Managing for Health and Safety - Toolbox for all!
10 September 2013
For those of you that would like guidance on 'how' to manage Health and Safety, the HSE has published a web site recently that may offer you some assistance. As we all know, all organisations have a legal duty to put in place suitable arrangements. This site provides a framework to help you do that effectively, in a way that your organisation can tailor to your own circumstances. In implementing your arrangements, you should consult with your employees or their representatives, including trade unions where they are recognised.
The framework described in this site is universal but how far action is needed will depend on the size and nature of the organisation, and the risks from its activities, products or services. The Managing for health and safety web site offers a health & safety toolbox and other resources to assist you.
