Dear Reader

Do you ever think that because you have a SHE Plan, that's all you need to fulfill your Health and Safety obligations? The truth is that your SHE Plan is actually a part of your SHE File. And while it is a rather big part of your SHE File, it really isn't the only thing you should have.

Let's have a look at 14 other items you need to have in your SHE File…

******************

Are you responsible for compiling your SHE file?

Are you struggling to keep up-to-date with all the paperwork?

Do you waste your time formatting all the documents?

Are you stressed out about all your legal requirements?

Of course you are. You have enough on your plate already, and keeping up with paperwork isn't on the top of your to-do list. But unfortunately, it's part of your job because it's a legal requirement. And, you've answered 'YES' to at least half of the questions above.

******************

14 Must-haves for your SHE File

Your SHE File should include the 14 following elements (13 if you're not involved in mining). Remember: these are only a guideline:
  1. Planning
  2. General administration requirements
  3. Appointment documents
  4. Risk assessments

Keep reading for the ten other must-haves for your SHE File.

******************

It doesn't matter if you've got a Health and Safety Policy, an Emergency Evacuation Plan and an Induction Program for new employees...
If you don't have an up-to-date SHE File, you aren't fully compliant with the OHS Act!

Discover the one tool that'll help you compile your SHE file quickly and easily and keep it up to date.

******************

Ten more must-haves for your SHE File...
  1. Training information

  4. Hazardous substances
  5. Road management
