Is your business health and safety compliant?

It may be but there are always ways to ensure that you have everything covered when it comes to your office space, employees and company assets. Here are some tips for keeping your business ‘health and safety’ compliant:

  • Signs and indicators: Make sure that any areas that are off limits because of health and safety concerns such as business electricity main supplies or areas that have been wardened off as ‘slippery surfaces’ or ‘danger of tripping’ are indicated as such.
  • Risk assessment: Have your business go through a risk assessment by a licensed professional so that you can see where you could improve areas of risk before they cause problems.
  • Employees: make sure that your employees are aware of their rights when it comes to taking sick leave as this may relieve them to know that they can take time off to get better. You can also make sure that you have fully equipped everyone with business health insurance so that if something does go wrong while they are working for you, their health interests as well as your finances are fully covered.
  • Reports: make sure that you know how to process complaints of any health and safety incidents so that you have a clear paper trail of what has happened, how it could be fixed and how to ensure whoever is involved is provided with solutions or compensation for their complaint.
  • Wardens: ensure that a few of your employees are trained as first aid or fire wardens for the office so that there will always be someone to quickly respond to an incident while you await for professional help.
