    Hoping to start some conversation specific to this topic. I was in discussion today, and during that discussion there was a "disagreement" specifically surrounding the verbiage in "d)" Emphasize the consultation of non managerial workers on the following....
    1~9

    Likewise, the similar verbiage exists in "e)" Emphasize the participation of non managerial workers on the following...
    1~7

    The crux of the debate falls on the word "Emphasize". The thinking is that "emphasize" allows for some discretion , (i.e. the proverbial 'wiggle room'), as to whether or not, for example... the organization [per "d)-2)" ] SHALL gather input from workers prior to developing the OH&S policy)

    Thoughts?
