Health and safety is a vast area of law and regulation, which makes the task of compliance for businesses seem a daunting one. This process is also necessary, because making your workplace a safe place will not only keep your business on the right side of the law but is also a wise investment that will save you time and money in the future.
Whatever the size of a business, the employer is legally required to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and any other people who might be affected by their activities, by assessing risks of injury or damage to health that could occur in the workplace and taking steps to manage and control these.
At Palmers Solicitors, we provide a range of services to help employers meet their health and safety compliance responsibilities, including:
- health and safety policies
- general workplace risk assessments
- risk management reports
- fire risk assessments
- health and safety audits
- competent person services
We also offer a health and safety helpline service, which enables businesses to speak directly to a qualified expert, to assist with queries regarding health and safety law or best practice guidance.
