Health and safety simplified

You may think that health and safety issues only concern larger companies and that it’s far too complicated.  We’ve found this great leaflet from the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), which will help you to comply with the law and manage health and safety in your business.

Health and safety laws apply to all businesses, no matter how small.  As an employer, or a self-employed person, you are responsible for health and safety in your business.  You need to take the right precautions to reduce the risks of workplace dangers and to provide a safe working environment.

If you have five or more employees, you must have a written policy, but don’t worry, this needed be complicated and the HSE provides a template which you can download from the Member’s Area (you’ll need to login first).
