Why Focusing on Health & Safety Makes Good Business Sense
The ‘Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations’ require employers to:
Assess the risk that employees face regarding their Health and Safety, and act to reduce these risks.
Appoint a person to oversee Health and Safety management, who can provide competent advice.
Provide employee Health and Safety training.
Produce a written Health and Safety policy.
These legal requirements can be achieved by introducing a specific Health and Safety management plan to your business. Designing a plan that matches your business’s needs ensures that your business complies with the law and can help your business to run smoothly.
Benefits of a Health and Safety Management System
Looking after staff
Correct management of health and safety efficiently reduces the risk to staff of being injured at work. When staff are given training and information, they gain an understanding of how they can prevent and avoid workplace danger, putting them in a much safer position. Looking after and engaging with your employees is beneficial for your business because it shows staff members that you care about them, which makes them feel important and happy. Happy staff have higher productivity, increased ambition, and improved creativity.
Good health and safety plans can be financially beneficial to your business. A reduction in workplace injuries equates to a reduction in incident claims; further resulting in a reduction in the costs of expensive legal procedures and the resulting pay outs. Furthermore, a focus on H&S can lead to a reduction in the risk of damaged property. For example, fires are not only a risk to staff, but are damaging to inventory and belongings. By reducing the occurrence of fires, you save money on the cost of replacement or repair. Health and safety management systems are also recognised by insurance companies: good systems help to reduce insurance fees.
Good health and safety management helps you to build a positive reputation with clients, staff, and other stakeholders. When people are satisfied, they share this satisfaction with friends and associates; creating a good relation between your business and the public. Good relations can help to increase sales through generation of more custom, which is positive for business growth.
