Product Description

The establishment, maintenance and monitoring of a safe work environment is both an ethical and a legal obligation of the Committee of Management, which is responsible for compliance with the relevant legislative and regulatory frameworks that apply within their geographic jurisdiction.

The provision of a safe work environment should consider not only the organisation’s facilities, equipment and implementation of safe work practices on site, but also take into account staff safety in the field, and protection of the social and psychological wellbeing of staff and clients in accordance with international human rights.

Therefore, the Workplace Safety Policies and Procedures contained in this Manual not only provide a structural framework for safe work practices, consistent with relevant regulatory and Standards requirements, but also reflect an unequivocal commitment to protection of individual human rights and principles of natural justice.

The B. Richardson and Associates Resource Package has been specifically designed for community service providers to support them in implementing a quality management approach to service planning and delivery. Each component in the Package is able to be purchased as a single item. For example, agencies may purchase just one Policy Manual related to a specific functional area, or choose to purchase just one or two Bundles of sample templates for evidence-based practice. Service provider autonomy has been a critical consideration in the design and structure of these resources, which are designed to be reviewed, amended and individually customised to ensure consistency with organisational practices.
