Blue Lemon Health and Safety Software for Small Businesses
Health and safety in the workplace is a very serious subject in the UK. There are strict health and safety laws in place to help make sure that all business owners comply with current policies to provide a safe and hazard-free working environment for all employees, as well as for anyone visiting their commercial premises, whether that be members of the public or contractors carrying out any work on the premises.
Providing a safe working environment is essential if a business owner wants to retain their skilled staff. If your staff don’t feel safe and confident while carrying out their duties within the workplace, then you are more likely to lose staff because they would prefer to work in a safe environment.
Conducting risk assessments
In the case of a small business owner, eliminating potential hazards and accident risks in the workplace can be relatively easy, especially when working from smaller business premises than a much larger company.
Conducting regular risk assessments is essential here. You should make sure that all walkways and corridors are free from obstructions and that any fire escapes are not blocked by furniture or clutter that could hinder escapes during a fire emergency.
Looking for potential trip hazards is another thing to check for, especially in low lighting where visibility will be poor.
Health and safety reporting and recording
It is one thing to regularly conduct risk assessments to keep your employees safe, but you also need to properly record your actions and result. You will also need to keep a good reporting system for when any accidents or incidents happen in the workplace.
