Why do I need Drake Lapthorn?
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations require employers to implement arrangements to control and minimise health and safety risk. As a minimum employers should ensure that they are meeting their legal requirements under health and safety legislation.
Depending on your company needs there are various ways to ensure that health and safety is effectively managed, implement an in-house procedures, follow the HSE document HSG 65 or use the British Standard BS OHSAS 18001:2007 Occupational health and safety management systems.
Documentation should be functional and easy to understand, focus should be made on the human elements of the system and controlling the risks to your employees. The success of your health and safety management system will depend on the behaviour and attitude of all those employed by the company, whatever their business responsibilities.
