- Approach the issue of vaccination in a voluntary and encouraging way.
- Be aware of the potential legal issues and risks that underpin the wording and implementation of a policy.
- Always take into account fact sensitivities when applying a policy.
- Strive to retain effective and harmonious employment relations regarding the implementation of a policy.
