The monitoring of health and safety within an organisation is an important part of maintaining compliance with health and safety legislation, including the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
Monitoring can be re-active or pro-active:
Re-active is after an incident has occurred, including the monitoring of accidents the organisation had or as promoted by legislation and the enforcement authorities.
Pro-active monitoring includes the daily checks undertaken by Supervisors, weekly inspections by Managers, inspections by the Competent Persons for the organisation and annual reports of the complete management procedure.
Where organisations are seeking to gain SSIP accreditation such as C.H.A.S. S.M.A.S and Construction line evidence of the implementation of the above is required.
Where organisations require assistance in the monitoring arrangements this can be arranged with site inspections, which includes the issue of a comprehensive report both to the site and the point of contact within the organisation.
