If you can tick all the right boxes you are well on your way to Safety Compliance Assurance. If not, don’t worry, help is at hand.
1 – Health and Safety Policy
You must have a Health and Safety Policy statement that explains how you intend to manage Health and Safety hazards within your workplace.
2 – Assessment of workplace risks
You need to have a system that supports you in identifying and managing all hazards to employees and site visitors. Remember, every workplace no matter how trivial the activities seem from a Health and Safety perspective WILL have hazards and risks which require managing.
3 – Assessment of other risks within the workplace
Being able to demonstrate management of other safety risks within your workplace e.g. fire safety, is a legal requirement. You must have a system that supports you in identifying and managing all other hazards which could present a risk to employees and site visitors.
4 – Communicating workplace safety
Health and Safety law requires you to communicate any known and foreseeable workplace safety hazards to all interested parties including employees, visitors and authorities.
5 – Access to competent Health and Safety advice
Access to up-to-date and competent Health and Safety advice is a requirement under Health and Safety law. This ensures that all employers are familiar with the actions to take in managing their workplace safety concerns.
