Health and safety is not only a legal requirement of any ongoing business, it is also important in maintaining morale of staff and also keeping them safe, which can reduce sick days and prevent litigation through accidents at work. In charge of H&S will be a health and safety manager or head of health and safety. Their job will be to keep in touch with the law and technologies surrounding the industry they are working in, performing inspections and ordering repairs, and to keep the staff informed about health and safety.
Logistics, with its heavy transport, warehouses, potentially hazardous materials and bulk goods, is inherently dangerous if the correct health and safety procedures are not observed. But even “safe” areas like offices require health and safety law to be implemented, and this will also form part of the health and safety manager’s role.
In large companies, the health and safety manager might be required to oversee several sires, and an in-depth knowledge of their H&S requirements will be required. The health and safety manager often has the power to shut down any part of a site he or she thinks falls below the required standards.
Instilling health and safety is often something of a persuasive skill, as it’s well known that workers get complacent and can often fall into bad habits. It will be up to the head of health and safety to make sure rules are observed, so good communication skills – informing and listening – will be essential.
The role also requires an ability to absorb and comprehend changes in H&S law and the H&S implications of new technologies. This could involve study and attendance at seminars, where a receptive personality will be valued.
The job will involve a good deal of paperwork, digital and literal, so good computer skills, especially report-writing, will be necessary.
