Health and Safety Services

Health and safety is an increasing concern for employers and businesses. New legislation is constantly being introduced, making it difficult for businesses to keep abreast of recent developments and ensure their health and safety policies are legally compliant and updated.

The cost of neglecting health and safety is all too clear. In 2008/09 there were 180 workers killed through injury in the UK alone, and a further 131,895 were seriously injured. In the same year, the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) and the ORR (Office of Rail Regulation) successfully prosecuted 1245 health and safety offences, with a further 329 offences prosecuted by local authorities.

As a result of the increasing need for health and safety compliance in the UK, many business services providers are now offering a broad range of tailored services to help employers fulfil their legal obligations. Such services include the following:

  • Bespoke health and safety documentation
  • Updated & legally compliant health and safety policies and employee handbooks
  • Dedicated consultants who can make site inspections and provide recommendations
  • Guaranteed 24-hour advice help-lines
  • Financial assistance to cover the cost of defence in the event of a prosecution

The only thing these companies CANNOT do is face criminal prosecution on behalf of employers who are found responsible for a serious breach of health and safety law. Because failure to comply with health and safety legislation is a criminal offence, the penalties are severe and can lead to fines and imprisonment. This makes it all the more crucial to ensure that your company has the right level of protection in place. Above all, safer working conditions will ensure the safety of your employees and lead to a happier, safer and more secure working environment for your workforce.
