TL Safety have an online safety management system that is suitable for all types of businesses from retail, warehouse, offices, motor trade, builders, construction, manufacturing, schools, colleges, architects, designers, local authorities and many more organisations...........
The system has built in templates that enable you to produce risk assessments, method statements and COSHH assessments quickly and easily making them site or task specific. After selecting the hazards associated with the works the system automatically adds in the various controls that would normally be applicable to a particular hazard. With a single click of a button you remove the controls from the risk assessment that is not applicable. Additional controls are very easy to add to your risk assessment but as soon as you add an extra control it will be available for selection when you prepare your next risk assessment. The more you use the system the quicker it is to produce your next assessment ensuring your risk assessments are suitable and sufficient.
After completing your risk assessment, those who are required to produce method statements are quickly guided through the next stage and the method statement is automatically populated with information from your risk assessment. The COSHH assessments also include the new Global Harmonised Symbols as well as the existing COSHH symbols.
The training module enable you to capture all of your training records by individual employee or contractor. You can record external training, internal training, toolbox talks, safety briefs and induction records. Add the expiry date of your training course or competence card and the system will automatically warn you when you need to book your refresher training. You can even scan the training certificate or competence card and attach it to the training record. Ideal for controlling and monitoring your training needs and a good auditing tool and database for your ISO, OHSAS, CHAS, Safecontractor, SMAS and acclaim record keeping.
Plant and Equipment Register
Most organisations have plant, equipment,vehicles tools and equipment that needs testing, calibrating or maintaining to comply with health and safety law that requires you to maintain safe plant and equipment. Enter each item into our database along with the expiry dates of MOTs, road tax, calibrations, maintenance requirements, tests of thorough examination, test dates for fire equipment or portable appliance test dates and the system will track when they are next due. The register provides a visual warning of green to indicate current, amber to indicate something is due and red indicates that something is overdue or has expired. You can scan your records such as maintenance sheets, MOTs, test certificates and calibration certificates and attach them to your records for that piece of plant or equipment.
There is a safety audit module that enable you to select various types of audit reports depending on your type of business or activities. The audit module enables you to record all your audits electronically or you can print off the template to take into the work area, use as a checklist and record you findings. You can then, if you want to, update your audit records on the system.
Accidents and Incident Reporting
We have a module that helps you to carry out your accident and incident investigations and report writting. When the investigation report is entered into the system you can allocate actions to individual persons to carry out corrective and preventative actions. The system will then track the current status of your action plan indicating if the investigation is open or closed out. The module will automatically link (where appropriate) to the RIDDOR reporting website.
Health and Safety Law requires you to provide information, instruction and training to your employees and in many cases your sub contractors. One of the many ways is to provide your workforce with toolbox talks and retain the records on file. We have prepared around 45 toolbox talks for you to deliver those that are applicable to your workforce and we have created the briefing sheets with each toolbox talk.
The system is cloud based which means you can log on securely from anywhere in the world where you have internet access. You can log on with your PC, laptop, tablet, smart phone and most internet enabled devices which gain access to a web browser. This is extremely beneficial to those of you who work out of the office or are site base. If you have documents to prepare at home or in a hotel whilst working away it's all there for you 24/7 subject to internet access. Of course you will be responsible for all data charges and internet access charges but with many broadband providers providing unlimited downloads this cost will be negligible and if you already have that facility then there should be no extra costs involved to gain access to the system.
Many software providers give you the option to add the various modules that you require. We have taken a very simple approach........ You get it all.
If you only use 2 or 3 of the modules then we think you are getting good value for your money. If you use most of the modules then you will be getting exceptional value for your money.

TL Safety have now launched a fantastic new scheme two weeks ahead of schedule. You may already be aware that the HSE charge £124 per hour for dealing with any breaches of health and safety legislation . They often carry out unnanounced inspections, not only on construction and building sites but any other areas they consider to be high risk including manufacturing. They may even follow up on reportable accidents or complaints from the public or others. The Fee for Intervention scheme has already generated millions of pounds in fees.
The Fee for Intervention Guarantee Scheme from TL Safety Ltd will enable you to claim back the FFI invoices issued to you by the HSE. We think this is another fantastic service from TL Safety. We have recently dealt with new Clients in Construction, Refurbishment, Warehousing, Manufacturing and even a Bakery who were visited by the HSE of which four of them were unnanounced. All resulted in the HSE raising improvement notices and TL Safety being engaged to assist with attending to them. Details of our FFI Gurantee Scheme can be found by clicking the link above.
To launch our new FFI Guarantee Scheme we will include you in our scheme free of charge for the first year for any new Client who takes out our retainer contract (intermediate or above) before the end of January 2013. You must however pay the retainer service as an annual fee. You can of course join our FFI Guarantee Scheme after the 31st January 2013 but our offer to include you free of charge will have expired and you would need to add the option to your retainer package. Contact us for further details of our scheme or our retainer service options. Our Managing Director is a OSHCR registered (HSE registered) health and safety consultant and TL Safety are CHAS accredited CDMc and Worksafe Consultant accredited for our Health and Safety Consultancy and CDMc services.

Are you ready for the new CE Steel Standard?
If you manufacture: steel structures, fire escapes, staircases, balustrades, steel framed buildings or any other structural steel/aluminium products that are permanently placed in a building or structure covered by a Harmonised European Number (hEN) of which the above products are, then the company will be required by law to attain CE Marking by the 1st July 2014.
Companies that buy in lengths of CE marked steel that are then cut, drilled, bent, welded/galvanised into a product, will then become the manufacturer of that product. The onus is on the manufacturer to CE Mark the product
accordingly. TL Safety offer a simple step by step guide approach to getting you the correct CE Certification so you can meet the deadline.

details.There are four Execution classes with Execution class 4 being the highest level of quality control and Execution class 1 the lowest in general they apply to the following structures:-
Execution class 1 – Farm Buildings (structures where the consequence of failure is deemed to be low).
2 – The majority of buildings.
3 – Bridges & structures subject to fatigue.
4 – Long span bridges (structures where the consequence of failure is high).
CE Marking applies to components for incorporation into buildings and structures that are placed in a permanent manner. CE Marking for Structural steel products will become law by 1st July 2014. All other manufactured construction products by 1st July this year.
