The Health and Safety Executive has developed a range of online services to help small and medium sized companies better understand health and safety issues. Arranged into three sections, the services and tools are designed to help business owners understand what to do regarding health and safety and avoid unnecessary paperwork and time.
The three sections include a guide for basic information, advice on common health and safety hazards and online risk assessment templates.
Health and safety is becoming increasingly important and these tools are designed to be used by all small and medium sized companies. They can be found on the Health and Safety Executive’s website: www.hse.gov.uk
