The Health and Safety Executive have created a website aimed at those running small to medium businesses with the intention of providing them will all the health and safety information they need in one place.
Information on the site is listed in sections such as: ‘How to manage health and safety’, ‘Your organisation’, ‘Your workers’ and ‘Your workplace’ and applies to all businesses regardless of size and number of workers. The sections contain relevant information about how companies can tackle the ‘basics of Health & Safety’ as well as issues to take into consideration in terms of your organisation and your workers’ health and safety.
Charlotte Murray, APHC PR & Marketing Manager commented: this tool is a great help to those small and medium business owners who are often overwhelmed with all the information available when it comes to Health & Safety. Finally all the information they need to comply with the law and prevent workplace accidents and ill health is available in one place. I would encourage all members to have a look and make sure all their information is up to date.
The toolkit is available on the Health and Safety Executive Website. Visit: http://www.hse.gov.uk/toolbox/introduction.htm for more information.
