The DLA understands that it can be sometimes difficult for laboratory owners to meet all of the legal obligations and H & S is one area that is notoriously time-consuming to control. However, as an employer, you have a duty to protect your employee’s health, safety and welfare at work. You must ensure that the workplace is safe and without risk to health.
What the system includes:
- H & S Guidance & Procedures Manual – this contains written guidance and procedures for managing H & S within the laboratory.
- H & S Log Book – this contains various H & S templates and forms ready for you to complete.
- Implementation checklist – This is your starting point – to help you implement and amend the system effectively.
- Disk – containing template files
With the use of this manual, it is hoped that laboratory owners will gain more of an insight into their H & S obligations and can, therefore, be more protected against H & S incidents within the workplace.
