3 QUICK CHECKS TOWARDS KEEPING HEALTH AND SAFETY SIMPLE AND RELEVANT

Returning to our theme of what give H & S bad press, how about if we turn that around? What can we do to make it relevant and positive?

What a great idea, but it does need some thought – but not much. 

For instance before thinking about, putting a rule or guideline in place, think:-

  • Is this really health, safety or welfare? Or is it something else?
    (If it is something else, don’t cite H. S. & W.)

  • It is health and safety. So is your method for managing the issue proportionate to the level of risk?
    (Don’t waste resources or relationships on trivia but you must invest in the rest)

  • And lastly, is there a system in place to allow people to challenge or contribute to these management of risk systems?
    (Quite often, people at the ‘sharp end’ know more about the experience than management. Listening is a great skill. Everyone can benefit)
