Occupational health and safety
Occupational health and safety is a legal requirement in the UK irrespective of whether you have employees or are self-employed. Duties require you to protect the health, safety and welfare of your employees (or yourself if self-employed) and the health and safety of those that come into contact with your business.
UK law requires that a person responsible for the health and safety management in their organisation undertake risk assessments and manage the risk identified. Risk assessments can be generic (e.g. the Management Regulations) and specific (e.g. manual handling, COSHH, etc.) and Guardian can help. Using appropriate risk assessments, we can develop policies and procedures that blend seemlessly with your practices.
In the event of an incident or accident, you need to ensure that your organisation identifies the root cause of the accident and adopts techniques to avoid or manage the risks posed. Guardian can provide the independent analytical review of the accident/incident and provide those critical recommendations to avoid it happening again.
We can advise your organisation on a range of health and safety management issues. More information? Please contact us.
