Health and safety for small businesses

Published:  08 November, 2012

LONDON: The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has a new package of online guidance for small businesses, "putting everything together in one place" it says.

The Health and Safety Toolbox provides guidance on specific risks and was developed with the support of small businesses.
 Judith Hackitt, chair of the HSE, said: "This package is everything small and low risk businesses could need to manage health and safety, online and free.

"It will help businesses save time and money by getting them focusing on the real risks, guiding them to what is relevant for them and steering them away from what's not."
"Businesses can use the guidance in association with their own health and safety signage, while also being able to access simple guides and interactive tools on how to identify, assess and control common workplace hazards."
