The health, safety and welfare of all employees must always be the first
consideration in either:

   The starting of any business
   The planning, managing and operating of any business
   The closing of any business.

There does not need to have an accident for you to be in breach of health and safety law.

The keeping of records and paperwork are vitally important as they are usually the only way a company can prove its innocence and mitigate against liability.

Although the OSH Act 2004 as amended (2006) have been decriminalized, the breach of health and safety law and any other law under the OSH Act is still an offence. Any business or individual can be committed to stand trial in either Summary Court (Magistrate) or an Industrial Court (Judge) or both and this does not include civil suit being brought against the enterprise.

The penalties from such action can include high fines, imprisonment depending on the breach, down time, loss of business and reputation, legal costs, medical costs, civil claims, trauma and increased insurance costs.

New legislation may even prevent you from running your business in future! Your insurance may not be valid for a breach of such law, hence the package we offer could be the best insurance you ever have!

Many things happen best when they are unplanned: sadly, health and safety management is not one of them. Safety has to be carefully planned and managed. It is not a bolt-on extra; it needs thought and input so that it becomes an integral part of your business management systems.

Many companies, businesses and the self-employed find great difficulty in coming to terms with the requirements of health and safety legislation because of such things as constant pressure on time, perceived unmanageable bureaucracy, increased costs and the sheer scale of the subject.

Safety Pass Alliance Trinidad and Tobago (SPATT) Limited offers a carefully constructed support package that is affordable and effective in establishing the basic requirements to be compliant with the law. This approach ensures the company meets the demand for safety and health and at the same time ensures the business establishes a strong foot hold through a pro-active development programme for managing health and safety.

It should be noted in two areas:

   Firstly although the basics would be met, the business
      should always strive for excellence in the long run for
      it would be financially viable
   Secondly the package we offer is a development
      programme and not a training course.

Each business is different and requires individual analysis to establish priority areas requiring attention. From the essentials of understanding the legislation and how it applies to your operation through to designing and assisting with the implementation of viable management systems, SPATTL offers constant support.

The key factors are effective planning and, most importantly, physical support during a period of implementation. In reality, you will have programmed practical assistance over a period that will not allow the best intentions fall by the wayside.

The package we offer will ensure that your company is put on the right track and at the right level for your operation.

The Occupational Safety and Health Agency understands and accept that everything cannot be done at once, and that improvements take time. What they will not accept is little or nothing being done and no clear evidence of any commitment to future development of health and safety management.

As well as introductory information on the Occupational Safety and Health Act 2004 (2006), current regulations and guidelines, the package will include the preparation of a health and safety plan and producing a bespoke company health and safety policy.

This is the core document showing the company’s commitment statement of intent, organisation and arrangements for implementing health and safety procedures. This will be subsequent to a benchmarking health and safety check/audit.

The package includes training in the concept and use of risk assessment, as well as the key process for achieving a proactive management methodology which must be a priority. Another key feature of the programme is that the staff of the company, at every level will be involved and expected to contribute to the overall process.
