Health and Safety Risk Assessments in the workplace is an extremely important consideration for an employer, ensuring that your employees remain safe at work and protecting yourself from potentially damaging claims. Vision Safety can provide your business with a health & safety risk assessment to ensure you are meeting and surpassing all required health & safety guidelines. With a great deal of experience in all areas of employment law, you can enjoy complete peace of mind when putting your business in our hands. Any health or safety failure which leads to an employee sustaining an injury is likely to result in a claim for compensation being made against the company, something which has the potential to be devastating for the success of the business. Identifying health & safety risks depending on the nature of your business, the type of health & safety risks and the severity of these issues will differ greatly. In the traditional office environment slips, trips or falls will generally be the main concern, however in situations where machinery is operated the potential dangers are far more severe. It is vitally essential that all machinery is regularly tested to ensure it is working correctly, as well as making sure that all staff that operate such machines are fully trained and competent. Vision Safety’s health & safety risk assessment can ensure that your workers are not being placed at risk by unsafe machinery

Employers Health and Safety Responsibilities If you're an employer, health and safety responsibilities are not to be taken lightly. You have a legal duty to protect the employees, customers and members of the public on your premises; failure to take the right precautions can prove dangerous, causing injuries, permanent health damage, even disability or death. Moreover, failure to document and record that you are taking health and safety seriously could still land you in hot water if anything does go wrong. It's important to remember that – unlike employment tribunals – health and safety breaches are a matter for the criminal courts and carry harsh sentences. In fact, employers' health and safety responsibilities are very simple; it's usually simply a matter of making sure all the boxes are ticked. Of course, the difficulty comes in knowing exactly which boxes need to be ticked in your business, as every workplace and industry is subject to different health and safety rules. Another big stumbling block for larger businesses is that health and safety responsibilities are distributed among several different staff members, managers or HR staff, so it's easy to lose track of who is doing what.

Choose Vision Safety for expert Health & Safety audits that ensure all workplace risks are efficiently identified and mitigated.

Most businesses take their Health & Safety responsibilities very seriously and you are probably one of them.  Like many employers though, you might find it is not always easy to keep up to speed with all the new H&S regulatory requirements or keep track of how you as a business stack up against them.

Health & Safety audits are an important tool in ensuring compliance with current legislation that applies to the workplace. This generally involves a critical, in-depth examination of an organisation’s Health and Safety management system.
