What's Cooking in Health & Safety
Health and safety can be a minefield for any employer. Complex laws, risk assessment, statutory requirements and liability can make you, as an employer, want to avoid the issue in the hope that you’ll be lucky that an accident, injury or even a death doesn’t occur.
That’s gambling with your business and you may find yourself losing that business, liable to incur fines, possible imprisonment and living with the fact that you allowed something preventable to happen which could injure, scar or maim someone you work with or someone you know who visits your business.
So what can you do? Well, this ebook can help you to understand what requirements need to be met under the legislation. It should provide you with enough information and sample documents you need to make sure you, the people you employ and patrons to your business are healthy, safe to return again and again.
As an employer or if you own your own business, it is your legal duty to protect your staff, visitors, customers, clients, contractors and any persons who enter your premises, usually with your consent, no matter what that premises is.
Health and safety law is there to protect the people who you employ, who visit you, who carry out contracted work for you or who you temporarily employ; whether as a builder who is carrying out work on your premises, to the waiters, waitresses, kitchen and restaurant staff you employ and your customers.
