Managing for health and safety (HSG65)
This revised edition of one of HSE’s most popular guides is mainly for leaders, owners 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.
The guidance explains the Plan, Do, Check, Act approach and shows how it can help you achieve a 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.
The revised edition has advice on:
- the core elements of managing for health and safety
- deciding if you are doing what you need to do
- delivering effective arrangements
- useful resources
You can find a brief summary of the refreshed guidance in the short leaflet Plan, Do, Check, Act: An introduction to managing for health and safety.
The revised guidance builds on the practical advice in The health and safety toolbox: How to control risks at work, which helps businesses identify, assess and control common risks in their workplace.
If you just need basic information or are getting started in managing for health and safety, then the best place to look is Health and safety made simple: The basics for your business.
