Health and safety legislation - help is at hand from Engaging Safety

Date published: 06 February 2017

Whether a director, a manager or an employee, everyone has the right to a safe and healthy environment in which to work. In addition, we all have a duty under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 to ensure that no-one is put at risk of injury or ill health by what we do.

Ask yourself three simple questions:

  • Are you compliant?
  • Do you care about your workforce?
  • Do you care about the environment?

Having a progressive, proactive health and safety management system has benefits for everyone, enhancing your profile, reducing your insurance premiums and reducing absenteeism.

Ensure you are complying with health and safety legislation with an initial informal discussion with Engaging Safety Limited.

Engaging Safety is committed to providing a wide range of health and safety training and advice, including nationally recognised courses all at affordable prices across a wide range of business sectors. Tailored packages to fit your individual training needs are also available, ranging from manual handling processes to working at heights and everything in between.
