Making your business COVID-19 Secure
Covid-19 has changed the way any business can operate. From a health and safety perspective, every business is now looking at a totally new risk profile where staff are potentially at risk coming to work, compared to what was previously seen as a low risk task.
Never has it been more important to have clear considered risk assessments that are specific to your business and activities to ensure both you and your staff can return to work safely.
To ensure the safety of a business and be compliant with health and safety law, it is crucial that employers seek professional advice when applying the guidance to a unique workplace situation.
Remove risk and find peace of mind though our sister company the Health and Safety Dept. Our qualified professionals will conduct a COVID-19 risk assessment and help you to understand what it is that you must do to make your business safe and legal before it reopens.
Maintaining health and safety in the workplace
Once you employ people, as well as keeping on the right side of employment law, you must abide by health and safety requirements.
Even the smallest office environment presents hazards and safeguarding risks that you as the employer must take responsibility for.
Examples of concerns that you might want to clarify with a health and safety consultant include:
Fire risk assessments
Providing or maintaining safe equipment
Working with substances safely
Establishing emergency procedures
The HR Dept can arrange for a health and safety consultant to inspect your workplace and make recommendations that will keep your employees safe and you compliant.
There are numerous benefits of outsourcing your health and safety management, including:
Health and safety management saves time!
Reading up on health and safety legislation for your business can be a time-consuming task. It can easily feel overwhelming sifting through documents as you try to identify the points that are most relevant to you and your business.
Outsourcing this task to a qualified health and safety expert takes a weight off your mind and frees up your time to focus on your core activities.
Reduce the risk with health and safety management in the workplace
By planning and pre-empting situations, your expertly advised health and safety policy can massively reduce risks for you and your business.
Think of it as a virtual safety net ready to catch you if you slip up.
The added value of outsourcing to professional health and safety management is knowing that you are receiving the most up-to-date and legally compliant health and safety advice.
The health and safety service that will save you money
Health and safety compliance is a legal requirement, yet the overhead cost of hiring a full or even part-time health and safety employee could be expensive, and not something you had originally budgeted for.
Outsourcing a health and safety service gives you the opportunity to talk with health and safety consultants, as and when you need the advice.
This cuts down on overhead costs and ensures that you are only paying for the advice you need, when you need it.
