Health and Safety for Small Business

Successful businesses of all sizes know that occupational health and safety is important to overall performance. Workplace injuries and illnesses have a direct effect on your company's bottom line, and the ability to operate safely is essential to building a productive, cost-effective organization.

In this module, we will review the business case for workplace health and safety, then go on to outline key health and safety issues that all small business owners should be aware of.
