The Forum Pledge
Forum members sign a pledge to take personal responsibility for health and safety, and commit to becoming more effective safety leaders. Leaders who join the Forum are sent a copy of the pledge to sign and display in their organisation. This copy is counter-signed by the Minister of Workplace Relations and Safety.
Create a workplace where everyone views health and safety as natural and important as quality, profit and customer service.
Constantly improve its health and safety performance.
Champion health and safety – inspiring our people, suppliers and customers to create Zero Harm Workplaces.
Build workplaces which guarantee reported incidents will be investigated and action taken.

Be open to initiatives from all sources which contribute to achieving Zero Harm Workplaces.
