Health and Safety
Today there is a huge emphasis on owners and managers of a business to ensure that their staff and the public are protected when entering their business premises.
Today’s claim culture combined with ever-increasing health and safety legislation and regulations, means keeping abreast of staff training and adhering to health and safety rules can be highly daunting.
Implementing the correct Health and Safety policies and procedures is essential in any work place. They are designed to protect anyone who may visit the site of employment, from management staff and employees to visitors and customers. They are intended to outline what is expected of both employers and employees.
Every year, the fines imposed on companies who breach Health and Safety rules increase. Breaches resulting in injury or loss of life result in huge fines and, in worst case scenarios, imprisonment.
