Health & Safety

Small business Health & Safety is a hassle, but it is important for employers to ensure that the health and wellbeing of their employees is protected. It is also a legal requirement with potentially large costs and penalties if you don’t follow the law.

It is very daunting for a small business to try to find out what it needs to do regarding Health and Safety. We can help.

We include some Health & Safety information and tools as part of our citrusHR service, to make it easier for employers to understand and manage their small business’ Health and Safety. And we can arrange any extra support you might need, too.

How our small business Health & Safety support works

Health and safety needs will vary widely depending on the activity and location of your company. We provide a Health and Safety Policy, Guide and checklists which will be sufficient for a large number of small businesses, particularly those that are office-based.

You can call us with any Health & Safety questions you might have, and talk to a fully qualified Health & Safety consultant about them. We do not employ these consultants directly but work with a number of experienced consultants around the country.

You can also use our custom-built small business HR software to help comply with health and safety law. Our web-based software will store details of any health and safety appointments you have made, such as fire wardens or first aiders, and will remind you if any of these people leave so that you have time to train or appoint other members of your team. If you want you can give your staff access to this, too, and they can then see where your first aid kit is stored, who to talk to about first aid or fires, and where to assemble in the event of a fire.

Our consultants can write a bespoke Health and safety policy for you and organise a site visit to review your premises and its Health & Safety needs if you would like, for an extra charge. We recommend this for some types of companies.
