The 3 tips to create an effective health and safety management system are:

  1. Keep your focus on decreasing the risk when creating the needed documentation. It doesn’t matter how long or detailed the health and safety documents are if they aren’t functional. Remember, their effectiveness is your target.  
  2. Include your staff in the development and implementation of your health and safety management program. The people in your organisation are the ones that know best where the risks are and the potential hazards associated with their jobs. Therefore, make sure your employees are meaningfully participating in implementing an effective health and safety management system.
  3. Always measure the success of your HSE management system. It is not enough to just have such a system in place, you must review and improve it constantly. The best way to see if your health and safety management program is effective or not is to look at how your staff’s attitudes and behaviours have changed in time.
