Safe Working Essentials Guidance document
Safe Working Essentials is a suite of tools covering the control of work elements which are fundamental to reducing the likelihood of incidents at work. The tools are designed to be used as either stand alone or a suite of tools that support each other.
Version 6 (2021) has been created using feedback from OIMs, ESRs and our member company focal points. The tools described in this guidance have been designed to be easily adapted for digital platforms.
This guidance expands upon the elements of;
IOGP Life Saving Rules (LSR), Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment, Task Instruction, Toolbox Talk, Dynamic Risk Assessment, Task assurance, Observation Card, After Action Review.
