Company Overview

The foundation of every Safety & Health Management System (SHMS) must include, at minimum, the following:

  • Policies and Procedures: Clearly defined and written
  • Training and Education: Not only on the above mentioned policies and procedures, but also discipline specific (i.e. forklift, trench, fall, etc.)
  • Verification and Enforcement: You must visit the jobs with a focus on safety to ensure that the policies and procedures are being followed and that the training/education has been retained.
  • Disciplinary Program: You must hold people accountable for not following the policies and procedures.

This is just the foundation as many other elements may need to be incorporated in to the SHMS in order to be effective.
