Occupational Health and Safety Performance Management
Health and Safety Performance Management is fundamental to the overall National Services Scotland (NSS) occupational health and safety management system and should be implemented by all SBUs as an integral part of the operational requirements of the business for which they are responsible.
The NSS performance management structure is based on the Health and Safety Executives (HSE) model, HSG65, this is not a legal requirement, but is recognised across industry and by the HSE as a best practice model. This structure allows NSS to identify and describe the proactive and reactive measures taken to manage the health, safety & wellbeing of employees, visitors or contractors who visit NSS premises.
Performance Management is key to the delivery of the NSS Occupational Health, Safety, Wellbeing and Fire Strategy and assisting the Organisation in meeting its legal obligations under the Health and Safety at Work (etc) Act 1974.
NHS 24 currently out sources its Occupational Health function to NHS GG&C ,any Performance Management (Audit & Risk) function would be undertaken by them.
