The University is required to have adequate systems, processes, structures, resources, procedures and reporting in order to be compliant with health and safety legislation.
The Traffic Light System offers an opportunity for integration of senior management into a measurement and evaluation process with outcomes which help to demonstrate involvement and due diligence.
This level of monitoring provides a method of measuring key elements of health and safety management which can be evaluated to highlight overall performance in all parts of the University. Its collated data presents an Executive overview to assist in identifying and acknowledging areas where greater focus is required, in respect of work health and safety. This enables the University to direct and better utilise resources to assist in implementation of corrective measures.
The Traffic Light System is to be used on a bi-annual basis and demonstrates a proactive determination to monitor and continually implement safety improvements. It will also assist in demonstrating compliance with the Work Health and Safety Act.
