At first, Health and Safety and Employment Law may not seem connected. But they do have one major factor in common. They are both about people.
Making the workplace a safe place for people is paramount. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 states that employers are responsible for making sure that all their employees are safe in the workplace and are protected from possible hazards to their health.
All businesses have a duty of care to their employees to ensure safe working environments. That includes controlling risks to physical safety and employee wellbeing. When your HR department is proficient in current health and safety legislation, it strengthens the safeguarding abilities of an organisation.
A safe workplace:
- Promotes wellness and welfare
- Boosts commitment and morale
- Maximises productivity
- Minimises risk to employee injury
- Helps staff retention
- Meets legal and moral responsibilities
- Safeguards employees
- Reduces the cost of injury and illness at work
Health and Safety and Employment Law go hand in hand. It’s one entity, and it always should be. Ask yourself, where would your business be without the people?
The last thing any employer wants are unhappy employees and unnecessary grievances related to the conditions of the workplace. Compliance and commitment by organisations to providing an adequate working environment can have an extremely positive impact and demonstrates long-term investment in staff wellbeing.
So how do you manage your workforce and ensure that they are safe? Taking Health, Safety and Employment Law services from one provider means you can find everything you need all in one place, saving you time, money, and resources.
