Unsure about your Health and Safety responsibilities?

Let us do the hard work for you so you can concentrate on running your business!

Under Section 2 of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 employers are required to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of all its employees with particular reference to:

  • Safe plant and systems of work.
  • A safe working environment.
  • The provision of any necessary information, instruction, training and supervision.
  • A safe place of work with safe means of access and egress.
  • The safe use, handling, storage and transport of articles and substances.
An employer with five or more employees must also:
  • Prepare a written health and safety policy statement.
  • Identify the organisational arrangements for implementing the policy.
  • Revise and update the health and safety policy as necessary in line with new legislation, organisational changes and other external or internal factors.
                                           
If you are a small business of five employees or more and answer 'No' to any of the questions below you may be placing your staff and your business at risk. 
  1. Do you know what your Health and Safety responsibilities are?
  2. Does your company have an up to date Health and Safety policy?
  3. Have you identified all tasks and operations in your business that require a written risk assessment?
  4. Are all risk assessments in place, current and briefed out to staff?
  5. Are your staff competent to carry out their roles?

  9. Have you carried out a Fire Risk assessment on your business premises in the last 12 months?
  10. If your staff use Visual Display Screens are any of your staff designated as 'users' under the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992?
SEE Improvements can help your business manage health and safety in a proportianate way, providing cost effective and practical solutions that reduce costs, improve business performance and comply fully with current health and safety legislation.

Some of the services SEE Improvements commonly provide:

  • Site and area induction schemes developed and implemented.
  • Risk management and risk assessment provision and training e.g. general, DSE, manual handling, working at height, confined space.

  • Health & safety audits, inspections and tours developed or carried out.
  • Accident and incident investigation.
  • Manual handling awareness training.

For small business of approximately 5 or more employees we can help to put in place 'health and safety essentials'. Including preparation of a health and safety policy, carrying out of risk assessments (including DSE), fire safety training etc.

Another common use for our services would be to act as 'Competent Advisors'. Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, all organisations must appoint a Competent Person to advise on health & safety matters. This can be an internal function or external consultant. SEE Improvements can fulfill the role of Competent Person within your organisation and be named in your health & safety policy. We can then act to ensure that your company health & safety function is maintained to comply fully with current legislation.
