A tip for managing your health and safety more effectively

by , 18 August 2014
Health and safety is a very complicated beast. There are many different processes that make up the process. If you miss just one step, you may be guilty of non-compliance. That means serious punishment from the DoL if it finds out.

But you don't have to feel snowed under by health and safety procedures. You can simply and effectively manage this process.

All you need is to use this one simple tip and follow it carefully...

 

This one health and safety tip will make your health and safety more effective

 
Tip: Plan and document everything
 
Good health and safety starts with a detailed health and safety plan. This means taking the time to draft up a plan and all the steps you'll need to take to put it in place. 
 
This plan must guide your health and safety programme and detail all the documents you need for every step of the process.
 
Use your plan to create a filing system where each step has its own file or draw and that's where you keep all of the documents you need.
 
Here's an example of how to do this.
 
*********** Best seller  *************
 
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.
 
*********************************
 

Here's an example of how to use your health and safety plan to improve your process

 
When you write up your plan, you'll have a 'train employees' step. Here you'll detail all the employees you want to train and what training they need. 
 
You can then use this plan to create a filing system. Create a folder where you can store all your training documents. Then create subfolders for all the different training course. In those folders, place the records for employees who did the course.
 
This will help you keep track of what you've complied with because you can check your health and safety records against your plan and see what's missing. Now you can ensure you've complied with every part of health and safety laws.
