HSE SUPERVISION IN A COMPANY – WHEN TO APPOINT AN HSE COORDINATOR TO SUPERVISE WORKING CONDITIONS?
An HSE coordinator should be appointed wherever employees of different employers perform work at the same place and in the course of such work they may pose mutual threats to each other. It is irrelevant whether the work is carried out by different subcontractors on a construction site, in an industrial plant or in an office building. What is important is that individual employers establish rules of cooperation between themselves in order to eliminate potential risks and appoint a person (health and safety coordinator) to ensure that those arrangements are complied with.
The appointment of the HSE coordinator results from art. 208 § 1 of the Act of 26 June 1974. – Labour Code.
Supervision of occupational safety and health is one of the tasks performed by the occupational safety and health service, pursuant to § 2 of the Ordinance of the Council of Ministers of 2 September 1997 on occupational safety and health service:
“1.The scope of activities of the HSE service includes: 1) inspecting working conditions and compliance with occupational safety and health rules and regulations, with particular emphasis on workplaces where pregnant or breastfeeding women are employed, young people, the disabled, shift workers, including those working at night, and natural persons performing work on a basis other than employment relationship in the workplace or in a place designated by the employer (…)”.
The fact of the appointment of an occupational health and safety service and the regulations related to it are also specified by the above regulation:
,, § 1. An employer employing between 100 and 600 employees shall set up a multi-person or one-person department or employing a part-time employee of the OSH service in this department.
(4) An employer who employs more than 600 workers shall employ at least 1 full-time occupational health and safety officer for every 600 workers.”
Therefore, if you employ 100 or more workers – you are obliged to appoint an HSE service in your company.
