Occupational safety and health is an extremely complex discipline, requiring due diligence and high priority. It embraces many requirements, which in turn require implementation of a suitable structure and creation of appropriate support publications.
The safety manual is of course central to this, but it is important that this portfolio includes suitable procedures, policies, and where applicable codes of practice. This should also be backed up with appropriate forms and employee guides.
The most well known support resource in this area is The Essential Safety Manual and Kit, which is an established toolset designed to address the above issues.
It includes the following items:
Risk Assessment Instructions
Safety and Health Policies
A Range of Support Forms
Codes of Practice
These are supplied in MS-Word format, to enable editing of the contents to suit individual needs. Is it for you though? Fortunately, the authors have created to specific website dedicated to the product, to enable viewing of sample pages and the tables of contents, to help you decide.
