And this is from a company who you would otherwise think of as being on the ball.
Don't get caught out like this.
The things to do are to:
- Carry out a simple and sensible set of risk assessments including those for fire, substances hazardous to health, etc.
- Define control measures including those to keep you in control (such as periodic interlock checks).
- Implement a method of getting these across to the people who are affected.
Common mistakes are:
- Going completely over the top with assessments. You end up with a voluminous manual that nobody uses.
- Only looking at control measures that need to be done, and ignoring maintenance controls.
- Having a pristine set of risk assessments, but nobody on the shop floor knows anything about them.
