Role of a manager

Managers have the responsibility to provide leadership and to promote responsible attitudes towards health and safety.

Managers should consider the following:

•  How is health and safety included in the processes you have for running the business?

•  Are the health and safety responsibilities of key people set out?

•  Are these responsibilities reflected in people’s job descriptions?

•  How do you ensure access to competent advice?

•  How do you ensure health and safety information is communicated effectively within and beyond your organisation?

•  How do you control your contractors?

•  How do you review your health and safety performance?
