Prevention better than cure with workplace safety

Breaching UK Health & Safety Executive guidelines could become far more expensive as of October, according to reports.

 
PRLog - Aug. 31, 2012 - Breaching UK Health & Safety Executive guidelines could become far more expensive as of October, according to reports. Under new proposals, a Fee For Intervention of £124 per hour will be recouped from any negligent company, so the overall expense relating to poor health and safety management could quickly add up.

Not least as the new procedure would seek to charge the fee for administration and investigation, two tasks notoriously difficult to predict in terms of timescales. It’s certainly food for thought every boss and manager should really have digested long before now, supporting the theory businesses should safeguard against such situations, rather than deal with them as and when they arise.

An effective way to do this is by focusing on risk solutions, compliance and risk software, and a health and safety management system that's up to the task. Accidents, injuries, and similar incidents in the workplace are never good. They can prove highly expensive, reduce morale and lead to ongoing absences, to name just three potential repercussions.

But, by taking the aforementioned steps a firm can guarantee it stays up to date with the latest requirements, and any changes to laws relating to its industry. Perhaps most importantly of all, companies will also avoid unnecessary risks to staff that don’t breach HSE guidelines, but could prove dangerous in unfortunate circumstances. In short, the focus should be on perfecting in house procedures in order to limit long-winded, costly official processes, notorious for their complexity amongst anyone who has had dealings in this area.
