Safe work procedures can be written up in a variety of ways, and range from simple checklists through to formal documents.

What they all have in common is that they provide workers with approved methods for carrying out tasks or using particular products.

There are some procedures that you'll be personally involved in, such as safe work method statements.

Others will come from product suppliers, such as material safety data sheets.

And there will be others still that may not exist as stand-alone documents, but will form part of your company's 'Policies and Procedures' manual, like the requirement to wear personal protective equipment.

In this section, we'll look at all of these types of procedures and discuss the effect they have on the way you do your job and the responsibilities you're given.
