The Safe Maintenance Health Check

How do you know if your workplace is safe enough? Try answering this check list.

  1. Do your staff always isolate machines before doing maintenance?
  2. Have all your maintenance staff got their own isolation padlocks and warning boards?
  3. Do you know if you have got asbestos in your building? If so where?
  4. Do you have the right access equipment for any job?
  5. Do you have any confined spaces?
  6. Do your managers and supervisors stop maintenance work if it isn't being done safely?
If the answer to any of these questions is unsatisfactory then corrective action may need to be taken. Further guidance can be found at the Health and Safety Executive website
