Health and Safety

Health and Safety Management is the strategy for eliminating or reducing hazards so that people are not injured or affected by disease. Good Health and Safety Management allows compliance with legislation and this is spearheaded by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

The case for effective management of occupational health and safety is now overwhelming. It is not just regulatory and ethical issues, studies have shown there are also sound economic reasons for reducing work-related accidents and ill health and for improving the quality of your work environment.

Without being able to demonstrate that you have robust health and safety systems in place you may be unable to win work from key customers whom are now demanding that their suppliers have a healthy and safe working environment for their employees. The costs of accidents and ill-health can have a significant negative effect on the financial viability of an organisation.
