Health and Safety in the Workplace

Preventing accidents and ill health caused by work is a key priority for everyone at work. As the owner or manager of a business you know that competent employees are valuable. Over 200 people are killed each year in accidents at work, over one million people are injured, and over two million suffer illnesses caused by, or made worse by, their work. The law requires that you provide whatever information, instruction and training is needed to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of your employees.
