and safety checks helps prevent work-related incidents, injuries, and illnesses. Failure to comply with WHS policies can result in fines or, worse, endanger people's lives.
