SureHire explains safety case

Safety cases are described as a regulatory assessment of the health risks and hazards of an industrial environment, formalized into documentation for referential purposes. Companies pose distinct hazardous situations to all personnel, therefore, employers assume responsibility to proactively and effectively reduce the incidence of injurious or life-threatening circumstances.
