Protect What Matters
As your business or organisation grows, so do your moral and legal duties to ensure the health and safety of people who could be affected by the hazards your business creates.
By getting health and safety properly organised, you protect your people, your assets and your business reputation.
The impact of a workplace accident or illnesses caused by work can be devastating. Not only for the person injured, but also for their family.
Many workplace injuries and illnesses are entirely preventable through good health and safety management.
Even the seemingly not-so-serious health and safety issues can add up to a significant financial drain on the business.
When your people are off-work due to work-related injuries or illness, it costs the business money.
The average cost of a +7 day absence is £5,000 – £8,000.
In addition, changes to the way health and safety offences are dealt with by the legal system, which came in in 2016, means that there has been a huge increase in the size of fines.
The number of company directors personally held responsibly by the courts and prosecuted accordingly has also risen sharply in the last few years.
Here To Help
The good news is that help is on-hand. If you would like to benefit from the friendly assistance and support of a Chartered Health and Safety Consultant, we’re here.
The legal requirement to carry out risk assessments is absolute. This means they’re not discretionary – they simply must be done.
Also, they need to be legally ‘suitable and sufficient’. If an incident occurred and you were required to hand over your risk assessments to the enforcing authorities during the investigation, would you be confident they were up to the required standard?
In situations like these, it’s best to be in no doubt. If you feel would benefit from some friendly help and guidance with your risk assessment process from a Chartered Health & Safety Consultant, we would be delighted to hear from you.
We can help by sending a BSI-qualified Lead Auditor to conduct a full and comprehensive analysis of any aspect of your health and safety systems. We can then help you address any areas of weakness that are identified.
A BSI-qualified auditor can work with you to get your health and safety management systems ready for external audit as part of a seamless service that culminates in your business being awarded certification and winning those major works contracts.
If an incident occurs we can help you with both the immediate response, as well as follow-up procedures. We can carry out a full root cause analysis of the incident to learn what the causal factors were and then help you to ensure that further potential incidents don’t happen again.
We can develop bespoke on-line or face-to-face training solutions for you. We can also provide training courses leading to internationally recognised health and safety qualifications.
