As an employee, you have a key role to play in preventing work-related injuries and diseases. First, you have to be careful and take the necessary precautions to ensure your own health and safety and that of any colleagues who may be affected by your work or activities.
Nobody knows a workplace better than the people who work in it, so Part II of the Code gives the workplace parties—the employers and employees—a strong role in identifying and resolving health and safety concerns.
The provisions of the Code are designed to strengthen employers' and employees' self-reliance in dealing with occupational health and safety issues and thereby making workplaces safer.
