Managing For Health and Safety (HSG 65)

If your organization is small or low-risk, you’ll probably be able to demonstrate effective risk management using HSE’s Managing for Health and Safety (HSG 65). HSG 65 provides a process-based approach to occupational health and safety risk management.

The guidance explains the Plan, Do, Check, Act approach and shows how it can help you achieve a balance between the systems and behavioural aspects of management. It also treats health and safety management as an integral part of good management generally, rather than as a stand-alone system.

The revised edition has advice on:

  • the core elements of managing for health and safety
  • deciding if you are doing what you need to do
  • delivering effective arrangements
  • useful resources

If you follow the guidance you will normally be doing enough to comply with the law. Health and safety inspectors seek to secure compliance with the law and may refer to this guidance.
