Title: Managing Health and Safety
Post by: Plumber on April 23, 2009, 10:39:42 PM
This booklet provides guidance for those who have duties under the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992. It promotes excellence in the management of health and safety and gives advice on practical applications. In some cases what is recommended goes beyond the basic requirements of the Act.

The approach of this booklet is based on the premise that it is essential that any health and safety programme is integrated into the day-to-day operation of the business, and not considered as an add-on or something extra. The practices involved in managing health and safety at work are the same as those used in other critical areas of a business.
