New guidance to help with health and safety

Aug 1st 2013. The Heath and Safety Executive has launched new guidance to help make it easier for larger organisations and businesses to understand how to manage health and safety.

The completely refreshed and enhanced ‘Managing for Health and Safety’ guidance (also known as HSG65) is now available online.

The guidance aims to help business leaders, owners, directors, trustees and line-managers and is split into four key sections:

  • Core elements of managing for health and safety
  • Are you doing what you need to?
  • Delivering effective arrangements
  • Resources

The improved information will also be of value to workers and their representatives and the third section will be of great help to those responsible for putting in place or overseeing their organisations' arrangements for health and safety including health and safety practitioners and training providers.

The Managing for Health and Safety website is part of a suite of free guidance for businesses of all types and sizes. It is accompanied by Health and Safety Made Simple and Health and Safety Toolbox, which are primarily aimed at supporting the needs of small and medium enterprises. ‘Managing for Health and Safety’ provides targeted material suitable for larger organisations, although there is some information relevant to others.
