Management Assessment Tool for SMEs (MAST)


This toolkit, produced through trials by Wales/South West Local Authorities and HSE Partnership team, contains guidance to assist LA enforcement officers and HSE inspectors assess the performance of the management of health and safety of dutyholders. 


The kit is intended for use with SMEs.  However, although the generally accepted definition is less than 250 employees, the pragmatic measure is the degree of complexity of the management system.  So there is in fact no upper employee limit for the application of the tool.
