What Are The Five Steps to Managing Health & Safety? • Step 1 – You must start with a written standard • Step 2 – You must communicate to all employees what you are doing and why • Step 3 – You are required to train employees on the developed standard • Step 4 – You must evaluate your process / program • Step 5 – You must acknowledge success & make improvements
5-Steps to Managing Health & Safety Acknowledge Success & Make Improvements 5 1 Written Standard Evaluate 2 4 Communication 3 Training
Step 1 - Set Standards • Written statements outlining H&S expectations and policies • See Employer Guidelines • policy statements - management’s expectations and policies about health & safety • procedures - step by step instructions for particular tasks or processes • safe work procedures - written directions that include health & safety in the work processes • Include the points in the “Element Requirement Chart” • Meet minimum legal requirements • Current date and signed Health & Safety Standards should answer the 5 W’s and How
Step 2 - Communicate • General awareness of H&S elements • Ensure that everyone knows and understands what is expected of them and what they can expect of others • Many different ways to communicate: • staff meetings • safety talks • print or electronic notices – memos, newsletters, e-mails • Posters/notices • Payroll stuffer Maintain records of how you communicated each element
Step 3 - Train • Managers, supervisors and workers attain the knowledge and skill to work safely • Appropriate to their job duties and workplace • Various training methods: • During orientation training • Planned training sessions for specific staff • Demonstrations by supervisors • Observing another co-worker (mentoring or buddy system) Health & Safety Training records/certificates required for each element
Step 4 - Evaluate • Are your Safety Group standards working ? How do you know? • Compare actual workplace activities to your written health & safety standards and expectations • Is the standard working and achieving the desired result? • Keep track and document your evaluation process & analysis • There are many different ways to evaluate: • Analysis of observations/inspections/plant or job-site audits • Survey of employees – interviews or questionnaire • Statistical review & analysis - i.e. WSIB information • Review and analysis by JHSC • Management review and analysis • Third party assessment and analysis * Negative results is still evaluation !
Step 5 - Acknowledge Success and Make Improvements Based on results of your Evaluation: • recognize everyone who contributed to successful accident prevention activities by meeting and surpassing company standards • performance evaluations, letter/memo from president, health & safety awards, public recognition - i.e. coffee & donuts for JHSC and/or employees, staff meeting, banquet, newsletter article, bulletin board display • Develop an action plan to make changes and improvements where needed Safety Always
Action Plan • Clearly sets the plan for they year • Defines responsibility • Think about the finish line and make sure you can reach the objective. • Build in time for maintenance as well
Completing the Action Plan Group Element: New Employee Orientation Must Select 1 Element from Leadership Organization/ Hazard/ Assessment 1 Element 1 Return to Work Element 1 Other
Why, New Employee Orientation? • With the MoL’s introduction of the “Worker Health and Safety Awareness in 4 Steps” • It makes sense to look at your current “New Employee Orientation”, massage it it to ensure that it meets and / or adopt what the MoL is setting as the minimum standard for initial awareness training
New Regulatory Requirements The Ministry of Labour proposes to introduce new regulatory requirements that would require employers to ensure that all workers and supervisors complete mandatory occupational health and safety awareness training programs. The proposal would also allow for a transition period to allow employers time to ensure that existing workers and supervisors have completed awareness training programs before the proposed regulation comes into effect. It is anticipated that the proposed new regulation would be filed on or before July 1, 2013 and would come into force on January 1, 2014.
