Managing Health and Safety doesn’t have to be complicated, costly or time-consuming. In fact it’s easier than you think. If you have taken reasonable steps to prevent accidents or harm to your employees (and the injury or illness was caused after 1 October 2013), you shouldn’t have to pay compensation
For many businesses, all that’s required is a basic series of practical tasks that protect people from harm and at the same time protect the future success and growth of your business. In general, health and safety laws apply to all businesses. As an employer, or a self-employed person, you are responsible for Health and Safety in your business. Health and Safety laws are there to protect the children in your care, your employees, you and the parents/public from workplace dangers.
The approach you take should be proportionate to the size of your business and the nature of your business activity. For most small, low-risk businesses the steps you need to take are straightforward. If you have fewer than five employees you don’t have to write down your risk assessment or your Health and Safety policy.
