The Health & Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 is the primary piece of legislation covering occupational health and safety in Great Britain.  It imposes general duties on everybody connected with work.

Many businesses find work related health and safety legislation confusing, but managing company/organisation health and safety doesn’t need to be complicated, time-consuming or expensive.

Health and safety is about preventing people from being harmed or becoming ill through work activities.

A structured approach to health and safety enables a company to: 

  • Eliminate or minimise risk to employees and other interested parties
  • Maintain and continually improve on health and safety performance
  • Ensure compliance within health and safety ​legislation
  • Demonstrate this conformance to others
  • Seek certification of the health and safety management system by an external organisation, if deemed appropriate

To keep up to date with changes in legislation, many consultancy businesses and governing bodies operate newsletter subscription services that issue regular legislation update bulletins by email.

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) provide regular updates and Approved Codes of Practices (ACOPs) on their website and also issue regular email news bulletins.

Here at Quest we endeavour to keep our clients up to date by reviewing the information published and ensuring you are made aware of relevant content.

Audit

Our periodic independent health and safety audit will help to ensure that your Safety Management System remains suitable. We would generally advise that you have one full audit completed annually.
