Good health and safety in the workplace is proven to save employers money. If an employer has a good structure in place to manage and monitor the health and safety of his employees, accidents and incidents can be reduced. This can have a dramatic impact on reducing downtime as a result of sickness and absence. The financial implication can be a reduction in the possibility of litigation and potentially reductions in insurance premiums. Less downtime may also increase productivity and efficiency which may have an onward effect on customer satisfaction. The HSE recommends a clear policy for the management of health and safety. If you have more than four employees, under section 2(3) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, you must have a written policy clearly defining organisation and arrangements for implementing and informing your staff of the health and safety arrangements. This policy must include details, where appropriate, of arrangements for:
- Accident investigation and reporting
- Health and safety training and investigation
- Monitoring and audit
- Health surveillance
- Plant monitoring and maintenance
- Liaison with outside agencies
- Management/employee safety committees.
Total Safety Training and Consultancy will work with you to construct and develop a suitable policy for your organisation.
All areas of your workplace require assessing to consider the risk to the health and safety of your staff. Display screen equipment, plant and machinery, manual handling and Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) are all areas of potential concern. We can conduct an assessment looking at all these aspects to help reduce the risk and identify ways of controlling the hazards. Following an inspection you will be issued with a report detailing the findings and making recommendations. Our consultants can then work alongside you and your staff to advise and develop an action plan to implement the recommendations.
