Outsourcing is guaranteed to prove cost-effective for any small to medium-size business. With no tie-in contracts and flexible payments, you can’t go wrong with Compliance Health and Safety.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations require all organizations with 5 or more staff to carry out written health and safety risk assessments of all of their significant hazards. The Health & Safety Executive guidance “5 Steps to Risk Assessment” details a 5-step approach to workplace risk assessments: We will complete this on your behalf ensuring that your company is fully compliant.

 

Risk assessments must be reviewed annually, if the business has significantly changed, new staff, processes or new machines have been introduced, we will revise the risk assessments and update accordingly.

 

Assistance is available to support your risks in the form of full training to employers and employees

  • Identify the hazards present in the workplace (a hazard is anything with the potential to cause harm e.g. trip hazards, slippery floors, electrical equipment, lifting heavy objects, stress, machinery/equipment, fire, etc.)
  • Identify the people at risk from the hazards, e.g. employees, contractors, visitors, etc. Particularly vulnerable employees should also be considered, e.g., young people, new employees, and new/expectant mothers
  • Evaluate the risk, taking into account the likelihood and severity of any accidents. Existing controls that are already in place to reduce risks should be identified and evaluated
  • Record the significant findings on a suitable form
  • Review the risk assessment regularly, or when things change e.g. new equipment is purchased, processes change or an accident or near-miss has occurred
  • Haynes (UK) Limited are experts in all areas relating to risk assessment, and there are two main options for organizations looking for risk assessment assistance:
  • We can carry out your risk assessments for you
  • Our health and safety risk assessment experts can also help construction and contracting organizations with generic risk assessments and method statements that are able to be modified to suit specific jobs, and site-specific risk assessment documents and procedures.
  • Manual handling activities require a manual handling risk assessment that considers the tasks being carried out, the loads being handled, the work environment and the individuals involved
  • New legislation requires every non-domestic premise to carry out a fire risk assessment. This follows a similar 5 step approach as described above, but the assessment should focus on the 3 elements required for fire to start – heat, fuel, and oxygen.
  • Hazardous substances require a specific COSHH risk assessment – obtaining the safety data sheet alone does not comply with the law
  • display screen equipment risk assessment should be carried out on every computer user
  • We will carry out relevant risk assessments on people identified as being at risks such as Young Persons or Expectant Mothers
  • Premises and Activities all need risk assessing to avoid any injury to your employees and possible legal action if relevant health and safety practices are not in place
  •  Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (Power) require that all Equipment is risk assessed to avoid injury. Examples of these could be;
  • Lifting and accessing equipment
  • Office equipment
  • Power Tools
  • Hand Tools
  • Machines

According to The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974), health and safety policies must be regularly reviewed and revised, and changes must be brought to the attention of all employees.

Health and safety policies are a legal requirement for any company which employs 5 or more members of staff. The health and safety policy should consist of three key sections:

  • The Statement of Intent (Company goals, objectives, and targets for health and safety)
  • Organizational Responsibilities (Management and employee responsibilities)
  • Arrangements for Implementation (How the company will achieve its aims). This is company-specific and should include health and safety issues on site

The compilation of a policy document is not a once-in-a-lifetime experience, as it must be regularly reviewed to ensure that it constantly reflects your business developments. Compliance Health and Safety take the headache out of preparing your policy, as our dedicated health and safety consultants we will discuss what is required and prepare a suitable document on your behalf.

This document will be subsequently reviewed on a regular basis by the health and safety consultant to ensure that it shows a true reflection of your company.
