At a basic level Wholesale Howie Long Jersey , suitable and sufficient means that the risk assessment you carry out is reflective of the scale of the task and the documentation contains enough detail to allow the job to be carried out. This risk assessments webinar explains the concept in even greater detail for HSCE managers looking for in-depth guidance.
Think beyond safety
Health is sometimes the poor relation when it comes to Health and Safety. In the UK, we e far better at managing safety than we are areas like ill health and damage. Make sure that your assessment is wide enough to cover health based issues, not just things that can cause injury. Stress, noise and vibration are all real concerns for your employees and you should be ensuring that you cover these areas in your risk assessment. Issues around wellbeing are often addressed elsewhere, but you have an opportunity to identify areas where staff wellbeing can be improved.
Don go overboard
While it may seem intuitive that the more detailed a risk assessment Wholesale Bo Jackson Jersey , the more comprehensive and better it is. That not always the case. It is no exaggeration to say that there are risk assessments for office use of Blu Tack or Pritt Stick that are nearly 10 pages! Size is not always indicative of suitability. Produce risk assessment documentation that is proportionate to the job and the risks.
To some it may seem like common sense, but in reality not every process and activity in your business needs to be risk assessed. For the purposes of your risk assessment, insignificant risks and everyday tasks associated with life in general can be ignored (unless your activities significantly increase that risk). Leaving things out of your risk assessment takes confidence and you shouldn be afraid of leaving these low risk areas out. Put your energy in to the real risks that your colleagues face because those are the things that are likely to cause serious harm.
Concentrate on the results
We carry out risk assessments because we want to make our businesses and workplaces safe and healthy places in which to work. Micro managing every operation, including changing printer toner and stapling documents can often undermine the objective. If nothing else, having to follow hundreds of procedures and wade through thousands of sheets of paper does little to reduce stress. Your risk assessment should be uitable and sufficient鈥?for you to achieve your objective Wholesale Marshawn Lynch Jersey , but straightforward and easy to understand.
And don get bogged down in details, without documenting the ultimate goals of the procedures. If you create documentation without outlining your objectives then your assessments have neither context nor meaning. That is neither suitable nor sufficient.

This article, Job Security in Today's Workplace, is part of AlphaMeasure's compilation, Tales from the Corporate Frontlines. It tells the story of a manager who decides to look for ways to bolster the morale in his company when it crashes after an extensive layoff.
I've worked for the same company for ten years now. At the end of last year, we reorganized Wholesale Gareon Conley Jersey , and in the process, over 10% of the workforce was terminated. In the wake of the layoffs, morale hit an all time low. My colleagues in upper management were becoming especially depressed. Every meeting I attended began with a discussion about low morale and productivity, complete with a round table of horror stories to illustrate the nightmare.
Our company couldn't afford to see this happen---we'd just restructured out of financial necessity.
Sick of hearing the horror stories and dire predictions for the company's future, I decided to do a little research; I was sure that I could find at least one solution to the declining morale problem. At the next staff meeting Wholesale Reggie Nelson Jersey , I'd pass what I learned along to my colleagues. The big question was: What could the company do to heal the hard feelings created by the layoffs and restore a sense of security? Here are some of the answers I found by reading through magazine articles, newspapers, websites, etc.:
* First of all---be honest with our employees. They are smart enough to know that NO employer is going to issue a written guarantee of job security for any length of time. Employers that address the future dishonestly only fuel more feelings of mistrust and insecurity.
* Encourage employees to take advantage of available company sponsored training. A broad based skills set makes them more adaptable to changing conditions and more valuable to the company.
* Empower employees by encouraging individual responsibility. When they feel that they are making a real contribution, employees are more confident and worry less about job security.
* Encourage networking. If by chance the worst does come to pass Wholesale Amari Cooper Jersey , employees can build a safety net by keeping in touch with business associates, sales reps, suppliers---all professionals in their field who may become valuable contacts later on.
* Provide a means of record keeping. People rarely update their resumes unless they are forced to use them. Find a way to help employees keep record of new skills mastered, courses, seminars and workshops completed Wholesale Jared Cook Jersey , so that this information is accurate and close at hand if needed.
