What is a Health and Safety Management System?
A Safety Management System is a proven method of reducing risk, maintaining a safety culture, and improving workplace productivity.
Every company should set out its policy for ensuring the health, safety, and welfare of its employees. At least annually, the entire Health & Safety Management System should be reviewed, together with all the risk assessments and safety inspections carried out during the year.
Like any other management system, the Safety Management System needs to be kept simple and practical. By committing time and effort to develop and implement a suitable Safety Management System, accidents and injuries can be kept to a minimum.
Is Health and Safety Management Systems a legal requirement?
It is a legal requirement for companies to have a formal Health & Safety Management System (SMS) in place. However, it should be remembered that the extent and complexity of a Safety Management System will depend upon a number of factors.
