Its guidelines, procedures and laws help provide everybody both employers and employees safety against lethal scenarios by ensuring all the current legislations are in place and practised correctly. Unfortunately it is something neglected by some and thus thousands of people are injured and killed every year due to either lack of understanding or negligence. Health & safety encompasses a whole host of protection and safeguards against injury. One of the main ways to immediately reduce the risk to both employer and employee is a simple risk assessment.
Here at Hire Station we have devised our own 5 step system which you can apply to your working environment.
Step 1: Identify the hazard – What is it? Where is it? Why is it there? Etc.
Step 2: Determine who might be harmed and how they might be harmed.
Step 3: Calculate the probability and what the resulting consequences would be. Decide on the correct control measures, procedures and precautions that need to be implemented.
Step 4: Document your plan and make sure it is executed efficiently and effectively.
Step 5: Create a predetermined schedule for the review, and potential update if needed, of the imposed procedures to help make sure they remain correct and effective.
This simple 5 step plan can help safeguard you and others around you from injury. Each step can be applied to any form of working environment no matter the task you or your employees are undertaking.
Each of our six health and safety categories have been tailored to cover a wide array of topics with regards to health and safety within that specific sector.

We have identified some of the basis symptoms of HAVS as well as a graph that help you calculate how much harmful vibrations you are begin exposed to and how long you can use your equipment for being causing potential harm to yourself.
WBV (Whole Body Vibration) - here we have expanded on some basic HAVS point to include the potentially more serious, yet less known about WBV (Whole Body Vibration). This effects mainly drivers of machines such as excavators and dumper trucks. We have also provided some useful tips on how to minimise your WBV exposure including some of the basic symptoms.
