With the potential of Directors being prosecuted and large fines being handed out, the last thing you need is an accident to occur on your site.
Tip 1 - Ensure you have a health and safety policy if you have more than 5 employees. Make sure it details individuals responsibilities and that they are aware of these.
Tip 2 - Ensure you have maintenance records for your fire alarms, electrics, asbestos, gas etc. Failure to have these is an offence.
Tip 3 - Ensure staff have been trained. Not only are you legally obliged to give your staff training , but it can really help defend a claim.
Tip 4 - Hire a competent person. All businesses over 5 employees must have access to a competent person. To have a full time safety professional is out of reach to most small businesses, so for the price of a good accountant, you can hire a consultant to act as your competent person on your behalf.
