We’re Here to Safeguard Local Businesses

Protecting people through compliant places and workspaces

Your business must follow stringent legal obligations to remain compliant. If you do not stay compliant, breaches of the Health and Safety at Work Act can carry high financial large penalties.

The welfare of your people in your business premises is crucial. They deserve a place with the lowest amount of potential hazards. A place that has been thoroughly assessed. A place that is safe. 

You have given your employees a job, now give them the tools to do it. We can help you brief, train, and assess them to make sure safety is built in to everything they do.

Your questions answered.

How often do we need to carry out a new risk assessment?2021-11-20T17:27:55+00:00

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) states that your organisation needs to regularly review your health and safety risk assessment to ensure that the risks your employees face have not changed. However, there is no legal time frame for reviewing your risk assessment, and HSE strongly recommend that risk assessments are carried out on an annual basis.

What health and safety documentation does my business need?2021-11-20T17:28:29+00:00

The documentation your business requires varies depending on the inherent risks presented to your business, and the activities it carries out. However, it is good practice to get the following documents in place as soon as possible. These documents are a health and safety policy, risk assessment, fire risk assessment, accident records book and health and safety law poster.

Does health and safety law only apply to larger businesses?2021-11-20T18:18:47+00:00

Health and safety laws apply to each and every business. However, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) understands that it would not be proportionate for a two-person photography business to have the same health and safety obligations as a national construction company. So, even as a new business, you must pay attention to your health and safety obligations.

What are my health and safety obligations as an employer?2021-11-20T18:18:38+00:00

UK health and safety legislation sets a variety of obligations for employers. These relate to the identification and mitigation of workplace risks, giving employees adequate training and protective equipment, and providing adequate first aid and incident reporting mechanisms.
