Health & Safety Policy
When 5 or more people are employed, it is a legal requirement that there are written procedures for the management of Health and Safety in place. This will include a Health and Safety Policy which will identify the arrangements and persons responsible for the effective management of Health and Safety within the organisation.
Abbott Rose can assist in developing a bespoke Health and Safety Policy, taking into account all aspects of work carried out. Abbott Rose can also assist in guiding those responsible for the day-to-day management of Health and Safety so as to ensure their duties are fulfilled.
Health & Safety Process and Procedures Manual
When complex tasks are carried out, it may require a specific process or procedure to be documented, thus creating a 'step-by-step' guide,
Abbott Rose, in addition to assisting with Health and Safety Policies above, can develop Health and Safety Process and Procedure Manuals specific to an organisation's needs.
The Management of Health and Safety Regulations (specifically Regulation 3) require that all operations be risk assessed. Risk Assessments should address significant risk, yet dismiss trivialities.
Abbott Rose can work with an organisation to identify and develop Risk Assessments along with assisting an organisation to implement control measures to ensure a Safe System of Work (SSW) is adopted.
The Management of Health and Safety Regulations (specifically Regulation 7) require that a competent person, either directly employed or an external adviser, be appointed in order to ensure compliance with regulations.
Abbott Rose can be appointed by an organisation to fulfill this requirement and act as their competent person, providing advice and guidance along with specific advice as required.
Health & Safety Audit & Inspection
In order to determine whether Policy and Procedure is being implemented and complied with, regular Health and Safety Audits and Inspections should be carried out. Reports provided by these audits will highlight both good practice and, if required, provide guidance to assist in further improvement and compliance.
Abbott Rose can complete Audits and Inspections either in-house or accredited. These reports can be used to guide SSW and improve compliance.
Accidents (unplanned & unwanted events) unfortunately do occur. When they do, it is essential to complete a thorough investigation to identify trends and, where necessary, adopt alternate working practices.
Abbott Rose can carry out detailed investigations, identifying the immediate cause and route cause of accidents and incidents. These are an important tool when ensuring repeat events do not occur. They can also be used for insurance purpose when required.
