Team quarterly accident & incident report • Sorry – not yet available • I will email you when it is available on the DP page
The HS Team is proposing changes to the monitoring and review processes related to safety management systems reviews applicable to the Team programme. • A “Self declaration for Team” pilot will be run starting in July 2013. Self declaration for the purposes of the pilot is defined as“ the process where Partners confirm that their local safety management system continues to operate as demonstrated in former Trust SMS reviews and in line with their local HS arrangements”. The process uses a self declaration form requiring partners to agree or not agree with declaration statements.
The proposed change in the Trust’s HS monitoring regime aims to recognised that The Trust has a large body of evidence confirming that many Partners have robust H&S systems and deliver well managed, planned and supported programmes. With regard to this a physical review for Partners demonstrating a high level of competent H&S management is not now felt to be warranted each year. Ongoing HS reviewing is important to The Trust and the proposed process would utilise SMS reviews on a biennial basis with partners self declaring in between. Proposed criteria would need to be met before a partner would be considered for self declaration, including 2 full years of delivery and a minimum number of Teams.
Pilot outline • 20-30 established partners will move to self declaration as part of the pilot. • Partners selected to participate must be due for their annual SMSR and meet the proposed criteria outlined in the draft procedure • The pilot will last for 12 months and until all participating Partners have had their biennial SMSR (approx 16 months) • If the pilot is successful self declaration will be rolled out from Jan 2015.
Young people policies – H&S • All young people policies are currently being reviewed. With regard to HS, the HS Team will be updating the Smoking, Personal Safety and Lone working, Safeguarding, and weapons policies.
