NSC releases position on safety management systems

The council supports the finding that comprehensive SMSs are effective in reducing the risk of workplace incidents, injuries and fatalities. NSC encourages all companies to adopt an SMS, and measure results against defined criteria, demonstrate sustained management commitment and involvement in safety, and engage workers and employee representatives (where applicable) to participate in the process.
