As an employer you have a duty of care to ensure the health & safety of personnel within your premises, and the law comes down heavily on those companies who breach legislation and fail to comply with regulations.
- There were over 80,000 injuries reported in the UK
- 28% of these injuries were caused by slips or falls
- 24% of these injuries were caused through handling, lifting or carrying
- 133 workers were fatally injured
- 4.7 million days were lost due to reported workplace injury
Coupled with the fact that there were 636 prosecutions with a conviction rate of 94%, it is clear that employers need to take every precaution to protect themselves as well as their employees.
Regardless of legislation, promoting and maintaining good health and safety policies in the workplace helps to recruit and retain the best staff, reduce sickness levels and improve productivity and profitability.
