AM: health and safety

The aspect I have chosen for the PMA is health and safety.  Of course, this is a topic that I am interested in and that's why I choose this.  But one more reason for that is health and safety is a topic that cannot be ignored for every business.

Before researching in this topic, I thought it would be a challenge to write a PMA on this aspect as the scope is quite narrow especially for WaveRiders because most of the processes are done by hand.  However, I was wrong.  I have browsed a lot on the government website and many health and safety parties and realize that even for a SME like WaveRiders, there are tons of concerns in this topic!

health and safety is about paying attention to every small detail that might cause danger or harm to human.  it covers a lot because everything can be a risk if it is handled in a wrong way.

so, similar to CSR, though health and safety is regulated by law, voluntary effort is highly prefered.  not only the things listed in laws are needed to be considered.  as this is a serious topic that that relates to human lives, it is important for every company to investigate its own risks and take further actions to solve the problems.

again, it's a matter of awareness.  without the directions lead by law, we need to put efforts to see the big picture so as to remove risks.  this is a lesson that we have to learn about.
