“There is a need for a sensible and proportionate approach to risk management, in short, a balanced approach, this means ensuring that paperwork is proportionate, does not get in the way of doing the job and it certainly does not mean risk elimination at all costs”.
Judith Hackitt, HSE Chair

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require employers to put in place arrangements to control health and safety risks.

As an employer, you must appoint someone competent to help you meet your health and safety duties. A competent person is someone with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to manage health and safety. You could appoint (one or a combination of):

  • Yourself
  • One or more of your workers
  • Someone from outside your business

A business should undergo a Risk Profile to ensure that the risks the organisation faces are known, that they are ranked and actions to control them are put in place.

It is recommended that a formal management system is put in place to assist in the management of Health & Safety. Successful delivery of a management system with processes and procedures can rarely be achieved by one-off assessments. A sustained and systematic approach is recommended to ensure that both legal and company requirements are met. Using our SMART methodology we work closely with business owners and their appointed Health and Safety representative, following a Plan, Do, Check, Act approach to delivering results.

DESIGN OF POLICY DOCUMENTS

Conforming to Health and Safety regulations does not mean that you will be drowned in paperwork. We will create the key documents that you will require to meet both current legislation and your workplace.

We make sure that the risks identified in the Risk Assessment are clearly documented and communicated.

Supporting documents for items such as incident reporting and risk identification can be included within the documents created. To find out more on how our team can help you, please contact us.

MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AUDITS

Health and safety investigations form an essential part of the monitoring process that is required. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, regulation 5, requires employers to plan, organise, control, monitor and review their health and safety arrangements. Health and safety investigations are essential part of this regulation.

Incidents, including near misses, can tell you a lot about how processes are actually being performed.

As a business you are expected to make full disclosure of the circumstances of an accident to the injured parties considering legal action. Whether or not legal action is taken from the incident, the findings from the investigation will provide essential information for your insurers in the event of a claim.
