Health & Safety Fines, fatalities
South West Water, KFC, Iceland, Wilko, Howden Joinery, the list goes on. In just a single year, all of these big name companies fell foul of UK health and safety law. The fines levied against them were at least £1 million each, not to mention the human cost in terms of both injuries and fatalities.
You may think you have every angle covered when it comes to the health and safety of your employees but all it takes is one missing handrail (as in the case of Iceland) or a lack of access to protective gloves (as in the case of KFC), to result in fines, potential injuries or fatalities and ultimately the failure of your organisation to protect its people.
Attention to detail and a thorough understanding of health and safety legislation are essential to make sure you are compliant. None expects you to have this expertise or knowledge in-house but everyone, from your customers to the judicial system, expects you to follow the letter of the law when it comes to health and safety. There really is no room for error and that’s why it is important to book a health and safety audit as soon as possible.
