In your workplace health and safety measures are vital in order to ensure that your staff are supervised and safe from any dangers.
We can provide strategies in order to reduce the risk of health and safety issues and ensuring that they can be easily identified.
In this blog we will be discussing why you should make health and safety a top priority.
Your reputation depends on it
An incident in the workplace will usually attract widespread media and public attention. If the situation is handled competently, this can help to save serious reputational damage.
It is difficult to be precise about the costs of reputational damage to an organisation or company however it can severely damage your status.
If your organisation stays up to date with the latest updates in any policies, this will help to gain a wealth of knowledge and materials related to any changes.
Accidents are costly
It is a dangerous misconception that workplace accidents are recoverable through insurance.
Accident costs that are visible are easily recoverable but those that are invisible tend to be the most harmful to your business, it is estimated that hidden accidents can cost up to 10 times
more than insured problems. Some problems include; lost time, sick pay, production delays or legal costs.
That is why it is so important to ensure that you have performed the right risk assessments for all of your staff in order to protect you and your employees from unnecessary costs.
It’s the law
The Corporate Manslaughter Act of 2007 means failure to meet your responsibilities for health and safety as manager could result in imprisonment.
As a manager, safety falls within your role, as a result you will be held accountable for any failure to meet these requirements.
