HEALTH AND SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
  
Successful health and safety is dependent on a management system that will effectively control the health and safety risks generated by an organisation.
 
British Health and safety management systems have tended to be  based on the Health and Safety Executive's health and safety guidance 65 (HSG65).  Adherence to the standards set out in HSG 65 helps to ensure compliance with legislative requirements.
 
Other management system approaches can be used including the BS OHSAS 18001 standard, which provides assistance for establishing, implementing and improving occupational health and safety management systems.  It is a certifiable standard which allows organisations to demonstration to stakeholders their commitment to health and safety.
 
The key elements of a successful health and safety management system include; a health and safety policy, organising & planning, implementation & operation, checking & corrective action (auditing) and reviewing performance.
 
The importance of having a suitable and sufficient health and safety management system cannot be over emphasised.  Benefits include:
 
  • Improved health and safety performance
 
  • Reduction in production downtime caused by accidents
 
  • Improved employee morale and relations
 
  • Easier contract pre-qualification
 
• Reduced costs associated with accidents and property damage
 
• Awareness of legislative duties.
 
• Reduced absenteeism caused by occupational ill health
 
• Reduced risk of adverse publicity
 
Organisations that cannot demonstrate a verifiable health and safety managements system could be leaving themselves open to enforcement action and potential prosecution.
