Health and Safety at Work

  • Displaying specific information on the business premises
  • Ensuring the workplace is safe for both employees and visitors
  • Provision of welfare facilities for employees
  • Carrying out risk assessments
  • Maintaining accurate records related to aspects of health and safety
  • Provision of health and safety training to employees
