Have you applied the correct procedures, mechanisms, and mechanisms to achieve the best working conditions and the health and safety of the workplace? Here are the top 10 occupational health and safety issues identified by ISO 45001.
Lack of documented processes
By documenting Occupational Health and Safety Procedures ( OH&S ) you can ensure that you meet the needs of employees and others. You must state your responsibilities in relation to health and safety, and by doing so you will provide a reference to interested staff and outsiders.
Regular review of occupational health and safety processes
The best way to check that the steps and procedures of occupational health and safety are properly followed is to conduct regular internal audits. Appropriate auditing procedures and timelines should be implemented and results should be analyzed to see if processes are improving.
Define occupational health and safety policy
You need to follow the right path in occupational health and safety. This process includes details of your company responsibilities and should reflect your organization’s commitment to continuous improvement and compliance, as well as a framework for setting health and safety goals. Your OH&S policy should be understood by employees and should always be implemented and maintained.
Set health and safety goals
It is important to determine the set of goals that your organization achieves in relation to occupational health and safety. These goals can be influenced or even defined by the legal, financial, operational and commercial requirements or potential risks to employees. Goals should be monitored regularly to ensure that they are achieved.
Announcement of health and safety measures
It is very important that health and safety information is established within occupations; Especially when changes are made. Consider using multiple locations, such as bulletin boards, company manuals, or intranet services. Other forms of communication include discussions, committee meetings, site meetings, and more.
Implement compliance registration and compatibility
Your organization must have a compliance record or similar document and meet your organization’s obligations to it. Registration should be reviewed regularly as part of the management review process and updated if necessary.
You should always have top management when it comes to reviewing information collected about health and safety. For top management, it is important to evaluate all opportunities and any changes needed, including updating policies and goals.
Accident handling to improve health and safety
While many organizations have a way of dealing with accidents, it is very rare for them to use this as a way to prevent future problems. Taking an active approach to close reporting of errors and examining how to prevent them in the future can lead to a better system and a more secure environment.
Emergency Preparedness and Response
As part of your company’s emergency preparedness process, a fire risk assessment for the site should be performed. This should be reviewed regularly and adjusted if necessary; Especially after making a change in location. It is also important that these emergency processes are tested at least once a year.
Prepare for risk assessment
Risk assessment should be done for all activities performed in your organization, regardless of location. For example, companies involved in site work may have already completed their project risk assessment; But they may be threatened at work by unforeseen circumstances.
