What are your hot topics for health and safety at the moment?
With some sunny weather at last what could be better than to reflect on the prevailing themes of health and safety management over a nice cold glass of something – I’ll leave you to decide what.
Well the warm weather has also brought a clutch of themes out of the woodwork as far as health and safety relates for me and these have come from diverse a range of events as a seminar, a sales call, a customer meeting with an insurer and an enforcement officer.
What struck me however was the similarity of the core themes of each discussion, which centred on four recurring aspects, but were all approached from a different positions. These were:
- Control of contractors;
- Senior management buy in;
- Training/education; and
- Management information
In combination they do paint a picture that may again be worth pondering over another glass of something cold – once more I’ll let you decide what.
