If you think health and safety has to be complicated – it doesn't.
Health and safety prosecutions are becoming more common, with increases in fines and even imprisonment for breaches in health and safety compliance. Penalties for non-compliance include unlimited fines against the business and/or individuals and prosecution, leading to reputation damage and possibly loss of business.
Employers have a duty in law to protect their employees from harm while in employment and to provide a comfortable, safe environment in which to perform their duties.
Companies should have a health and safety management system in place and review it periodically, in particular, the way in which their activities are managed and organised by senior management.
Health and Safety Compliance audits assist businesses in assessing the effectiveness of health and safety management systems and ensure that all aspects of managing risks in the workplace are monitored.
Walker Health & Safety Services offers comprehensive health and safety compliance auditing which are carried out in accordance with the requirements of UK legislation and the principles contained in the Health & Safety Executive guidance on health and safety management systems, HSG65 – Successful Health and Safety Management.
