Ensuring the health and safety of your staff is an essential duty for any employer. If your company employs five people or more, you are required by law to have a written health and safety policy.
According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), over 27 million working days were lost due to workplace injury or work-related illness in the financial year 2011/12. In the previous year, 2010/11, workplace illness cost society an estimated £8.4 billion and workplace injury (including fatalities) an estimated £5.4 billion. Having a comprehensive health and safety policy that is universally acknowledged and adhered to in your organisation will protect your staff and your organisation.
