Description

Description: 

This checklist is a tool for enterprises to use when preparing their workplace assessment (WPA).  All enterprises with employees are obligated to draw up workplace assessments. The workplace assessment is the enterprise’s own tool for identifying, prioritising and solving working environment problems. The checklist contains a number of yes/no questions. Questions answered with a ‘yes’ pose a working environment problem to be included in an action plan prepared by the enterprise.
