We are experts in the field of safety management and have built up a wealth of experience in design and implementation of effective safety management systems (SMS). Our consultants specialise in designing bespoke systems that are practical, helpful, sensible and concise.
Health and safety management systems are a formal framework designed to help you manage, mitigate, and control risks within your organisation. They incorporate effective policies, processes, and procedures, governed by a competent responsible person, to prevent and control risks.
An effective safety management system will have:
As well as complying with your in-house policies and sector-specific guidelines, there are several national and international standards that must be adhered to in order for your safety management system to be compliant, such as:
The Health and Safety Commission (HSC) has issued guidance on company annual reports. As of 2004, the report suggests that an organisation with more than 250 employees should address key issues within its annual report, including the effectiveness of systems for controlling risks.
Health and safety management systems should embrace all areas of your business, from strategy, finance, human resources, and marketing teams, through to product design, manufacturing, information management, and front-line staff.
Many successful organisations recognise the link between the identification and control of risk, the general health of their staff, and the success of their business. On that basis, they build safety management systems that are as integral to their organisation as any other business process.
We provide bespoke solutions for occupational safety, designing systems that fit with the way you want to run your business.
If your workplace already has an SMS, our experts can help you manage each element of your existing systems. We can write and train your people on new policies, ensuring that the systems are understood by all staff and are fully operational. We can also carry out a range of audits on your behalf, ensuring complete compliance and offering further support where needed, and provide assistance with planning for health and safety within your organisation.
We can help you to set up a h&s management system from scratch to meet your in-house objectives or achieve accreditation to a recognised standard like ISO 18001. We will support you from developing the initial concept of your safety management system, right through to achieving accreditation with external auditors.
Instead of complex and heavy manuals, we provide simple flow charts, visual aids and check sheets to record and implement a management system. This way they can be understood by all employees and easily put into practice.
For organisations who also have quality management systems such as ISO 9000, we can ensure that our design of your safety management system will be integrated rather than parallel to your existing format. This will avoid duplication, additional work and resources, and help to ensure that the system is put into practice smoothly.
