Health & Safety
H&S Healthcheck

All printers want to pride themselves on their health & safety management, but few measure themselves objectively and even fewer carry out independent reviews of their health & safety. The BPIF Safety Health Check is quick, easy and will provide you with a full gap analysis review of your current processes.  In completing this, will provide you with a clear workbook of actions which will allow you to improve where gaps have been identified.   

Our health & Safety platform provides you with an intuitive online tool, which will allow you to carry out a self-assessment health check to make sure that you stay on top of our recommended working practices.  It is easy to use, with 7 clear simple steps which will support and guide you through developing an extensive action plan for compliancy, with tools and resources at hand.

1.   Login to your personalised health check portal BPIF Online Health Check (

2.   Select your personalised questionnaire to begin the health check 

3.   Use the assisted descriptions to answer the question sections 

4.   Once your questions are completed, get your health check results 

5.   Review your level of compliancy via your personalised report 

6.   You'll find your bespoke action plan based around the report recommendations

7. Recommendations are web-linked within the Action Plan, through to the BPIF Becoming Compliant Road Map for clear guidance and support

Such topics presented through these tools  are current practices on topics such as: Arrangements and Management of Health & Safety, Control of Machinery and Equipment Hazards, Slips and Trips, Transport/Traffic Route, Skin Care and COSHH, Upper Limb Disorder, Lifting and Handling and Working at Height, auditing related documents. The areas for these topics are based on the HSE legal requirements and best practice for the printing industry.
