Why is Health and Safety important in the workplace? What is your business missing by not making efforts towards compliance?


If there’s one aspect of business life that’s constantly changing, it’s Health & Safety. If you employ five or more staff it is your legal obligation to ensure you have a compliant Health and Safety Management system. Legislation designed to protect you, your workers, and your customers is there for a reason, and it’s up to you to ensure that your operations conform to all legislation that’s relevant to your sector. If as a business your found to be none compliant it could have massive implications from a significant fine to those found responsible serving a custodial sentence.

Why Outsource Your Health & Safety?

Staying on top of Health and Safety and ensuring your business remains compliant can at best feel cumbersome and time consuming, and at worst a nightmare, which is why outsourcing can be a huge benefit. A consultancy will be able to review where you currently are and help you understand any exposure or risk your business or organisation has. Some consultancies will help you manage your H&S by providing you with software support, others will audit your business or organisation annually to ensure you are compliant. Whereas Wirehouse, will provide ongoing support through an advice line, audits, software and regularly reviewing your systems and providing legislative updates.

By outsourcing Health and Safety, you are tapping into expert advice and support that will keep you on the right side of the law, and more importantly protect you, your staff and visitors.
