Last week we attended the Health and Safety Authority’s “Taking Care of Business” expo. An excellent event run in the new Dublin Convention Centre, Spencer Dock.
BeSmart Risk Assessment Launch:
The event launched the new “BeSmart Risk Assessment Tool” which we’ve been using and found to be a extremely useful tool. The tool helps you easily and quickly define a Safety Statement for your business alonside a Risk Assessment policy and action list. Produced by the HSA it outlines and complies with all the latest legislation here in Ireland.
You can login anonymously or create an account so you can use/update your statement on an ongoing basis.
Also at the expo we came across a number of other items of interest.
Health and Safety Review:
For this involved in managing any substantional operation the Health and Safety Review is a monthly publication on all cases and legislation updates.
Alongside demonstrations of sample environments Dublin Fire Brigade was available and thanks to them for the advice on correct use of Fire detection systems.
Enterprise Ireland was at hand to discuss funding for companies who are required to achieve Environmental Compliance for their products for export. So if you need ISO 9002 or ISO 14001 you should contact the Environmental Unit at Enterprise Ireland.
