No matter what type of business you are, there is always the potential for an accident to happen. Different places of work can provide unique hazards such as heavy machinery or loads, electricity, harmful chemicals and sometimes psychological hazards. This is why businesses must have a health and safety policy in place to prevent injuries from occurring and having legalities involved.
One of the only reasons accidents are less likely to happen now is due to systems of prevention. In spite of all the precautions made, there are still a vast number of cases of injury every year caused in the workplace. In the modern day, health and safety isn’t just social responsibility; it should be regarded as an important business objective just like any other.
Most agree that producing these policies for your business can be quite arduous. Thankfully PIP Services offer training for people who will be in positions of authority. Most importantly we are the best provider of SSSTS London has. This provides a great introduction to health and safety on construction sites.
When people come to us for training we help them to understand the many regulations. That way they can manage construction sites effectively, including ensuring employees follow the health and safety policies in place. This will make accidents less likely.
In the process of improving health and safety on a site there are many things that need to be done, including producing an official document stating the policies within the workplace. With this you must be competent in showing how you plan, control, organise and review everything. Identifying hazards and assessing the risks is how you implement control measures. Ensuring these measures are still adequate, and continue to prevent accidents is what a business, by law, is responsible for.
