Blinds company implements effective Health and Safety

A manufacturer of window blinds and sunblinds, recognising that it was not fulfilling its obligations under health & safety law, sought help to ensure legal compliance.

Risk assessments were carried out to determine the health & safety legislation applicable to the business and the measures to be applied to ensure safety and legal compliance. From these findings a health & safety management system, along the lines of OHSAS18001, was developed and implemented.

The management now recognises how the effective management of health and safety compliments other functions such as quality, environmental management and training, and are confident that its risks to health & safety are under control.
