Safetymen can help with Health and Safety Policy preparation to meet the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. Health and Safety Policies includes Procedures, including General Health and Safety Policy Statement, the Organisation and the Arrangements.
We can draft your Health and Safety Policies and procedures from scratch, or we can update existing material.
We will provide you with useable documentation to help you comply with the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, which require all employers to effectively plan, organise, control, monitor and review their health and safety systems and procedures.
All employers and the self-employed are required to undertake Risk Assessments on all their activities. Where employers have 5 or more employees they must record the significant findings of the risk assessment.
Our practical Risk Assessments give you clear, cost-effective advice on how to make your workplace safer and more productive while meeting your legal obligations. Our services are flexible and tailored to meet your needs. We can provide a full health and safety Risk Assessment of your premises or carry out specific Risk Assessments.
Safetymen are able to undertake these Risk Assessments and ensure that the assessments take into account the requirements of current Health and Safety Legislation.
What is a Method Statement? A work Method Statement, sometimes called a "Safe System of Work", is a document that details the way a work task or process is to be completed. The Method Statement should outline the hazards involved and include a step by step guide on how to do the job safely. The method statement must also detail which control measures have been introduced to ensure the safety of anyone who is affected by the task or process.
You have probably noticed that Method Statements are more and more these days being requested by organisations of all sizes and in all industries. The reason they do this is so they can comply with Health and Safety legislation which requires them to make suitable and sufficient enquiries as to the competence of any organisation they contract to carry out work.
Method Statements are frequently requested as part of a tender process which allows the company to gain an insight into your organisation and the way it operates. They allow your company to demonstrate how it can provide goods and services in a safe and high quality manner. For this reason Method Statements become another brochure for your company and it is necessary to have well presented documentation to gain a competitive advantage over your competition.
Safetymen can help you design Method Statements (please note if you are a retained client you will receive templates for Method Statements and we will assist you with the completion on these).
If you are unsure about Method Statements or maybe you simply don't have the time to do them, contact us.
