Putting the right safeguards in place to protect a firm’s employees, customers and members of the public should be a top priority for any business.
The reputational damage and costs from an accident at a business’ premises, worksite or any work-related illness could be substantial, so it is important that businesses understand their legal obligations.
Businesses also employing five or more employees also have a legal duty to have a written statement in place setting out their general health and safety policy with respect to their employees and organisation.
