Safeopedia explains Operating Practices

In order for a company to ensure that it is following safe operating practices, it is necessary to develop written guidelines and procedures for dealing with potentially hazardous situations. This may be developed as part of a risk managment program or as a stand alone document to strengthen a company's current safety procedures.
