• Health and Safety Policy

    If you employ over five (5) people the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 requires Companies to have a written Health and Safety Policy which must include:

    • Statement of General Policy - a summary of the Policy and includes provision for signature by the Responsible Person (e.g. the Managing Director).
    • Organisational Details - information relating to the Hierarchy of the Company and defines Responsibilities and Duties for key staff (such as Director(s), Managers, Supervisors, etc.).
    • Arrangements - specific arrangements that the Company has in place to deal with many workplace criteria such as Fire, First-Aid, Welfare, Accident Reporting, COSHH, Manual Handling, Work Equipment (WE), etc., etc.

    MD Safety Management develops bespoke Health and Safety Policies for Clients.

    We also offer a service to review existing Policies to ensure they reflect the operations of Client Companies within the complexities of the Health and Safety legal framework.

    The customised Policy will:

    • Identify control measures for working with Hazardous Substances.
    • Identify requirements for emergencies and accidental exposures and spillages.
    • Provide information to Employees relating to the Substances they are expected to use.
    • Demonstrate to Clients that Substances brought on to their premises are being controlled and used in a way that contributes to a Safe System of Work (SSoW).
    • Demonstrate to Enforcing Authorities (e.g. Health and Safety Executive (HSE), etc.), the Company's commitment to ensuring compliance with Health and Safety Legislation.

  • Contractor Control Policy

    If you employ Contractors as part of your operations of if you employ Contractors to work on your premises, for example, then you will need to satisfy yourself that they are competent.

    Your Clients are interested in ensuring that their supply chain is competent and the same will be true for your Company.

    MD Safety Management identifies Contractors that you use and then develops a specific Policy to reflect your requirements.  The purpose of this Contractor Control Policy is to demonstrate care in selecting Contractors to undertake work on your behalf.

    This is backed up by a specific Questionnaire and an Assessment Form so that you demonstrate due diligence in obtaining suitable and relevant information from.

    This can then lead to the development of an Approved/Supplier Contractor List.

  • Business Continuity Policy

    MD Safety Management's approach to Risk Management has resulted in the adoption of Business Continuity Planning (BCP). 

    This is necessary to mitigate the effects of specific disaster and failure events (e.g. fire, flood, communications loss, transport disruption, employee unavilability, utility failure, etc.

    Companies have to ensure that there is a clear management framework established and controlled around issues that will affect Business Continuity and MD Safety Management can establish a framework policy from which a strategy can be developed.

    Business Continuity Planning (BCP) can be defined as the:

    "creation and validation of a practiced logistical plan for how an organisation will recover and restore partially or completely interrupted critical (urgent) functions within a predetermined time after a disaster or extended disruption"
