Health and Safety Services Can Save Lives. Fact!
Health and safety services are there for businesses to use. The legislations surrounding health and safety can be confusing and time consuming and unfortunately many businesses find they are taken to court and prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive for breaching one or more of the many regulations and laws designed to protect the lives of others.
Four Workers Killed in Birmingham Alone
During the last twelve months a total of four people died in the workplace in Birmingham and the Black Country. In addition to the deaths a further 900 were seriously harmed in accidents which could have been avoided. The Health and Safety Executive have called out to employers warning them to be vigilant when it comes to the health and safety of others. The fresh warning comes at the start of the New Year after the numbers increased during 2010/2011.
Legal Responsibilities Cannot Be Ignored
As an employee it is essential to remember that it is their legal duty to do all that is possible to create a safe environment in the workplace. Health and safety services can help you to stay within the law by choosing to gain assistance from experts who can explain what is expected by the HSE. Combine this knowledge with training, auditing and risk assessments and your workplace can become safer while you follow the laws regarding what is expected.
High Number of Work Related Deaths Recorded
The total statistics for Great Britain are workplace deaths 171 and 24,700 major injuries. This is an increase on the previous year and goes to show that not everyone is following the legislations. Taking risks has resulted in many people suffering and the HSE has prosecuted many firms throughout the year for their lapses in health and safety.
