FAQ's | Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do we need an employee with a formal H&S qualification? No, our Competent Person Service takes care of that. By appointing Safeti as your competent H&S advisor, you immediately retain the qualifications and experience of our H&S professionals. We keep our knowledge and professional development up-to-date via 3rd-party accredited CPD (Continued Professional Development).
  2. What is the Health and Safety system? We have developed and continue to improve a H&S document suite which will help tick all the right boxes for your business. It includes examples, guidance and training that can be adjusted and adopted specifically for your operations.
  3. What happens to our existing documentation? It often doesn’t make sense to remove what you already have. Rather, we normally advise reviewing your existing documentation to help you integrate it into your new management system. Some of our Health and Safety packages include a ‘Desktop Review’ service which enables this process.
  4. Do you provide H&S training? Our health and safety packages provide you with excellent training materials for general Health and Safety good practices e.g. risk assessment, accident investigation, contractor management, machinery safety & more. Also, you will have unlimited access to our online Risk Assessment training course with dedicated support for enrolees.
  5. Will the package help with external accreditation e.g. CHAS, Acclaim, Safe-T-Cert? Our H&S system is accreditation-ready. The support you receive includes guidance & advice from Chartered professionals for any of your questions/needs for your accreditation to be successful.
  6. Can you help with task-specific documents? A wide range of examples are included in your document system; if we don’t have a generic document that you need, we will create it for you for free! Some of our offers include a monthly (limited) document review service. Task-specific documents may require additional fees to be charged.
  7. What if I need H&S advice? You will access to health and safety advice during normal business hours. If on a premium package, you will have a personally assigned H&S Advisor for your business.
  8. What about ongoing support after the initial period? If you purchase one of our exclusive online offers you will qualify for our preferred, low-cost retention offers available after your initial period (12 months) is expired.
  9. How quickly can your perform a desktop review? Some of our health and safety packages include a desktop review and personalised integration into your new H&S document system. From receipt of documents from the Client, our execution target is completion within 5 business days.
  10. Will I still need an in-house H&S Advisor? Employing a part-time or full-time member of staff for health and safety can be costly and not entirely necessary from many small businesses. Equally, while you may not require one today, it may make sense in the future. Our Services can be used both as a standalone H&S representation, or act as a compliment/support to existing H&S resources within the business. 
  11. How do I use my 15% Consultancy discount? If you choose our Pro package, you will immediately qualify for discount for any additional support services and/or consultancy time that you require. Standard day rates will apply according to business type/size.

Health and Safety Management Systems have long been adopted as a means of reducing organisational risk, fostering a culture of safety and improving productivity. ​ 

Managing health and safety can be a serious time burden and an administrative malaise. For our Client’s, we advise that they kept it as simple as possible.

Outsource Health and Safety | Safeti

You don’t need to go to the extent of putting an all singing, all dancing management standard (with considerable ongoing costs) to get the benefits of robust and reliable system. 

In a workplace climate that values employee health, a proactive approach is needed to maintain health and safety performance. 

Failure to take responsibility for occupational health and safety within your organization could lead to serious consequences, not only do you risk large financial penalties, but you risk the safety/health of your workers.

Setting the right framework for growth is key, allowing a business to grow without exposing it to unnecessary risk. A good H&S management system can help you do that.

What is a Health and Safety Management System?

A formal Health and Safety system or management framework is a set of processes and procedures that help you manage health and safety risk in your business; it’s your decision whether to use one or not. Depending on the sector you are operating in e.g. construction, it may be a mandatory minimum requirement for tender purposes.

Although the language and methodology vary, the key actions can usually be traced back to the Plan, Do, Check, Act framework, referenced in the HSE’s HSG65 management document.

Health and Safety Documentation

Health and safety documents should be functional and concise, with the emphasis on their effectiveness rather than sheer volume of paperwork.

Focusing too much on the formal documentation of a health and safety management system will distract you from addressing the human elements of its implementation – the focus becomes the process of the system itself rather than actually controlling risks.

Health and Safety Management Systems Framework

There is no right or wrong way to create a management system framework. However, there are various standards that has been developing that act as a useful yardstick for your own system.

Regardless of the type of system you adopt, there are certain elements and/or information that all systems typically possess.

For example;

  • Identification of legal and other requirements e.g. Legal Register
  • A clear structure for authority and responsibility i.e. Organisational Structure
  • Measurable objectives for improvement e.g. Health and Safety Policy
  • A structured approach to managing risk e.g. Risk Assessment
  • A planned and documented approach to health and safety e.g. Health and Safety Statement
  • The monitoring of health and safety issues and auditing of performance e.g. Audits

Key elements of a Health and Safety Management system

Health and Safety Management System | Safeti

Across different business-types and sectors, effective health and safety management systems apply a risk-based approach which considers the specific hazards and risks that exist from the business operations.

For a health and safety system to be successful, strong leadership and management is needed. This includes building an informed, trained and competent workforce that can operate within a culture of honesty and transparency. 

A truly effective health & safety management system establishes and maintains a culture of safety that permeates the entire organization.

The attitude and behaviours of management and workers must exhibit a strong commitment to a safer work environment, whilst taking into consideration the other factors that are important to the business e.g. quality, efficiency. 

Benefits of a Health and Safety Management System

There are numerous benefits of having a formal health and safety system and following good practices in the workplace.

UK law says that every business must have a policy for managing health and safety.

Putting a formal system in place makes it easier for you to set expectations for your employees. Positive outcomes result from employer’s taking ownership of their duty of care for their employees and anyone else who may be on their premises. These include;

Benefit 1 | Protecting your staff

Following health and safety guidelines is primarily to protect employers and their staff from injury, illness or coming into any other form of harm in the workplace.

One of the main benefits of following health and safety practices is to prevent common workplaces injuries & illness such as back pain, falling from height, asthma, injuries from slips and trips and asbestos-related illness.

Maintenance - How to Identify hazards
Benefit 2 | Reducing absences

Following health and safety guidelines and maintaining a safe work place will reduce the risk of work-related illnesses and injuries, and therefore reduce staff absences. Employers therefore also save money on the direct costs of absences, such as paying salaries.

How to identify hazards
Benefit 3 | Improving productivity

If your colleagues and employees are able to work in a safe environment, this will improve morale and overall productivity. It is difficult to argue that happy and motivated staff won’t be more productive than those who feel like their well-being is low priority.

Benefit 4 | Saving money

By maintaining health and safety practices in the workplaces, and therefore reducing absences and improving productivity, you will be saving money by retaining staff.

Money spent on absences and recruitment processes will decrease, and the business’ profits will increase.

Health and Safety Management System Benefits
Benefit 5 | Protecting the business

The other major reason to pay good attention to your health and safety obligations is that the regulator, the Health and Safety Executive, and the courts have immense power to punish individuals and companies who are not taking their obligations seriously.

Now you are aware of the benefits of a strong health and safety management system, let’s take a brief look at what might be included in it…

What might a Health and Safety Management system include?

Not all Health and Safety Management Systems are the same, and nor should they be. These aren’t all of the areas that we include in our management system, but some of the key element’s that may be included;

H&S Policy and Key Objectives

The law in the UK says that every business must have a policy for managing health and safety.

A health and safety policy sets out your general approach to health and safety.

It explains how you, as an employer, will manage health and safety in your business. It should clearly say who does what, when and how.

If you have five or more employees, you must write your policy down. If you have fewer than five employees you do not have to write anything down, but it is useful to do so.

The H&S policy forms the top level of your H&S management system and within it, you’ll want to set some high level, specific objectives & targets for the business.

Organisational Structure + Roles and Responsibilities
Starting a new job: Existing Knowledge

Within your system, you will want to outline the responsibilities for health and safety across your business. In other words, the areas of responsibility, tasks etc. and who is delegated within your organization.

Take a look at the members of staff who are already helping you to execute health and safety measures and who’s got responsibility for implementing certain activities. That could be anyone, from workers on the shop floor, to health and safety professionals, project managers, engineers etc.

These responsibilities should be delegated throughout the organisation, from top to bottom. Even your Company Directors can/should be involved where applicable, depending on how you decide to delineate responsibility.

Just make sure that it’s clearly outlined and gives a good overview of where responsibilities lie.

H&S Statement/Arrangements

A H&S Statement document usually refers to a summary of the typical arrangements that you have in place to mange significant risks in your business. You will want to give details on the specific, practical measures that you have in place.

This information should be easily extracted from existing documentation such as risk assessments and method statements.

The purpose of the document is to act as an easy reference for any employees, clients or other stakeholders to understand what the company does to actively manage an reduce health and safety risk. 

The health and safety arrangements are often asked for during an audit for popular health and safety standards such as ContructionLine/CHAS/Safe-T-Cert.

Risk Assessment - Administrative Controls
Training and Competence

The Management of H&S Regulations require employer’s to provide workers with information and training on occupational health and safety.

As part of your health and safety management system, you will want to set the training/competence requirements for different roles within your organisation.

Once they have been established, it’s important to keep up-to-date records of all the appropriate qualifications and training completed by each employee.

This can include anything from University degrees to internal on-the-job training.

Risk Assessments & Method Statements

A health and safety risk assessment is simply a careful examination of what could cause harm to people.

By identifying the hazards that exist, you can determine whether the risks are adequately controlled.

This process allows a business to prioritise the actions needed to reduce the frequency of work-related injuries and ill-health. 

Risk Assessment Guide - Safeti

By assessing the risks to your business, you can make informed decisions on what you need to keep your operations running smoothly. But also, to do it in a way that prevents harm to people, the environment and of course, your business!

A method statement is a management document that outlines how a job will be carried out.

The method statement should describe, in logical steps, the specific actions that need to be taken to complete the task safely.

It is usually created by the person or group of people that are managing and/or conducting the work.

Whilst risk assessments and method statements (RAMS) are often referred to in tandem, method statements may be used as standalone documents. 

They are similar to Work Instructions (WI), Safe Working Procedures (SWP) and Safe Systems of Work (SSoW) – depending on your environment, these types of documents may also need to be developed.

Health and Safety Pro 9
Accident and Incident Management

An essential part of managing your H&S arrangements from an employee, client, insurance and regulatory perspective is monitoring and reviews adverse events.

Accident and incident recording and investigation forms an essential part of this process.

There are hazards in all workplaces; risk control measures are put in place to reduce the risk of accidents and cases of ill health to an acceptable level.

If an adverse event occurs, it may indicate that existing risk control measures are inadequate. At the very least, it’s an ideal time to re-assess the current state of controls.

Dangerous Occurrence RIDDOR

Learning lessons from near misses can be a great way to make your business more robust. As an employer, there are a myriad of reasons why you should investigate incidents and accidents in the workplace.
