Responsible employers know that the primary goal of a safety and health program is to prevent workplace injuries, illnesses, and deaths, as well as the suffering and financial hardship these events can cause for workers, their families, and their employers.

Employers may find that implementing these recommended practices brings other benefits as well. The renewed or enhanced commitment to safety and health and the cooperative atmosphere between employers and workers is linked to:


  • Improvements in a product, process, and service quality. 
  • Better workplace morale. 
  • Improved employee recruiting and retention. 
  • A more favorable image and reputation (among customers, suppliers, and the community). 


Each section of the following recommended practices describes a core program element, followed by several action items. Each action item is an example of steps that employers and workers can take to establish, implement, maintain, and improve your safety and health program. You can use the self-evaluation tool found on the recommended practices Web page to track your progress and assess how fully you have implemented (or will implement) each action item.

Listen to this episode for the full rundown on how to implement each element, with examples and explanations.
