Workplace Safety... it's a complete waste of money, right? Erm, no.
It is a bit like business insurance in a way – nobody wants to keep paying annual premiums ‘just in case’ but it’s something as business owners we all have to do, even safety consultants. You see, the law says that employers MUST appoint one or more competent persons to help them apply the rules and regulations of workplace safety.
