The spread of the records
ISO 45001 requires to conduct a lots of record of results your activities. In this case we are approaching in two variants. In bigger companies (200- 300 employees) are used proper records as well as statistic analysis gained on the verification for useful clasification and suitable precaution. In smaller companies we place emphasis on the gradual observation of the personals´ experience particularly who are responsible for the labour protection. (Conducting of the records is obligatory according to legislation)
If we talked about technical steps and investment inside the company the labour protection won´t be cheap. In case the change of technologie or new investment we recommend to carry out the proper secirity analysis to avoid additional costs. The second recommendation is training and teaching of employees which are carried out informal way with placed emphasis on the especialy technics. Only skilled and knowledgeable employees could bring into the company decline of costs during estblishing of the security disposal.
