As an employer, you’re required by law to protect your employees, and others, from harm.
Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, the minimum you must do is:
- identify what could cause injury or illness in your business (hazards)
- decide how likely it is that someone could be harmed and how seriously (the risk)
- take action to eliminate the hazard, or if this isn’t possible, control the risk
Assessing risk is just one part of the overall process used to control risks in your workplace.
We offer all aspects of Health and Safety Support including:
- Health and Safety Policies and Procedures,
- Site and Workplace Inspections,
- Risk Assessments,
- COSHH Assessments,
- Accident and Incident Investigation.
We help you to better manage health and safety for yourself by using our various training programs as listed below.
