This content will be provided to employees in a number of formats which include as an e-book and hard copy and will be rolled out to all staff via line managers to ensure employee understanding. This roll out will be supported by additional manager resources, toolbox talks and employee acknowledgement slips which confirm that they have received and read the new QHSE supplement.
