Health and safety management should be a straightforward part of managing your business as a whole. It involves practical steps that protect people from harm and at the same time protect the future success of your business. There are legal health and safety requirements that you have to meet, but accidents also cost money and time – people off work, material costs and damage to buildings, plant or product. These costs are often not covered by insurance. This book explains what the law requires, and helps you put it into practice.
