+/- Safety Statements:

Under Section 20 of the Safety, Health and Welfare Act 2005 every organisation is obliged to produce a Safety Statement. This includes all employers and self-employed persons. A Safety Statement shows commitment by management with regards to health and safety and should be prepared by a competent person. All too often Safety Statements are too generic in nature and do not fully address the requirements of an organisation.
It is produced to ensure the safety and health of its employees whilst at work and the safety and health of others who may be at the place of work. This would include visitors, contractors, customers and members of the general public.
A Safety Statement should specify the following details.

Specify how the safety and health of all employees will be secured and managed.
Specify the hazards identified and risks assessed.
Give details of how the employer is going to manage his or her safety and health responsibilities, including:
(a) A commitment to comply with legal obligations, in the form of a Safety and Health Policy.
(b) The protective and preventive measures taken,
(c) The resources provided for safety and health at the workplace,
(d) The arrangements used to fulfil these responsibilities include the plans and procedures to be used in the event of an emergency or serious danger.
(e) Specify the duties of employees including the co-operation required from them on safety and health matters include the names and job titles of people being appointing to be responsible for safety and health or for performing the tasks set out in the statement.
(f) Consultation with employees on health and safety matters.

The safety statement must be brought to the attention of the employees and to any other persons at the place of work who might be exposed to the specific risks outlined in the safety statement. When bringing the safety statement to the attention of employees, it must be in a form, manner and, if necessary, a language that can be understood by employees.
The Safety Statement should be reviewed at least on an annual basis to ensure it remains up to date with applicable legislation and to take into account any changes within an organisation.
At O'Reilly Safety Consultants we will ensure that your safety statement is professional, company specific and comprehensive in nature.

+/- Method Statements:
Every employer has a duty to provide a safe system of work for its employees. A method statement details how a particular task will be carried out and is most commonly used in construction / installation works. It details in a sequential manner how the works will be carried out. It must also specify the probable hazards / risks associated with the task and the control measures necessary to minimise the risk to employees and those who may be affected by the works.

+/- Risk Assessments:

Under Section 19 of the Safety, Health and Welfare Act 2005 employers are required to systematically examine the workplace and the activities within the workplace to identify hazards that are generated from the works. Hazards can be physical, health, chemical or biological in nature.

A risk assessment is simply a careful examination of what, in your workplace, could cause harm to people and an evaluation of whether the controls and precautions you have in place are adequate.
A five step approach to carrying out a risk assessment comprises the following:
Step 1: Identify the hazards
Step 2: Decide who might be harmed and how.
Step 3: Evaluate the risks and decide on precautions/controls
Step 4: Implement the controls and record your findings and actions
Step 5: Review your assessments regularly or when there is a significant change in the risk and update as necessary
Completing risk assessments is good for any business. It keeps employees safe, can have a beneficial impact on insurance costs. It will reduce lost production time and will improve the morale of employees.
At O'Reilly Safety Consultants we will ensure that your risk assessments are professional, task specific and comprehensive in nature. We can also help with the following specialist risk assessments:

Preliminary Health & Safety Plans
Under the 2006 Construction Regulations (S.I No 504, 2006) a preliminary health and safety plan is required to be produced by the Project Supervisor Design Process (PSDP) during the design phase of a project. The preliminary plan is prepared to provide the necessary and relevant information to those contractors who would be involved in the construction phase of a project.
Clients and designers are obliged to ensure that safety and health is taken into account before any construction works begin and are required to take account of "The General Principles of Prevention".

Construction Stage Health and Safety Plans
Under the 2013 Construction Regulations the Project Supervisor Construction Stage (PSCS) is required to produce a construction stage health and safety plan. The plan provides the blueprint for managing and co-ordinating health and safety during construction.
The plan will specify how the main health and safety issues will be managed on site. It must be specific to a particular project and the contents of the plan must be based on the information given in the preliminary health and safety plan developed by the PSDP. It will remain a live document for the duration of the project.
At O'Reilly Safety Consultants we will ensure that your construction health and safety plan is professional, task specific and comprehensive in nature.

+/- Accident Investigation:
All accidents should be investigated to enable organisations to determine and to understand how and why the accident occurred. If investigated correctly organisations should be provided with the necessary information to enable them to prevent a recurrence.
If a person is unable to attend work for a period of three consecutive days after the day of an accident it is then a legal requirement for the accident to be reported to the Health and Safety Authority (HSA). It is also a requirement of insurance companies for a detailed investigation to be carried out following an accident.
The benefits of investigating accidents are to:
• Prevent a recurrence.
• Make the workplace safer for all staff.
• Raise morale amongst staff.
• Avoid the costs of future accidents.
At O'Reilly Safety Consultants we can provide the expertise needed to carry out a comprehensive accident investigation. We will provide a structured approach in obtaining all relevant information. We will analyse the findings of an investigation and produce an action plan for implementation.
