5 principles of leading practice safety regulation
Transparency – we have clear rules and processes
Accountability – we explain our performance
Consistency – the same outcome is sought, although
our approach may differ depending on the circumstances
Proportionate – our actions are guided by the safety and
health risk
Targeted – we focus on the most important safety and
health outcomes
