Sure parking is a meet and greet services providing company at London Gatwick Airport have their office in horley consists of one office room. . a kitchen. 2. about 25 workers including drivers. Lots of issues could be resolved by investing a little time or a little cost that could result in increase in productivity.1. compliance with the legal requirements and most importantly. the workers working 24/7. a toilet. controllers. Everyone needs to train how to use the fire equipment’s in case of emergency. Improving the layout to create a better work environment and in place drainage system for the wastage water from the car washer. A health and safety inspection of Sure Parking meet and greet working at London Gatwick Airport was carried out. Executive Summary At the completion of the inspection it could be seen that there are some issues in organisation concern with the employer and employees as well. Provide first aid equipment’s as immediate basis. The purpose of the inspection was to identify acknowledge a good practice of current health and safety in the organisation and recommend any remedial actions need to be taken. The important key issues about the health and safety point of view are:- Drivers need training to properly inspect the cars before driving. managers. 365 days in a year according to their appropriate shifts. a guest room.

The drivers do not do any care to drive the cars within speed limits. As in the observation found that the uneven floor of the office could cause some slips injuries and no drainage system provided for the waste water of the car washer area could also leading to the serious hazards for the workers and the pedestrians as well. There is also no signs posted as discussed in the observation and no separate way allocated to the pedestrians. No cost will occur to train the drivers but may be a little cost about £1000 for lighting and mirrors. These all problem shows that there is lack of co-operation and lack of communication system within the organisation and all the above problems are seems to be clear violation of “The health and safety (safety signs and signals) regulation 1996” and also international labour office 1995. All the above hazards can cause some serious accidents also breaching “Dangerous substances and explosive atmospheres regulation 2002”. No cost for training the employees but their might be about £2000 cost for the repair of floor and drainage system. Main findings My main findings from the observations are explained below:- 3. Also there is very tight turning at site and no mirrors are allocated and not proper lighting in the yard. slips and trips. etc. 3. So the organisation should need to improve the workplace environment to repair that uneven floor and make proper drainage system for the waste water within 6 month time and train employees to keep clean the area they using.3. provide proper lighting to save their cost if any accidents happen. 3. All of the above issues for the work environment shows that the directors of the organisation violating their duties under “section 37 of the HASWA 1974”. . and also the main issue was the workers don’t know how to use those fire fighting equipment’s in the case of fire.2 Work Environment:The work environment of the organisation was also seems not very good. The organisation should need to take some steps like train the drivers.1 Vehicles:The standard of the vehicles inspection system was very poor as in the observation noted that a company van making a sound from silencer was not reported to the supervisor by the driver.3 Fire:It is seemed during observation that fire extinguishers equipment’s provided by the organisation is not well enough for that area and also as mentioned in the observation that one bottle with full of petrol was found on the floor could cause fire. restrict them to drive within the speed limits.

The above issues are relating to the violation of “health and safety and welfare regulation 1992”. This could be a minor cost to buy raining suits to avoid ill health of the employees. This is also employer responsibility to provide the raining suits to employees under “section 37 of HASAW 1974”.4 Housekeeping:The standard of housekeeping was also poor as noticed in the observation. It is the duty of the organisation to provide the first aid equipment’s to the workers under “section 37 of HASAW 1974”. in the rainy weather the workers are working and not wearing any raining suits. This is not in compliance with provision and use of work equipment’s regulation 1998 regulation 4. Organisation should need to provide first aid equipment’s to the workers on immediate basis. some cables were found in the walkway could cause some slips and trips or may cause some more hazards and also in the kitchen there are some refreshment spillages found which could cause slips and trips and fire as well. 3. 3. It could cost about £100 to provide those equipment’s. 3. regulation 6-10 and 20-25. it was found that there is no first aid facility provided to the workers to face any minor injuries which could cause a big loss to the company. There should be Regular workplace check in place either weekly or monthly.6 First aid:In the observation. It will cost about £50 to replace that wire could save a big loss to the company. It would improve the apparent poor health and safety culture and to be at no cost to the company.5 Electricity:One microwave found in the kitchen which has damaged wire could cause fire at any time. The wire of the microwave should need to repair as immediate basis and allocate a proper safety checks for the equipment’s. The recommendation to solve the housekeeping issue is to complete cleaning and tidying regime for the workplace. 3. No cost will occur to train the workers and also the removal of the petrol bottle. .7 Personal Protective Equipment’s:As we see in the in the observation.My recommendation would be to remove that petrol bottle immediately and keep it in the safe place and give training to the workers to using the fire fighting equipment’s so organisation could face low level of loss in case of fire.

Conclusion In this health and safety inspection. who is responsible for health and safety issues and engaging the workforce and encourage them to report any issue or problem they facing.8 Signage:There are no signs found at the entrance of the office door as the step is very high as seemed in the observation and also the car parking yard is very congested and no signs in the yard for slow speed or for pedestrians. . 4. safety surveys and safety tours will show to staff that management do have a positive attitude within the organisation. 25 observations has been identified with in the workplace of Sure Parking meet and greet indicates that the workplace is not only guilty of breaches in health and safety legislation but everyone within the management structure have accountable and admit liability for these findings. This report finds that there is a very poor health and safety culture in the organisation ranging from the highest position of the management chain down to bottom. training and consultation system. The policy is not fit and it requires revision to find out what proactive measures need to be taken to improve the health and safety standard. There are lot of factors of the poor health and safety standard in the organisation such as lack of leadership and commitment from the management in developing a positive health and safety culture and serious lack of communication.3. There is a need to form a committee. There is violation of the “safety signs and signals regulation 1996”. by having regular safety inspections. These signs need to be in place within 3 months’ time and cost of the signs will be about £500 to the organisation will save some serious accidents. It seems to be the lack of safe system of work but by doing the programme of induction and some refresher training should improve the standard and also improve the moral of the workers .
