But what is Health and Safety?
Workplace health and safety is all about sensibly managing risks to protect your workers and your business. Good health and safety management is characterised by strong leadership involving your managers, workers, suppliers, contractors, and customers. In a global context, health and safety are also an essential part of the movement towards sustainable development.
Why is it important?
It’s good to know the benefits, so we’ve listed 10 reasons why health and safety is important.
It is morally right to ensure your workers return home safe and healthy at the end of every working day.
By protecting your workers, you reduce absences, ensuring that your workplace is more efficient and productive.
Research shows that workers are more productive in workplaces that are committed to health and safety.
Reducing down-time caused by illness and accidents means less disruption – and saves your business money.
In United Kingdom, health and safety legislation is criminal law and you are legally obliged to comply with it. Legal breaches can result in prosecution, fines and even imprisonment of senior executives.
To attract investors and partnerships you may need to demonstrate your commitment to sustainability and corporate social responsibility, which will include how you protect your workers.
Increasingly, customers want to buy products and services that are produced ethically – so you also need to think about the work practices throughout your supply chain and deal only with ethical suppliers that protect their workforce.
More and more, job hunters – particularly Millennials and Generation Z – seek roles with employers who share their values, so without strong corporate responsibility and sustainability practices you may struggle to attract or retain the best employees.
A good health and safety record is a source of competitive advantage: it builds trust in your reputation and brand, while poor health and safety performance will directly affect profitability and can result in loss of trade or even closure of the business.
Good health and safety at work secures long-term benefits for you, your business and the wider community.
If you are looking to train yourself or your staff on the basics of health and safety, we have many courses for all levels within the business.
