SAEMA – Specialist Access Engineering and Maintenance Association – is pleased to share news of the release of a bespoke mobile app from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
The new app is designed to help organisations understand the law, their health and safety rights, and their responsibilities.
HSE’s mission is to prevent death, injury and ill-health in Great Britain’s workplaces. Ensuring that guidance is available and accessible in a variety of formats is central to achieving this objective.
Created in partnership with The Stationery Office (TSO), the app is primarily for small and medium sized businesses to help them better understand the law and what is required to protect employees.
The app is now available as a ‘public beta’ and can be downloaded on your Apple or Android device from either the iOS or Google Play Store.
There are three main sections:
- The Health and Safety Toolbox
This section explains what the law requires and the responsibilities an employer has. It provides an overview of all potential risks, so an employer can identify which areas are applicable to their organisations. Users can easily navigate through the content and find the guidance using the built-in search function.
- A Guide to Managing Risk
This section provides a simple step-by-step guide and practical advice on how to manage risk within an organisation.
- Work-Related Stress
This section includes a condensed version of HSE’s stress management standards approach. Designed for smaller organisations, it comprises a step by step guide to manage work-related stress.
