Informing

What will this do for my organisation?

Your workforce will be more aware of risks and how they are controlled.

What do I need to do?

You must provide your employees with information on:

  • your risk assessment, including the protective measures you’ve taken;
  • how to deal with any potentially dangerous situations;
  • your specific requirements for temporary or vulnerable workers, e.g. pregnant employees etc; and
  • changes to workplace conditions or practices, e.g. new equipment or change in processes.

How can you do this?

There are various methods for different workplaces. Suggestions include:

  • providing information during your workplace induction process;
  • using images where possible;
  • carrying out briefings with your workforce to take account of site conditions and pass on information about changes;
  • using an interpreter and/or having information translated if necessary; and
  • involving your employees in all matters which affect their health and safety at work, eg risk assessments and operating procedures.
