Safety Statements

ANTS Safety’s safety consultancy team has worked for some of Ireland’s leading private sector organizations and Government Departments. Together, our consultancy team has over 14 years experience in Occupational Hygiene Monitoring, preparing Safety Statements and conducting H&S Audits for organizations throughout Ireland.

Why do I need a Safety Statement?

Safety Statements have been required by law of all companies since the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 1989 and more recently the new Safety, Health and Welfare Act, 2005. The safety statement is effectively a company’s documented Health & Safety Management programme for ensuring the safety, health and welfare of all its employees whilst at work. The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) enforces these regulations, and has recently penalized and fined hundreds of companies throughout Ireland for not being health and safety compliant.

A Simple Process…

If you choose to engage ANTS to prepare your safety statement, we will provide a personal service that involves with our health and safety consultants which are visiting at your premises or offices to review your operations. The site visit ensures that our safety consultants accounts for all the potential hazards and risks that your employees may be exposed to during the course of their duties and that all appropriate risk assessments are developed. Our consultant will then prepare a company specific, fully compliant, comprehensive Safety Statement to meet your requirements.

Risk Assessments

Risk assessment is fundamental to good health and safety management. All employers regardless of the size of business are required by law to carry out a risk assessment at their place of work and to keep a written record of that risk assessment.

People are often put off by the idea of Risk Assessment because they think it is over complicated, difficult to complete and unnecessary.

Risk Assessment is simply looking closely at what in your place of work or about your work activities could cause harm to your employees and visitors to your workplace (e.g. customers, suppliers, sales representatives etc) and determining the control measures you can implement to minimise the risk.
