Lecture on Ensuring a Safe and Healthy Work Environment

Health and safety in the workplace is about preventing work-related injury and disease, and designing an environment that promotes well-being for everyone at work. As an employer, it is your responsibility to provide a safe work environment for all employees, free from any hazards and complying with all state and federal laws. The Healthy Work Environments (HWE) Best Practice Guidelines (BPG) are designed to support health care organizations in creating and sustaining work positive environments.
