An effective safety program is not only a
legal requirement; it promotes a well-organized, productive workplace that supports
employee job satisfaction.
In most jurisdictions, legislation
requires that a Safety Plan be established along with a Joint Health and Safety
Committee having trained Health and Safety Representatives. These representatives
must conduct regular inspections, have regular meetings, be closely involved in
investigations of incidents and accidents and be involved in the activities required
for maintaining a safe workplace. Senior management must play a clear leadership
role by endorsing policies and plans, integrating safety into the compensation
plans of managers and supervisors and ensuring that resources are available to
carry out Safety Plans.
Huntly Duff can advise you on the full
range of activities required to provide a safe work environment. Following a review
of your program we can:
- Outline what needs to be done,
model policies and plans,
- Identify cost-effective resources such as your industry
accident prevention association,
- Support your organization in job safety analysis
and employee training,
- Assist your safety committee with practical support
and guidance to committee members,
- Provide job safety analysis,
your supervisors or employees,
- Provide workshops on hazard identification
and accident prevention.
Our objective is to provide hands-on
training and support for your organization to implement or upgrade a Safety Program
and to maintain it with minimum outside support.
the past thirty (30) years, Huntly Duff has seen many expensive approaches that
do not work and has implemented some very cost-effective solutions that dramatically
improved Health & Safety.
