Why is Health and Safety Important?

So why is health and safety at work important to you?

Whether you are an employer, manager or supervisor or an employee, health and safety is an integral part of everyday life. The mission of the HSE is to ensure that the risks to health and safety are properly controlled by all UK businesses

Employers and their staff want to provide the highest possible standards of health safety for themselves and their clients, contractors and visitors.

Health and safety legislation has a great influence on employers as failure to compile can lead to criminal and civil action which can be very costly in terms of time and money.

Organisations found guilty in the Criminal Courts can have very large fines imposed upon them alongside any Civil claims from the injured person which may or may not be cover by the insurers.
