Manufacturing Safety

We understand what is required with regard to Irish Legislation in the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 and the General Applications Regulations 2007. Insurers also have similar requirements and we understand and are very familiar with Health and Safety Authority requirements.

As part of our service, we can assist companies who wish to reach compliance with all these legislation’s and HSA requirements. We understand that the Manufacturing Industry is a high risk environment but all risks can be managed. When managed properly risks to personnel are reduced, production is not disrupted and all the workforce are happier in a safe environment.

Manufacturing Companies who wish to comply must implement the systems and processes to cover the items listed below and we at Clive Kelly Safety Ltd can assist you in meeting these requirements:

  • Safety Statements /Risk Assessments / Safe Operating Procedures specific to the company and operations and Method Statements for site activities.
  • Fire Extinguishers servicing and replacing when needed.
  • GA1 lifting Equipment Certification for Slings, Chains, Shackles, Harnesses, banana skips, block grabs and all other accessories/attachments every 6 months (MEWP’s are also 6 monthly).

  • We set up filing systems to include:  Safety Inductions, Training records and matrix’s, daily and weekly inspections, Tool box talk records, accident reporting, permits, task sheets, GA2 and GA3 forms, Electrical checks records,  safety inspections and audits to improve standards but we also assist in the closing out of these audits.
