Why do we need a health and safety audit?
The first step in tackling your health and safety responsibilities is having a health and safety audit to show you where you can improve and where your potential liabilities lie. Without a thorough health and safety audit, businesses are just hoping that they have all bases covered, but hope is never a good policy.
What are our responsibilities?
You are legally responsible for ensuring health and safety risks are minimised through understanding those risks and taking avoiding action. Health and safety risks should be assessed once a year, or more often in certain high risk situations. If you are unsure how often you need to assess your health and safety risks, call us today for some no-nonsense advice.
Don’t wait until you get that unannounced visit from the HSE. Be prepared, get a health and safety audit now, so you know your risks and have your legal obligations covered.
Penalties for each health and safety violation are now based upon your turnover, not profit but turnover gross, per violation. So act now and give us a call on 0800 043 3169.
