I obtained the company’s Health and Safety Policy, inspection reports, accident statistics and investigations, permits to work (PTW), statutory thorough examination reports and disciplinary actions taken regarding Health and Safety etc, and analysed these documents.

I attended monthly management meetings and used these meetings to take notes and measure the importance and commitment given to Health and Safety in relation to other business objectives, such as purchase, production and profit. Senior management informed me that they based their current HSMS on HSG 65. (1)

I randomly selected 20 employees across the company and issued a Health and Safety attitude survey based on the current HSMS, to which all 20 employees responded. (2)

Finally I worked in the workshop for 2 weeks alongside employees. This gave me the opportunity to measure compliance with the company’s policies and procedures along with the relevant statutory requirements.
