Health & Safety in the workplace is of the utmost importance. A fully comprehensive and proactive health & safety policy will have elements that are required by law but other elements can improve staff welfare, wellbeing and efficiency. Staff that are looked after by their employers, as well as staff that have the relevant training or skills in health & safety, will often feel empowered and protected. The ability to help should an emergency occur or be able to deliver first aid as well as the ability to save lives is a wonderful thing and may be vital and a legal requirement for certain businesses.

Health and safety can be a confusing topic for business owners who are trying to ascertain and understand their legal requirements. There is also sometimes confusion as to what is a ‘recommendation’ and what is a legal requirement that has to be put in place in the workplace and other factors that need to be considered depending on the level of risk that workers may face in the workplace. This is why a health & safety consultancy is ideally suited to allow you to identify recommendations, legal requirements and ensure that you are fully compliant and approaching the health and wellbeing of your staff.

You Are Able to Create a Full Health & Safety Policy

 

The size and level of risk that your business faces are likely factors that will affect your health and safety policy and your legal requirements. Do you have an appointed person that is responsible for the health and safety of your business premises? Do you require staff that are fully trained in first aid or emergency first aid? You are able to use online tools and resources from the HSE but a health and safety consultancy ensures that all areas are covered and you are able to create an action plan and follow up.

There is a difference as discussed between legal requirements and recommendations but a number of these recommendations can massively increase the efficiency and welfare of your staff. Businesses that put in place proactive and extensive health and safety policies can see extensive benefits such as a reduction in sick days, increases in staff productivity and proactiveness. 

These are just some of the benefits of having a comprehensive policy that doesn’t just tick the boxes in terms of legal requirements. Whatever your requirements, we will ensure that you have a plan that you can implement and that recommendations, as well as the benefits, are clearly conveyed to you.
