Do you think Health & Safety is just common sense and anyone can do it?

Looking after a company’s Health & Safety is no easy-going job and this is where we can help. It is a vital part of your business that needs to be considered to protect not only your company but more importantly your employees and your visitors.

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) have quoted the following figures for work related injuries in 2014/15:

  • 142 workers were killed at work
  • 611,000 workers sustained non-fatal injuries at work
  • Of these 611,000 workers, 152,000 workers spent over 7 days absent from work
  • An estimated 4.1million working days were lost due to workplace injuries

These figures are difficult to ignore and clear to see it takes more than just common sense to avoid an accident.

Health & Safety is the most important aspect for all companies to get right in a bid to help mitigate risk and improve compliance. It doesn’t need to be complicated but areas cannot be overlooked such as:

Did you know that any business must get help from a competent person to enable you to meet the requirements of Health and Safety law?

Your appointed competent person can either be an employee supported by an external Health & Safety resource or purely an external Health & Safety company.

By appointing Agility Risk & Compliance you will have peace of mind that your company’s needs are met with a good balance of training, skills, experience and knowledge, a complete package tailored to your business.
