Service Safety

Where we provide customer service on our customer's premises, the undertaking of our service representatives will inherently introduce risks. The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations (MHSaW) recognises that communication and cooperation is key to the elimination / control of such risks, thereby promoting the Health, Safety and Welfare of all interested parties.

In keeping with the spirit of the MHSaW regulations, this section is intended to present our customers with our 'All Risk' information, as is needed to effectively facilitate employer cooperation, along with the suitable and sufficient risk control measures that are expected and required.

The understanding and use of these documents is intended to ensure that all parties are sufficiently informed to work with us in Risk Management Cooperation.

Work Method Statement
This describes concisely, the scope for work and work methods used by our visiting service representative. It is intended to be used in conjunction with the 'Model Risk Assessment', to provide a clear overall view of the potential for complex risks, as the service undertaking is compared / integrated with our customers identified hazards and risk control precautions.

Model Risk Assessment
This qualitative assessment of risks serves as a 'model' under the provision made by the MHSaW Regs. It considers all risks inherent to the undertaking of our service representative (generic to all Canon regions for the UK). Whilst it cannot as such include the individual environmental factors inherent to each of our customers premises, this information is being shared in order that it may be extended / adapted and integrated with our customers own risk control precautions. It is intended to be used in conjunction with our 'Work Method Statement'.
