Health & Safety Management
Health & Safety Management
On 4th April 2016, the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 came into being. It’s a new way of thinking. People need to get home safely so even if you are a small business, like a cafe or a hair salon for example, or are administration based, you still must have a relevant health and safety plan.
What do you need to do?
It will no longer be good enough to say “yes, we are doing things safely here”. Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 you will need to be able to provide evidence that …
All staff have been trained for the work they do and the risks involved
Any records of serious accidents, injuries and events are kept for 5 years
All staff have access to practical advice and information
Your equipment and work areas undergo regular checks and are safe
All staff are actively involved in Health and Safety matters
You have safety plans in place to do the work safely

We give you the tools to help bring your whole team together for the same purpose.
Site Specific Safety Plans (SSSPs)
You value your employees, clients, contractors and visitors so developing, implementing and monitoring a Site Specific Safety Plan allows them to be protected from harm. And it makes good business sense as it’s likely to increase productivity and reduce the cost impact on your business of any downtime from employee injuries.
You want to achieve the ‘WOW’ factor at your event and reduce the risk of an injury or incident occuring. Developing, implementing and monitoring an Event Specific Safety Plan makes good business sense. Your employees will feel more valued and your clients, contractors, vendors and visitors will be protected from harm.
How investing in Health and Safety can improve your bottom line
Health and Safety is often viewed as an expense rather than an investment because it’s considered to be a cost of doing business – something we have to do to maintain ‘compliance’. But what if we rethink how we allocate resources to Health and Safety, and instead of viewing it as a cost, we consider it to be an investment that contributes to our bottom line?
Can good Health and Safety Systems actually provide a good return on investment?
