Safeguarding the health and safety of your employees and customers is not just a ‘nice to have’ – it is a legal requirement. For any business with five employees or more (including the owner), a written risk assessment requires being conducted – as well as being reviewed on a regular basis.
As an employer, health and safety in the workplace is your responsibility and you need to take all reasonable precautions to reduce the risks of the workplace dangers and provide a safe environment for your employees and customers alike.
Legally, all premises are required to have a risk assessment and it is good practice for any business to undertake an annual review of the same. However, such responsibilities are often missed, or ignored, either due to a lack of understanding or because the business is too busy, and things get overlooked. Yet the potential for hefty fines, as well as the ensuing poor publicity for non-compliance, can damage your business in the longer term.
Suresite has been helping businesses to comply with their health and safety responsibilities since 1994. Our management team, and nationwide assessors will help ensure compliance by confirming whether appropriate health and safety procedures are in place. We will also keep you fully aware of legislative changes and any developments within your industry.
We have developed a modular approach to our assessments to ensure we cover as many aspects as possible in an effective and cost-efficient manner. All of these are designed to help you reach and maintain legal safety compliance for your business.
Our risk assessment modules examine areas relating to slips, trips, falls, fire compliance, petrol forecourt safety (fire and explosion risks under DSEAR), site audits, mechanics workshops and health and safety assessments for convenience stores.
