HEALTH AND SAFETY LAW CONSULTANTS AND LAWYERS
The biggest asset of any organisation is its human capital. There are several legislations serving the primary purpose of safeguarding the employee’s interests and ensuring that their rights are duly recognised. These rights extend to the environment in which they work and how safe it is for them. Health and safety, as well as the environment in which a business operates have therefore become very important in recent times. Every employee has a right to work in a healthy and safe environment. Where this is found not to be the case and that workers are subjected to less than acceptable standards at work, there may be a very steep price to pay. The primary legislation on health and safety at work is the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. Worse than any financial penalty is the possibility of the media getting a hold of the story and rendering the reputation of the organisation in tatters.
Our advice to businesses; small, medium or large, is that health and safety matters as well as the environment in which they operate now require serious consideration. The need to adopt management systems that make adequate provisions for the implementation, monitoring and improvement of health and safety policies as the need arises for the latter must be embraced now more than ever.
