Health & Safety

The regulations of Health & Safety in the workplace has undergone a revolution since the Health & Safety at Work etc Act came into being in 1974. New regulations arrive with ever increasing frequency, making it very difficult for employers to keep up to date and comply with the law and the recent imprisonment of a company director for safety failures has made everybody sit up and take notice. Society at large now expects to be protected from risk in every situation, and this is reflected in the growth in what has become commonly known as “ambulance chasers” i.e. companies advertising no win no fee arrangements for compensation claims.

Everyone wants to protect their staff from injury and ill health and want to protect themselves from prosecution – but how can you do that when it takes you all your time to run the business.
