The definition of a policy is typically described as a principle or rule to guide decisions and achieve rational outcomes.
Why do we have policies?
Online WHS helps its users manage their policies in an easy fashion.
Online WHS has a Policy Register containing all policies used by your business relating to workplace health and safety. Review dates can be set for each policy so they can be kept up to date. A history of these updates is also recorded in the system.
A policy regulates, directs and controls actions and conduct, and they can range from broad philosophies to specific rules to guide decisions to a desired outcome and is considered to be a “Statement of Intent” or a “Commitment” to a particular goal.
