Health & Safety

Each day in the UK at least one person is killed and over 6,000 are injured at their places of work (sources: www.hse.gov.uk - "Fatal injuries statistics" & "Self reported work related illness and workplace injuries 2008/2009"), and many more report in sick owing to work related stress or illness. If you run a business, you have a responsibility to protect the health and safety of your staff and others affected by your work.

With the appropriate health and safety management systems in place you will not only minimize the risks of accidents and injury, your business will benefit from less downtime.

The scope and influence of health and safety and employment law have increased significantly to become critical elements of a company’s business strategy. In today’s working environment even minor accidents or disputes can have potentially litigious and costly consequences.

The Corporate Manslaughter & Corporate Homicide Act 2007 came into effect in April 2008 with the specific objective of making it easier to secure a conviction against a Company who are in flagrant breach of Health & Safety Regulations which have resulted in an employee’s death. A successful prosecution gives the courts power to impose an unlimited fine and gives an indication of how seriously breaches of duties of care in relation to Health & Safety are taken.

Health and safety compliance can have a positive impact on insurance claims and insurers are looking closely at how premiums can be improved through evidenced H&S strategies.
