It is inevitable for companies to provide a safe working environment, because if any accident occur, the company should produce a proof that H&S procedures had been adhered to on their part. A survey amongs the employees might be useful to evaluate the company's strengths and weaknesses regarding to H&S in order to improve any areas where it would be necessary and share the results with all the stakeholders. This would also enhance knowledge sharing and 'lessons learned'.
I have already done my PMA a week ago, but there are new things coming to my head regarding to H&S. For example, an asset management H&S software would allow companies to maintain asset maintenance and inspection records, and issues about different equipments. This can apply to any assets like registration, testing, inspection, different records of licences or certificates, ect. A software like this would reduce potential risks, would improve the company's time management, anyone could easily access to the company's H&S policies and procedures, it would improve efficiency and taking actions, it would help managing and maintaining the company's assets. Now I should add this thoughts to my PMA... lol
Risk assessment is a part of Health & Safety by taking into account potential risks that might occur, measuring and reporting them, controling them and communicate safe working practices. By reading this the DMAIC cycle came into my head from Six Sigma which would be a good strategy to use to imrove the company's H&S processes and problem solving capability. Additionally, by capturing incidents and learning from them, the company can support management of change and continuous improvement. Again, everything links to everything...EFQM, SOPK, PDSA, DMAIC hand in hand.
