Why do places of work need Occupational Health & Safety
Health and Safety Legislation is a legal requirement for all workplaces however large or small which falls under criminal law. Failure to follow what are usually straightforward requirements, are punishable by prosecution, fines either to the company, and or managers and imprisonment for serious offences.
The Financial gains can be significant. – Preventative maintenance programme, monitoring sickness absence and investigating and responding to the causes of accidents, incidents and ill health along with considering health and welfare issues of employees will minimise the total amount of unnecessary waste and expenditure.
This will in turn also have a significant impact on saving on the hidden costs due to loss of time and uninsurable costs, along with preventing loss of production, legal costs and fines.
