explain how and when to report potential health and safety risks that have been identified
A health and safety report, HSR, is to document that health and safety risks on offshore installations have been identified, [ assessed and reduced as much as reasonably practicable. The HSR is also to document that the enterprise can control these risks and, if necessary, evacuate the installation effectively in critical situations. As a minimum an HSR is to include: A detailed description of
the offshore installation and its operating conditions. A detailed description of the management system for health and safety. Identification of potential risks of major accidents and hazardous impacts on health and safety as well as the general risk involved when on the offshore installation. An assessment of risks and documentation that these risks have been reduced as much as is reasonably practicable (ALARP). Documentation that evacuation to a safe place can be carried out effectively and safely in a critical situation. The health and safety report is to be updated when significant changes in health and safety conditions or the operating conditions on the installation occur. For mobile offshore installations the health and safety report can be prepared in accordance with “International Guidelines of Drilling Contractors, Health, Safety and Environmental Case (Guidelines for Mobile Offshore Drilling Units)”. The HSR does not need to be one coherent document containing all the information mentioned above, but should as a minimum include references to where this information can be obtained. ]

outline the main health and safety responsabilities of self,the employer or manager and others
Weegy: The main piece of legislation affecting the management of health and safety in educational establishments across all sectors is the Health and Safety at Work, etc Act 1974 (HSWA). [ This Act provides a framework for ensuring the health and safety of all employees in any work activity. It also provides for the health and safety of anyone who may be affected by work activities in eg pupils/students and visitors to educational sites, including parents and contractors. In Northern Ireland, similar provisions are made by the Health and Safety at Work (NI) Order 1978. Employers and employees (as well as manufacturers, suppliers and the self-employed) must comply with the duties set out in the Act, which are summarised as follows. Section 2 places a duty on employers to ensure the health, safety and welfare of employees as far as is reasonably practicable. It also requires employers to consult with trade union safety representatives on matters affecting health and safety in the workplace. Moreover, employers of more than five people must prepare a written health and safety policy and bring it to the attention of employees. Section 3 requires employers to ensure that non-employees (eg pupils/students) who may be affected by work activities are not exposed to risks to their health and safety. Where young or vulnerable persons may be affected, the duty of care is greater. Section 4 places a duty on anyone responsible for the workplace to ensure that the premises, plant and machinery do not endanger the people using them. Section 5 requires employers to prevent and control harmful, noxious or offensive emissions into the atmosphere. Section 6 places duties on designers, manufacturers and suppliers to ensure that articles and substances are safe for use. Section 7 states that it is the duty of every employee while at work to take reasonable care of him or herself and of any other person who may be affected by his or her actions. ] (More)

Weegy: Employer’s responsibilities Under the law employers are responsible for health and safety management. The following provides a broad outline of how the law applies to employers. [ Don't forget, employees and the self employed have important responsibilities too. It is an employer's duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other people who might be affected by their business. Employers must do whatever is reasonably practicable to achieve this. This means making sure that workers and others are protected from anything that may cause harm, effectively controlling any risks to injury or health that could arise in the workplace. Employers have duties under health and safety law to assess risks in the workplace. Risk assessments should be carried out that address all risks that might cause harm in your workplace. Employers must give you information about the risks in your workplace and how you are protected, also instruct and train you on how to deal with the risks. Employers must consult employees on health and safety issues. Consultation must be either direct or through a safety representative that is either elected by the workforce or appointed by a trade union. For more details on the basics of what employers must do to make their business comply with health and safety law in a low risk business , HSE has produced a booklet Health and safety made simple. ] (More)
