Five common Health and Safety mistakes (and how to avoid them)

At HS Direct, we’ve spent over 15 years helping small and medium sized businesses across the UK take control of their Health and Safety and stay compliant.

Our team of safety compliance consultants support employers to create safer and more effective businesses and when it comes to getting Health and Safety right, getting the basics right forms the backbone of your compliance. Thanks to our many years of working with businesses across the country – especially during these difficult times – we know that making sure you leave no stone unturned is one of the most important steps to creating a positive and proactive culture of Health & Safety in your business.

Here are some frequent slip-ups we see, and some questions you can ask yourself to check you’ve got what you need in place, which include:

  • The basics – fire safety, First Aid and housekeeping and hygiene
  • The ramifications of taking shortcuts with safety compliance and measures
  • Risk assessments and controls – communicating these across your business
  • Ensuring your employees are fully trained and your legal duties as an employer/business owner
  • Health and Safety monitoring and internal inspections
