No one wants to hurt people or get hurt at work and getting health and safety management right also makes good business sense.
Accidents and illnesses can be costly both financially and reputationally.
If you are an employer, then under health and safety legislation you have to “appoint one or more competent persons to assist” with health and safety.
Making sure you get good professional assistance can save you time and money in the long run. IOSH have produced a useful booklet giving guidance on how to secure the right safety expertise.
