Concept to Completion

Health & Safety Support

The Health and Safety at Work Order 1978 and You.

All organizations employing five or more employees are legally required to undertake the following duties:

Provide a written health and safety policy statement

Detail in writing the organisational arrangements for carrying out its policy objectives

Identify and record significant workplace risks

Communicate these arrangements to its employees

Review these arrangements regularly

The purpose of this legislative programme is to reduce the incidence of injury and ill health to employees and other stakeholders who may be affected by your operations. The extent of your health and safety management system will depend upon two defining factors:

The size of your organisation

The complexity of your operations

Ballylough Consultancy can offer professional health and safety advice and guidance that is both cost effective and proportionate to the needs of your organisation.

Health & Safety Support

The Ballylough Health and Safety Management Standard

We have developed the Ballylough Health and Safety Management Standard to provide the platform upon which your organisation can build. Using your own industry knowledge and know-how we can work together to achieve a safe and healthy future for all employees, owners and customers.

We will be on hand to assist you and your organisation to achieve the highest standards of health and safety management and to help you to develop a positive health and safety culture that will enhance the commitment of your employees to work in a safe and healthy manner, promoting communication, co-operation and consultation.
