The template of a proposed health and safety measure should first include the department or division of the government or other bodies that is the addressee of the proposal; the law that is involved, of which compliance is a must; the summary of what the law is requiring the company as regards health and safety; other necessary information or other pertinent laws; the proposal number, or any equivalent identification; the date of posting, and the summary of the proposal. This summary may be short but should be concise. It should only include the essentials.
The last part of the health and safety proposal template is the contact address of the addressee, the date when the proposal would be effective, and a section indicting whether the same is actually approved or not. The proposal must be created not only for the purpose of approval thus having the authorization to operate; rather it must be made to guarantee the welfare of everybody, without exception and without distinction. Every life is important and this is what the proposal should seek to protect. Health and safety should never be compromised no matter what the job is. This should always be the first priority, that is, not only of the workers on the job, activity or project, but also to all people involved and the general public.
Another reason why there should be a health and safety plan template is that a company has a moral and legal obligation to keep its workers healthy and safe and that failure to do so due to negligence or malicious intent is a ground for many legal actions that would cause the company to lose money from litigation and the business to fail or be disabled for a period of time. Thus, the template for an occupational health and safety plan should be necessarily complete to cover all known and foreseen hazards in a work.
Truly, making a direct, detailed, and consistent template for a health and safety plan is tough. However, there are sample health and safety plan templates available online that can be used by a company in creating its own plan. At a single click, a company can download some of these templates for its use. In fact, there are providers that are compliant with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Getting access to these templates and using them as a guide can help the company in saving time and effort in developing one. The amount of time and effort spent can be used instead in dissemination of information to the workers, getting their consent, training of workers if necessary, and monitoring and evaluation.
