Health & Safety at work isn’t a subject every business wants to hear about. It can be seen as a bureaucratic headache, one more task to fit in. Whatever your viewpoint on Health & Safety in the workplace, it is a subject that all businesses of all size need to embrace. There is a legislative obligation to meet and every company has a duty of care to its employees.
Malty Professional Services is an expert in all aspects of Health & Safety procedures, practices and policies. We work with businesses to ensure Health & Safety measures are put in place and met, as well as consulting on all Health & Safety management plans. Here’s why you should use Maltby Professional Services for your Health & Safety strategy.
Health & Safety in the workplace is a legal requirement.
It applies to every type and size of business. The risks to employees exist whatever your industry. We understand that the law can be a minefield to navigate and that it can be difficult to know exactly what you need to do to keep your employees safe. We use our years of experience to tailor your needs to your business. Gap Analysis will help to determine what’s missing between your requirements and your current actions. One size doesn’t fit all and we will advise you on the relevant procedures you need to implement – and how to incorporate them into your business model.
Make Sure You Comply With Your Business Insurance
Any business that has employees needs employers’ liability insurance. It helps to pay any compensation costs arising from accidents in the workplace. But if you are falling short of your Health & Safety legal obligations, you will find your insurance is less likely to pay out. Maltby Professional Services can advise you on the steps you need to take to be compliant.
Protect Your Business
The average fine for a Health & Safety conviction in 2018/19 was £15,000. Even if your business can afford such a fee, wouldn’t it be worth investing a tiny proportion of that sum into Health & Safety training? We train staff in the effective use of equipment.
