Simplifying Health and Safety Compliance
Maintaining workplace safety requires:
- Effective Systems and Processes;
- Trained Staff;
- Safety Behaviours;
- Leadership Commitment.
Effective Systems and Processes
Systems and processes need to be targeted towards practical and effective safety management. These systems and processes include the policies, procedures, organisational structure (including roles and responsibilities), and working conditions.
The skills and knowledge of the people working within the organisation must be such that they are aware of the possible risks associated with their activities and how to remedy them.
The behaviours of the people within your business need to be directed towards safety goals and have a focus on safety in every activity. This includes following procedures, questioning when things don't seem right, stopping when they are unsure and effective communications.
The people within your business also need to perceive that the business has a strong commitment to safety and there is a high level of management respect for a good safety attitude, which is evidenced in staff selection and promotion. The management style needs to be democratic, cooperative, participative and humane.
