COVID-19 will have long lasting repercussions on the way workplaces are organised and work is carried out.

In this whitepaper, Andy Tilleard explores workstation safety while working remotely.
Is Your Safety Management System Working?
Do you know whether your safety management system is working or not? It’s probably not a question that is asked within organisations too much, these things just seem to tick over without any notable issues arising and therefore what else needs to be done, but in safety the mantra of no news is good news is not necessarily one to be followed. In this whitepaper, Andy Tilleard tackles that all important question, and invites you to ask yourself – Is Our Safety Management System Working?
What you need to know about Occupational Health & Safety
There would be an expectation that all organisations are run on a foundation of good corporate governance. That means being transparent, ethical, accountable and operating with honesty and good moral values; compliance with the law is a significant component of that good governance effort. In this whitepaper, Andy Tilleard gives a brief overview of the main OHS legislation that is the starting point to understanding what business owner’s obligations are in Ireland.

In this whitepaper, Andy Tilleard discusses the development of the new ISO 45001 standard, the changes from OHSAS 18001 to the ISO 45001 and mapping between the two frameworks.

The Importance of Work Instructions and Procedures
Procedures and protocols are a crucial focal point for both management and workers; to understand what the organisations minimum management expectations are and to provide instruction and guidance for work tasks for day-to-day operations, non-standard tasks and for emergency situations. In this whitepaper, Andy Tilleard explains the significance of procedures as a safety control that should not be overlooked and illustrates the development of corporate procedures, protocols and activity level procedures.
