Management Manual

The Health & Safety management manual is used to document the H&S management system in place in NHSGGC and is comprised of two sections:

Section 1 - Overview of H&S Management and H&S in the workplace. All content within this section requires to be present in your management manual.

Section 2 - Supplementary Guidance / Other Topics. Only topics relevant to your department should be completed and held in your folder.

Policies and Guidance Documents

Policies and additional guidance documents relating to many of the subjects within the management manual can be found here. A list of policies only, and instruction on where to access them can be obtained here.

Risk Assessment

Exemplar and worked example Risk Assessments are available here. The intention is that these risk assessments can be downloaded and modified according to local circumstances.

Changes to the Health & Safety Management Manual

Changes to the Management Manual documentation will be noted here


Following use of the previous Management Manual and Policy Implementation audit form from 2010 - 2016, a new Management Systems Audit form has been created, and is being used by the department from June 2017 onwards. Whilst asking questions on many of the same topics as the older form, the new form allows a numerical answer to be given between 0 and 10. this will give a more representative scoring, and hopefully a more accurate depiction of Health & Safety within the department being audited.

Outcomes from the audits will be shared with your local Health and Safety Committee. Where further work is required and identified by the audit, the form below should be used to update your local Health & Safety committee on progress.
