Every single person in your organisation should be involved with Health & Safety
Q: “How long will it take to get this Health & Safety system in place?”
Depending on whether or not you have health & safety disciplines in place, your commitment, plus, the size and complexity of your business, within 3 - 6 months the basics should be in place
You can accelerate your progress by completing your to-do list earlier. You set the pace.
Q: “How much of my time will this take?”
Short and sharp meetings with your consultant (approximately one hour)
Most likely you’ll be allocated some homework following each meeting
Q: “Who is responsible for H&S? Just the H&S co-ordinator? Just management? Just the employees?”
Every single person in your organisation is responsible. For example:
Owners/Directors: Your governance role means you need to ensure the business has the resources to operate safely. The new law increases your responsibilities (and penalties).
Management/Supervisors: You need to ensure your teams follow the policies and procedures in place. What training is needed to ensure competency?
H&S co-ordinator: You take action and make the improvements detailed in the H&S plan
Wardens: You are trained for emergency situations. When did you do a drill last?
H&S representatives: You represent the employees on your H&S committee
Your Securo H&S consultant: Our primary role is to facilitate the implementation of your customised H&S system
