Are RAMS A Legal Obligation?

Although not a legally required document in the same way a Risk Assessment is, RAMS are a vital part of workplace safety, as they help prevent future incidents from happening and help ensure that workers are as safe from injury as possible.

How Do Risk Assessments And RAMS Differ?

A Risk Assessment, which is a legal requirement, often created using Risk Assessment Templates, is designed to identify a hazard in the workplace, and then work out the potential risk it poses to employees.

RAMS on the other hand are about addressing hazards, and then looking into workable methods to eliminate them. RAMS then communicate these methods in an easy-to-understand manner, to ensure a higher level of safety in the workplace.

How Do RAMS Benefit Businesses?

RAMS, and all the information they bring together, offer businesses numerous benefits, including:

  • Employee Satisfaction – Having a safer workplace where employees feel safe to carry out various processes and know the methods shown in RAMS documents to ensure that safety, can contribute to greater job satisfaction throughout.

  • Increased Productivity – Along with employee satisfaction, and the fact employees feel safer carrying out their jobs as a whole, businesses using RAMS also see an increase in overall productivity across the business.

  • Lower Rate Of Absence – Due to increased workplace safety created using RAMS, and implementing the methods to prevent hazards, employees have fewer workplace accidents, suffer less stress, and therefore spend less time absent.

  • Reduced Risk Of Legal Penalties – By improving workplace health and safety using RAMS and Risk Assessments etc., you ensure compliance with risk management, which in turn leads to a lower risk of the business facing fines or lawsuits.

What Should A RAMS Document Contain?

A basic RAMS document should include:

  • The original Risk Assessment, which can be created using Risk Assessment Templates found in Vision’s RAMS Builder.
  • An in-depth description of First Aid Provision
  • A comprehensive guide on how to complete a task whilst avoiding or minimising the associated hazard.
  • Other relevant information, including supervisor details and the equipment or substances etc. involved.

And remember – once your RAMS document is created, ensure that each employee receives a copy and that it is regularly reviewed and updated, all of which can be easily carried out using Vision’s RAMS Builder software.
