Compensation culture and employer’s liability insurance have made health and safety compliance an issue that can no longer be ignored.
Accidents at work will never be completely eradicated but, when they happen they can take up a significant amount of management time.
Keystone Risk Management Limited have worked with several businesses who believed they needed to involve outside help after a visit from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or a letter from their insurers pointing out their legislative duties as an employer.
Small business owners are often well intentioned but simply do not have the time to manage a safety culture. Outsourcing your health and safety function is the only cost effective way to stay within the law and benefit from good employee relations as well as lessen the claims against accidents.
Health and safety inspections are an important monitoring tool to ensure that hazards remain controlled and that employees and others are not at risk. They should be carried out regularly by both internal and external staff. We at Keystone Risk Management Limited can carry out full inspections at any or all of your premises. The inspection would cover all physical parts of the premises, as well as documentation on-site and the activities undertaken at the time.
