System implementation

This chapter presents an outline for the implementation of the principal con-

tractor's health and safety management system. The essence of approach is to

assure that there are safe systems of work enacted through implementing

safety conscious procedures in key project areas. Seven key elements form the

basis of the system which commences with information drawn from the pre-

tender health and safety plan and concludes with external information flow to

the project health and safety file and internal feedback to the policy making

mechanisms of the principal contractor. System records and documentation

are essential to effective implementation and therefore suggested pro forma

are presented for each system element.
