Health and safety laws are there to protect you, your employees and the public from workplace dangers. Breaches of these laws can have serious consequences if your policies and procedures are out of date, that’s if you have any!
If you’ve been fortunate enough to never encounter a serious health and safety incident, you may be surprised to find out just how significant the cost of non-compliance can be.
In fact, according to the latest HSE statistics, average fines for health and safety breaches have skyrocketed 381% since sentencing guidelines were introduced, from £27,000 per conviction in 2014/15 to a staggering £130,000 per conviction.
Financial penalties aside, there’s also the human cost, loss of productivity and reputational damage to consider.
With so much at stake, leaning on a health and safety consultancy can dramatically reduce risk to your workforce and help to protect your bottom line.
