health & safety

Are you struggling to find time for Health and Safety?

Managers are often overwhelmed by the amount of legislation they need to comply with and are usually flat out working on core business tasks. Consequently, they cannot find the time to attend to the Risk Assessments and the subsequent action required to reduce the risk. Compensation culture and employer's liability insurance have made Health and Safety compliance an issue that can no longer be ignored. Accidents at work will never be completely eradicated but when they happen they can take up a significant amount of management time.

Most businesses cannot justify a full time Health & Safety Manager nor do they have the time to get involved in detailed legislative requirements. Outsourcing your Health & Safety function is the only cost effective way to stay within the law and benefit from good employee relations as well as lessen the claims against accidents.
