HEALTH & SAFETY
We consider protecting your staff as not only a legal requirement, but a human requirement too
It has never been as important to ensure that your business complies with Health & Safety legislation as it is now.
Social distancing, intense sanitisation regimes and provision of PPE are the “new normal” and any business that is found breaching such regulations will be in danger of receiving sanctions and hefty fines. If any employee contracts Covid-19 at work, your business can be held liable, unless you can demonstrate that you have made reasonable attempts to comply. This would result in a drain on finances, time and resources – all of which can be avoided with some very simple planning in advance.
COVID-19 aside - the burden of responsibility for all health and safety issues lies squarely on the shoulders of business owners and/or the Managing Director. The legislation is extensive and daunting but should not be ignored.
If your business does not currently have an up-to-date Health and Safety Policy, with clearly defined health & safety responsibilities and organisational structure, written operational procedures with risk assessments and safe working practices and access to competent H&S persons, then – regardless of the size of the business – you are in breach of the law. Don’t panic - contact us now for a free no obligations chat so we can discuss how we can help you to comply, giving you peace of mind for at least one part of your business.
