Consultancy Services Health & Safety Policy and Procedures
Current health and safety legislation progressively demands that safety procedures and safety plans are clearly documented. To that end Callsafe Services Ltd is experienced in the preparation and development of the following:-

Company Safety Policy
The Health and Safety at Work Etc. Act 1974 requires any company that employs more than 5 people must have a written policy in respect of their health and safety. Callsafe Services Ltd will investigate the way in which a company operates and after agreement with the management, write the policy on safety and health. In this way clients have clear ownership of the policy.

Health and Safety Procedures
Health and Safety Procedures which are tailored to the client’s needs are produced so that standards of accident prevention are clearly defined, together with the machinery for their implementation.

Permits to Work
Permit to work systems are a familiar management tool used to enhance the safety of hazardous operations. Consultants can develop the permit to work system tailored to each company and covering such areas as:-

·         Confined Space Entry
·         Mechanical and Electrical Isolation
·         Hot Works
·         Excavation
·         Temporary Works
·         Works Commencement Certificates

Safety Handbooks
Employees safety handbooks are used as a reference by employees who have to work to the standards defined by the safety procedures. These are produced as an extension of the safety procedures and complete the package of documentation required.

Safety Audits
Safety audits are carried out in a number of different ways and at a variety of levels within client organisations.

Management Safety Audits
Consultants will visit the client’s premises and will evaluate the way in which the Company is structured with regard to the management of safety and health issues. The audit will consider such matters as:-

·         the existence and quality of the safety policy, published safety procedures and other safety instructions which may have
been established.
·         the understanding that managers and non-supervisory staff have of their responsibilities towards accident prevention and occupational ill-health.
·         the way in which senior management monitor the company performance in safety and health.

At the conclusion of each audit, a comprehensive report is submitted to the client.

Workplace Inspections
Consultants visit premises as a one-off exercise or at agreed intervals in order to carry out workplace inspections in conjunction with the local management. A report is issued for action by the site management. During such visits, time is devoted to discussing future operations and assisting with the planning so that hazards can be anticipated and avoided. If required, Callsafe Services Ltd place consultants on premises on a full time basis for both long and short term commissions.

Risk Assessments
Safety legislation requires formal assessments to be carried out in a wide variety of areas. Callsafe Services Ltd provides expertise to make such assessments in areas such as:-

·         Work at heights
·         Traffic management
·         Working around and over water
·         Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH)
·         Manual Handling
·         Display Screen Equipment (Visual Display Units)
·         Noise
·         Workplace Health and Safety

·         Asbestos
·         Fire
