My rough notes typed up – hopefully they make some sense.
This is following the NEBOSH Unit D Guide – downloadable from their website.
1. Assignment Brief
It’s for management. To examine a work area and review current systems in place for managing risks and H&S recommendations and identify shortcomings in system.
Identify hazards/risks and shortcomings and prioritise remedial action and to convince management to take action.
2. Structure of the Report
A detailed review of the health and safety performance of your chose company and to produce a justified action plan that will improve the health and safety of the company.
The objectives are the actions that will ensure that the aim of the report is met. To ensure that the aims are manageable if you were to impose the recommendations across a multi site operation.
Methodology is where you went, what you saw and how you collated the information.
Description of the Organisation
What the business does
Where they are based
What site – single site or multi site
How many people
Unionised – H&S Reps?
Don’t give a description of HASWA, MHWR, WHSR etc instead describe how various pieces of legislation impacts on your company in terms of Criminal, Statute, Civil, Breach of Statutory Duty things like COSHH, PUWER - what does your company do to comply?
Review of H&S Management Systems
Description of H&S Management System and Gap Analysis
Give a brief (paragraph) description of the management system in your organisation and how it applies there. What is in place and what are the shortfalls in the system i.e. compare either HSG65 or 18001 to what you have in your company and how you either comply/not comply with it and how you propose to comply.
It is probably an idea to do the summary of the Gap Analysis in a table format.
