Health & Safety

There is a mountain of legislation in this country relating to Health & Safety obligations for Employers, Managing Agents and even personal responsibilities for Employees.

New draconian sentencing guidelines for H&S offences are based upon the Culpability of the offender and the level of Harm Risked. Even if the actual potential harm is not realised, the level of fine is aimed at what could have happened.

This makes identifying the risk of injury from any eventuality more important than ever and you must ensure that any risk assessor working for you is capable of understanding this when carrying out consultancy work for you.
