Safe Pass Course
We can arrange Safe Pass courses both in your workplace or at a neutral venue.
The FÁS Safe Pass Health and Safety Awareness Training Programme is to ensure that, over the course of time, all workers in construction will have a basic knowledge of health and safety, and be able to work on-site without being a risk to themselves or others who might be affected by their acts or omissions. From a health and safety perspective, construction workers are bound by law to hold a valid Safe Pass card.
The minimum class size for Safe Pass courses is 6 people.
What is a Risk Assessment?
Risk Assessments are carried out to create your Safety Statement and are a legal requirement under Section 19 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005.
A Risk is the chance or likelihood of someone being harmed by a hazard.
Once the risk has been assessed it is categorised as a low, medium or high risk.
Risk Assessments can also be carried out on any new equipment or machinery introduced to a work area.
Health and Safety Auditing
A Health and Safety Audit is an overall overview of your company's status with regard to health and safety. You will be provided with a detailed report of your company's health and safety status.
This Audit will look at:
A) Safety Procedures and systems in place
B) Safety Training
C) Documentation and Communication
D) Prevention and Control procedures
E) Information, Instruction, Training and Supervision
Why not give us a call and we will help you comply with and maintain standards under the 2005 legislation.
Safety Reviews should be carried out on at least an annual basis or when there are changes in personnel, changes in work procedures or for the introduction of new machinery.
The Safety Review will help you maintain the high standards in safety you have already set and are cost effective.
Ergonomic assessments are carried out on workstations where people sit at a desk all day in front of a computer, or are sitting or standing on a process line.
Many back injuries occur from incorrect postures and I cringe a lot of the time when I visit offices and see first hand the postures adopted at their respective workstations.
Most of these people will readily admit to having back or neck problems and having to attend Chiropractors and Physiotherapists. The solution to their problems is within their own grasp.
We will do an assessment of your workstation and remove the pain you have been inflicting on yourself which has in the past led to musculoskeletal disorders, visual fatigue, repetitive strain injury and physical stress levels.
