The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidance book, Successful Health and Safety Management (HSG65)1 has the framework for managing health and safety and provides guidance on:

  • Planning for health and safety
  • Accident and incident investigation
  • Health and safety auditing

It is aimed at directors and managers and should also help supervisors. Much of the information will be of interest to small and medium-sized firms. This approach to managing health and safety is tried and tested. It has strong similarities to quality management systems used by many successful companies. It can help you protect people and control loss.
