At first, Health & 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 safe is paramount. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 states that employers are responsible for ensuring all their employees are safe at work and are protected from possible hazards to their health.
All businesses have a duty of care to their employees to establish safe working environments. This 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
Ask yourself, where would your business be without the people. The last thing any employer wants are unhappy employees and unnecessary grievances related to workplace conditions. 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.

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.
