Is it time to audit your health and safety?
Are you confident that you’ve got health and safety covered?
If you can say, without a doubt, that you are confident in the procedures and processes you have in place for your workplace, then for the time being you can be sure that you have got your health and safety covered.
The optimum phrase in that sentence though was “without a doubt”. If you cannot be certain that you are protecting yourself, your employees and the public, then your business is in need of an audit of your health and safety.
Our team can help you understand what you need to implement with our audit service, get in touch to receive a free initial consultation.
Why Your Business Should Audit H&S
Health and safety laws apply to all businesses and as an employer you are responsible for the health and safety in your business, whether that be in an office, retail establishment, construction site, and so on.
Health and safety laws are not there to be a burden, but are intended to protect all parties. However, this only needs to be proportionate to the size of your business, and the type of activities you undertake.
All businesses are unique, which is why you have to have your own safety systems, procedures. With a health and safety audit, you can ensure you are meeting your specific requirements by law.
In addition, you understand the safety implications for your business from the onset, which will help as your business develops and grows. If changes occur in the business, it will impact whether you require an up to date health and safety audit.
