Safety Files are important to ensure that both an organisation’s corporate image and compliance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 is maintained.
Wilde’s technical safety company, 4-sight Consulting, worked with SSE, a British energy company, to implement a Safety File for their 45MW combined heat and power site at Smurfit-Kappa in Kent, which provides steam and electricity to a paper mill.
SSE has peace of mind that, in the event of anything going wrong, all the information that backs up their safety systems will be to hand in one location, in the form of the Safety File. The implementation of a Safety File allows SSE to demonstrate that:
Paul Gornall visited SSE’s 45MW CHP site at Smurfit-Kappa, which provides steam and electricity to a paper mill, to get an appreciation of SSE’s business. In order to be prepared in case anything goes wrong, Paul was requested to identify all the documents and processes that have gone in the past. Paul was professional in getting the information at the site and has spent time on the computer system to follow up on this. He is giving us peace of mind in the fact that if anything goes wrong, we will have the information to hand to back up all our safety systems in one location – the Safety File.
