Health and Safety Audits Assistance
If you would like to begin conducting health and safety audits for your company, the expert solicitors can help to make sure your audits are correct, comprehensive and efficient. Failing to meet industry standards on health and safety is not only a bad business decision, it is also illegal and can have very serious consequences. When conducting audits, it is therefore essential that you seek help from those with a thorough knowledge of the relevant legislation in your sector, such as the expert solicitors at JMW.
Regular audits are the most effective way of preventing health and safety breaches. It can be surprising for firms to find that there are so many risks in their workplace that they had not considered, but even the smallest changes in business practices can result in a variety of new dangers that must be addressed.
Our team can:
- Comprehensively assess a workplace for risks
- Ensure you are up to date with the latest health and safety regulations for your sector
- Help identify future risk
- Put stringent guidelines in place to protect employees and visitors
- Review accident records
- Review trading practices
- Deal with enforcement notices
Having regular audits of health and safety works on two levels; it can prevent accidents occurring in the first place but also protect your firm from prosecution should the worst happen. If it can be shown that you had stringent health and safety measures in place then it is unlikely you will be vulnerable to legal action if an employee is injured while at your workplace.
