    Cons

    Is good to ensure a tool box talk to all your workers prior to commencement of work each day to ensure a good safe system of work and also make sure that risk assessment and method statements as per every activity is well communicated to all workers. Provide good welfare facilities to ensure workers are healthy at all times and motivate them

    Advice to Management

    Management should demonstrate commitment towards health and safety to avoid sick leave, accident/incident rate, compensation claims and prison. Management should make safety a priority and also provide training to all staff or employees to ensure that the properties and personnel are protected at all times
