Harries Human Resources
HEALTH & SAFETY SERVICES
If you have five or more employees you are required to have a written health and safety policy. A policy should detail your organisation and arrangements for health and safety along with a statement to show your commitment to effective safety within your organisation.
We specialise in putting together policies and employee handbooks which are as individual as you are. We also provide updates and reviews as required.
Health and Safety Audits
An audit is a structured process of gathering information on policies and procedures, assessing these against set criteria and putting together an action plan where standards need to be improved. Having an independent auditor of your policies and procedures means that you get a reliable, unbiased report of findings and an objective action plan for improvement. We can also formulate KPIs for health and safety arrangements of any clients that you may have.
Risk assessments are required under Regulation 3 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. These are required for your work activities and should be reviewed on a regular basis. We can help with both preparation and review for all your work activities.
Regulation 6 of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 states that COSHH assessments should be carried out for all hazardous substances used in the workplace. Again we can help with preparation and review of assessments.
Competence Assessment Preparation
There are many competence schemes available which help you to prove that your business has a commitment to health and safety management. Not only will we ensure that you have the required documentation in place, we can also assist in the application process.
Regulation 7 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 state that organisations should have access to competent health and safety advice and assistance.
We offer an annual retainer service to be the named health and safety advisor for your company and can put together a package for the level of service you require throughout the year. Please contact us to discuss the level of input you require.
