Why you need to be health & safety compliant

It is an employer's duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other people who might be affected by their business. Employers must do whatever is reasonably practicable to achieve this.

This means making sure that workers and others are protected from anything that may cause harm, effectively controlling any risks to injury or health that could arise in the workplace.’ A Business that employs five or more staff, including any part time personnel, has a legal requirement to comply with health and safety regulations. Apart from ensuring that your business is a safe environment for the employees and can run as efficiently as possible, compliance reassures the workforce, suppliers and customers.

Managing health and safety does not need to be complicated, costly or time-consuming. Although there are products available from us as well as the HSE, that will allow you to take steps towards compliance yourself, undertaking the task of creating your own health and safety system will require a significant investment in time. The risks for some business are often complex. Given what is at stake, the cost of allowing us to provide a suitable and sufficient health and safety system could be the best investment that any business could make.

Under new guidelines, you could face unlimited fines based on your business’ turnover if you are not Health and Safety Compliant. Don’t panic as we believe we have the simplest and most cost-effective solutions for you to protect your business, your customers and your employees.
