Good health and safety makes good business sense. Your staff are your biggest assets but also your biggest investment, and their health, safety and wellbeing is important to ensure they work productively and your organisation achieves its goals. It is estimated that a major injury costs an employer in the region of £40,000, and an injury causing absence from work for as little as three days costs approximately £5,000. These costs are considerably more if enforcement action is taken.
New sentencing guidelines were introduced in 2016 and they have significantly changed the landscape of health and safety fines. Factors such as your annual turnover and how you manage health and safety are taken into consideration, rather than an injury itself. Six and seven figure sums are now commonplace; even incidents that have resulted in minor or no injuries are attracting significant fines.
Our Health, Safety and Wellbeing team brings a sensible, risk aware approach to health and safety management. Risk is a part of life and our philosophy is that you should not attempt to eliminate all risks. We have a proven track record of supporting our customers to develop a reasonable approach to risk management that supports the achievement of their priorities and demonstrates the value they put in their employees.
