Keeping your employees safe at work
Being a business owner comes with a lot of responsibilities and one that is not to be taken lightly is your responsibility to keep your employees and visitors to your building safe. There are many ways in which this needs to be done and the Health and Safety Executive or HSE can give you guidance on the policies and practices that you need to be complying with in all aspects of your business.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your place of work is safe for your employees and this includes carrying out regular risk assessments for any equipment that you use as well as your general work area. Slips, trips and falls can occur when there are trailing leads left out in the open and when there are piles of items left in hallways and around untidy desk spaces. Your business needs to have policies and procedures in place to minimise these risks as much as possible.
Fire risk is another area that you need to assess. This will include completing a risk assessment specifically in relation to fire and implementing measures to help reduce risk. It can be quite a daunting area to lookat and a Fire Risk Assessment Bristol company such as Keloscape can help you with this and can also help with giving you an understanding of what your responsibilities are and how best to ensure that your business is as fire safe as possible.
