Safe Operating Procedures

Safe Operating Procedures (SOPs) are a set of safe work practices and step-by-step instructions that are required in the workplace to control identified hazards to help ensure employee safety.  Supervisors can contact OHS for assistance when identified hazards require an SOP.  Employees must be trained in and follow all SOPs that pertain to them.  SOPs must be reviewed yearly by a JOHSC.  All SOPs will be developed with input from the employees who do the work.  They understand the hazards best!

Use the template below to draft an SOP.  Please forward to OHS for review and inclusion on this website, as required.
