Workplace health and safety is not only a moral responsibility, it is the law. In Ireland, the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Applications) 2007 requires organisations to meet a range of compliance standards to help achieve optimum safety in the workplace. While requirements may change depending on your industry or the equipment you are using, legislative compliance is an all-round necessity. Failure to comply with the law can result in fines, operational restrictions and even imprisonment, so understanding what is required of your organisation is paramount.
Helping You Achieve A Safer And Compliant Workplace
In Ireland, workplace health and safety law stipulates that organisations have a duty of care for their employees and other stakeholders and must ensure they take steps to keep them safe at the workplace. To this end, they must carry out a Risk Assessment of their workplace to identity potential hazards and how to mitigate them. Organisations must also have a corresponding Safety Statement that is based on the Risk Assessment. The Safety Statement should specify how the organisation will provide for the safety and well-being of its employees, contractors, site visitors, and other stakeholders impacted by the organisation’s workplace operations. Employees also have a duty to comply with the organisation’s health and safety requirements that are detailed through formal policies and procedures. These may be communicated via workplace training, through internal communication systems and even in employment contracts. JHM Services can provide you with detailed advice and support to implement your regulatory responsibility and achieve compliance that ensures optimum safety at your workplace.
Our team also provides comprehensive support for workplace safety audits and inspections. These should be conducted at your workplace on a regular basis to ensure your organisation continues to meet compliance standards which are subject to change. Safety audits and inspections can also help identify new risks and hazards and provide advice for their rectification before they cause a problem at your workplace.
