The HSE states that as part of managing Health and Safety in your business, you must control the risks in your workplace.
As an employer, you must make a ‘suitable and sufficient assessment’ of risks to your employees’ health and safety, and risks to others not in your employment that are created because of your work.
We believe that Health and Safety in the workplace is an extremely important consideration for any employer, by ensuring your employees remain safe at work you are protecting both yourself from potentially damaging claims and your employees from any accidents that may occur.
Our professional Health and Safety Consultants can provide your business with a risk assessment for Health and Safety within your workplace. This will ensure you are surpassing all required guidelines set out by the HSE.
Depending on the nature of your business, the type of Health and Safety risks and the severity of these issues will differ greatly. In a traditional office environment we would look at slips, trips and falls being the main concern however, in situations like food manufacturing where there is machinery is operated, the potential dangers are far more severe. We will visit your operation and carry out a risk assessment based on industry criteria. We also review your policies and procedures to make sure both the prevention of physical injury and also mental wellbeing is protected.
