Sensible, Proportionate and Cost Effective Health & Safety Guidance
Lets be honest, you are at this website because you want to know something about Health and Safety.
You are probably a business owner or manager, and you require sensible, proportionate and cost effective guidance and advice about health, safety, fire or environmental issues.
There are only 3 reasons for having a safe workplace, Legal, Moral and Financial. Whatever your feelings about being ‘legal’ or ‘moral’, nobody in business or not, wishes to waste money.
Saving you money
Good health and safety saves you money. Doing it badly or not at all eventually results in significant loss to your company.
You cannot insure against bad press, court fines, a prison sentence or knowing that you are responsible for someone being injured or killed.
As a general rule, nobody deliberately goes out to be dangerous in the workplace; yet many simple, preventable accidents occur each day. Slips and trips alone cost UK employers £500M each year.
Your Role as an Employer
As an Employer, you are required by law to appoint one or more competent persons to assist you fulfil your health and safety obligations (unless you are capable of fulfilling the role yourself).
It is your responsibility to make sure they are competent.
If you engage an external consultant to provide health and safety services, ensure they are a member of a professional body such as the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and therefore bound by their professional code of conduct.
