One of the responsibilities of an employer in Birmingham is to ensure all employees’ health and safety while in the workplace. Health and Safety responsibility can encompass everything from providing appropriate PPE to workers, regular fire drills, labeling hazardous substances, and so on. These need all the seriousness it deserves!
Regardless of your line of business, human resources are the most valuable asset of any organisation. If employees’ health and safety requirements are not met, it can lead to discontentment and impede productivity. Also, it is essential to have proper health and safety practices in place to protect everyone including ─ you, your staff, and visitors to your premises. Failing this, you are at the risk of preventable accidents, avoidable expensive lawsuits, and prosecution.
