SOP Writing Service

Spiers will provide a competent person to document your standard ways of working in the form of a Standard Operating Procedure and risk assessment. The risk assessment will identify hazards and existing controls with a resulting risk level that is the 'managed risk'.

"Unlike machine change, this behavioural change can be initiated instantly to reduce the likelihood of harm occurring"

The managed risk provides the evidence of risk-based considerations required by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (MHSWRs).

This activity does not constitute a full PUWER inspection but combined with a subsequent PUWER inspection you will have what is needed to determine if the work equipment is operated and maintained safely.
