Health and Safety Improvement Cycle

What can you do to promote health and safety in your organisation? The Health and Safety Improvement Cycle gives you a step-by-step guide on how to set up and support the comprehensive systems and procedures required for effective workplace health and safety. It’s a roadmap to reducing injury and illness in the workplace.


Planning involves setting goals and objectives and detailing what steps you need to take to make your improvement strategies happen.


Develop, implement and monitor health and safety systems and practices and always look for opportunities to improve.


Reviews are important to assess how well your business is doing at preventing workplace injuries and help you look for opportunities to improve.


All businesses require a strong foundation for health and safety. Health and safety must have the same status within your workplace as other business and production goals.


Health and safety needs to be understood to be implemented effectively in your workplace. The lines of communication within a business need to be open and effective so that health and safety messages can be given efficiently and accurately.
