This can negatively affect the business, the employees, and the individual directors and senior managers of the company.

It is crucial that you comply with current UK laws under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974.

A serious breach of the law (sections two-six of the Health & Safety at Work etc. Act 1974) is punishable by an unlimited fine and, potentially, two years imprisonment.

Maintaining high standards is important for any business, whether it’s a construction company, a retail store, or an office environment.

The benefits of health & safety compliance

Following laws and procedures has a number of advantages. These include:

  • Absences can be reduced by providing a safe working environment. This will lead to fewer absences.
  • Taking steps to avoid employment tribunals: Workplace injuries can result in claims by your employees, which can be costly for you and negatively impact your public image.
  • By improving your company’s safety record, you will be able to attract talented employees. And promote a positive public image.
  • The higher the level of safety, the more efficiently your employees will perform their duties. Nonetheless, unsafe working environments do not promote confidence, which can negatively impact productivity.
  • Following safety procedures will keep your employees injury-free, so they can do their jobs on your behalf.
  • Less revenue downtime – by adhering to health and safety legislation, you’re less likely to have to shut down operations within your business, resulting in lost revenue.
