Corporate Safety Statement 2017
Health Service Executive (HSE)
As required by Section 20, of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005, the Health Service Executive (HSE) Corporate Safety Statement (CSS) describes the arrangements in place for safeguarding and maintaining a safe and healthy environment for employees, service users, visitors and all who come in contact with our Services or activities. The CSS is applicable to all services and all employees throughout the HSE and places obligations on both management and employees to ensure the safety management system is fully integrated into day-to-day business. Section 2 of the CSS places the management of Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) as a prime responsibility from managers at all levels. The roles and responsibilities of the HSE Directorate, Director General, National Directors, Chief Financial Officer, National Director HR, Hospital Group Chief Executive Officers, Community Health Organisation Chief Officers and Service Managers are clearly outlined. All employees have a responsibility for their own occupational safety, health and welfare and that of others in the workplace and hence successful implementation is greatly dependent on the full cooperation of every employee. Failure to comply with the terms of the Corporate Safety Statement may result in disciplinary action
