Safety Inspections are a valuable way to ensure that Health and Safety controls are operating effectively. Blackadder Health and Safety can provide on-site safety inspections, identify potential HSE violations, liability issues, and risk exposures, and offer strategies for mitigating hazards before they injure employees, damage assets or the environment and harm your company’s reputation.
In the UK, if you employ five or more people it is a legal requirement for you to have a written Health and Safety Policy. Blackadder Health and Safety can ensure that you have a legal policy in place that will also set the standard for Health and Safety Management within your organisation. Even if you employ fewer than 5 people it is still worthwhile having a written Health and Safety Policy as this will ensure that everyone understands the importance of good Health and Safety and recognises the standards they should be working to.
Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, it is a legal requirement for an organisation to identify any significant risks and to implement adequate control measures to combat these risks. If you have five or more employees it is also a requirement to record these risk assessments, however we would always recommend that any risk assessments are recorded.
Blackadder Health and Safety can assist you to carry out risk assessments and provide appropriate documentation for recording these. Blackadder Health and Safety follows the well proven and HSE approved “Five Steps to Risk Assessment” methodology and aims to ensure that the process of identifying and managing the hazards in your workplace is done efficiently and without excessive beauraucracy.
Blackadder Health and Safety can carry accident and incident investigations which help enable organisations to meet their moral and legal obligations and to learn from safety failure.
