H&S Administrator Role

28 February 2020


To fully understand the role it is expected that the HSA will undergo suitable and relevant training, which will include as a minimum ‘Health & Safety Awareness’ and guidance and direction on the implementation of the policies, procedures and arrangements set out in the HSCM.

It is normally the HSA that will have the responsibility to maintain the organisation’s HSCM, the record-keeping and distribute the HSCM updates to the relevant individuals.  In addition, the HSA will report the findings of any inspections, audits and other information gathering exercises to the H&S Committee as appropriate.  

The HSA will provide assistance to Chief Executive/General Manager, H&S Committee and HODs in the undertaking of risk assessments, control implementation, policy development, etc.  This may involve liaison with the EVH H&S Support Service.  It should be noted that the HSA will not be responsible for developing appropriate policies, but expected to assist in the development and implementation.

EVH in association with ACS Physical Risk are offering training sessions on the roles and responsibilites of the H&S Administrator with regards to the H&S Control Manual. The forst of these, H&S Administrator - An Introduction for Non-RSL's will take place on 23 March. This session will be tailored to members with no housing stock.
