How well managed is 'workplace health and safety' at your place of employment or your home if you work at home?
Inspired by this horrific news story
Workplace health and safety is now a very important part of workplaces in Australia (and other countries I am sure). There is now significant legislation to ensure people are safe in their workplaces, but how does this legislation and all that policy translate at a grass roots level?
How safe is your workplace? Is safety something you (and your work colleagues) think about consciously and take seriously? What areas have you identified that are not safe in your workplace and do management take it seriously or is it really just given lip-service?
Please provide examples of good and not so good practice if you like.
