What is Health and Safety?
The importance of workplace health and safety is paramount. It is not just there to protect staff, but also visitors, customers, sub-contractors, and the general public.
Business owners hold responsibility when it comes to workplace health and safety, from identifying risks to setting control measures to minimise the likelihood of workplace accidents. Being health and safety compliant is necessary for all businesses, not only because of law but being compliant can bring essential benefits to your business, including avoiding fines and legal costs which overall will result in saving money and improve employee morale by giving them peace of mind that they are safe within the workplace, which will enhance process efficiency and productivity.

Why should it be considered?
By law, your business is required to have access to a competent person in relation to health and safety and to have a Health and Safety Policy in the UK if you have five or more employees or a Safety Statement in Ireland if you have three or more employees.
As a business owner you have a legal obligation to ensure your policy/statement is up to date, meets legal regulation and is appropriate for your business to keep health and safety a priority as well as ensuring it is relevant, accurate, and effective.
Protecting employees, customers, and suppliers from harm should be a priority for all businesses. Accidents and work-related ill-health can only cause people harm but also damage morale, reputation, and cost money.
What impact will it have?
Implementing Health and Safety compliance procedures will help to protect you as an employer and your staff from injury, illness, or any other form of harm within the workplace. Having health and safety practices in place can help to prevent common workplace injuries from happening.
Ensuring the maintenance effective health and safety practices within the workplace can reduce absences and improve productivity meaning your business will save money on the costs of absences and recruiting new staff.
Maintain a Positive Reputation:
Having a good reputation is one of the most compelling attributes to any business. This can help to build customer and employee loyalty and help to create relationships with organisations who have the same values. Ensuring your business is known for providing a service that is compliant with health and safety laws and regulations will ensure your business will be the preferred choice to do business with.
