Online software makes risk assements easier “Hands HQ”
This seems like a good idea although it might just mean you are printing of every single risk assessment to had in instead of looking through thoroughly what the operatives need to do.
Hands HQ looks to simplify health and safety documentation and is suitable for the millions of contractors and peripheral industry businesses that are required by law to complete risk assessments and method statements as part of their daily routine, that’s probably you if you did not know.
The online tool takes the pain and expense out of managing health and safety for UK construction and trade businesses. It can be accessed from any computer, tablet or mobile device, helping to keep employees safe and jobs on time.
The company claims that the software allows construction businesses to compile professional, site-specific, branded risk assessments and method statements in less than three minutes. The software caters for a range of trades from construction, carpentry electrical and plumbing to HVAC, gas works, joinery, and painting and decorating.
Many businesses are unable to justify the added expense of recruiting a health and safety consultant and in almost all circumstances the contractor on the ground has a much better understanding of the inherent risks involved in their job than anyone else.
The resulting system is designed to be used by any contractor; it is both simple and robust. The user is able to select the type of work and add hazards with the click of a button.
I think its a great Idea if it saves time and money yet to check it out though.
