RICHMOND Home Improvement have just passed their eighth consecutive annual Health and Safety Compliance audit.
The HSG65 Audit and Review was carried out by Malcolm Pitcher of MSP Business Services, a specialist consultancy based in Bournemouth dealing with management, personnel and safety procedures and processes.
Malcolm said: ”All companies will already have various processes in place, and the management of health and safety is no different.
“To ensure compliance, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) nurtures a common-sense approach to managing health and safety which should form part of the everyday process of running an organisation and an integral part of the workplace environment” Malcolm added.
Regardless of industry, size or nature of an organisation, the core elements to effectively managing health and safety are:
The HSE advocates that all these elements, underpinned by understanding the profile of risks an organisation creates or faces, are needed.
Richmond Home Improvement Co Ltd already have several SSIPs in place which also enhance and underpin the Health and Safety requirements.
Allan Tofield of Richmond said: “Managing health and safety can rarely be achieved by one-off dabbling. A sustained and systematic approach is required, and a fundamental approach contains the steps Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA)
“By using the PDCA model, Richmond achieve the correct balance between systems and behavioural aspects of management. We also treat health and safety management as an integral part of good management generally, rather than as a stand-alone system.
“With the guidance of MSP we are pleased to again meet the stringent criteria of the Health and Safety Executive and I feel more companies should recognise the significance of embracing good risk management in the way that Richmond has done.”
