FSAI has entered into a service contract with the Health Service Executive; it was signed on January 1, 2016. Following an amendment to the Food Safety Authority of Ireland Act 1998, schedule 1 of the FSAI-HSE service contract was updated in November 2017. The new S.I. (S.I. No.107 of 2017) amends the legislation in the first timetable to reflect the amendments, repeals and new legislation adopted since the publication of the previous amendment to the Act (2014). Minimum standards for service and customer requirements that must be met The service itself is offered (e.g. B asbestos analysis and mitigation work, fire risk assessment, Legionnaires` disease control, occupational health care, etc.). In its Waste Management Contract Guidelines, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) refers to the results of services (based on legislation or good practice) that impose how a service should be delivered, from the point of view of health and safety authorities (health and safety) to service specifications, and notes that “relevant determinants of health and safety play an important role in defining a contract. They will not be the only factor to consider, but they must be included. When a volunteer agency is responsible for providing services on behalf of the HSE, HSE assumes its responsibility through a service level arrangement. Essentially, ALS is a negotiated agreement between the client and the contractor, which aims to establish a common understanding of expectations, the nature of relationships, services, roles and responsibilities, performance indicators and prices/costs. It is also a way of defining service specialties. The risks and risks to occupational health and safety associated with the provision of results for the service being tendered (for example. B work at height, exposure to hazardous substances, etc.).
A service specialty provides potential suppliers with a clear, accurate and comprehensive description of the customer`s needs that allows them to propose a solution to meet the requirement. In other words, the specialization of services emphasizes the service standards required and not the processes involved. Together, ALS and specifications should include the following elements: When developing a service specialty, the nature of the specifications should be taken into account, i.e. when and by whom it should be developed. In general, the specifications may be: Mike Sopp reflects on how service specifications should describe health and safety requirements in detail. Ensuring that the client organization receives the highest quality and the most appropriate level of health and safety performance is an intentional and non-hypothetical act. It is therefore essential that health and safety service requirements be detailed in service performance requirements. Conversely, when the specifications cover a greater number of services, the above detail may be more comprehensive, allowing contractors to achieve the necessary results with the means they deem most appropriate. With respect to operational risks associated with the provision of services, a risk assessment of the specification requirements is used to identify risks, so that the corresponding health and safety requirements can be defined.
