Health & Safety Tips for 2018

Health & Safety Tips for 2018

Reassess the H&S of your workforce

  • It’s not essential to start your health & safety management program from scratch every year
  • Take a fresh look at the overall picture of health & safety in your workplace, to highlight what is and isn’t working
  • How many accident or cases of illness were there in 2017? Are line managers taking the issue of health & safety seriously?
  • Are your staff aware of both your and their obligations to help ensure a safe working environment?

Review your risk assessment

  • Risk assessments are not required for every single activity that takes place during day to day activities
  • Review what you are doing on an ongoing basis
  • If there are any significant changes in activities, review your risk assessments in areas that need improvement

Legislation Changes

  • Employers must deal with many new pieces of legislation and changes to existing legislation
  • The HSE provides advance notices of all the upcoming amendments which need to be adopted by businesses and, over time, incorporated into your health & safety policy
  • Our Health & Safety Consultants can take the burden away from you and ensure that any relevant legislation changes are incorporated into your health & safety management

Invest in Training

  • One of the easiest ways to help avoid workplace accidents is by providing training
  • It ensures you are fulfilling your legal obligation to protect your staff
  • Review your training records, identify who requires specialist training to undertake their role safely
  • Courses include: First Aid, Fire Warden and Manual Handling

These are simple tasks for Health & Safety in 2018. It doesn’t need to be complicated or take up a lot of time. You do have a legal obligation to provide a safe working environment, and not put your employees at risk.

If you would like your risk assessments, legislation or handbook reviewed, then please contact your consultant, or call us on 01206 752100.
