Failure to meet this fundamental business need will increase the likelihood of the loss of existing work or opportunity to tender for new business. Avoid these situations by employing the services of a trusted health and safety consultancy.
Introduction of Management Systems HSG-65 or BS OHSAS 18001
Internationally recognised Managing for health and safety (HSG65)
has become the standard of choice. The guidance within this standard explains the Plan, Do, Check, Act approach and shows how it can help you achieve a balance between the systems and behavioural aspects of management. It also treats health and safety management as an integral part of good management generally, rather than as a stand-alone system.
You have a legal duty to put in place suitable arrangements to manage for health
and safety. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
require employers to put in place arrangements to control health and safety risks. ISA can take your company through the certification process from concept to completion providing all documents and training along the way.
Plan, Do, Check, Act approach
Plan, Do, Check, Act helps you achieve a balance between the systems and behavioural aspects of management. It also treats health and safety management as an integral part of good management generally, rather than as a stand-alone system
- Plan: Recognize an opportunity and plan a change.
- Do: Test the change. Carry out a small-scale study.
- Check: Review the test, analyze the results, and identify what you’ve learned.
- Act: Take action based on what you learned in the study step. If the change did not work, go through the cycle again with a different plan. If you were successful, incorporate what you learned from the test into wider changes. Use what you learned to plan new improvements, beginning the cycle again.
