       Safety Briefings that stress safety when giving work
       Encouragement via a reward scheme or ‘pat on the back’

   Cradle to grave approach to a specific task
   Identify and evaluate the risks involved in that task
   Break down the task into sections

   Evaluate each section and decide on the control
    measures necessary to reduce the associated risks

       Hazards - Risk - Likelihood - Severity
       Practicable or Reasonably Practicable
     Inspections & Audits

   Used in potentially high-risk industries such
    as a petro-chemical plant
   Based on what if questioning - What if:

       The pump fails?

       The flow rate detector mis-reads?

       The gas supply is interrupted?
          Why Monitor?

   ‘Every employer shall make and give effect
    to such arrangements as are appropriate,
    having regard to the nature of his activities
    and the size of his undertaking, for the
    effective planning, organisation, control,

    protective measures’

 Proactive - The systematic inspection
 of plant and premises. Checking to
 ensure that your standards are being
 Reactive - Something has gone wrong.
 Standards have not been maintained or
 a control measure has failed.
   Proactive - look at what is actually happening
    compared to what is written in plans and standards.
   Reactive - events direct us to look again at control

A safety audit is: A thorough, systematic and critical
  examination of safety management systems and
 It should:
        Asses the quality & implementation of the
         safety policy
        Identify potential risks and their associated
         control measures
        Analyse workplace activities and assess if they
         are being carried out safely

       Following notifiable accident or dangerous
       Following notifiable disease
    Proactive Monitoring
             Safety Survey
   A safety survey is a detailed investigation of one
    aspect of the workplace. Could be a survey of:





           Fumes    and/or Vapours
    Proactive Monitoring
               Safety Tour

Prioritising Results - Action Plan

        Likelihood x Severity = Risk Rating
   Urgent - Requiring immediate action
   Routine - Requiring action over a period of time
   Football Club Urgent:
          Wiring for lights in the shower room
          Use of equipment
   Football Club Routine:
          Soakaways from the showers
          Improved system for control of contractors
           Audits & Inspections

   Depends on the workplace environment and the
    nature of the associated hazards. Rule of thumb:
        Audit - Annually or every 2 to 3 years

        Inspections - More frequently (monthly or every
         few months)
    Note: Frequency should be detailed in the company
                          safety policy
         Report Writing
   Senior Mangers need to know what they
    need to do, by when & how much it will cost
   Use executive summaries
   Findings linked to an action plan (SMART)
   Spread responsibility for action
   Have an different person for each action to
    ensure action plan is completed & progress
    is monitored
