It is important for every company or industry to have its own health and safety plan template. This indicates not only the priority of the company given to its workers but it also reflects its perception of health for everyone involved in the company and for the general public. Having a such a template also prevents or minimizes unnecessary costs the company might shoulder due to legal actions it may undergo once a worker or group of workers would get involved in an accident. Therefore, designing a health and safety plan template also gives signal to the moral and legal obligation of the company to its workers.
Use of these Templates • It is useful because it gives a direction to the business organization. • It acts like a perfect guideline for achieving individual as well as organizational goals. • Action plan templates are useful for employees and employers both as they can understand what are their responsibilities and what work they are expected to perform. • It is useful as it defines the lines of authority, responsibility, and states who is accountable to whom. Purpose of Using • To clarify the resources, that will be required for attaining the goals. • To set timelines for tasks and setting deadlines. • To allocate various tasks to the employees according to their potential, knowledge and skills. • Helps in optimum consumption of the resources and helps to avoid wastage. • Helps in predicting the risks and threats in advance and to take timely actions and solutions for them. • To find a strategy that works for the business and using it again in future for achieving goals. • To meet the deadlines on time and completion of tasks well before time.
Remember that accidents may kill a business. And for humanitarian and practical reasons, businesses are encouraged and even charged by law to create and maintain a work environment that is safe and healthy. These two should be protected for humanitarian reasons because an employer has the moral obligation to keep his workers safe and healthy, and for practical reason because hospitalization and litigation are costly, not to mention its being bad for the business.
A health and safety plan is not merely a plan that provides a tip or two on how to prevent an accident and what to do it the inevitable occurs. It is a detailed plan that includes everything there is to consider when working on a project. Developing a template is concerned about creating a template that will show every detail of a health and safety plan. When developing such, consider the precision and the weight of the plan. It would be the reference of everything that has something to do with health and safety. Thus, it should be direct, consistent and thorough.
