Health and safety policies along with the standard operating procedure are a fundamental necessity in today’s business operations, yet we as business owners seem to have turned the clock back when it comes to managing them.
SOPs, also known as Safe Work Procedures, Standard Operating Procedures, Safe Work Procedures, Safety Procedures etc., are vital to both the safety and efficiency of any operation. However, these critical documents are so often in paper-based and stored in filing cabinets in manila folders.
They are difficult to access when needed most and cannot be easily updated when changes to processes occur.
It can be easily be proved in court that operating procedures and health and safety policies were not current and/or operators had no quick access to them.
This leaves a business vulnerable to heavy fines, long periods of mental stress and loss of reputation should an incident or accident occur.
