Health and Safety

Health and Safety

All businesses have to manage and assess Health and Safety. Accidents can damage your business – they will happen, you can as ‘reasonably practicably’ minimise the risk.

A risk assessment is an important tool in protecting your workers and your business. It helps you focus on those risks that have the potential to cause harm. Most of these can be readily controlled by straightforward measures.

Once the assessment is complete and you put the results into practice with an action plan if necessary to deal with the most important issues first you may see a better way to work. Whatever the result you are legally bound to consider Health and Safety – but this should not be seen as a bind.

There are five steps to any risk assessment:

  • identify the hazards
  • decide who might be harmed by them and how
  • evaluate the risks and decide on precautions
  • record your findings and implement them
  • review your assessment and update it if necessary

Don’t make the process complicated – Health and safety is there to make the business safer to work in and a safer place for your customers.

In all cases you should involve your staff, make them part of the process
