Risk Assessments have been undertaken for all tasks completed. To ensure they are seen, they are given face to face by the trainer at the same time as the member of staff is instructed on how to carry out the work.
Data sheets and COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) assessments contain all the relevant information. They are stored centrally and available locally and form part of the training for any process. Operatives sign a sheet to prove acceptance.
All fire plans relevant to the buildings are briefed to all persons during their induction and layouts are displayed throughout the company. Annual assessments are undertaken by an independent company for the factories and the office assessments are carried out by the Health & Safety Administration Manager and Fire Marshals.
Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Assessments are completed by all new starters as part of their Health & Safety Induction. These assessments are also completed if a substantial change is made to an existing workstation (or the way it is used) or if there is any other reason to suspect they may no longer be valid, i.e., if the user starts to experience pain or discomfort.
First Aid training is recorded in the Training Matrix and adequate cover is available in all of our factories, although more people are going to be trained to provide even better cover for night shifts and possible COVID-19 self isolations.
