Management Sign Off
If the relevant local and senior manager are confident the control measures in place are acceptable or agree the recommended actions sufficient they should sign off the risk assessment.
The sign-off tab records the date the risk assessment was passed to management for sign-off. This allows, for example, the health and safety department to monitor how long management have been reviewing the risk assessment and to chase-up if necessary.
It is normal practice for the local manager to take responsibility for implementing any required corrective actions and the senior manager to take overall accountability. The health and safety department would review actions undertaken to ensure they have been implemented effectively. These arrangements may however differ from company to company.
TIRA includes reports which have been designed to help those with health and safety responsibilities to manage the risk assessment assessment of activity.
