General Health & Safety - Did you know?

Ignorance to the Law is not a defence. You are better off knowing and understanding what you are legally required to do – this way you have a chance of PROTECTING BUSINESS – PREVENTING HARM!

Behavioural Safety - Did you know?

It is estimated that approximately 90% of all accidents are due to unsafe behaviours and only 10% are due to unsafe conditions! We can support you with Behavioural Leadership training and develop simple psychological tools & techniques, which can directly influence behaviours and reduce the likelihood of incidents or injuries.

Risk Assessment - Did you know?

All employers must identify all “reasonably foreseeable” risks and control them so as far as is “reasonably practicable”. We can assist and help you decipher these requirements by breaking them down into understandable, simplified bite-sized chunks and documented Risk Assessments.

Sentencing Guidelines Review - Did you know?

Health and safety offences are concerned with failures to manage risks to health and safety and do not
require proof that the offence caused any actual harm. The offence and related fines are for those who have created a risk of harm – you do not need to cause any harm / injury to be prosecuted.

Please revisit for any updates

Additional Information

Why should anyone Manage Health & Safety?

Most people (or businesses) do not intentionally wish to put their businesses, employees or others in harms way. They never intend to inflict unnecessary pain, harm or suffering to others, or their innocent families who are often affected most. Morally, managing Health & Safety is the right thing to do.

Under the Heath and Safety at Work Act (supported by many other Regulations), businesses and individuals have Legal Duties imposed upon them to ensure the health, safety and welfare of its employees and others. Failure to do so can ultimately result in prison sentences for those who are most negligent.

The cost of poor Health and Safety puts significant risk on any business. This includes potential down-time, investigations, prosecutions / fines, civil claims, increased insurance premiums, damage to property and poor reputation etc. Good Health and Safety reputations can support winning additional work and improved morale / productivity.
