Does your SHE file prove your company cares for the environment?

by , 06 March 2013
Businesses need to pay more attention to the environment. That was the message from Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa to an International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora conference in Thailand on Monday, according to the TimesLive website. There's an easy way to prove your business does all it can to minimise harm to the environment - all you have to do is get your SHE file up-to-date!

You have until 3 May to get in your nominations for this year's 'Greening the Future' awards, says the Mail & Guardian Online.
 
And there're more categories to enter into this year as it's the tenth anniversary of the awards.      
 
This's a great way to prove your company has met its health safety and environmental responsibilities as set out by the Occupational Health and Safety Act, says FSP Business.
 
You could face serious penalties for not taking your OHS Act responsibilities seriously!
 
Because it's your responsibility to care for the environment and minimise harm as a health, safety and environment (HSE) officer, says the Health and Safety Bulletin.
 
As your SHE file should include information on all aspects of your workplace that have an impact on the environment, this is a great place to look for the information you'll need to prove your compliance with the OHS Act.
 
If your SHE file isn't up to date, best you set aside time to do so.
 
Because government is getting serious about environmental concerns and will hold you liable if you're not legally compliant, says the TimesLive.
 
So if you haven't taken your company's responsibility to the environment seriously, you need to get serious now.
 
The easiest way to comply with your environmental responsibilities: Update your SHE file!
 
FSP Business says the easiest way to comply is to make sure you've empowered your health, safety and environment representatives with the tools, training and authority they need to identify and report potential dangers in the workplace that could affect the environment in your company's SHE file.
 
If you haven't already done so, make sure you do so now. It's the easiest way to make sure your business' SHE file is compliant with the OHS Act!
