One golden rule to implementing an effective Health and Safety Management System

by , 14 April 2014
You can have a perfectly designed Health and Safety Management System, but if you don't follow this one golden rule, your system is worthless. So what's the golden rule? Read on to find out so you can effectively implement your Health and Safety Management System in your company.

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

One simple step to win over any labour inspector

By law if you operate any machinery in your workplace, you must display the General Machinery Regulations Schedule D (Or Schedule C if you use boilers) where your employees can see it. This will be one of the first things a labour inspector will look for.

Take this simple step for a good start to any inspection.

Revealed: The golden rule of implementing a Health and Safety Management System

The golden rule is: When you implement and design your Health and Safety Management System, include your employees in the process. Get their input and co-operation.

Let them feel they're part of the system and the process, and then you'll have a successful working system.

If you follow this rule, everyone will work together to make the system work. This will in turn create a safe work environment.

What exactly is a Health and Safety Management System?

A Health and Safety Management System is a framework that your company must use to:

  • Identify and control health and safety risks;
  • Minimise the potential risks to prevent accidents;
  • Help achieve compliance with health and safety legislation; and
  • Create a safe working environment for your employees and customers.

If you want your Health and Safety Management System to be a success, you must follow the golden rule.

In addition to following the golden rule, keep these points in mind when you implement your Health and Safety Management System

When it comes to implementing a Health and Safety Management System, the Health & Safety Advisor says you must use the 'Demming Quality Process' approach.

That is:

  • Plan;
  • Do;
  • Check; and
  • Act.

This process is also known as the PDCA cycle.

In the context of a Health and Safety Management System, you must:

  • Plan your Health and Safety Management System.
  • Implement your Health and Safety Management System.
  • Ensure you're complying with the law.
  • Take action if problems arise.

Now that you know the golden rule, follow it so you can implement an effective Health and Safety Management System.
