This site is mainly for leaders, owners, trustees and line managers. It will particularly help those who need to put in place or oversee their organisation’s health and safety arrangements.
The advice may also help workers and their representatives, as well as health and safety practitioners, and training providers.
As well as guidance on legal duties, you will find examples of evidence to look for when deciding if you are doing enough to manage for health and safety effectively.
HSE has moved away from the POPMAR (Policy, Organising, Planning, Measuring performance, Auditing and Review) model of managing health and safety to Plan, Do, Check, Act.
The move towards Plan, Do, Check, Act achieves a better balance between the systems and behavioural aspects of management. It also treats health and safety management as an integral part of good management generally, rather than as a stand-alone system.
Employers have to consult employees, either directly or through appointed or elected representatives, on health and safety matters.
By following this guidance, you will help your organisation find the best ways to lead and promote health and safety, and therefore meet its legal obligations.
