Introduction

The Safety Council is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation with the vision to be the leading, non-governmental, privately supported, public service organization for the promotion of all aspects of occupational health, safety and environmental protection in Trinidad and Tobago. In this regard our workshops and seminars over the years have been noted.

More recently the Council has been promoting an outreach compliance program on the Occupational Safety and Health Act No. 1, 2004 (as amended) aimed at assisting both member and non-member establishments to meet or exceed the requirements of the Act. The feedback is very positive and we would like to share the experience with your establishment.

The structure of the workplace and other requirements of the Act demand safety-technical advice that can be delivered to support your ongoing compliance with the Act.

HSE Audits

It is important that an owner or occupier of an establishment knows that he/she is in compliance and will continue to be in compliance with all aspects of the OSH Act. The Council will conduct audits that will identify any gaps and make recommendations to close these gaps. Audits may take the form of workplace or equipment inspections or full scale HSE Management System Audits Incident Investigation A key intervention to prevent the recurrence of Incidents is the proper investigation to identify root cause. The Council’s experienced operatives will apply proper investigation techniques and provide detailed recommendations. Mentoring New Safety Practitioners Many young persons are drawn to the safety profession. After having attended numerous courses they still have difficulty in applying the leanings in a satisfactory manner in the workplace. The Council offers these persons an opportunity to work alongside an experienced practitioner to develop the skills of effective applying their knowledge.

 

HSE Management System Development & Implementation

It is necessary to have an operating management system to maintain the requirements of occupational health, safety and environment. The Council will direct the development and implementation of such a system and monitor its performance for an agreed period. This process begins with a detailed gap analysis to make full use of existing conditions. Presenters and operatives All presenters and operatives are trained mature practitioners with at least ten years experience. Some of the services are conducted by affiliates to the Council. Careful scrutiny is exercised when the choice of an affiliate is being made.
