Making Sure Your Health and Safety Services Are In Order

By: David Cant | May 4 2013 | 457 words | 935 hits

When you look at the things you need to cover you might start to get a little bit concerned about what you need to know, but you should at least have a basic understanding of the laws and regulations and of course the procedures that you must implement and make sure people follow in the place of work. Every industry and indeed every type of business will have different things they need to consider, but The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (also referred to as HSWA, HSW Act or HASAWA) is the main legislation covering occupational health and safety in the UK.

As an employer, you have a duty of care to your employees, which means you need to make sure that the place of work is safe and that you have taken care of all the maintenance and training when it comes to any machinery that they may be using. To take a more basic blanket cover of this, you, as the employer, are responsible when it comes to making sure that your employees place of work is safe and that they are able to do their job in a safe, secure and controlled environment. Although this might seem like common sense for most, even overlooking some of the more basic things can often lead to risks in the workplace, which is where using the services of a health and safety consultant could well be worthwhile.

When you are busy running your business, dealing with staff, getting new orders, managing the accounts and the million and one other things you are undoubtedly responsible for, you might be forgiven for not having the time and energy to put into health and safety. But, fundamentally, without the correct procedures, you are placing yourself and your staff at massive risks, risks that as we say, could result in massive fines or even imprisonment should something happen in terms of injury or even death.

There are and have been many cases in the news where things have been done incorrectly or systems overlooked that have lead to injuries and worse, which is why making sure that your health and safety procedures and practices are in place is so vital, crucial and massively important. Using a health and safety consultant can make perfect sense, because this will allow a specialist third party to review your procedures, identify any risks and then put the measures in place to protect your staff from any potential issues.

For the sake of the investment in terms of time and money that it could cost you to get everything in order, it literally could keep you and your team safe and sound, which when you think of it, is probably the biggest investment you will ever make.
