As we approach the autumn and winter months, the Health & Safety North event is an excellent opportunity to stand back and consider what Health & Safety policies and procedures you have in place, and what staff training may be required.
Some things to consider are;
Induction – Have your employees had a health & safety brief? What to do in the event of a fire? What are their responsibilities?
DSE - Did your employees get a proper assessment of their desk? Is the screen the correct height? Is the chair set correctly?
Manual Handling – Do your staff members lift loads? Have they been correctly trained? Do they know the risks?
Risk Assessment - Are there any hazards in the working area? Are your staff, or any visiting members of the public, currently at risk? What about slips and trips?
Fire Evacuation - Do your staff know the evacuation plan and meeting points? Are they trained to use equipment such as Evacuation Chairs and Slider Mattresses?
It’s easy to make sure you’ve taken all the necessary steps not only to protect your staff and your customers, but also your company and its hard built reputation. Most businesses will be aware that strict penalties can be enforced for non compliance with current Health and Safety laws and pleading ignorance or a lack of funding for training will not be any form of defense.
At the show their sister company, Evacusafe UK, will be showcasing their range of specialist evacuation equipment, including their Tracked Excel Evacuation Chair, Ambulance /Transit Evacuation Chair and the new Evacuslider-
The ‘Health and Safety North’ event takes place at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton on Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th of October 2011. EH Systems, and sister company Evacusafe UK, will be situated at stand number 48.
