This unit has been designed to develop the learner’s awareness of the principles, planning and implementation of health and safety practice within an industrial environment such as those to be found in engineering production, manufacture, services and maintenance and those in the chemical, transport and telecommunication engineering industries.
In particular, the selection, application and evaluation of safe working procedures, for operations appropriate to particular industrial activities, are first considered. Then current UK and EU health and safety legislation, the role of the inspectorate, safety audits and current codes of practice are covered. Next, risk is assessed and evaluated by identifying, rating and assessing the severity of hazards and recording all evidence and actions taken for future monitoring of these hazards.
Finally, risk management activities are considered including the methods used for gathering evidence, disseminating information, complying with current regulations and implementing policy
to minimise risk to life and property, for activities within a general engineering environment.
