Did you have a successful 2007?

Sheila Pantry OBE
December 2007

May we wish you the Season's Greeting wherever you are in the World!

This is a good time of the year for all organisations to review their health, safety, chemical, fire and environment procedures on a regular basis. Security should be part of this continuous risk assessment of the workplace. The results should give some valuable guidelines when carrying out the Business Continuity Plans to ensure that the business and the most important part - the people working in it, are kept safe and secure, not only in their health but in their jobs. Those attending the EurOhse2007 Masterclasses heard about these topics. As one of the speakers says - "there is much yet to be done"!

One topic keeps continually being discussed is on managing attendance and return to work, that included violence in the workplace. Have you checked recently to see if absenteeism in your workplace is connected to workplace violence?

Another area to watch is to ensure that you are up-to-date in your wider health and safety information. Remember ignorance of the law and its requirements is NO excuse. So do you want to keep up-to-date in worldwide occupational health, safety, hygiene, road safety, water safety, environment trends and the latest information? Do budget constraints not allow you to buy all the journals, newsletters and documents that contain the latest information? Can't afford the time to search for the latest information, legislation and standards? No staff to search for this information? And no time yourself to spend hours searching for information?

Then try these Practical, Affordable Solutions for your health, safety, fire and environment information needs from Sheila Pantry Associates Ltd:
