What are they?
Safety files show safety methods.
The short explanation...
Safety files are a set of SITE SPECIFIC documents that shows the steps you have taken to ensure that, as a result of your company activities on a project, none of your employees nor other persons, will have their health affected nor incur injury as a result of those activities, nor the activities of others.
How can you achieve this?
We create a file with MANY different sections covering a range aspects:
Employees and their training
Appointments – Who is responsible for what?
Policy – What has management decided about how the company will operate?
Procedures – How will things get done safely?
Hazard and risk – Identify them, and state what is going to be done to reduce or eliminate them.
Working at height – what to do so nobody falls.
Education – The key to safer sites.
Incidents and Accidents – What to do if they occur. How to avoid a repeat incident.
Registers and checklists – Are tools and equipment in good condition, and fit for purpose?
