In everyday life we all identify potential hazards and choose a safer way of doing things; Is my shower too hot? Shall I carry a supermarket basket or take a trolley? Is this pavement too icy for me to walk on? (You get the picture.)
Two of Sodexo’s seven Safety Nets focus on simple risk assessments and safe systems of work, but when the usual routines are disrupted, especially under current circumstances, not taking the appropriate steps or keeping up-to-date can put everyone at higher risk of accidents and injuries.
Avoid skating on thin ice this January by keeping up-to-date with HSEQ changes and reviewing your risk assessments regularly.
As an important example, Sodexo’s Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) policy and process has recently been updated to include the legal requirements for health monitoring and surveillance. If you use hazardous substances at your site, please make sure to review your risk assessments to help you identify whether you need to implement health monitoring and surveillance.
To remind yourself and others of the importance of risk assessments, please download this week's Safety Moment which outlines five tips for completing them. It will help to keep you, your colleagues, clients and consumers safe.
Let's all remember to Start Safe, Stay Safe.
