Health & Safety, 3 words: Prevention, Prevention, Prevention – there is no other way. Getting hurt comes in stages from near miss to death! A Health & Safety system minimises that chance of accidents, but requires the support of everyone.
All businesses have a duty to ensure that they offer a safe place of work for:
Health and safety officials can turn up and without notice. People are now prompted to contact health and safety officials to inform them of bad practices, do not let your business get caught out.
Regular health & safety audits will ensure compliance with the system, issues of concern can be reported and action taken to minimise any risks.
Conducting risk assessments in areas of the business that could be of harm can help to make the workplace a safer environment.
Actions implemented from the risk assessment will minimise the chance of an accident.
It is a safer environment where a health & safety system is implemented. This is demonstrated in everyday situations where household named companies make the best possible use of them.
Promoting the fact that your business cares can motivate people within the organisation.
