The purpose of a written safety program is to reduce work-related injuries and illnesses. Management stipulates their safety requirements and expectations for employees to follow. Having these requirements and expectations in writing is important, it will reduce opportunities for miscommunication and it will provide employees with a guideline on how to identify hazards and how to proceed to reduce or eliminate those hazards.
